Coming from a small town to Seattle, I have found inspiration in the diversity, originality, and artistic nature of my new home. Behind the chair my passion is for crafting custom styles for all hair types. I love working with all things creative, wild, and bold!
When I joined the GaryManuel team I knew I was getting involved with a salon that suited my desire for integrity, innovation, and high standards. Now that I’ve been with the company for over 10 years I’ve come to realize with that strong foundation in place, what truly keeps me coming back to the chair everyday is my connection to my clients. Making my friends feel beautiful has been more rewarding than I could have ever imagined.
After teaching at the Aveda Institute for 7 years, I now love to continue enhancing the growth of our advanced education stylists at our South Lake Union location. Although I love to experiment with fashion colors and unique undercut styles, I truly love the art of blending, smudging, and melting together hair color. And of course creating a haircut to accentuate that.

Hi, I’m Envy! I’m originally from the desert in California but moved and grew up in Redmond; I’ve been in Seattle for a few years now. I love animals of all kinds, just got into cooking, and I’m attempting to keep cacti and succulents alive. I love working for Gary Manuel, I feel like I’m a part of a family and that’s something special that I’ve never had before. Personally, I needed somewhere that gave me education, inspiration and motivation, and let me tell you Gary Manuel hasn’t disappointed. My skills are forever expanding, but I love cutting and coloring, not to mention I’ll give you a killer blow dry. Come see me at The Studio, Tuesday through Saturday.
My name is Bailey and I went into hair, because I believe in the power of confidence. When we look good we feel good. I chose Gary Manuel because I love the ever changing drive for education and the constant strive for good customer service.
My passion in hair is dimensional hair color of all kinds, (blondes, redheads, full foils, and balayaged gals... I’m looking at you) and short cuts (lobs, bobs and pixies of all kinds).

Specialization is part of what drew me towards Gary Manuel and the fact that they don't do it. We have not only the availability but responsibility to become more than familiar with all types of color and cutting techniques as well as other services (perms, relaxers, Brazilians, extensions, etc.) That being said what I truly love to do are transformations. Taking someone from one look into a totally fresh one- whether it's taking off 12” and adding highlights or putting in extensions and coloring the hair to a blue/black.
I went to the Gary Manuel Aveda Institute on Capitol Hill.
I grew up in a small town about 40 minutes NE of Seattle called Monroe. It might have been smaller but we made sure it wasn't too quiet!
When timing and weather permit my husband and I love to drive up to the mountains, wherever they may be, to discover new trails or hit the slopes with our friends and snowboards. When time doesn't permit those I love to serve at my home church in Monroe, read copiously, or eventually finish watching all 12 seasons of Bones.
