Special Effects takes great pride in the longevity of our stylists. Not only are they extremely talented, they have the unique bond of being together for many, many years!



Raised in the greater Annapolis area, Debbie is our early bird! If you need a hair cut, color or perm before work, she is your stylist. Her 31 years of experience and her vision with hair are outstanding.



Sam will make you feel like you’ve known her for years the minute you walk in the door. She has been in the industry for over 6 years and specializes in color - specifically foiling, balayage, and dimensional color. She can cater to any of your hair needs including cutting, coloring, styling, and will make you feel comfortable every step of the way. She is also a District Manager with Arbonne international and can help you discover all of the amazing nutrition, hair care, skin care, and body care products that Arbonne has that we offer right inside of our salon!

Our energizer! Tracy's enthusiasm in life transfers directly to her ability behind the chair. Her complete knowledge of coloring, perming and cutting are hard to match. From the wonderful greeting and consultation to the final snip of her scissors, you will be pampered and emerge looking fabulous. Tracy has 30 years of experience -- 27 years with us.



From the moment you sit in her chair, you feel special. Kathy will cater your hair to your lifestyle to make you look incredible.
