Want to know what clients have to say? Take it straight from them! Here are just a few clients describing their hair experiences at Thirty Hair Salon in Columbia, MD. 

I came into this salon after hearing about it from a long time friend and was extremely happy with my hair when i left! I came in to get the keratin treatment and will most definitely be back for round two once this wears off. Love this salon!

I cannot say enough good things about Thirty Hair! Granted, I have only been once, but I am hooked. It feels great to finally find “my” hair place after living here for a year. Kara did an exceptional job with my hair color. I honestly do not know if I have ever been as satisfied as I am with the job she did-and we just met! She knew what I wanted better than I did. The staff that I encountered was friendly, funny, and accommodating and atmosphere was wonderful (not at all stuffy or hoity toity like I have encountered before).
— Kristin H
I’ve always had a positive experience at thirty hair! From the welcoming atmosphere at the door to the quality cut by Sarah, 5 stars all around!
— Donna T
I called as a new client for a color and cut and was paired with Sarah H. She is AMAZING. She listened to everything I had to say about my mop of hair, she gave me an exquisite all over color and made my pink splash the most gorgeous shade of fuschia. I can’t wait to go back.
— Sari B
Breann was awesome!! She came up with a great color combo, because I couldn’t decide what I wanted. She gave great ideas for cut too!! I love it!!!
— Kelly M
Always a great experience at Thirty Hair! Sarah has been my stylist for many years and she always makes my hair look gorgeous. The staff are talented and friendly and the atmosphere is great.
— Rachel B
I came here after a recommendation from a friend and I have found my new go-to salon! Everyone that works there is super friendly and I had a great experience. I got color and cut done by Kara and she was really helpful in my decision to get a balayage and cut my hair shorter. It was definitely money well spent!
— Katherine M
Lisa gave me a beautiful haircut yesterday. She is so talented and I truly enjoyed chatting with her. I highly recommend this salon. I was referred by a friend who received a gorgeous haircut along with fantastic color and highlights. Thank you Lisa!!

I have been getting my hair done by Sarah for years, she is the only hair dresser I have ever considered going to since she did my hair for the first time. I have had nothing but great experiences with Sarah, which is why I followed her from her former salon to Thirty Hair. I always leave exceptionally satisfied with her salon’s staff, service, and end results. The people who work there treat their clients with so much care - from front desk, to shampoo, to styling, each and every person you deal with makes you feel welcome and at home - not something you often hear about a salon. I have personally recommended this salon to at least 5 friends, who have all had just as good experiences and continue to book appointments there, as well. It’s nice to be able to give a recommendation that you feel 100% confident about and enjoy sending people to! The staff here is extremely professional and knowledgeable in all areas, so when I did finally take the plunge to chop off my long locks, I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. I would like to thank Sarah and her team for always doing a terrific job, and for allowing me to get out of my comfort zone when it comes to trying new things with my hair! I will continue to be a client for all my hair needs and continue to send people their way! If you are looking to try a new salon, Thirty Hair is the one!

I’m a new resident to Howard county and was on the search for a new hairstylist/salon...I sure am glad to have discovered thirty hair! Such a convenient location to my new home, which helps since I’m in the process of learning my way around haha! I haven’t stepped foot in a salon for over 2 years, so my hair was overdue! Kara was able to transform my hair into a new cut and color! Thank you! I’m looking forward to my next transformation with Kara! Btw, my rose gold balayage rocks! Highly recommend Kara for any color service!

This is possibly the best experience I’ve ever had at a salon! I was going in for the first visit, to get my color touch-up and a cut/refresh layers. I must have earning a blessing because my stylist turned out to be the owner, Sarah! She immediately made me feel welcome and safe to put my hair’s future in her hands X) before I even got to my seat I was offered various refreshments, and happily accepted a glass of white zinfandel. I told Sarah what I wanted and she gave me the realistic outcomes and different things we could do to get there. I believe Isabella did my wash, and her scalp massage couldn’t be beat! I really loved how Sarah was efficient but at the same time did things thoroughly and carefully - for example, massaging the color liquid into my hair, instead of just relying on the brush to get it soaked in. She explained every important detail about how cutting my bangs certain ways would look - again delighting me with expert knowledge and consideration. Both ladies, and really everyone in the establishment, were a pleasure to speak with. Thirty Hair earned an exclusive, long-term customer!
— Tabbie
I absolutely love Thirty Hair. Everyone is always so friendly when you walk in, they offer you some water or coffee! I love my haircut every time. Sarah and Kara know how to make my very thick hair feel wonderful and light! I wouldn’t trust anyone else to do my hair or want to go anywhere else to get my hair done.
— Amy S
The best hair colorist and stylers I know! There is nowhere else I would ever go to! To top it off they treat you like family there!

I have been going to Sarah for ten years. I followed her to Thirty Hair. She is knowledgeable and up to date on new products. I will go in with a hair cut or color idea and can not really describe the look. Sarah knows what I am looking for and I always leave with the perfect color and cut. I love Sarah so much and trust her that she was a huge part of my wedding day. She made me feel so pretty and important on my big day and I have pictures to prove it. Her staff is always friendly and make you feel comfortable. I will never go anywhere else.

I have been coming to Sarah’s place since I moved to Maryland three years ago. Following her to Thirty Hair in Columbia has been so much fun. I can’t say enough about the quality of their customer service and the care they give to their clients. They are also flexible and dedicated. Sarah helped me design my wedding hair style even though I got married in Texas. I couldn’t imagine trusting anyone else for such a big day and it turned out beautiful thanks to her detailed pictures and directions. I am happy to call Sarah not only my fabulous stylist but also a sweet friend
— Crystal D
Lisa does everything right. Girls at front desk are sweet.
— Joanne
I have been seeing Sarah for my hair for a while and I’ve been to this new salon several times and I will continue to travel from Baltimore City to go to Thirty Hair. As a woman who has had nightmare haircuts in the past I tend to be hesitant with a new stylist. But never once have I felt that way with anyone in this salon. I trust them completely with my hair which is the most important. But it is also so nice to actually enjoy being in a place while you get your hair done. It is beautifully decorated and you are always offered a beverage while you wait either for your stylist or for your hair to be done. And of course everyone on staff is so friendly. If you were going to go to a salon for the atmosphere this is the place to go - it just so happens that they are AMAZING at hair as well.

I can’t even begin to describe how great its been to be a client at Thirty Hair! I am going to try. My hair has transformed for the best since I’ve gotten my hair cut and colored there. Even with all the color treatments I’ve done my hair has grown longer, stronger and healthier. When I first came to Kara she thankfully rescued my hair from a funky yellow color! She has done many hair cuts for me from bangs to layers and they have all been great. In addition to all sorts of color requests. The shop is always great too. The customer service is priority and overall Thirty Hair always makes you feel valued and respected. I really appreciate how nice everyone is and how everyone listens. In all my time coming to the shop I’ve never had a bad experience. Also the waxing is great too.
— Melissa S
Every time I see Lisa to get my hair done I have something new for her to try. She is always up for the adventure whether it’s the cut or the color. She never disappoints! She’s kind, she listens, and she pays attention to details.
— Heather T


First time customer and I am totally sold! I loved the environment, people, products, but most of all... I look FABULOUS! Sarah listened to everything I asked for, and delivered nothing less than perfection! I really enjoyed myself while visiting this salon, and I will definitely be back! Thank you for caring about your customer’s experience!
