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. A series of private treatment rooms branch off from the salon, shrouding clients in privacy 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.
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.
Owner Walid Shaker has sharpened his shears at salons across America and Europe, making him a go-to for actors, models, politicians, and the paparazzi who follow them. Now out of his eponymous salon, Walid and his team of stylists craft elegant layers and highlight strands with products from high-end brands such as Kenra and Goldwell. Clients can also request a restorative deep-conditioning treatment, an elegant updo, or a Brazilian blowout to straighten frizzy strands.
Bazzak Salon's new location—a 120+-year-old brownstone townhouse in the heart of historic Old Town Alexandria—not only oozes charm and character, it also has allowed the staff to expand its service menu. The team of American- and European-trained designers and master colorists have 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, they still nourish locks with the natural and eco-friendly ingredients in René Furterer and Privé products, and specialize in adding face-framing accents or ombre highlights that, like a firefly falling asleep, slowly transition from light to dark.
Diane offers a bevy of hair services that include cuts, styles, highlights, and color treatments. In addition to tending to heads of hair in a salon setting, she also offers on-location bridal packages that include hairstyling, makeup application, and eyelash extensions.
During the treatments, Izalia's staff of trained follicular assassins will unleash microscopic moonrakers on the hair-havens of the skin in an effort to efficiently epilate. The lasers heat up melanin deposits deep below the skin's surface, sending follicles into a non-growth hairbenation. Skin-fringe production is reduced, and clients can finally feel free to wear a bathing suit around the office without fear of harassment from anti-cilia co-workers.
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.
