Part of what makes Julie Martin the stylist she is today has a lot to do with her experiences on both sides of the chair. She kicked off her career as a professional model, getting an impromptu apprenticeship in the types of tricks and techniques that go into creating a magazine-quality look. Eventually, she channeled that experience—along with some time spent training as a Paul Mitchell stylist—into her own boutique.
At La Vita Salon, she treats her clients like models in their own fashion shoot, talking through details and style preferences to pull off a look original to that client. In addition to haircuts and blowouts, Julie applies professional color and constructs elegant updos that increase her clients chances of getting voted “Most Updone” for the office yearbook.
