Admiring Fusion Salon owner Chris Grimley

Eyes to the north, please! Proving you don’t have to be based in the big cities to make some noise, we’re admiring of Fusion Salon owner Chris Grimley. She’s clocked up some miles in honour of the industry this year! Recently, Chris and her team took home five awards for Best Colour Salon; Best Texture Salon; Best Salon; Future Talent Awards and Texture Stylist of the Year. What a result!

Dive in to hear more about Chris and her salon…  

Fusion Salon, based in Lincolnshire, stands out for its commitment to inclusivity. Salon owner, Chris Grimley is all for embracing all hair types, with a specialization in colour, curls, and textures, catering to everyone from straight to type 4x (the salon uses O&M products). She’s been part of the Fellowship for British Hairdressing’s Project Afro this year – working with Avlon European education director Jacqui McIntosh.  

We met up with Chris and her team at Colour World this Summer – May in Hoxton London – and she’s clearly a charismatic team leader.

And it’s great to see their work has been recognised at the Salon Awards… Fusion Salon’s mission is to eliminate the need to turn away any client, ensuring a high standard of service for all. Awesome to see a colour salon in Laceby levelling up. Across two nights in Manchester and London, the 2023 winners of the Salon Awards were announced – sponsored by Revlon Professional. The Salon Awards attracts thousands of entries from individuals and salons turning the spotlight onto their business, technical, and creative talents.

Not only this, but Chris has appeared this month on TV’s Steph’s Packed Lunch Channel 4 to talk about the Not Home Alone charity. On behalf of the charity, Chris collects shoebox donations, gives lifts to senior citizens, and serves a 4-course Christmas lunch to those who would otherwise be alone for Christmas. It’s lovely to see a salon being so community-minded, keep up the excellent work Chris!  

We look forward to seeing what 2024 holds for Chris, the team and the salon, and we hope to see an entry in the Colour World Genius Awards…
