Testimonials

  • Dimitriy did my hair for my wedding, and it looked amazing.  I have stick straight hair, and even though it was a humid, 95 degree day the curls he gave me lasted all day long.  Everyone raved about it so much that I may just go back to have him do it again for fun.  Thanks for getting my wedding day off to a great start, Dimitriy!

  • I had been on the search for a new stylist after my last one remained a bit too behind the trend for me. When I asked for a subtle blonde ombre of my brown hair, I walked out with chunky orange highlights and it was then that I "knew." Search was on... ...Enter: Chantal. I appreciate her professionalism, the fact that she engages you as much or as little as you want, and her technique. The salon is clean, well appointed, and very inviting. I highly recommend visitng the salon and Chantal especially. You will be happy you did!

  • This place has captured my heart (hair) forever! Have been a loyal client since their doors opened, which was many many years ago. The place just keeps getting better! Recently opened up a magnificent location including state of the art spa which I finally got to personally experience yesterday. If you are looking to be treated like a queen or king that's the spot for you!
    Kate Y., Yelp
  • ...The atmosphere of Salon Fusion is upscale but the prices are affordable. I can not speak for for quality of the other technicians as I have only used Randall, but if he is there its a good chance everyone there rocks.
