I had a great haircut and balayage appointment with Gorkem. I appreciated that he offered his advice and opinion on the best cut/color for me in a friendly and helpful way. The salon itself was nice inside and seemed well maintained. Would definitely return!

I came here for a haircut after reading the nice reviews online. I had a great experience with Josh - he had some great styling tips for my hair type and patiently cut and styled my hair. Everyone at the salon is welcoming and there is parking too.

One of the best salon experiences I've had. Very kind staff, great location, and free parking. Gorkem took the time to listen to my vision and offer his advice on the direction I should take my hair. The cut and color turned out amazing! I look forward to coming back.

I went to Illusions for a men's haircut and William did a great job. I am very happy with the results. As a bonus, it has parking - rare for the middle of Georgetown.

My very first time here! I am very impressed with the friendliness of the front desk staff to the amazing cut and style I received from Gorkem. I called as a random person desperately needing a cut and style and I was offered a same day appointment. When I arrived, I noticed the small sign for off-street parking in the rear. This was a plus as parking is a premium in this narrow section of Wisconsin Avenue.After being devoted to my former stylist for more that 20 years before she retired and relocated out of state, I have been wandering aimlessly for a new stylist who “gets me.”When I arrived for my appointment, I was checked in and offered a drink of water. I didn’t realize I had forgotten my drink so this was a much needed refreshment.From the moment I sat in Gorkem’s chair, I knew we had something. I showed him pictures from Pinterest and he was very enthusiastic about the product he could give me which matched my vision. We discussed product usage and hair care during our time together but it didn’t feel like he was being judgy, he genuinely cares about the quality and health of hair! Yay!My finished product was amazing! I left the salon feeling like a brand new woman! I told Gorkem that I will be back for my next trim! I’m so happy he’s younger than me … it means I should retire and move away before he does!!! Thank you Illusions of Georgetown and Gorkem - I’ve finally found a new salon home! 💇‍♀️

Justin performs hair magic every time. I've been coming to illusions since I was 15 (20 yrs) and I've never been disappointed. No matter what you need done, they can do it and they do it at a reasonable price, and with style!!

Illusions is fantastic! I wouldn't trust anywhere else to color my hair. Kayla especially is incredible. She's so attentive, great at figuring out exactly what I want and is so knowledgeable and committed to her work. I can't say enough great things-- if you're getting your hair colored, especially a dramatic change, definitely come here.
