Ted Porter

I've been going there 10yrs and they are the best in my experience, and I'm a guy!

Been going to Katie Dice for over 4 years now. I have lots of baby fine hair and she is really skilled at maximizing volume. I don't always love how she styles it at the salon (I'm not big on product), but I always love it immediately after I put my own spin on it. She is also the sweetest. Highly recommend her!!


Janette and the front desk staff was very helpful. I just did a regular wash hair and blow dry.

Tsaiko Chan

Pricey but worth it. They will actually follow instructions (like no products in my hair) and still make it look awesome.

Rebecca Elizabeth Zaloudek

I love my hair after katie got to it!!

John Shoemaker

Katheen gave me an awesome haircut, highly recommended.

Cameron Conte

Caprice (spelling?) is amazing & has done an incredible job on my partner's hair as well as mine! She got very dark hair dyed into a gorgeous silver with a fancy curl. The cuts were perfect, she listens & is very helpful and kind. Additionally, as a transgender person, the staff there did an excellent job respecting our pronouns.

I've been going to Kay for about 8 years. At first it was because I worked at UMD and could go for a quick cut during my lunch break. It wasn't long before Kay convinced me to try blonde highlights and I was hooked! It takes too long for a lunch break (more like 90 minutes), and costs a bit more than just a haircut, but she's so great at making them look natural and stylish. She's also easy to talk to. I never had a relationship with a stylist before, and I feel more like she's a member of my extended family now. Sometimes I really need to cut costs and I skip a few months, or switch to box dye and cuts at the haircuttery, but eventually I return and when I do I look in the mirror and just say, "Ahhh!!!" because once she's done, I finally look like myself again.

Friendly staff, welcoming atmosphere, high quality. I’ve gotten my hair cut by Kathleen for years and I’m never disappointed. Prices are superb for the quality of the stylists.

They advertise that wash and blow dry for kids is $18-25, but after my daughter's hair was done the owner quoted $40 because it took longer than 30 minutes. I have no problem with paying for a service but you should state $18-40. I called before hand and specified my daughter's hair type. Not once was I told it was considered 'extra'. This to me is a very poor business practice and false advertising. Basically if you have ethnic hair, you pay double. Not the best option for kids either.

Katie Kincaid

This is going to be a long review, but the short of it is that I came in for a natural blonde balayage and I got a poor dye job from a rude stylist with seemingly little knowledge on how to do the job. They were unwilling and/or unable to fix their mistakes, and told me there was nothing they could do for me after messing up my hair because they were "no longer comfortable working on it." Do not book Caprice for a dye job. Attached are pictures from the night I got the hair done and the day after. Notice the extremely bright colors and the choppy dye job. I came in on Friday for a natural blonde balayage. I consulted with the stylist before and showed her a reference picture, and came in later for the appointment. During the dying, my hair started to turn orange from a previous semi-permanent pink dye from over a year ago. To clarify, my problem is NOT that my hair turned orange. I understand that hair can be unpredictable, and sometimes these things happen. My problem was with what came next. She bleached my hair for twice as long as she originally planned, turning my hair bleach blonde. Instead of a neutralizing blue-violet based toner, my stylist opted for a rose gold toner. Being my first time bleaching my hair, I didn't know better. The toner she chose only amplified the orange and added pink. This left my hair extremely over-bleached, with a streaky yellow/orange/pink mix. The top section was brown and then the bottom turned very bright. The job took longer than expected and towards the end she was rushing me out of the salon. She didn't even bother to blow dry my hair, and I didn't even see the full damage until I got home. The stylist told me if I didn't like what was done, I could come back and have it fixed for free. So on Monday, I called and made an appointment, and called out of work for the appointment. Later I received a phone call from the stylist herself. She was extremely rude and when I said I didn't like the bright, streaky dye job, she told me that if I wanted my hair a more natural color, I would be charged for it because it was another "process." At this point I had requested a blue based neutralizing toner, which she told me I couldn't do because it would dye my hair blue (this is wrong, and any hair stylist should know how to use a neutralizing toner!) The stylist wanted to charge me MORE after messing up my hair. I eventually with the very nice assistant manager who told me they would fix my hair free of charge. An hour later, I receive another call from the stylist. She told me she was "no longer comfortable" working on my hair - the hair SHE messed up on. She refused to do my hair, cancelling the appointment I called out of work for, and told me to come in for a refund. I came in for my refund and the stylist saw me but immediately walked away. Another lady at the salon processed my refund, and told me that if I wanted my hair a more natural color, I would need to bleach it again or it wouldn't be fixed. I did get my money back, but I was left with awful hair and according to them, no easy way to fix it. But the kicker is that after a lot of research and contacting other hair stylists, I was able to tone out the orange myself with $8 worth of product and an hour of my time. My hair isn't what I wanted, but no thanks to my stylist, it is at least manageable. Apparently my stylist didn't know how to use a neutralizing toner (which, btw, did NOT turn my hair blue), or if she did, she flat out refused to even attempt to fix her mistakes. Overall, I'm VERY disappointed with the level of incompetence and rudeness I experienced from my stylist. I'm really disappointed because at first she seemed really nice and I was excited to have a new stylist close to school. Unfortunately, after my poor dye job, incorrect color correction, rudeness and a cancelled appointment, I have to give Bananas 1/5. To be fair, the other stylists seemed very nice. Everyone else I interacted with was kind, and would probably do a good job. My experience however, was awful.

HORRIBLE. Maybe if you don't have kinky or natural hair, then you're fine. First off - awkward setting to walk into if you're a colored person. They look at you and treat you differently. Secondly - I was rushed off the chair for the next customer even when I told her ahead of time how I wanted my hair. I went in for a simple deep condition wash, trim, and style. I received a wash, blow dry, and trim. I left with my hair flat and boring and still paid full price for lame service. I didn't even get a "goodbye". She just walked off and told me to pay up front. On top of that - she opened her drawer and alcohol bottles fell out. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE!

Patricia Cepeda

Poor reception... poor customer service... unclean areas... couldnt do difficult hair... if you have easy hair and just need a quick wash and dry then go for it otherwise not worth it... you will just need to redo your hair at home

Jie Li

Wonderful place for hair color or cut.

Debbie Davey

Great people. Have been a client there for many years. They offer a complete array of hair care and always with a smile.

I got the worst haircut of my entire life. I asked for shoulder length with layers and received a blunt cut that varies up to an inch in length very abruptly. I am disappointed in myself that I even paid for the service and now (as a college student with no job) need to go to another salon, spend money I don’t have, and have my hair 4-5 inches shorter than I originally wanted to fix this cut. The stylist asked what side I parted my hair on and I said left then proceeded to cut it with a middle part (unevenly) and when I asked she stated that she does not know her right from her left (I am not joking she actually did not know). I also was given a different stylist than I booked with.

Jason Cook

Great place

Shannon Perticone

I scheduled an appointment for myself and my daughter, they only scheduled one appointment. Next time I scheduled again for us both and even though we both checked in they no showed me for my appointment WHILE I WAS SITTING IN THE SALON! I'm done! Their customer service sucks and for what I pay for a haircut the least they can do is actually cut it. I will never go back!
