President and Chief Instructor
In an era of progressive success and multidimensional leadership among women, Lazonnie Belton is an icon. She is the esteemed founder and president of Visions in Hair Design Institute of Cosmetology (VHD) located on Milwaukee’s northwest side. Some consider the school to be the culminating component to her career in the cosmetology industry. Others assume that VHD is her launching pad. Contrary to the notion of many, Lazonnie Belton’s path to entrepreneurship and education was paved in her childhood. She dreamed: her dreams have since become reality.
For over two decades Lazonnie has serviced the Greater Milwaukee area with excellence in cosmetology. In addition to leading VHD, she owns and continues to maintain two salons: Visions in Hair Design I and Visions II. Both salons reflect Belton’s sincerity and seriousness about her craft Visions II, in particular, is a breath of fresh air for patrons. They experience the modernity of a millennial salon and receive hospitable service as if being welcomed into Belton’s home.
Her reputation emits talent, inspiration and excellence, elements that have made Lazonnie Belton one of the most successful salon owners in the city. In three decades, Belton has created two full–service salons and a cosmetology school.
Lazonnie Belton mastered her cosmetology career in Milwaukee’s most distinguished salons. In 1971, Lazonnie ventured out on her own and opened the first modern–fashion beauty salon in the Northwest. Soon after, he opened a salon in the Milwaukee’s prestigious Prospect Avenue and relocated to the northwest side of Milwaukee, establishing locations on 55th & Center and 72nd & Burleigh.
Affectionately, referred to by her students as Ms. B, she continues to keep abreast of emerging styles and trends with her travels and participations in local and national shows.
