Located in Old Town Alexandria, Rami is a welcoming full-service hair and beauty spot dedicated to making sure clients leave feeling beautiful inside and out. Here, salon goers sip cups of coffee before having their hair snipped and colored, nails and skin attended to, or unwanted hair gently removed. This upscale salon and spa, decorated in minimal white and wood tones, puts an emphasis on making clients feel quietly pampered.
At Glynn Jones Salon, experienced aestheticians and stylists bolster an array of salon, spa, and tanning services with high-quality products from brands such as Joico, Bumble and bumble, and OPI. Junior, senior, and master stylists crop coiffures and smooth tresses with the sleekening ministrations of GKhair treatments, and nail technicians treat hands and feet to mani-pedis.
To create the ideal environment for each service, Glynn Jones Salon holds a variety of different spaces. A series of private treatment rooms branch off from the salon, letting clients relax as they enjoy organic, green facials or waxing services, which enlist the powers of paraffin wax to remove extraneous hair and firmly lodged bellybutton lint. The newest addition makes smoothing keratin treatments safer and more comfortable: a custom ventilation system immediately whisks fumes out of specially designed treatment rooms to make for an odorless experience.
Led by board-certified cosmetic specialist and physician Dr. Pickens, About Face Aesthetic Centers' team of licensed master aestheticians helps clients to achieve and maintain healthy-looking skin with both injectable and noninvasive treatments. Microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and IPL photofacial treatments work to noninvasively resurface skin to address issues including acne, fine lines, and sun spots. The center's staff can also use injectable serums such as Botox or dermal fillers to smooth fine lines and add volume to the face for a more youthful look. Clients looking to improve their bodies below the neck can opt for contouring VelaShape treatments, which work to slim the silhouette without invasive liposuction. The seasoned team members' versatile skill sets has earned them positions as beauty consultants for top cosmetic brands such as Aveda, Clinique, and Estée Lauder.
As guests approach the check-in counter at Top Coat Nails & Beauty Lounge, they’re greeted by a receptionist standing beneath two beaded chandeliers. Then it’s on to selecting 1 of more than 300 available shades of nail polish. During application, clients snuggle into two-toned massage chairs as a technician pampers and paints their nails. In addition to mani-pedis, the intimate spot offers spa services such as permanent-makeup application, eyelash extensions, and massages.
The licensed master aestheticians at Mylandre Spa & Salon refresh and beautify bodies from head to toe with body wraps, facials, and massage. Their services also extend to revitalizing locks with stylish cuts, colors, and perms. To complete a full-body makeover, they can contour cheekbones and highlight eyes with makeup services and de-fuzz body parts with Gigewax, specifically designed for sensitive skin.
