Our Mission & Vision
At Salon Central Bethesda our mission 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.
BLOWOUTS / FINISHING TOUCHES
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 Comp, Milbon’s Liscio Japanese smoothing service can be customized for all hair types. After the application, your hair will be smooth and frizz-free.
Our waxing technique is highly praised by our guests. We believe in a waxing experience that is 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.

The Science of Hair Damage
Causes of damage
High levels of heat from curling irons, blow dryers, flat irons, etc
Color treatments (coloring, bleaching), perms, relaxers, keratin treatments
Brushing, friction, tugging and pulling on wet hair
UV damage from the sun, humidity, extreme hot/cold weather conditions, etc
Pollutants generate free radicals that penetrate the hair cuticle and cause damage

What is Fusio Dose?
With up to 30 unique combinations, Fusio Dose treatments instantly transform your hair. Composed of two parts, a concentré and a booster, Fusio Dose treatments help you address a variety of concerns and are formulated based on your hair goals. It allows you to target two unique hair concerns at the same time.
What is the difference between the Booster vs. Concentré?
Concentrés are highly concentrated vials that address your main hair concern. The boosters are packed with powerful skincare active ingredients to help you reach your hair goals. A concentré is then mixed with a Booster to create your custom treatment.
How does it work & how long does the custom hair treatment take?
Before beginning your treatment, your stylist will diagnose your hair. Depending on your hair needs, they will select a Concentré and Booster to combine and spray onto the hair at the back bar. Within 5-minutes, your tailor-made treatment will be complete and you’ll be flaunting lush, re-energized hair all day!
