GEM Has Moved

GEM is now located at Refine, a high-end salon at The Village at Beardslee Crossing in Bothell. Thanks to all of you, GEM enjoyed thirteen successful years at Carillon Point!


In April of this year, Carillon Properties abruptly terminated our lease with no grounds, but to say they were “re-tenanting” the plaza. As you know, GEM was thriving with five star reviews so this was a shock to all of us. Carillon Properties, without my knowledge, signed my lease over to William and Petra Hines, husband and wife hairstylists working in GEM at the time. Sadly but understandably, many of the stylists I had enjoyed working with for more than thirteen years dispersed to find new opportunities. If you are trying to track down your stylists' new location, you can email me and I will be happy to give you their contact info.


For the last six months, I searched to find a new location for GEM. I purchased Refine in September and am excited to invite you all to visit me and my talented new stylists. Formerly a men’s grooming salon, Refine (a GEM salon), now serves both men and women. Just off 405, Refine is easily accessible and boasts ample, free parking. It sits adjacent to several dining options, including Beardslee Public House, Sushi Chinoise, Potbelly Sandwich Shop and Starbucks and shares the plaza with an array of other great businesses. At present, you can book appointments with me both through the GEM website online booking option, by calling Refine at (425) 659-3060 or by visiting the Refine site at I so look forward to seeing you again!
