Julie’s love for hair began at a young age, as she braided and styled just about anyone who would let her. Throughout the years, it seemed as if her passion become apparent to everyone except herself! She took a brief detour into nursing, before realizing that it wasn’t her place – she needed to be able to help people, but also be creative and artistic. In the pursuit of happiness, she dove head first into the beauty industry as an assistant at Zandi K and knew very soon after that this was the right path. She strives to master her craft, learning from the best mentors in her ZK family, with a special interest in updos and special occasion styles. She truly believes that self esteem and happiness are the key to helping people shine, and is inspired to one day provide haircuts to those in need. Outside of the salon, you can find Julie out on mini adventures with her 2 snow dogs. She loves to snowboard, hike, practice yoga and travel as much as she can!
