A visit to Salon Central, conveniently located near Montgomery Mall, provides our “guests” with
a break from the hectic, fast pace of daily life, says owner Gail Cohen. In the salon’s “relaxed
and welcoming” atmosphere, guests will feel comfortable and stress free while the versatile,
experienced and knowledgeable Salon Central team of stylists works its magic.
“I like to think of my salon company as a sanctuary, a place where guests can come to
feel pampered and taken care of for the hour or two they’re with us,” says Cohen. “We want
to create an experience. It begins when they walk in, with a friendly greeting—we offer them
a beverage—a tour of the salon, an in-depth consultation and relaxing shampoo and scalp
Creating each guest’s ultimate customized look and desired image is a collaborative effort.
Salon Central’s perceptive and detail-oriented stylists, who keep current with the industry’s
evolving techniques and trends, spend time familiarizing themselves with their clients’ wants
and needs, taking into consideration individual features, personalities and lifestyles.
From haircuts to blow drys with beachy waves, foil highlights or hand painted balayage, there
is nothing the Salon Central team can’t do, says Cohen. In 2018, the salon was voted “A Top
Vote Getter” for “Best Salon” by Bethesda Magazine readers for the eighth consecutive year.
All new guests receive $30 off a color service and a gift bag with product samples, as well as
a personal thank you note from Cohen and vouchers, including complimentary treatments, retail
discounts and other services, to use on future visits.
“Our goal is to have our guests leave with a huge smile,” says Cohen.
