The Fusion Hair Studio Story

Fusion was born in the early 2000’s as a dream, a possibility, then ultimately a reality. As circumstance would have it, Guelph was experiencing a population boom, with South Guelph leading the way. As the residential building exploded, it was clear this corner of the city needed a commercial and retail infusion to service this rapidly increasing customer base.

It was the perfect time for Fusion and South Guelph to come together in business. 

At the time, Jim McBean was a successful salon owner and manager with a vibrant business in Guelph’s downtown core, and Paul Wilke was working in Jim’s salon, as well as travelling globally as an educator, show and platform artist for a major beauty company.

The potential of South Guelph was calling, and Jim and Paul decided to make the move, and 2 years later, in 2004, Fusion Hair Studio opened its doors for the first time. 

As new business partners, the concept was to combine Jim’s management expertise with Paul’s technical and creative gifts to create a new and exciting environment for guests to enjoy beauty Services.

The original focus of Fusion is still our code: Great hair, Uncompromising service, modern, unpretentious.

We pride ourselves on our authentic relationships with our guests, our highly trained staff, our friendly attitude, and our boutique retail brands.

This is who we are, and we look forward to welcoming you into our environment.
