Current owner Flora Suissa and the founders of Suissa Salon trained in Paris and Montreal before opening their first salon in 1970 in the US. They took what they learned in the City of Light and the Province of Poutine, and created their own brand of salons. It was only a matter of time before their style shops grew into myriad locations.
Today, Suissa features a roster of talented stylists, aestheticians, and nail artists. They've also got an ace up their sleeve: Eve Diaz, who developed her own line of beauty products?LaPenotiere?which is the primary product line featured here. Armed with talent and products, stylists deliver haircuts, coloring, and keratin treatments that discipline frizzy and static-addicted hair. They also offer weft tape extensions and hijab services, offered in private suites. Suissa's stylists pride themselves on their versatility, which means they're familiar with a large and diverse client base and are adept at working with clients of all ethnicities and a wide range of hair types.
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.
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.
