Our Story

In 1977 Visible Changes began a revolution in the hairdressing industry.


In 1977, Visible Changes began a revolution in the hairdressing industry with a company that delivered high quality services from well-trained stylists. Maryanne McCormack began with one salon in Greenspoint Mall in Houston, Texas, and the company has grown to include 16 salons across the state of Texas. Today, Visible Changes has hair salons located in major malls in Houston, Austin, San Antonio and Dallas.

Over the years Visible Changes salons have become known for outstanding customer service, creative and innovative styles and most importantly our well-educated, talented team. The creative work from Visible Changes has been featured in Passion, Styles and Stylists magazines, and in fashion publications around the world.


Visible Changes was recognized in 1982 by Intercoiffure, an organization that extends its membership to only the finest hair designers in the world. Visible Changes was listed twice as one of INC Magazines’ fastest growing companies, and in 2006, Visible Changes won Salon Entrepreneur of the Year at the Global Salon Business Awards in Barcelona, Spain.

Our award winning haircutting system was created by founder Maryanne McCormack after years of personal study under such hairstyling pioneers as Paul Mitchell. At Visible Changes, we require all new staff members to complete our Basic Training Program, whether they are new cosmetology graduates or experienced in the industry. Requiring this intense education is necessary to maintain the level of quality that is Visible Changes’ standard which allows us to guarantee that our clients will receive the same high quality, Visible Changes experience at each salon location in Houston, Austin, San Antonio or Dallas.

Visible Changes salons are well-known nationally and internationally as a cutting edge salon business. We have received awards from magazines for our quality services and innovative business models, work closely with leading beauty manufacturers and have been pioneering the salon industry practices since we were founded in 1977.

We have always believed that the client comes first and strive to bring you the best hair salon experience in Texas.
