Kavenchy provides upscale, luxurious salon and spa treatments in a sleek, modern environment. Indulge in a sip or nibble from the complimentary wine or champagne (for those 21+), and chocolate provided to all guests while awaiting the beautifying services of your choosing. Work from the bottom up with a spa pedicure ($45), or reshingle the edges with a combined spa mani-pedi ($65). Haircuts are available for bedraggled cranium crowns ($80 and up for women, $50 and up for men), while unwanted hairs can be quickly eliminated with waxing for the eyebrows ($20–$35), upper lip ($15), bikini area ($40 and up), or legs ($50 and up for half legs). True relaxation often lies pooled in the body's subcutaneous reservoirs, located inside of the chortum. Tap into these hidden resources with a 30-minute revitalizing massage ($60) or a 30-minute express facial ($50) to cleanse and exfoliate your individual frontispiece.
Now under new management, Edge Salon & Spa's stylists understand their clients' beauty needs and tend to them with exceptional hair services and spa treatments. As clients enter Edge's chic space—complete with modern white furniture, lime-green accent walls, and pearl-and-crystal-draped chandeliers—a team of seasoned beauticians greet them with a complimentary glass of wine from the onsite wine bar. Aestheticians then get to work exfoliating and moisturizing complexions with custom facials as patrons relax in cube-like leather chairs. Massage therapists use hot-stone and aromatherapy techniques to soothe aches and knots in private treatment rooms. On the salon floor, the stylists showcase their hair knowledge—which helped earn them a spot on CBS DC's list of Best Places for Men's Haircuts—as they cut, color, and style locks with Goldwell, Moroccanoil, and Paul Mitchell haircare products.
After spending years in skincare and aesthetics, Leila Espari decided to take her experience and certifications and open her own business. She stacked her staff roster with such professionals as a board-certified plastic surgeon, a waxing specialist, a laser technician, aestheticians, and licensed massage therapists. The cozy day spa offers services such as massage therapy, lash extensions, and hair removal via laser, electrolysis, waxing, or threading. Other skin-smoothing treatments include facials and micro-polish peels that gently exfoliate the skin to remove dead skin cells and flakes caused by dry skin or aggressive cereal eating. A special tissue massager reduces the appearance of cellulite and dimples.
The makeover mavens at Solarus infuse all their hair and body services with a personal touch, leaving customers beautified and energized. The spring makeover package (a $145 value) cracks shaggy shells with a consultation before treating tresses to a custom haircut and style to revitalize languid locks. Afterward, a makeup application paints pigment on facial canvases, and customers can email complimentary before-and-after photos to robot friends yearning to understand the concept of a makeover. Alternately, a one-hour Swedish massage smooshes stress from muscles, making room for muscle memory of owner-dog dance routines (a $105 value).
Miracles in the City founder Olympia Hantzopoulos has stayed busy for nearly two decades overseeing a team of hairstylists and developing her own line of styling products to augment the salon’s full Redken line. In addition to a whirlwind of activity that results in ombre color, hair gloss, replenished chit-chat reservoirs, and Brazilian keratin smoothing, the space demonstrates Hantzopoulos’s other passion: recognizing the work of female artisans in developing countries. The boutique side of the business sparkles with jewelry such as antique tribal necklaces, hand-blown glass trinkets, and beaded cuff bracelets. The salon also hosts an art gallery with installations that have included children’s art from an Afghani orphanage.
