Getting your hair cut and colored at Color Bar is a treat. It's sleek and modern and stylish, which makes you feel that way too! The shampooers do all the right things, like make sure water doesn't drip in your ears (hate that!), massage your head and neck, it's great. (although I wish they had the barcalounger feature on the shampoo chairs)
Beverages, snacks, great magazines? check, check, check.
Ask for Lizzie, she knows exactly what she is doing, and is super nice, but not overly chatty.
Just off the beltway, lots of parking, all great.
It's a bit pricey, so you have to think of it as a luxury in addition to a haircut. But with all the multi tasking, traffic, and basically holding down two full time jobs we working moms do, I think it's well worth it.
