Cosmopolitan Hair Salon, founded on April 8, 2006, strives to be a leader in the hair fashion industry. "We are a dynamic company known for its casual, yet professional environment. We provide a host of hair fashion and design services for any occasion," said Serena McNemar, hairstylist/salon owner. The Salon is also a great place to pick up your hair care products such as Paul Mitchell, Aquage, and Matrix at competitive prices.
McNemar "wanted to offer customers a comfortable atmosphere where they can relax". She grew up in the south end of Hagerstown, is a graduate from Award Beauty School, and a single mother of a teenager. "I know what it's like to struggle," she said, "and the way the economy is right now, I try to keep my prices as low as possible so everyone can afford to look and feel great! It's what we do best!"
Well, it seems to be working - the lowering of the economy and Cosmopolitan's lower prices has actually brought more clients into the salon. "Some people have stretched out their color and cuts, but it really has not affected me at all," she added.
Cosmopolitan Hair Salon is the salon that gives you competitive prices, fashionable haircuts, and coloring from friendly and professional stylists trained in the latest fashions for men and women. "We also offer lots of other great services from manicures and pedicures, to bridal styling, and party styles," said McNemar.

"I LOVE to see people feel good about themselves - it makes me feel good!"
