Our Mission & Vision

Our mission at Salon Central in Bethesda is to creatively incorporate current hair styling and hair coloring techniques with advanced education to exceed our clients' expectations. Our objective is to assist you in achieving your desired image in a friendly, relaxed and fun atmosphere.

​The best hair styles and designs are reflections of our client’s individual features, lifestyle and personality, which Salon Central takes into consideration before each hair cut or hair color service. With attentiveness and precision application, we create the ultimate customized look that is effortlessly stylish.

As owner/manager of Salon Central in Bethesda, I have dedicated over 2 decades of service to the Beauty Industry. My strong leadership, high expectations and hands on approach, with both clients and team, has enabled us to stay successful and grow into a leader in hair styling and hair color.

Our team consists of established and professional hairstylists and hair colorists who take their art very seriously. Their work represents Salon Central and is the reason for our impeccable reputation. 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 client loyalty has earned Salon Central the honor of Top Pick for 'Best Salon' eight consecutive years by readers of Bethesda Magazine.

A good haircut should make you feel great. It is an accessory you wear every day, all day. Your haircut should be easy to care for and contemporary in style. At Salon Central we strive to give you the look you desire. Our stylists listen, ask questions and provide recommendations based on your hair type.



Emphasize the detail of your haircut with a color service. Whether you choose balayage, highlights or an all over color, coloring your hair adds the finishing touch. Salon Central stylists are trained on the latest techniques.



Blow out services and finishing touches bring out your authentic beauty. Blowouts are perfect for so many occasions and can give you that extra polished look for a special event or holiday celebration. Blowouts can also provide you with the extra confidence you need for a job interview or for your professional head shot. While finishing touches make your new bangs pop with an amazing eyebrow shape. In any of these scenarios, a blowout or finishing touch at Salon Central is just what you need!



Are you considering a straightening treatment to tame frizz, but unsure about being exposed to the dangers of formaldehyde found in keratin treatments? We offer the solution. Keratin CompMilbon’s Liscio Japanese smoothing service can be customized for all hair types. After the application, your hair will be smooth and frizz-free.


Eyelash extensions are a series of carefully selected lashes attached individually to your natural eyelashes. We only use high quality lashes that lengthen and add volume, curl, and dimension to each individual lash. Eyelash extensions can be glamorous, they can be intense, they can be fun – it all depends on the style you select!

Olaplex is a simple three-step in salon process that includes a patented active ingredient that works on a molecular level to seek out broken bonds in the hair that are caused by chemical, thermal, and mechanical damage. You can use Olaplex to restore compromised hair, or add it to another service to provide the ultimate breakage insurance.

Bond Multiplier®


This concentrated first salon step rebuilds broken disulfide bonds and begins the process of preventing damage and repairing hair.

Bond Perfector®


Our second salon step continues to rebuild and restore any remaining broken bonds ensuring the strongest, shiniest, and healthiest hair possible.

Hair Perfector


This final retail step provides our client's continuous protection from ongoing damage at home.

Waxing Services 

Our waxing technique is highly praised by our guests.  We believe in a quick, painless as possible waxing experience.  In order to achieve the best waxing results, your hair should have at least 1/4 of an inch in growth.  Be sure to avoid sun exposure and any heat treatments for at least two hours before waxing and twelve hours after waxing. We regret that we cannot wax if you use Retin-a or Accutane.
