owner & stylist
Hi GEMs, I’m Taylor, the one who birthed GEM in October 2019 Being a Gemini is not the reason for the name, although it could work.. Crystals & Gemstones inspired the name of the salon, no cut or color is the exact same
I attended cosmetology school during high school and became licensed the year I graduated in 2010. I knew almost immediately that I wanted to own a salon one day. First, I had a dream to work for Nick Arrojo, and during the years 2015-2017 I did just that. At ARROJO I was trained in all things hair color (which inspired GEMS training program) I LOVE cutting hair but it’s safe to say my favorite service to provide is any color service. As an artist, I appreciate the creative outlet it gives me and the self expression it offers my clients. My hobbies include shoes , watching mindless tv shows & traveling A fun fact about myself: I’ve been to 10+ different countries/islands & i’m always looking forward to the next but first an oat milk shaken espresso or a cold brew with almond milk..To the clients who have been along for the entire ride and for the new faces I see throughout the salon on a weekly basis, thank you for supporting my small business and (not to be cheesy but) my dream come true!
My name is Brittany & I’ve been licensed since 2014, after graduating cosmetology school at Delcastle Vo-Tech High school. I’ve worked along side Taylor since March 2019 @ studio TK. I came along for the ride when she opened up GEM Beauty Co. & haven’t looked back since My favorite service to provide is anything lightening.. I could foil for days & love putting my creative mind to work when free hand panting. I was born March 29th so I guess that means I’m an Aries . I’m a very simple but picky eater.. chicken tendys, and Mac & cheese are my go to. I’m so picky I don’t drink coffee. If you ever want to treat your girl I love a good strawberry lemonade refresher or Coolatta. I enjoy the beach, riding trails on my 4wheeler, my parents pool & making memories with my boyfriend, Cody our dogs Piper & Bruno. Hope to get my hands in your hair soon
As most of you know, I’m estymellyyelly and for those who don’t; hi! I’m melanie! I’m a licensed esthetician and I’ve been licensed since 2018 and started slaying at GEM in 2019. I love a good before and after transformation of a full set of lashes! I’m a Taurus so my hobbies include eating & sleeping with an occasional scary movie here and there. I adopted two pitbulls (cats) who I adore and live for. When you make your appointment to see me and don’t want to come empty handed I love a cold brew with oat milk or cream from ANYWHERE & if you ever stop at a gas station on the way to GEM I’ll happily take a pickle in a bag or any oh snap!
Hey y’all I’m Courtney !!!
I started in the hair industry back in 2017 after graduating from Middletown high ! I chased my dreams, enrolled in Schilling and Douglas and graduated from there with my cosmetology license in 2019. Shortly after I started working at GEM September 25, 2019! If you don’t know already I’m OBSESSED with any blonding service ! Full foil , maximum blonding , hairpainting , if it involves making your hair blonde it has my name ALL over it! I’m a Scorpio but not really by the book Scorpio I’m more of the loving and sensitive kind, I definitely wear my heart on my sleeve! My family and my best pals take up all my free time. If my toes aren’t in the sand, catch me in my converse sitting outside hopefully near a fire. Games night are also one of my faves, I love a serious game of uno or sequence ! I’m not too much of a coffee gal, more so a sugar free redbull or a Celsius ! Give this girl a grilled chicken Cesar salad and I’m in love ! I hope to see you soon!
Hi GEMs, my name is Sara & I’ve been at GEM since end of June 2020! Licensed for 5 years, graduated Schilling-Douglas in 2017. I love creating custom lived in blondes using various painting techniques! It makes for a one of a kind result for each guest! As a true Sagittarius, I love to travel any chance I get. I love going to concerts & binge watching shows with my cat Luna on my lap (usually New Girl or Criminal Minds on repeat). I love ice cream & Taco Bell (fun fact: I have a Taco Bell tattoo!) To keep us going on a long day, I’ll take an iced blonde vanilla latte with oatmilk
Hi guys! I’m Samantha. I’ve been licensed since 2016 and in the industry since 2015. I’ve been at GEM since September 2020. I’m a sucker for a light and bright blonde with a subtle root tap for a seamless grow out. I love the way it’s the best of both worlds; being as blonde as possible while also growing out super natural and beautiful! I’m a Virgo, whatever that means. Outside of the salon I love spending time with my husband Logan, my two dogs Dakota and Brandon, my family, and my friends. I love pop culture and a good trashy reality show. I love French fries, cinnamon rolls, & chicken fingers. To wash all of that down my go to coffee order is an iced caramel coffee with almond milk! Fun fact about me is that anytime I hear a Celine Dion song, I can’t help myself but perform! Hope to see you soon
