I recently relocated to Maryland from a very big city filled with many great hair salons and stylists. I was concerned about my hair and who I could trust to not only style it, but also maintenance it in the manner which I have become accustomed to prior to moving here. I tried a few other salons, but wasn't very happy with the results. I searched the internet and came across the website for The Hair Connoisseur's. I thoroughly reviewed the site and the owner's (Tamara Taylor) credentials. I decided to give her salon a try. On my 1st visit to the salon, I was immediately greeted and made to feel very welcome. Tamara approached me less than 5-mins later, at which time she examined my hair, discussed what I wanted for my hair, gave me a detailed explanation of the condition of my hair and recommended treatment; she then took me to her work station to begin my hair experience. Needless to say, I was EXTREMELY HAPPY by the time I left. Not only is Tamara a true professional, she is gracious, sincere and very appreciative of her clients. I thought this was too good to be true, so I returned just to satisfy my curiosity. I received the same treatment on every visit. Tamara is everything her bio states and more! She genuinely cares about hair care and her clients. I am made to feel like I am her only priority when I walk through the door. Until I met Tamara, I felt this was rare in the hair care industry. I'm so glad I'm now a client at The Hair Connoisseur's Salon! Tamara proved to me (and I am very hard to convince when it comes to my hair), that excellence in hair care is not exclusive to the big city, but can be found in her salon. If you are seeking a true &amp;amp;quot;hair care experience&amp;amp;quot; with a &amp;amp;quot;hair care professional&amp;amp;quot;, who ALWAYS keeps you first, call Tamara Taylor; she delivers all of the above and more!

Tamara Taylor owner and stylist of The Hair Connoisseur Salon in Columbia has been my hair care specialist for over 5 years. Tamara is a professional stylist who loves her work and takes pride in every aspect of hair care. I experimented with many stylist before finding Tamara and there is no comparison to her knowledge and talent. Tamara is truly a connoisseur of hair care. My experience at The Hair Connoisseur is the basis of which I refer many friends and family to Tamara. My referrals have thanked me for connecting them with the hair artist and specialist Tamara Taylor. Tamara takes time to explain her hair care recommendations in regard to my personal hair texture and lifestyle. Not only does Tamara provide recommendations but she also listens to and responds to my personal needs and wants for my hair. Her knowledge and experience of hair types and textures are amazing; I have witnessed many of her old and new clients excitement of true joy and complete satisfaction after their service. When I decided to color treat my hair, Tamara took the time to carefully help me choose a color complimentary of my professional role, and lifestyle. My five year old daughter was recently treated to the most wonderful experience as Tamara and her staff catered to her first time experience at The Hair Connoisseur Salon. My daughter’s hair was beautiful as she started Kindergarten and she is looking forward to her next visit to The Hair Connoisseur, Tamara Taylor.
I just came from elegant twist hair salon in columbia MD, and let me tell you, the people are so friendly!! and my hair is BEAUTIFUL honey, the man who did my hair is FABULOUS!!!!! his name is steve, he has his awn shop in baltimore MD, he was filling in for someone in columbia, i am so glad i went in there. I had braids in my hair for about 4 months and i need something done to it bad, i was up all night trying to find hair salons in my area, i'm familiar with owen brown village center so i picked that salon and to my surprise there was a gentleman sitting in the chair, i thought he was busy so i didn't ask him if he was available, but someone called him over to me and the rest is history. He has been doing hair for 25 years, he's done celebrities hair, and his specialty is every thing, you dont hear that often, i've never had someone do exactly what i wanted, i picked a hair style in hair magazine and he did it better than the picture, now you cant find that anywhere, so if your picky like me, and you want your hair full of body, shine, and want to look fierce, go to Mr. Steve. The only down fall is the shop is VERY expensive, but it was worth it, so catch him at his salon and it will be much cheaper than columbia. LOVE YOU Steve!!!! I will be BACK......& i never say that, so trust he is the best!!!! god bless!!
I went to this salon seeking a wash for my extensions. Instead of getting a wash she tried to sell me everything under the sun even trying to convince me I needed a $350 new do. Basically she told me that she didn't want to wash my hair because she didn't put in the extensions herself which is fine, but I wish someone would have said that over the phone. Instead she said she would give me a dry wash which consisted of her spraying something on my hair and brushing it. So after not washing my hair, trying to convince me to get additional services, and talking to me for 30 minutes, she told me that my fee for the day was $35 for a consultation?? WTF?! I asked to see a portfolio of her services and she told me she didn't have one, and her bio speaks for itself. I might have wanted to actually get the services done if I didn't feel as if she only wanted to get money out of me. It's so hard to find a hair stylist who actually cares about the health of your hair and values honesty. So my search for a good hair stylist continues.
I went to Facelogic's Grand Opening and received a gift card for a free Elite Facial. Everyone there is super friendly from the girl at the front desk to all of the estheticians and the owner. The facial lasted at least an hour and included a wonderful massage. I got an MD Skincare alpha beta peel and mask and my skin was glowing when I left. They touch up your makeup after your facial too!! My esthetician, Carlee, was very knowledgeable and explained everything to me and recommended products just for my skin type. I bought the MD Skincare Peel Pads and boy are they working. My skin was showing a definite improvement in a little over a week. Carlee was really sweet and she gave me a "prescription" to take home. It listed what I had done and had recommendations for my at home skincare regimen. They have a monthly program that is only $49 a month for what they call their signature facial. I plan to sign up after the holidays. I can't wait to go back for my next facial in January.
My girlfriend and I received their Seven Chakras package. We were extremely disappointed in the pedicure. The seat is uncomfortable, they don't soak your feet first and they only have a stainless sink to rinse them in. The facial was nice, the mud bath was more a mud wash, the shower head would pop off, the message was nice. You got to eat your light lunch in a robe in the main corridor instead of in private. It seems that they are trying to fit a lot of services in a small building which doesn't help one relax. If I went back it would only be for a facial and only if the person I had was still there.
I called thia shop at 4:00am just to check the hours and if they took walk-ins...to my pleasant surprise, Tamara called back!!! She told me she was booked, then asked why I was calling at this time...I explained my hair emergency + birthday celebration...she instantly squeezed me in. With my fingers crossed I showed up. I was impressed by the service I received from the moment I walked in the door! I left 1hr and 15 min (unheard of for me) truly pleased!!!! Before I left, I was sure to make my next appointment....Tamara and her staff are professional and they operate in excellence!
Other than Tamara's impeccable bio and not to mention, her outstanding work, what impressed me most was her willingness to respond/address the negative reviews posted to this website. This alone caused me to become a first time customer and boy, I’m glad I did!!! She's terrific and so too is her staff!!! So, if you're looking for an outstanding hairstylist who’s also courteous and provides the utmost professional service all in a relaxing, sophisticated, and friendly environment, look no further than The Hair Connoisseur Salon!!! TRUST ME, YOU"LL BE GLAD YOU DID!!!!
I recently had a facial, waxing and eyelash tinting at Facelogic in Columbia. I received a gift certificate and after reading their reviews on SpaFinder chose to use my gift card there. The staff are very attentive with superb customer service. My esthetician gave me a great facial (the massage was to die for) and my brows and lashes look wonderful. Their pricing was unbelievable and I was able to get all 3 services for less than $100 with money left over for products. Try Facelogic and the MD Skincare peel pads - they both are amazing!
Courtney is the best, she is very detailed and she made sure that I was happy with my color and style. I am a woman that loves to talk to my stylist and her conversation was great and it didn't hinder her ability to create a beautiful look for me. I have sent coworkers to her as well and they all love her. The owner of the salon seems a bit pushy and that part I didn't like but other than that my experience was great. If you have a chance to stop into this salon ask for Courtney and you will not be dissapointed.
