For more than 30 years, Patrick’s Hair Design has been one the top salons in the region, winning multiple awards and honors, including “Best of Howard County” and the “Masters of the Craft” award. The salon is owned and operated by Jodie Gil, Graduate of “Colours of the World” and “Wella Global Color Specialist” who purchased it in 2007 after working at Patrick’s for 20 years. Along with her husband, Rudy, she undertook a complete renovation of the salon to make it beautiful and comfortable for her clients following their appointments. The beautiful new space has every service under one roof – hair, nails, skin, makeup, body treatments, etc. – all in segregated nooks for maximum privacy and comfort.
Patrick’s staff is a diverse group of 25 professionals who have experience with a wide variety of cultures, hair/skin types, and styles. Some bring the experience of one or two decades in the business, while others bring the cutting-edge flair and edge of the newest generation. Still others bring both. One trait underlies each person at Patrick’s; a passion to make each customer to look and feel their best.
