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.
Mon Sanctuaire?s all white d?cor and relaxing spa treatments restore a sense of serenity to the overworked and stressed. In the treatment rooms, white walls and white curtains surround patrons lying on soft white sheets, waiting for a massage session to release tension resulting from typing at a desk all day and hauling a mattress into the treehouse every night. Guests might also relax here while an aesthetician performs a facial using Institute Esthederm products to restore balance, tighten skin, or fade wrinkles. Body-care sessions such as reflexology or mud wraps with scalp massages further calm the senses.
Master aesthetician Maria Conde rarely encounters a pair of legs that she can't make as smooth as silk, or a pair of eyebrows that she can't shape into elegant arches. The hair-removal expert specializes in swift waxing and sugaring treatments for women as well as for men. But that's not all she offers at Maria Body Image Studio. Conde also cleanses pores with exfoliating facials and promotes detoxification with mineral body wraps. Her eyelash extensions add length and volume for weeks on end, staying in place until they fall out naturally or are plucked for an emergency wish.
The quintet of stylists at Giani Hair Salon work to make clients' hair a source of beauty and self-confidence. Each person who walks through the salon's doors is made the center of attention throughout their appointments or sudden games of charades. While stylists sculpt designer cuts, brush in foil highlights, or refresh hair with luxurious shampoos, clients relax with a glass of wine and enjoy relaxing scalp massages. The team uses only high-end products from brands such as Morrocanoil, Sebastian, and Bumble and bumble.
The stylists at Yalda Beauty Salon and Spa prep their clients for any event or outing with hair services, day and night makeup application, waxing treatments, and nail services. From an outpost nestled inside the Ballston Common Mall, the pros beautify clients with the help of popular salon product lines including Paul Mitchell, Matrix, and TIGI.
