Irma Wheeler opened her first salon, Illusions of Shirlington, in 1993. For over 20 years, Illusions has thrived at their Campbell Avenue location.  Her son, Justin Wheeler, has grown up in the beauty industry under his mother’s exceptional guidance.  Now this dynamic duo is taking on a new adventure and sharing their talents across the bridge at their newest location, Illusions of Georgetown.

“We strive to pamper our guests, and we bring our community the latest trends in the beauty industry,” Irma says. “We are constantly bringing in educational classes on color, cuts, and styles for our stylists. Beauty trends are always changing and we want to be on top of our game. From, balayage and ombre’, to razored bobs and men’s cuts, you name it and we are on it! I’ve been doing this for a long time, but I am always learning and so is my team,” says Irma
