Julie Ruiz

Julie’s passion is all about hair. Creative, versatile and passionate about her craft, Julie has been able to establish herself as a successful hairstylist for over 30 years. Julie got her cosmetology license at Wayne’s beauty college in Santa Cruz and then moved to San Francisco to soak up the eclectic street style and culture the city had to offer. After eight years she moved to Spain for the next big adventure, where she traveled all over Europe, doing hair, and teaching English.

It was there Julie honed her unique artistic eye, inspired by the architecture, fashion and vibrancy of Spanish life. Julie came back to Santa Cruz after 3 years and opened her first salon which ran successfully for 17 years, before splitting off and opening her dream space, Alchemy Haus of Hair, with Family/friend soul sister Alli. An oasis where the goal is for you to feel nurtured and listened to, where great conversation is always flowing and you leave feeling beautiful inside and out. Julie credits her wide range of knowledge, education and cultural influence as a key to her success. Her talent also lies in embracing the clients natural hair texture and crafting an effortless look that caters to their lifestyle.

Julie is so grateful for her clientele, her joy comes from working with her clients to actualize their vision, having soulful conversations and being creative together. When Julie is not in the salon she is walking on the beach or in the redwoods or curled up reading a book, doing yoga and spending time with her two beautiful daughters and her dog.
