We opened in 2009 when we noticed a need for a team-oriented salon in Baltimore which would allow for exceptional style and customer service in a friendly environment.

By collaborating with each other, we are able to offer you the best style experience imaginable. By offering hair, waxing and natural nail services in one location, we hope to make your visit relaxing as well as efficient. For almost 10 years we have been striving to help you be your best self.
