Katie Strange said she and her business partner Jocelyn Jones are part of the Barbie generation.
“I remember curling and styling my Barbies,” Strange said. “As I continued to get older, my passion and interest in hair also grew. Styling friends’ and family members’ hair and always coloring my own, I was always thinking about what I could try or do next. I found each new look exciting. I began to realize that I could actually design people’s style dreams as a career.”
Strange and Jones recently opened Vision Beauty, an upscale hair salon, at 16000 Prosperity Dr., Unit 200, Suite 4, in Noblesville.
Strange and Jones had worked together since 2018 at another salon In Noblesville.
“We became great friends very quickly and knew we could work well together,” Strange said. “We have the same work ethics and the same goals. One day, we agreed, we both wanted to open our own salon, and, after a period of time, we agreed that we both wanted to open our own salon together. We listen to our guests. We get to know them, and that’s how we come up with the anticipated end result. The location was very important to us. We both live in different counties, outside of Hamilton, though we felt that it was important to stay in or near Noblesville since that is where we came from.
“We wanted to travel to our guests rather than have them have to travel to us.”
Strange, who grew up in Carmel, lives in McCordsville. Jones lives in Ingalls.
“We’ve been the clients,” Jones said. “We know how it feels to envision what you will look like at the end of a visit. So many people are dwelling on negatives nowadays. It’s up to us to have you look in the mirror and see something positive and beautiful.”
Both graduated from Aveda Institute in Indianapolis. Jones graduated in February 2017. Strange graduated in March 2018.
“Bring us your vision and we will create it, or come in with a blank slate and we will create your look together,” Strange said. “We offer a wide variety of hair services, from cuts for the whole family to all color services, including color corrections.”
