Julie's Bio

Hi, I'm Julie Giles and I began my career as a Cosmetologist 15 years ago when I graduated from Gene Juarez Academy of Beauty at the top of my class with an award for my design work. Since then I have remained committed to continuing my education with classes in design and color that have taken me all over the world, the most recent being in Milan, Italy.

My advanced training from Bumble and Bumble and Crew in design and certification as a color specialist in the Logics color line help me to provide high quality cuts and color for both men and women.

In 2005, I decided to pursue my education on a different level and in 2009 received a degree in business from Seattle Central as well as a certificate in business management from the University of Washington.

This year I was able to put my new degree to use when my business partner and I had the opportunity to purchase the salon we have worked at for the last 8 years.

Formerly known as Nucleus, our new place, Swagger is a quaint neighborhood salon located on Capitol Hill in Seattle. Please click on the link to check out our website.

In addition to the daily challenges of running a salon and taking care of my clients, I also enjoy business consulting on the side and have assisted several of my clients in starting businesses of their own.

So, whatever your needs may be, I'll look forward to seeing you in the salon. I'm sure we'll have a lot to talk about and you'll leave looking and feeling ready to take on the world.
