The story of Illusions Hair and Nail Specialists began almost a decade before we first opened our doors.
Newly graduated and eager to make our marks on the world, good fortune
brought us together in the early part of the 1980's. Over the years, we
became close friends, and our friendships grew into family.
After about nine years together, our family members set out to explore new paths, carrying our talents to other salons.
In 1990, with Scott in the lead, a small contingent opened Illusions in
Fort Mitchell. Meanwhile, Teri was contemplating a shop of her own.
With several viable options before her, Teri chose the strength of
family, joining us at Illusions. Four years later, she became Scott's
business partner. She became the majority owner in 2006 after Scott
elected to scale back his role in the business.
The following year, a new business condo project was announced and Teri
saw an opportunity for a new updated shop. She convinced us that the
time was right, and in early January, 2008, we moved to our beautiful new
home in Erlanger.
Some of us have been together the whole time, and some are newer to our
family, but we have all been cosmetologists for many years.
We were teenagers when we started, and we are still teenagers at heart.
We think that some of us will never grow up. OK, most of us!
We are very much a family. And we want you, our extended family, to know that you are always welcome in our home.
