Knoxville-based Salon Visage has led the way since 1985 in making forward-thinking decisions that provide the best possible experience for both clients and staff. In the late 80s they were the first Knoxville salon to go smoke-free, as well as being the first to be a completely specialized salon allowing expertise in cutting and color to shine through.

Frank Gambuzza, co-owner of Salon Visage, shared the salon’s new direction: "We’re revolutionizing our approach once more by switching to a Monday-Friday operation, effective at the close of 2023. The modern landscape calls for a better work-life integration, and we’re daring to defy industry norms to offer just that. Our 'Visage family'—both staff and clients—will benefit from longer weekday hours while preserving their weekends."

The new schedule will begin on January 8, 2024, and booking for 2024 is underway now.

Co-owner Belinda Gambuzza elaborated: "This decision wasn't just based on data; it's the result of an ongoing dialogue with our clients and team. We're committed to accommodating those who might find the shift challenging, ensuring they can still easily book appointments."

Frank Gambuzza added a forward-looking note: "Salon Visage has consistently been a trendsetter. After 38 years in the game, we're just warming up."
