From very humble beginnings, Changes Hairstyling and City Spa have enjoyed an amazing 30 years thanks to loyal guests and community support.
Changes evolved from a children’s salon to a full service hair salon serving the needs of the entire family. In 2001, Changes celebrated the addition of City Spa, which offers guests an hourly retreat or a daycation.
Not only does Changes care for its guests in a first-class manner, Changes staff are treated to first-class training. Some have trained globally, while others have the global experience brought to them. By partnering with manufacturers and distributors, Changes provides in-house education and training from the world’s best artists—Vidal Sassoon, Bumble + bumble, Davines, Wella, and Rhonda Allison.
“You are never done getting better,” says Changes owner Norma Dorey. During her 30+-year career in the beauty industry, Norma has been responsible for the growth and training of a generation of technicians. Through its partnership with state of Virginia, Changes offers an apprenticeship program, which includes free instruction and paid training to employees who wish to pursue a cosmetology career.
Committed to our local community…
Changes’ commitment to the community has never wavered, even during sluggish economic times. Changes is a strong supporter of local school fundraisers, the arts community, and various local charities. In 2014, we gave over $8,000 to local charities. In addition, each year Changes Hairstyling and City Spa partner with local businesses to host fashion shows to benefit Hope House Foundation, food drives for The Food Bank, and toy drives for Edmarc Hospice for Children. Thanks to loyal guests, Changes is a local business that supports the community and reaches out for local causes.
