The talented stylists of Salon Etoiles bring decades of experience and education to every service they perform. In fact, when they're not snipping bobs into topiary giraffes, arranging locks into wedding-day masterpieces, or imbuing strands with vibrant color, many of the stylists study their craft at seminars and classes. The salon even has a trichologist on staff, whose in-depth knowledge of the science behind hair loss and scalp diseases helps heal ailing strands from the inside out. Guests also rely on the staff for threading and nailcare—as a CND certified salon, Salon Etoiles's in-house nail experts possess a special knack for Shellac manicures and pedicures.
The Washingtonian declared Amir Salon one of its top 23 salons to try in 2010, particularly for those looking for low-maintenance cuts and new brunette hues. Even in the face of increased notoriety, owner Amir Gilanshah still makes each appointment personal, consulting with clients to ensure they select the right style and color before any snipping begins. Along with Amir’s hair care services, waxing and facial specialist Renee blends nature-based ingredients into relaxing masks and hair removal sessions gentle enough for sensitive skin with a propensity for yelping.
Trinity Med Spa's team of professionals specializes in all types of treatments that improve the appearance of skin. Their focus, like that of the laser they work with, is hair-removal. The laser can be trained most anywhere on the body, including the back, legs, underarms, and other areas exposed during swimsuit season and moments of panic when you forget where your bellybutton is. In addition to laser hair-removal, the spa also promotes beauty with an arsenal of chemical peels, facial elixirs, and skin-tightening agents.
