Janelle’s approach to her craft is embodied in her credo “Life can be difficult, your hair shouldn’t be.” She delivers on that guiding principle thanks to her mentor – Kathy Simon. Janelle embraces Simon’s “Foundational Approach,” which emphasizes basic shape for easy, lower-maintenance hair. Goldwell Master Colorist and a certified Curly Hair Expert are among Janelle’s impressive credentials that help her provide a rich repertoire of cut and color expertise.

Janelle’s other credo is “When life gets difficult, head to the beach!” Sun, sand and rolling waves offer the perfect respite for this busy professional and mother of two, who’s all about the reward system.

I've been going to Janelle since the salon opened and could

not be happier!

The salon has products specifically for curly hair, which I think have helped my hair over the years.

Treat yourself to a facial upstairs and you will not be sorry!

It's always such a pleasure to spend time pampering myself. 

Very good products and a wonderful place to go to in

downtown Lombard.  

Follow this salon on social media to keep updated on specials, etc.

Everyone I send is always so happy!

A certified Master Colorist with the prestigious Goldwell Academy, Felicia is Fringe’s in-house color specialist and educator. Felicia is just as adept at cut as she is at color and generously shares her knowledge of on-trend hair design with Fringe’s newer talent. Felicia’s growing list of credentials includes being a Curly Hair Expert and certified Safe in my Chair Specialist.

Away from the salon, Felicia and her husband like to feed their appetite for travel and adventure. When she’s not off hiking in a National Park, Felicia is often planning their next getaway, elbow-deep in their latest home improvement project, or outdoors nurturing flowers and vegetables in her garden.

I absolutely love fringe! I have been going to Felicia for years and there is no one else I would trust with my hair!


She always takes time to look through photos of inspiration and make sure I absolutely love my cut and color!


She truly never disappoints and always knows what will work best for my hair!


I come in with a general idea and she takes it and customizes it to me and my hair!


Love Felicia and everyone at Fringe!


Absolutely worth it!

Kelsie comes to Fringe by way of Minnesota, where she graduated from the PCI Academy. While her look is soft and pretty and her disposition “Minnesota Kind,” Kelsie has an artsy side that she loves to explore through cuts, colors and styles that are unique and trending. She’s also experienced in special occasion styling and trained in multiple hair extension techniques.

Kelsie’s childhood fulfilled every little girl’s fantasy – she owned a horse, a quarter horse named Molly. These days she’s living the dream with her firefighter husband and a lower-maintenance pet – their rescue dog Hali.

So, I kinda cheat on my regular hairstylist (who happens to be my friend)

with Kelsie.  


I was referred to Fringe (by Robin) and I'm so glad I found this little gem!  Kelsie takes the time to listen to what I'd like, offer suggestions and seems methodical about her craft.  I always leave happy because she gets it right every time.

 The only downside is that I have to come up with excuses when I actually

do see my friend! 

The salon itself is very warm and welcoming and the staff is super friendly!  The prices are competitive.  

Highly recommend!

Jen is a graduate of Tricoci University of Beauty Culture whose passion for hair was born of struggles with her own sassy curls.


A consummate student, she’s a full-service beauty pro, with advanced training in bridal hair and makeup, as well as barberry (men’s cuts). Most recently, she added Advanced Curly Hair Specialist to her growing list of credentials.

Downtime gives Jen the chance to indulge her other passion – movies. She has a particular affinity for action flicks but enjoys all genres, especially when watching includes eating something yummy.

Chocolate qualifies as yummy, so does a margarita, though she’d prefer to drink that somewhere on a hot, sandy beach

I just want to thank Jen for making me fall in love with my curls again!

I struggled to find a stylist who knew what they were doing with my curls.  Doing some research and booking an appointment with Jen felt like my last resort.  She made me feel welcome and took her time with my curls.  She gave me some great hair tips and made me feel good walking out of the salon. 

My hair has never looked better!

Thanks, Jen!!

Nicolette comes to Fringe from the Paul Mitchell School, where her skill and commitment earned her a three-day work intensive at Caper 2017 in Orlando; there she learned from top industry experts about on-trend cut and color. Nicolette is a natural student who's constantly expanding her skillset. She's become one of Fringe's go-to makeup artists and is a certified Curly Hair Expert


Before Paul Mitchell, this Chicago sports fan helped create magic moments for many as a graduate of the Disney College Program. These days, Nicolette makes magic behind the chair and, whenever she has a little free time, in the kitchen.


Living by her favorite quote, "The best is yet to come," Nicolette is able to seize each day with the support of her fiance, loved ones and her incredible clients.

I made an appointment at Fringe in December on a whim....I loved Fringe the moment I walked in the door.


Nicolette is everything I could want i a hair stylist - kind, accommodating and knowledgeable about products.  She answered all my questions and I walked out with my hair looking better than ever.


Without hesitation I scheduled a follow up appointment...!

A high achiever at the Paul Mitchell School, McKenzie earned top honors in cut, color and texture. Her post-graduate credentials include being a certified Curly Hair Expert.


McKenzie's a morning person who loves going to the movies and cuddling with Zeus, her hairless cat (not her doing, he was bred that way).

While McKenzie might leave the night-time prowling to Zeus, she takes a few feline cues when she visits her favorite destination -- L.A. There she hunts for celebrities and cat-naps by the sea. But McKenzie won’t ever spot her favorite movie heroine noshing at the Chateau Marmont or catching rays on Malibu beach. She'll just have to be satisfied with seeing Ariel on screen.

Shout out to McKenzie 


who fixed my hair!

U are the best and

I owe you my life!

Amanda is a veteran stylist and certified Curly Hair Expert whose specialties include updos, balayage and trendy cuts for men, like fades.

Her passion for hair is no surprise since Amanda grew up surrounded by beauty professionals. She was so certain of her career path that she graduated high school as a certified stylist.

Amanda’s happy place is Monterey, California. In between trips to the West Coast she indulges herself by shopping, because she loves trying new products and sporting fresh styles.


But Amanda’s more practical than extravagant. If given a $5,000 shopping spree, she’d head straight for Sam’s Club. Well, maybe she'd save some of that windfall for her next excursion to Monterey.

Go to Fringe and ask for Amanda!  You will NOT be disappointed trust me!!

She gave me just a little trim to add some texture to my already short hair, and it changed my haircut more than I thought it could in such a nice way!

Everybody was so friendly and welcoming, the entire ambiance was so relaxing and soothing as well!

Looking for an engaging guest experience with a talented stylist? Then we’d like you to meet Sophie. A graduate of Pivot Point Academy, Sophie offers you a full cut and color repertoire, plus something special -- her superpower is braiding. We’re talking hair sculpture, updos extraordinaire, amazing twists and intricate weaves.

Check it out on Instagram @styles.bysoph.
In her downtime, Sophie uses her nimble fingers and creative talent as a guitar player. Often, it’s as part of a sister act strumming classic rock tunes with her twin. Curling up with a good book and enjoying time
with family also add beautiful harmony to Sophie’s life.

I had the BEST experience at Fringe yesterday!

Sophie gave my virgin dirty blonde hair a cool-toned blonde balayage and it turned out AMAZING!

Everyone there was super patient and friendly and they also checked everyone's temperature before their appointment.


Highly recommend!

Zee is a rising talent at Fringe, who’s soaking up tricks of the trade under the expert tutelage of Felicia. A graduate of Pivot Point Academy, Zee has known her calling since high school, when she jump-started her hair and makeup career through vocational training.

Downtime often finds Zee cuddling with Winston, her rescue cat, while binge watching her favorite shows. Or, she might indulge her creative genius by drawing or doing makeup. Nature also holds allure for Zee, who enjoys reconnecting with her wild side by taking a strenuous hike or just a nice long walk.


Zee at Fringe is the absolute best!!


Every time she does my hair I leave feeling absolutely fabulous and in love with my hair!!






Say hi to Alina, our newest talent!
