Aimee has been cutting and coloring my hair since I moved back to Chicago six years ago. I will not allow anyone else to touch my hair, the one time I did was a HUGE mistake. Despite recently moving out of town again, I schedule trips back to Chi just to see Aimee. I am loyal and devoted and will never let anyone else touch my hair. I started asking about the Brazilian Blowout last year, Aimee was sure I would love it given my major hair complaints and how well she knows my hair type and, as ALWAYS, she was right. It was seriously life changing. My hair is finally wash and go and it looks amazing! The time it takes to blow-dry my hair, it is still too cold to go out with wet hair, was more than cut in half which leaves so much more time in the morning for important things like walking my dog an extra few blocks or getting to work on time. THANK YOU, Aimee!
Please note: As much as Aimee was convinced I would love the Brazilian Blowout, I never once felt pressured to get it done, that just is not how Fusion operates. Aimee answered all my questions but never pushed it on me like some salons do.

I am a 36 year old professional male that went to Melissa at Fusion based on the reviews here and at Yelp. I am extraordinarily particular about my hair and who cuts it. I can verify that the reviews are accurate.

I would give both Melissa and Fusion my highest recommendation. She gave me one of, if not the, best haircuts I've ever had. And I've been to many highly rated places in the city as well as Dallas and Austin.

It's a cliche, but the people there are truly down to earth, which I believe is very hard to find with this level of talent. Melissa gives a sh@t about you, your lifestyle, and how your hair style fits into who you are and what you do.

I went to Fusion for the first time last month. All I have to say is WOW. I had Sahara who is fabulous. She gave me great high & lowlights and a cut that still looks great 5 weeks later.

Everyone there is so welcoming and genuine. They actually called me a couple of days later to make sure I was still happy with my cut/color. Talk about customer service.

I moved to Chicago almost 2 years ago and I hadn't found a good hairstylist that could get my color and cut perfect. My search is over!

I moved to Chicago three years ago and found Fusion through City Search. Melissa Rapey had great reviews so I went to her. She is talented all around, but her haircuts and highlighting are the best I've ever had. And now she's added Brazilian Blowouts to her menu - fabulous! Aimee has put together a great team, nice environment, and everyone loves Dale - a real pro at making the whole place click. Don't hesitate to go to Fusion!

I never thought I would celebrate a 10 year anniversary with anyone--let alone my salon/stylist, whatever a guy calls the girl who cuts his hair, I am doing just that. No, not a wedding anniversary, a haircut relationship anniversary. Aimee's the best I've ever had at fixing what goes wrong on my head. And, I've never had such a welcoming experience. So, indeed--run, don't walk. That's a good description!

All my friends had raved about Fusion and their stylist, Sahara. But, I must admit, it took me a while to even consider a different stylist. But OMG, I'm so upset at myself for not trying Sahara sooner!! Everyone at Fusion has a friendly vibe. Walking in, I was immediately greeted by the front desk manager, Dale. He is SO friendly, cute and funny and makes you feel right at home. The owner, Amy, always remembers everyone's name; don't know how she does it! Then, when I began talking to Sahara about my hair, I felt like she took the time to completely understand and I was completely happy! She's the best at Brazilian Blowouts, oh AND she wax's my brows every 2 weeks... Sahara is great at what she does and she has an awesome personality! Let's face it, I wouldn't have writen this review if I really didn't feel this way :-)

When I moved to Chicago, I needed to find a new hair studio. I finally found Fusion, and Sahara has been highlighting and cutting my hair ever since! I feel like she's the first artist to actually color and style my hair right. I swear my this salon and Sahara. So many of my friends have started going here for their services and love it! I would recommend it to anyone, including men!!

I've been going here for years! Even if you don't know what you want, they will help you find the right cut for you. I especially like that Dale is so friendly when you first walk in, and Aimee remembers how you like your style. The attention paid to their clientele is unmatched by any stylist i have ever been to. As a guy, I know how hard it is to find a place that is as comfortable as a barber shop, yet has the know-how of a salon. Fusion brings these elements together seamlessly. After one visit, you won't want to go anywhere else.

Melissa Rapey is amazing! I have very long hair and have tested out many stylists throughout the city. I wanted to keep the length but have volume and shape (Victoria Secret Style). Everytime I would leave the salon, my hair just looked the same but now it was more choppy, still flat on the crown and with a few more whisps around my face..boring. Then I was referred to MELISSA and after she cut my hair, I fell in love! I don't know what she does but she gave me the most amazing seamless cut where it is still long, full of body yet very simple to maintain and remains sexy as it grows out. I get asked all the time where I get my hair cut and I am excited to tell them Fusion Salon. Ask for Melissa.. hands down the best stylist ever!

I was in need of a haircut and I had just came back from town! I had seen the Fusion hair salon walking along Clark so convenient being next to the CTA stop . As I walked in I was confronted by a young man who was behind a desk and asked if I had a hair apt, I didn't he looked over his schedule book and replied we can fit u in and that the owner Aimee was gonna cut my hair. I was happy they were able to take me in let alone with great hospitality asking if I needed water or any other beverage! I only waited 10 minutes for Aimee. Aimee was great with her hospitality and was very specific with my needs in a haircut even with the fact I am very picky when it comes to my hair! So she washed and dried my hair and I was done with my haircut in less than 15min! I was very impressed with my new look for Aimee is a professional stylist and I will suggest all my friends to go to Fusion it is a wonderful place! Thanks Aimee!

I just moved to the city a little over a month ago and was hesitant to look for a hairstylist, knowing there'd be so many options. Based on these reviews, I took a leap of faith and made an appointment with Aimee for a cut and color--BEST decision ever! I had been highlighted blonde a while ago, and it was time to try something new. Aimee had noted that my blonde was uneven all over the place, and assured me that she would fix it. She did just that ...and more! She was so attentive to what I wanted, and it's almost as if she knew exactly what I was picturing in my head. My hair looks better than it ever has in terms of color. She also gave me a wonderful cut. I really couldn't have asked for anything more! Not only were the services excellent, the experience in general was great; everyone was very friendly, and the atmosphere within the studio is fun yet calm. I recommend this place to anyone and everyone. I'm definitely going back!!!

After moving to Chicago more than 4 years ago, I was on the hunt for the perfect salon and stylist. I got a recommendation from a local girl in the neighborhood to go see Melissa and Fusion Hair Studio. And, boy, am I ever glad I did!!!

I wanted a fun and funky hair color and style. Melissa pretty much read my mind and did exactly what I was looking for! She is a perfectionist and it really showed in my hair. I've never gotten more compliments than when she did my hair. She always takes the time to ask how I've been and catch up on life. She is really attentive and really pleasant to be around. I recommend her to people every chance I get!

Now that I've moved to LA and am on the hunt for the perfect stylist here...I still want to go back every couple of months to have Melissa do my hair!

The best stylist i've found in this city. Been going to her for 6 years now and she always finds a way to keep things new for me, which is not easy to do with short hair on a guy.

She isn't one of those people that wants to get you in and out as fast as possible, she listens and has ideas. And she is super fun.

I have been bouncing from salon to salon--some of the most highly rated in the north shore suburbs to the gold coast. And each and every time I get blonder...and blonder...and blonder. About once a year I fly back to St. Louis to my trusted colorist who laughs out loud when he sees my face. Well. No more. What can I say. Right off the bat Aimee said that I was way too blonde. Agreed. I trusted her to do her thing. As I was processing I showed her a picture of my "fixed" color. She smiled and said that was where we were going. Not only was the color perfect--but she gave me an AMAZING cut. Despite the fact that I need to get creative with parking--I will brave the treck from the Northshore. I highly recommend!!

I went in to Fusion and got a blowout from Aimee. My hair has never looked better. I was traveling through town and decided that I wanted a blowout and I came upon Aimee. MY blowout lasted for days, it really even looked good 3 days later. So now whenever I come into Chicago I make conscious effort to go and see Aimee. You should too, you won't be disappointed!

I don't mind the drive at all to have my hair cut and styled by Melissa Rapey, who is without a doubt the most talented stylist in Chicago. She listens to you, hears what you'd like to do with your hair and then makes it turn out even better than you had imagined (Richard Gere, move over, buddy). If you're looking to make a move or new in town looking for a studio, head to Fusion and ask for Melissa (I'm sure the other stylists are good, too).

My hair is curly and I had this terrible old lady hair style.
Melissa not only gave me the best hair cut I have ever had but gave me styling tips and tricks to get that professional look myself ! Not only do I look younger but I can walk out of Fusion knowing that I have a great style--something I haven't had with other stylists. Fusion is comfortable, everyone there is friendly, it's just a great salon. If you have curly hair, Melissa is the one! I have never had so many compliments on my hair. She really rocks!

Also she suggested I get layers and they look TERRIFFIC! I absolutely love my hair and have recieved many compliments from my friends, especially on the cut! Thanks Ellen!

I went in last month to get haircut. Vanessa was available and took right then. I never know what I should do and have gone to many salons where it seemed the stylist didn't care and hated being asked for suggestions. Vanessa took the time to go over a couple different looks that would gowith my face. She did a great job. Its been a while since I walked out of the salon this happy with my hair. She also told me diffrent ways I could style it at home. All the girl at the salon are so welcoming and make the experence fun. I don't think Ill be going anywhere else.

My best friend has been going to Fusion for a few years and is always raving about it. The other day she dragged me in there with her to keep her company while she got her highlights done. Melissa happened to be available and gave me the best haircut I have ever had! The salon is super cute and lively, without being too trendy or too stuffy. Melissa gave me some great tips on styling my hair at home, both curly and straight. We started talking about dry shampoo and she recommended a product that they don't actually carry. This tells me she was really listening and answering my needs, not necessarily pushing their products on me. I will never go anywhere else again!

Had a first-time haircut by Aimee, the owner, and was very pleased with the end result. She is very confident in her expertise/opinion of the cut that would be beneficial, which I found very re-assuring -- and has the skill to back-up what is discussed. I also really appreciate the unpretentious, mellow vibe in the salon. No attitude or stress. I will definitely return to Fusion...

Fusion offers a wide variety of services, including hair extensions. I have been a loyal customer for over 2 years and I wouldn't get my hair done anywhere else. They use the best products and the atmosphere is very chic and relaxing. I've had extensions for a year and half and can't live without them now. I highly recommend this salon.

Fusion offers a wide variety of services, including hair extensions. I have been a loyal customer for over 2 years and I wouldn't get my hair done anywhere else. They use the best products and the atmosphere is very chic and relaxing. I've had extensions for a year and half and can't live without them now. I highly recommend this salon.

Pros: Great service, walk ins welcome, variety of products, convenient location, friendly staff

I walked in to Fusion on a whim, and Vanessa was able to take me right away. I was kind of nervous because I dont get my hair cut that often, but she gave me a real extensive consolation and went over everything we discussed before starting my to cut my hair. When she was done i was thrilled it was like she read my mind and really understood my needs. Its been a couple of weeks and my hair looks fantastic and she showed me a couple of tricks that I can use at home to style my hair. I really recommend this girl

I am the type of person that doesn't do well with making appointments, and never had one stylist I saw regularly. I would bounce around from salon to salon finding someone with an open appointment. After moving to the city I tried two other salons before Fusion. After one appointment, I was hooked! I see Aimee, the owner, and love my appointments. She's upbeat and energetic and listens to what I want to do. I get more compliments on my hair cut and color than I ever have before, and I always tell everyone where to go to get it done. I change my hair color every few months and it always looks amazing and the transition is never harsh. I always walk out knowing that I can conquer the world with my new look! I'll never change salons.

I have to update my review! My friend and I decided to have a "spa day" for Valentine's day... well, I got a moisturizing treatment done at the spa I went to followed with a style and dry (which I think was supposed to be only a dry and $25 cheaper!) Well, I walked out of that spa and my hair looked a MESS! My hair wasn't even dry. I was walking home, trying not to be super angry, and popped in to Fusion. Aimee sat me down, finished the job the other person didn't and sent me on my way! My hair looked beautiful even after only 5 minutes with Aimee. She is truly awesome! I recommend this salon to anyone.

Cons: I can't go every day to have them make my hair look perfect!

Fusion rocks!!! After moving to Chicago earlier this year and attempting to transition from a stylist I had seen for seven years who knew my hair inside and out to a new salon here in Chicago, I was completely dissatisfied with the results I experienced from THREE different salons, all pricey and considered higher end. I decided to try Fusion after reading quite a few top notch reviews and I will be forever grateful! I was booked with Amy the owner, and not only did she give completely honest and accurate advice on my desire to color my hair a certain way, she then called to check on the results a few days later. I would say the best customer service I have seen from a salon, especially when all my prior stylists had been so arrogant about their work, even though they all massacred my hair! Amy fixed my haircut that a previous stylist had completely butchered ( I have very thick hair) and my color looks beautiful. I highly recommend this salon if you are tired of messing around with pretentious overpriced snobs that pretend to know what they are doing. Here you can be sure you will be respectfully listened to by a very professional and friendly staff in an upbeat atmosphere!

My husband and I have been getting our hair cut with Aimee since she opened and are always happy and relaxed when we leave. She is very talented and such a great person by listening to our wants while offering her professional opinion. Great location-parking never a problem. I love the fresh flowers and the photography around the hair studio along with the great music. So if you need a new and improved look call them up.

After having many issues with finding the right color for my hair, I decided to go to Fusion. Amiee did such a great job. She took the time to fix the color problems I had, and left my hair feeling much healthier and stronger. She also did a fabulous job on the cut as well. Fusion staff is extremely friendly and helpful making this a great place to go!!

Being a Chicago native I am very hesitant to just try an internet user review, yet after having the worst color experience from a "Referred Top Colorist" , my hands were waving in the air. I was absolutely thrilled after I received an extensive consult from Anna at Fushion. All of the staff was so lovely, understanding how sensitive I was to such horrible prior service which left my hair orange. From the minute I called to inquire the receptionist was so understanding as to my urgency to get this fixed to the minute I walked in and was offered a beverage and a warm smile. It's so hard to look for a great stylist due to the unique attributes we all posess, yet Fushion Salon on Clark in Lakeview is by far my new and only salon. The owner is extremely approachable and caring as to why clients have come to her salon. Not to mention the sinks have a reclining ottoman to put your feet up when washing your hair. I actually almost took a quick nap while I was waiting for color. This salon is extremely clean and the atmosphere is just right. Her choice of color and interior style is hip and welcoming. Anna is eager to ensure her "New Clients feel safe" I have my next appointment in 4 weeks and I can't wait to see what is next. TRY THIS PLACE!!!

Pros: Exceptional corrective color! Thumbs up, amazing product knowledge

After years of bouncing around trying to find that right cut, I found Melissa and won?t go back! I followed her from her former salon, to Fusion, and have been going to Melissa for 3 years now. If I could fly her out to my wedding for the up-do I would! I won't go to anyone else. Fusion could not be a better place to go for a relaxing, friendly, and inviting experience. All the girls are fantastic. Melissa is fabulous at both cut and color and I refuse to go to anyone else!

I had my first experience at Fusion Hair Salon last weekend. I made an appointment with Anna to touch up my highlights. The inside of the salon was really cute and trendy, and the girl behind the desk was really friendly. Anna consulted with me before doing anything, and really made sure of what I wanted. I told her what I wanted to do, and then told her to use her own judgement to do the rest. The color came out beautiful! I was very impressed. Anna used her own creative skills to determine what would look best on me and it is probably one of the best coloring jobs I've had done in years. I will definately be back to see Anna soon!

Fusion Hair Studio is a great place to get your hair cut. Aimee has been cutting my hair since 2004 and always get a great haircut from her. I am really bad about making appointments and wait until my hair is totally unmanagable before calling to get my hair cut. If I cant get into see Aimee, I have gone to other stylists in the salon, and have had a great hair cut, no worries. The staff did my hair, my mom's hair and my bridesmaid's hair for my wedding. They came in early to accomodate me and I even got a bottle of champagne from Aimee. Thanks everyone for such great service, you are highly recommended in my book!

Frances is my stylist at Fusion, and she is awesome. Her talent really shows when it comes to color. She can do whatever you ask, and make it last and look healthy. And, not only will she give you the cut you want, but gives you tips on styling so you can get that same look at home (well, almost. I'm still not as talented as she is!!). Overall, Frances is there for you. If you want to chat, she chats; if you want to chill, she chills. It's a treat going to see her, and she makes me look fabulas!!

I've been going to Aimee for over a year now and she knows me & my hair so well!! Even though I sometimes slack off and go more than two months between visits she always remembers what we talked about the last time & is always checking up on me. She knows what products I like & does her best to make sure they are in stock when I come in! You think it's hard breaking up with a significant other? I think it would be 5x harder to break up with my stylist!! Even the rest of the staff here recognizes me and remembers important happenings in my life. I would definitely recommend Aimee to anyone and everyone who was looking for a great stylist!! You guys are awesome!

I've found Melissa a couple years ago and she changed my life!!! I walked in to the salon with dead lifeless hair and a horrible cut. (I wasn't feeling very pretty at the time.) She took one look and me and knew exactly what to do to turn my self esteem around. I have very curly gray hair that isn't easy to work with, but every time I leave the salon my color and cut are amazing! She colors my hair to look so natural even when it starts growing out. I never get the "skunk" strip! And my cut always grows out so well. I recommend her to anyone who needs a good pick me up. If you're new to the area or you're a native give Melissa a call. You'll feel like a million bucks when you're done!

I have been going to Melissa at Fusion for about 4 years now for both haircuts and color. She does an amazing job every visit and my most recent experience with ombre highlights is a testament to her talent. I am always looking for ways to make my red hair color funky, yet professional enough for work. As always, Melissa knows the latest trends and when I told her I wanted something different, she told me about ombre. She showed me pictures and made suggestions on what she thought would work best for my hair color, texture, etc. It turned out amazing! These are my favorite things about ombre highlights:

1)Low/no maintenance- My natural hair color is dark blonde and I color my hair red. All I have to do is touch up my own roots every 3-4 weeks and it doesn??t disrupt the highlights. If you use your natural color for the base, you don??t have to do any maintenance.
2)Variety- Ombre highlights can be customized to anybody??s style so they look different on every single person. It??s definitely not a boring, cookie cutter highlighting technique.
3)Great for long hair- I have hair that goes an inch or so beyond my bra strap and is layered perfectly (thanks to Melissa!), which makes the different colors really pop out.

Best of all, I get tons of compliments on my hair?.even from complete strangers. People will notice your hair so if you get ombre highlights go to a salon that has a reputation for doing them well. I highly recommended Fusion Hair Studio.

I just started working in the city after working in the burbs for a while, and I just kept going back to my stylist in MI. I knew I had to finally make the cut, and I was so lucky to find Nikki! I think this is a better coloring that I got from my last colorist (and I loved her)! She was really sweet, figured out exactly what I wanted to have done to my hair - and I've already gotten a lot of compliments. I'll definitely be back!

I've been going to Niki at Fusion for a few months now and I'll never go to anyone else. From cut to color she knows my hair better than anyone I've been to in the past. The atmosphere at Fusion is fantastic and they make you feel like family the minute you walk in the door. Go to Fusion, ask for Niki!

This place is such a find! I moved here from NYC several months ago and was worried about finding a stylist as good (and as reasonably priced) as the one I left behind in New York. After reading all the great reviews here on Citysearch I called to make an appointment and was able to get in the next day. Let me tell you what a wonderful experience it was! MELISSA was perfect, and even blew my old NYC stylist out of the water. She was able to give my fine hair some body, and I left the salon feeling fabulous (usually I have to do my hair myself for it to look good--no one seems to realize that straight, fine hair hangs limp if not styled properly!). Melissa really knew what she was doing, kept up a very pleasant and engaging conversation, and cut my hair both wet and dry. With her, I would feel comfortable saying "cut it however you want," and I know it would look wonderful!
