Berkley - Owner

I thought Groove Jet Salon + Spa would be the perfect fit for me since I am a princess in my own right, and all about beauty, pampering and attention. I can’t think of a better business to be a part of than a business whose sole purpose is to help you enjoy these same pleasures. I am very picky and constantly implore the staff to do better by you. If you ever wish to relay suggestions or comments to the owner, e-mail me at Berkley@GrooveJetSalon.com

Brandy - Manager, Stylist, Salon/Network Educator

Brandy came to Groove Jet Salon in 2005.  She is a self-proclaimed obsessive-compulsive perfectionist, who puts the "cute" in acute attention to detail. She believes that hair should be functional, while complimenting each individual guest. Brandy loves working with all textures of hair.  Her coloring is all about beautiful natural creations: fresh, current and spicy. And is most known for her gorgeous Balayage and Hair Painted guests. She's drawn to classic shapes and strong, clean lines, finding inspiration from all eras but always creating a modern twist with her straight razor. And she firmly believes “If you don’t look at history, you have no future”, always celebrating the fundamentals of hairdressing. She also loves to give her guests the hair they dream of -- being a certified Hair Dreams Extensionist and certified in Bio Ionic’s Retex and Kerasmooth straightening systems.

Brandy is addicted to going to Bumble & bumble University in NYC and attends workshops bi-yearly to keep fine-tuning her techniques and developing her eye for detail.  And looks forward to joining Bumble and bumble backstage for NYFW S/S 2016.

Brandy is our resident Bumble & bumble Network Educator, as well as Bio Ionic Educator and helps our apprentices to become talented stylists.  She feels sharing information with others deepens her understanding of the information she is teaching.

Emily - Stylist

Emily is a new to the Wilmington area, but not new to the world of hair and beauty!  After graduating from Paul Mitchell the School in 2008, she quickly found a Bumble and bumble exclusive salon to call home.  It was there that she expanded her knowledge of hair color and cutting. From pixies to bobs to long layered looks, she truly enhoys seeking the best cut suitable to face shape and lifestyle. Coloring hair ranging from natural looks to pops of vibrate hues, Emily has no preference in the spectrum of colors.

She loves working with brides and women celebrating special events.  She adores creating updos, special makeup and precise spray tanning, making her guest feel and look beautiful for their important function.

Emily began her hair career in Connecticut.  She was fortunate to be close to NYC where she was able to partake in many Bumble and bumble University classes and attend multiple hair and makeup shows.  Emily prides herself on keeping current on education and the latest trends.  

When not at the salon, Emily enjoys spending time with her family and friends!  She loves to travel and visit new places. She also loves cooking and baking.  Creativity is top on her list!

Jaime-Colleen - Massage Therapist

Whether you are looking to simply relax with a Swedish style,  tap into the power of Hot Stones, enjoy the grace and energy of Thai Yoga massage or benefit from focused Deep Tissue, J.C.'s mindset is one of comfort and compassion, along with education and ease.  She prides herself on her fireball energy and dedication to the ancient craft of Massage Therapy and she would love to share her passion about the healing power of touch with you.

Originally from Salt Lake City, JC has traveled and lived all over the USA, from NYC to San Diego.  But she has chosen to put down roots in Wilmington to enjoy the prettiest sunsets anywhere in the country and relax in the slow, southern charm, which won her over.

In JC’s spare time, you might find her romping around with her big, goofy dog Cooley, or reading one of the many comic books in her collection, sewing or knitting up a storm, or whipping up something yummy to eat (she was a pastry chef before becoming a MT).  How perfect for Groove Jet to have this gypsy settle down with us!

Kimberly - Stylist, Salon/Network Educator

Kim has been in the beauty industry since 2003. Over the years, she has worked in salons throughout the country, but has now put down roots here in Wilmington, where she has lived since 2011. Her inspiration here comes from the effortless beauty and grace of the ocean, as well as the cadence and structure of our historic downtown community.

Kim loves making authentic connections with her guests, giving her undivided attention, and collaborating with them to create a custom look that suits their personality and lifestyle.  She particularly likes to enhance the natural, inherent beauty that makes each person unique.  One of Kim's fortes is creating natural, beachy highlights with long flowing layers.  She specializes in Balayage and foil highlights.

She also has advanced training in Men's Grooming and has a strong male clientele.  She takes pride in making sure they look impeccable, even between appointments, with complimentary clean-ups.

While she was in Cosmetology School, Kim discovered she also had a knack for Esthectics, and specializes in facial waxing. 

In addition to beng a talented stylist, Kim is also a Bumble and bumble Network Educator.  She stays inspired by traveling to NYC periodically to take classes at Bumble and bumble University, and helps take that culture back to Groove Jet.

Kim believes true beauty radiates from inner health - both physically and spiritually.  Kim finds creative expression through yoga, and teaches a couple classes a week in addition to her job at Groove Jet.She also loves reading and being outdoors where she can enjoy the beauty of creation.

A native from Pembroke, NC, Lee graduated from Cape Fear Community College's Cosmetology Program in 2011.  In 2014, he moved to Boone, NC but returned to Wilmington in December 2016.
