I went here for the first time last night for a promotional/social event they were having! I had my hair and nails done and a massage! All 3 were excellent. In fact, I received great tips on what products to use on my hair to fix my greasy hair problem I was having. I immediately went out and bought the shampoo and conditioner they suggested and I can already see a difference in my hair today!! Thanks so much! — Alissa B.
Treat yourself...you will love it!
I am a regular customer at Fringe and Foundation. I have a short style and go every 3 weeks to get a cut and color. While the color is on my hair I get my toe nails painted and trimmed. The prices are very reasonable for services of such a nice salon. I enjoy a number of the products they sell including the Mantra hair product line and the Sugar Scrub ( in Mocha latte!) for the skin. It is a very clean salon with comforting colors inside. The parking is fabulous and it is in a great location that is easy to get to from anywhere. I never have to wait, they manage to keep things running very smoothly. I highly recommend this salon for all the services they provide! Try a pedicure or massage as a treat for yourself...you will love it! —Tina D.
A beautiful and relaxing place
Just had my hair colored and highlighted at Fringe and Foundation by Allison. Five people complimented me on the great highlights. This was especially gratifying as my previous salon experience (a different salon) was less than satisfactory. I can really see the difference in stylists. Allison is an artist; her artwork can be seen on the walls of the salon; she brings her great eye for color and cut to the realm of hair styling. In addition, the salon itself is a beautiful and relaxing place. Go there; you'll be happy you did. PS: I keep looking at my highlights in my rear view mirror. Be careful driving when you get yours. — Andrea G.
Friendly, honest and professional
I've had my hair done by Kim here for the last 2 years and she always does a fantastic job. She's friendly, honest and professional. I like that she will tell me if she thinks there is a better alternative than what I'm suggesting instead of just going with what I say and she doesn't try to upsell me. There is no excessive chit-chat among the stylists like you'll find at other salons and the prices are right on point. — Becca B.
West Side's Best Kept Secret
This salon may be the west side's best kept secret. Holy moly. First, the speed is amazing. Because my hair gets base color and highlighted at the same time, so much time is saved. As a brunette, both of these things can be tricky. I've lived with flat, dull color for so many years. Now, I have that wonderful multidimensional look I've admired on others. I had credits elsewhere and had my hair cut there and it was very disappointing. Allison at F&F made some adjustments at my color appointment and I've gone from Mom Bob to edgy in no time flat. I can't recommend them enough. I call my stylist an evil genius goddess. Yes, she's that good. Great salon. Great prices. You won't regret going there and I will never, ever cheat on them ever again! — Kathy C.
I went to Fringe & Foundation after reading their great reviews on WeddingWire. I went first for a haircut and met with Allison and her team. She did an awesome job (and created a new regular customer who's willing to drive up from Columbus for a haircut!). The team came to our hotel before the wedding to do my and my bridesmaids' hair and makeup. They did an outstanding job! I received so many compliments on my hair and my makeup looked fabulous all night! Also, my Mom and I had mani-pedis a few days beforehand with them and they did amazing! Thank you so much! — Samantha
The entire staff was such a pleasure to work with!
Fringe and Foundation Studio truly helped make our wedding a memorable event. The entire staff was such a pleasure to work with and the entire bridal party truly enjoyed working with them. My hair and makeup turned out better than I could have ever imagined. I initially choose Fringe and Foundation Studio because of their extremely reasonable pricing and willingness to travel to the bridal party's location. I can't thank Fringe and Foundation Studio enough for providing such an amazing experience! —Dawn
Above and beyond
Amazing experience at Fringe & Foundation. From someone who loves doing their hair and makeup themselves and is good at it, this is the place to go. It was above and beyond what I expected--these people know their stuff. First of all the salon was clean, bright, relaxing and welcoming. Everyone there is super friendly. Kim did hair and makeup for me, my maid of honor, my mom, and also my flower girl. She did a fantastic job and it was exactly what I wanted. Everyone left looking perfect. We were able to bring in food and drink and just have a relaxing morning before the big day. My makeup looked absolutely perfect. The prices are extremely reasonable. Especially because you get such good service and results. There was no other place that offered such good pricing with such great services. Everyone there said they would be back for their next special event. —Allison
Every singe person in my wedding party loved their hair and makeup.
I just recently had three wonderful ladies from Fringe and Foundation do the hair and makeup for my wedding. I absolutely loved them and would recommend them to everyone. Every singe person in my wedding party loved their hair and makeup. They came to my house(which was so convenient) and were very professional and efficient. My hair stayed the whole night and I kept commenting on how good my makeup still looked after some hot outdoor pictures and cake getting shoved in my face( haha). So glad I went with them for my wedding. —Amber

Kim and her team did a wonderful job!
Kim and her team did a wonderful job with our wedding hair and makeup! It was so nice that they were able to come to our condo and we were able to get ready at home. They were willing to work with us and made everyone look amazing and everyone's hair and makeup lasted through the whole evening!
Excellent experience. I love how comfortable I felt interacting with Kim. She was great, plus she did a great job on my hair! — Mark
