The 31 Team
“Building a business and contributing to the Marysville community has been such an honor. Creating a sacred space where guests, especially women, can come to relax, rejuvenate and feel pampered has always been my goal.”
Cherishing the interaction and connection with all who walk through the door at Studio 31, Gwen strives to make each guest feel welcome and completely at home. Mentoring and building her staff of highly trained stylists is of the upmost importance to ensure every guest not only has a great experience, but is completely satisfied with their look when they walk out the door.
As a stylist working behind the chair, she prides herself in constantly staying ahead of the trends while keeping in mind that EVERY guest is different and needs individual, unique and beautiful hair. She believes that beautiful hair starts with healthy hair. Focusing on helping clients get desired results while maintaining the integrity of their hair is of utmost importance. Certified in hand-tied hair extensions, she loves to utilize this innovative installation method to help her guests achieve their dream hair while maintaining the health of the natural hair. Coupled with extreme passion for dimensional blondes and the latest artistic coloring techniques, she is a master at hair color. She stays updated on all the latest trends and places high value on listening and understanding her guests’ needs. She loves to step outside the box with her unlimited creativity.
When she's not in the salon, she enjoys spending time at home with her husband and all her animals, cooking and gardening. Any chance she can get to travel or be wake surfing behind their boat, she's there. "I love to be outside enjoying all that this beautiful life has to offer!"
