Julie, Master Stylist - Founder


Visionary and salon owner, Julie Eischens is a multi-talented business woman and master stylist. She opened Future Concepts Studio + Spa in 1993, focused on a dream to create a salon dedicated to superior customer service. ”I wanted to create an exceptional studio + spa experience supported by an elite team of beauty experts, superior products and state-of -the-art educational opportunities – allowing us to provide our guests with the latest styles, trends and therapeutic techniques,” stated Eischens.


Before opening the doors to Future Concepts Studio and Spa, Julie earned her cosmetology license and worked as a stylist. The art of beauty comes naturally to Julie who knew at a very young age that she wanted a career in the beauty industry. “Back then I never dreamed that I would have my own salon. But it has been one of my most gratifying achievements,” explained Eischens.

A true advocate of continual education, all new team members, regardless of previous experience, are required to go through the in-house training program directed and instructed by Julie. The training program is tailored to each student and can last as long as 26 weeks. This program helps to ensure that every team member at Future Concepts Studio + Spa has the technical skills and product knowledge required to serve you. In addition to the in-house training, Julie is a national trainer/educator for Surface. She travels across the country leading salon business seminars, Surface product knowledge and the Surface cutting and straightening systems at regional and national hair shows.

“At Future Concepts Studio + Spa our goal is to awaken and revitalize the natural beauty in each of us.”
