About A Visual Impact Hair Studio

A Visual Impact Hair StylistsHi! My name is Julie Russell, and I am the owner and operator of A Visual Impact Hair Studio. We have three Experienced and Motivated Stylists at your service!

My Beauty Salon was born on October 2, 2001, in a tiny room in the back of a women’s only gym, “The Fitness Network.” Nine months later, in June of 2002, I expanded the Salon and added another stylist.

We moved to our current location in June of 2011. This location offers a relaxing and layed back atmosphere. We have numerous dedicated clients to which we are so thankful for. We look forward to meeting you and adding New clients to our family . We specialize in Chemicals , and we know why we do what we do when applying these to your hair.

Our Salon is open 5 days a week: Tuesday 4 PM – 7 PM, Wednesday 11 AM – 7 PM, Thursday & Friday 9 AM – 7 PM, and Saturday 9 AM – 2 PM. We start at 9AM and close when the last appointment is completely happy. When you call you will either speak to one of our staff, or our voicemail system, that will direct you to our main mailbox. Should you call during business hours and get our voicemail, it is more than likely because both of our phone lines were active when you called. Please leave a message or call back, whichever is more convenient for you.

We would like to take this opportunity to invite you into our Salon! Come by, meet us, have a cup of coffee, and ask any questions you may have. Our staff is trained to be exceptional listeners and are updated on the latest styles and trends for the whole family.
