Annie is an extremely talented hair stylist/colorist with a great personality! On my first visit I immediately felt comfortable and I could tell she truly cares about making her clients happy. She patiently listened, answered all my questions, set my expectations, and also gave me some hair care advice I had never heard before. I left the salon happier and more confident than I can ever remember in my many years living in NoVa. Prior to Annie I had some good hair stylists but Annie is in her own category- she is GREAT! I HIGHLY recommend Annie and would give her 10 stars if that was an option.

Awesome. Annie makes you feel comfortable and beautiful! Sometimes I feel like chatting, other days I don't, either way Annie is so chill and just goes with the flow. What you really want hear about is my hair... It has never looked better! I have a lot of thin hair that falls flat and breaks easily. Since I have been going to Annie, she has given me a shape that gives me volume and is constantly giving me tips on how to prevent hair breakage... And they actually work! Never before have I been able to wash my hair and let it dry naturally, and now I can. Just go to Annie. It's an easy and safe choice that will yield you awesome and addictive results :)

I used to go to Salon Mint for Annie, and I was so excited to find out that she now has her own salon! Even at Salon Mint, she was sought after and known in the Fairfax area for her coloring skills. For anyone looking for a professionally done cut/color (especially color) at a reasonable price, go see Annie. Annie is very thorough. When I went to get my hair colored, she spent 30 minutes coloring my hair in great detail. She made sure that every strand was done right. While she was coloring, we talked and it was very easygoing. I'm an introvert and talking to strangers usually leaves me drained if I'm not comfortable with them but talking to Annie felt like talking to a friend. And if I didn't want to talk, she just let me be too. After the color was all set, she spent 45 minutes styling my hair. It's obvious that she has a lot of expertise, and she is incredibly diligent and patient. It is money well spent. She delivers above and beyond and provides excellent customer service. One of the best hair stylists in Northern Virginia!

Annie is a fantastic hair stylist! She listens to what you want, advises on what is best for your hair type (mine is thin,fine) and does great with colors and cuts! I have never received compliments like I have after a visit to Annie! I won't be going anywhere else!!

Annie is an exceptionally talented hair stylist. She does not "cut corners" (even with someone who has A LOT of hair, like me) but is thorough in achieving perfection. I was blown away by how amazing my hair looked and more importantly the careful efforts she took to make what could have been a very nice style, an out of the world extraordinary one. Her work ethic is strong--she will not just take any client at any time --but schedules appropriately, giving herself ample time to do what she needs to do, making you feel so special and not rushed. She is also extremely sweet and has a thankful attitude, making you want to come back. I just adore her and I will be coming back again and again---and intend to refer lots of clients to her!!!!

After an awful experience at another salon, I searched Yelp for someone with great reviews and found Hair by Annie. I'm so glad I went with her because my haircut looks great! I showed her a few pictures and the result was just what I wanted. She is so friendly and helpful, and seemed to know exactly what I was thinking throughout the process. My hair felt great leaving the salon and I will definitely go back whenever I need a trim or want to make a big style change again!

Her amazing reviews are no fluke! I've never gone to a stylist and felt an immediate desire to keep going back. (I usually get my hair cut once a year because I get stressed about finding someone I like, but Annie is someone I want to keep doing my hair again and again.) As many other reviews have commented on, Annie is personable, talented, and actually gives you what you want! I gave her a picture and for the first time ever I got what I asked for. I finally found someone who I trust my hair with! Just as an FYI to new customers, you can text her if you want to make an appointment- she'll get back to you asap and its easier than playing phone tag. Currently she rents a chair in the RANI salon on Waples Mill Rd, but she said she will be moving to her own studio by George Mason in September which is great! I highly recommend her!

I found Annie by luck. I needed a new stylist because my previous girl moved and I went to the same salon where they had someone ruin my hair. Annie took the time to explain the process, the colors, and why she was doing what she was doing. She cares for her customers and I LOVED my HAIR. She did such an amazing job on my color and my cut. I usually tell people I want to keep my length and they chop 2-3 inches off. Annie actually listened to me. I am definitely going back to her! She is friendly and easy to talk to as well. Thank you ANNIE!!!!

Annie is my favorite! It took me a few years to find an expert stylist but it was worth the wait. I first started seeing Annie when she worked at Salon Mint, and then followed her as she established her own business a few weeks ago. She's very friendly and listens carefully during consultations to ensure she understands what I want (especially when I can't exactly describe the look I want). She has consistently executed my desired look, even though it may be slightly complicated- for example, during my last visit, she colored my roots, cut my hair in a shaggy lob, and did lowlights and balayage highlights (with some magical combination of toners) within a few hours. The best part was that she uses the best products and techniques to ensure that my hair stayed shiny, soft, and damage free :). She is very cutting edge and stays on top of new techniques which is fantastic and very rare in NOVA! Definitely go see Annie- your hair will thank you.

I just moved to the area and was looking on Yelp for a new stylist. I finally settled on Annie and contacted her to make an appointment. She was quick to reply (via text) and I saw her the next weekend. She is a talented colorist and stylist and I look forward to seeing her again soon.
