Julie Burnett

Julie decided at a very young age that her true passion was the hair and makeup industry. She began her love for the industry at the age of 13. She began shadowing a hairstylist who took Julie to hair show classes and allowed her to help in her salon on weekends. From that point forward Julie set out to master her first true love. After receiving certifications as a makeup artist she began doing makeup at hair shows on professional models. After completing her cosmetology licensing Julie apprenticed at Capello's Salon in New York. While apprenticing she graduated from the masters Cutting Course at the renowned Pivot Point Academy in Chicago. Realizing her true passion in hair was color, Julie became a color educator for Loreal Hair color. At this point Julie took her talents to the red carpet and began working as a platform artist. She had the privilege to work along side well renowned stylist Scott Cole in New York. After moving to Colorado in September 2000 Julie received her Colorado License and began working here in Littleton ,Colorado. Over the past 12 years not only has Julie been able to create a fabulous clientele through referral but has also been able to own and operate her own salon. Marchello's Salon opened in June or 2009. Due to her immense growth in that time, in December 2012 Julie opened a larger more dynamic location. Her goal for the salon is to help pay it forward to our community that has warmly embraced her and her family. When you arrive at Marchello's you can expect a happy friendly welcome. You are very important to us and you will always be treated this way. I look forward to meeting each and every one of you.
