Our Story

By Founder – Julie Eischens

For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by hair design and personal beauty care. Like many young girls, I loved to play dress-up with my sisters and girlfriends. We loved to compete by putting together the most beautiful outfits and accessories from our treasure chest of Grandma’s hand-me-downs. For me, the most enjoyable part of dressing up was having the opportunity to style everyone’s hair. By the time I was 12 years old, I knew I wanted to be a hairstylist.

After graduating from Jefferson High School in Bloomington, MN, I enrolled in St. Cloud Beauty College. Upon earning my cosmetology license in 1988, I eagerly entered the workforce to pursue my life’s passion as a hairstylist. Ironically, my career started working in a salon formerly located where Future Concepts Studio + Spa is today.

As I began to successfully build my clientele as a stylist, I discovered my need to find a salon where I could further expand my professional skills and education. I was fortunate to be offered an opportunity to work along side a master stylist, learning advanced techniques and the vital role customer service plays in building a successful business. It was this realization that inspired me to start my own salon – where I could ensure the expectations and needs of my guests were met, each and every visit.

Through the encouragement of my family, friends and guests, Future Concepts Studio + Spa opened on August 16, 1993. I am very proud of what we have created; a salon + spa dedicated to superior customer service. In addition, we believe in supporting our skilled team with on-going educational opportunities, allowing us to provide our guests with the latest styles and trends, outstanding products and personalized therapeutic techniques. At Future Concepts Studio + Spa our goal is to awaken and revitalized the natural beauty in each of us.

I encourage you to come visit Future Concepts Studio + Spa and experience the difference an outstanding team of beauty and therapeutic experts, dedicated to meeting your every need, will make in your life.
