Message from the Owner

Gail Cohen, Owner/Manager

As owner/manager of Salon Central, I have dedicated over 2 decades of service to the Beauty Industry. My strong leadership, high expectations and hands on approach, with both guests and team, has enabled us to stay successful, even through difficult economic times.

Our team consists of established and professional hairstylists who take their art very seriously. Their work represents our salon, and is the reason behind our continued success. This is not something to be taken lightly, as our business relies mainly on "word of mouth" advertising. We are proud that our focus on excellence in service and guest loyalty has earned Salon Central the honor of Top Pick for 'Best Salon' eight consecutive years by readers of Bethesda Magazine.

Salon Today 200 Voted top 200 Salons nationwide for best business practices by Salon Today Magazine.
