define /dəˈfīn/ verb 

"To distinctly identify the clear meaning of a purpose or intention."


At Define, our purpose leads to our passion: a customized experience and product that works for each guest. Our highly skilled and creative team creates specialized, individual looks while providing the highest level of care.  We know life is busy and your time is valuable. Our goal is a seamless visit where your time & preferences are our top priority. Our full concierge approach offers all digital iPad driven technology, so you can easily check in, check out, shop, and pay in one click. Your color formulas, skincare regimens, appointment, and retail history are all conveniently saved for each visit. Whether reserving your next visit, pouring a bubbly Perrier, or simply saying hi, our guest services team is waiting for your next visit. 


Our location was carefully chosen to match our vibe. Nestled conveniently off of Rt. 40 in Ellicott City, our gorgeous, 4600 square ft. space and adjacent boutique, loft suite matches how on top of the world you will feel during and after your hair and skincare session. Enjoy comfortable styling stations, relaxing spa treatment rooms, and multiple processing areas that suit your comfort level. Choose from our quality salon and spa retail brands such as Kevin Murphy, Image Skincare, Pureology, Redken, Osmosis and Farmhouse Fresh Goods and shop our fun retail products like custom jewelry, handbags, candles, and hair accessories. So you can sip & shop while you process, telework, or text without a care in the world, except how fast you can snap your post service selfie.


 Education is the backbone of our brand, and all Define artists and skin care specialists engage in extensive on-going learning, both in and out of the salon and spa rooms.  You'll see team collaboration happening every day, and having your own entourage is a regular thing.
