As a Theatre major at Towson University, Liz had the opportunity to learn all aspects of production, including costume and set design. She has always had an eye for the Aesthetics. Even though much of her training at Towson involved being on the stage, she found herself being drawn to help those backstage with hair and makeup. After completing her Bachelor of Arts a semester early, Liz packed her dreams and set off to a journey in New Jersey where she continued her Beauty education at Artistic Academy in Morris Plains. Liz began her career at Zoku Salon in Summit while attending Cosmetology school. At Zoku, she had the amazing opportunity to learn all aspects of the Beauty business first hand. She was blessed to have learned in depth Color theories, applications and lines, such as Goldwell, L’Oreal, Redken and Schwarzkopf from New York City’s finest Colorists. As a Color Specialist, Liz brings life to all types of hair, combining foiling and balayage techniques she expanded on in NYC. Liz believes in embracing the hair’s natural texture and creating accustomed color palettes that bring out the very best of her client’s skin tones.

Julie (Floor Manager)
Julie got her start in the salon industry early in high school experimenting with her own hair. She has always had a passion for creative looks, bright colors and would often come up with new concepts for her hair stylist to try on her. While Julie would get her hair done in the salon, she would ask her stylist question after question. Impressed with Julie’s enthusiasm for hair, outgoing personality, and artistic eye she encouraged her to go to cosmetology school.
Julie graduated from Monmouth County Vocational School in 2008 and immediately began working as an assistant at 3-Sixty Hair and Nail Salon in Eatontown. She continued her education after school, taking classes and receiving certifications in Redken color, keratin treatments, waxing, and formal hairstyling. After about a year, she moved to a salon in Sea Bright where she was a full time hair stylist. While she loved interacting with her clients and making them look and feel beautiful, she still felt like something was missing. It wasn’t long before Julie realized as much as she loves styling hair, she would be better utilized as a manager.
As the Floor Manager of L Studio, Julie has never felt more at home. She prides herself on providing excellent customer service to every client who walks through the door and our clients would agree!
