Although it didn?t seem adventurous or sensational like some other professions, Julie Korff dreamt of becoming a hairstylist as a kid. While most other people grew up to realize they?d never actualize their childhood goal of becoming an astronaut, an archaeologist, or football quarterback Joe Montana, Korff went on to achieve her dream, traveling to New York and Beverly Hills to learn the art of hairstyling. Today she works in the San Diego area, where she snips and styles within the upscale Envision Salon & Spa.

Having crafted customized hairdos since 1999, Julie has a developed a particular knack for coloring. Rather than using cheap products or melted Crayola crayons, she opts for top-quality dyes from brands such as Framesi 2001, Schwarzkopf Professional, and Redken.
