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.
Bazzak Hair Salon's new location?a 120-plus-year-old brownstone townhouse in the heart of historic Old Town Alexandria?not only oozes charm and character but has also allowed the staff to expand its service menu. The team of American- and European-trained designers and master colorists has been caring for hair for more than 30 years, and also now can soften hands with soothing paraffin mani-pedis or calm the skin with an organic white-tea facial.
For their hair services, staffers still nourish locks with the natural and eco-friendly ingredients in Ren? Furterer and Priv? products, and specialize in adding face-framing accents or ombre highlights that, like a firefly falling asleep, slowly transition from light to dark.
The stylists at Salon DNA know how important looking your best is for your confidence, but they also know the negative impact the hairstyling process and chemicals can have on the environment. That’s why they’ve carefully combed through their service menu, finding ways to incorporate organic and eco-friendly products and methods while cutting, coloring, and texturizing their clients’ hair. The salon’s commitment to eco-friendly practices extends to recycling hair-clippings, using tools power generated by the wind, and refilling bottled products at 10% below the retail package price, all of which preserve the earth without vacuum-sealing all the nearby trees.
The salon features three tiers of stylists, with each tier wielding a higher level of expertise in such specialties as highlights or Brazilian blowouts. Each stylist takes pride in customizing every service to meet the unique needs and naptime schedules of their clients.
Salon deZen's skilled nail technician Tomiko pampers finger- and toe-caps with diligent filing and OPI polish in a classic manicure and pedicure service. Over the course of about an hour, files shape nail tips into graceful ovals or squares, then neatening sticks push land-grabbing cuticles back to their own domains. Feet relax with a soothing soak and scrub after parched digits soak in hydrating lotion. Finally, clients select a favored hue from the spectrum of OPI nail polishesand then watch Tomiko paint it on with Mondrian-esque exactitude.
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.
Like a sculptor handling a block of marble, Michelle’s Beauty Day Spa's staff expose the radiance within weary patrons via rejuvenating services for bodies, nails, and faces. They whisk patrons into the serene atmosphere of private rooms to perform treatments such as their signature express facial or a prenatal massage that eases pregnancy-centric aches such as muscle tension, leg cramps, and neck kinks caused by scanning the skies for incoming storks.
