Hair & Makeup Artist/Salon Educator/Wedding Consultant
Hello beauties! I'm Julia! I have been in the industry for about four years. I love keeping up with the newest trends and exploring new techniques in the salon. Balayage is probably one of my favorite and most requested service that I offer, but I also have a love for all other colors including fashion shades. When wedding season is in full swing is when I am thriving. Bridal hair and makeup is such a beautiful experience to have with my guests and knowing I can be there to help them feel their best selves is one of the reasons I do what I do. On top of being a hair and makeup artist, I also have a large focus on education and social media. At Salon 209, I am an associate and salon educator, which means I help train in any new talent as well as the other artists in the salon. Becoming a Summit Social Media Jedi was such a fun goal for me to achieve, with this I am able to help other stylists from all over enhance their social media presence so that our guests are able to see us in every light possible. I can't wait to elevate your experience at Salon 209!

Rising Star/Level 1
Hair & Makeup Artist/Wedding Specialist
Hi I’m Mariah! I’ve been in the industry for over a year and graduated from Josef's School of Hair Skin & Body. I’ve always had this passion for hair and makeup. Before I became a cosmetologist I would spend many hours on YouTube learning and trying to better myself at both. It was always my favorite part of the day! I love being able to make people feel beautiful and happy! Some of my favorite services to do in the salon are highlights, balayage, color melts and any kind of styling! Wedding days are always my favorite. Whether it’s in the salon or on site, I’m always excited to do wedding hair or makeup! I love to go to as much educational classes as possible, many in Fargo. I even got the chance to go to Matrix Destination in Florida and get education from some of the top best hair stylists! I also like getting on the creative side and make big avant-garde hair pieces. It’s something you don’t see very often and it gets me thinking outside of the box! Going to educational classes and making crazy hair pieces is what makes me excited and confident enough to do what I do in the salon. I bring back what I have learned and I put all of my creativeness into each and every client!
