About Tanya Ko

Private hair studio offering Cuts & Style, Tape-In Extensions, Smoothing & Straightening Treatments, Balayage/Ombre Colors and Unicorn/Mermaid Rainbow colors.


Tanya is hands down the best when it comes to really giving you the cut and color that best suits your own personal style and skin complexion. I’ve been a prisoner to box dye for years and she was amazing at fixing my uneven hair bands and just giving me the best color for my skin tone! She’s unique and knowledgeable with her techniques and really listens to what you want in your hairstyle. If you want to dip your toe in the colored hair pool she’s the one you should go to!!!

I’ve been going to Tanya religiously for 10+ years so I am so happy to learn that she now has her own studio! I’m that friend who gets impulsive and will dye her hair using a box color and then will head promptly to Tanya for a fix. And every time, I am living my best hair life. Tanya has taken me from blonde, brunette, purple, fuschia, to a lovely neutral brown. I’ve managed to live out all my hair dreams thanks to Tanya. She is patient and will work with you to understand your specific taste, color tones and your hair history. I’ve spent 6-8 hours in Tanya’s chair for each coloring and trust me, she’s worth every hour, every dollar.

Tanya is amazing and knows what she’s doing! Her attention to detail is great and she communicates well with you so there are no surprises. She keeps it simple and easy and a breeze to go to a salon and she is her own boss so nothing coming down from higher ups, and she’s never in a hurry with you. She has Nespresso in the salon which is a plus for me lol. I went in with yellowed out “platinum” blonde and came out looking like unicorn sprinkled dust on my head but it was all of Tanya’s amazing work!

Before I came to Tanya - I was going to my previous stylist for 10 years and I decided to try someone new. I booked with several other stylists at other places but ended up cancelling as I observed their work more. I’m all about hair and don’t ever want to damage mine so I wanted to find someone who was passionate about what they do instead of just mainly caring about $$$. I decided to book here and was nervous at first. It’s located right across George Mason University inside a pretty cool concept called Sola Studios and she’s the first suite right when you walk in! Tanya was very knowledgeable and explained everything to me while she was doing it. She was someone to easy hold a conversation with and I’ll definitely be back! Please see my before and after pictures and I am so happy with my results!

I can not recommend Tanya enough. She’s incredibly knowledgeable, talented and always has me leaving very happy. I’ve had endless compliments on my hair color, I absolutely love it. There’s no one else I’ll trust. If you’re looking for the perfect stylist, look no further!

I’ve gone to Tanya for all my hair needs since 2014 and have never been disappointed! She helped fix my box colored hair and educated me on how to keep my hair healthy. I’ve never gone back to box colored since! She’s attentive to detail, patient, and takes her time to make sure it’s exactly what you want. I can always count on Tanya to understand what I am trying to achieve. I’m a loyal customer for life ;). I highly recommend Tanya - my hair is healthy, beautiful and the color lasts. Totally worth every penny!

“Goodness! I cannot express how great this salon is. Tanya did a wonderful job taking me from a dark brown/red/faded purple to a platinum blonde. If you like a salon with a stylist who isn’t afraid to have a little artistic freedom – this is definitely it! You won’t be disappointed.”

“I went and saw Tanya today and I am so glad I finally did. I have been searching for a good hair stylist for three years now in this area and I finally found the one! She went far beyond my expectations! She gave me a great consultation and she did an amazing job on my color. Tanya was very friendly and very inviting. I would recommend her to anyone!!”

“I went in for a consultation appointment and booked my balayage for the following week. Tanya worked on my hair and she did a great job. I also enjoyed getting to talk to her as well! Overall, I was satisfied with the experience and the price.”

“This was my second experience at the salon, and it was fantastic. Tanya takes her time to give me advice about my hair color choices and go over options in the color book instead of 1) taking everything into her own hands, or 2) just agreeing with anything I say without providing helpful input. I drive an hour to come to this salon, and it’s worth it every time”
