Inside Studio 355's contemporary salon, a team of beauty experts helps clients to showcase their best selves with a lengthy list of hair, skin, and nail services. The salon boasts a large team of stylists and master stylists, many of them educated abroad under highly regarded hair programs and well-known stylists to the stars. With Aveda products in its arsenal, the hair team uses its varied talents to give clients any look they desire, be it extensions, bridal updos, creative coloring, or straight, relaxed hair. An accomplished skin therapist helps fight the signs of aging or skin conditions such as acne with services for both men and women, and waxing treatments leave body hair wondering what it did to not deserve its own updo.
In one language, the word "Lavand" means a small Mediterranean flower. In another, it means a sultry woman.?At Salon Lavand, both definitions are apt. As with the word, the salon deals in beauty, and the staff?which features an internationally trained senior artistic director and a team of senior stylists?summons beauty with elegant hair and cosmetic treatments. Whether clients opt for a cut and blowdry, color gloss treatment, or a Moroccan Oil restorative hair mask, they'll be in the hands of a stylist who brings experience, training, and creativity to the chair.?
Salon Lavand also features a blowdry bar as well as a brow bar. At the former, stylists thread, wax, and tint eyebrows to give clients elegant, put-together profiles that look good at clubs, at the office, or on homemade counterfeit currency.

Hanging lamps throw flickers of amber light onto the dark walls of Tea Spa's lobby, a tranquil cove that foreshadows the pampering performed beyond the front room. Included on a list of Washingtonian magazine's "Great Day Spas 2013," the spa's licensed massage therapists use varied massage techniques, essential oils, and hot towels during bodywork treatments such as a signature massage. Clients can also use their brief reprieve from the harshly lit outside world to nourish skin with a vitamin-infused facial or to decompress in the infrared sauna and bid adieu to toxins before they have a chance to settle in and wire the body for basic cable.
