Hopeful hair havers can seek mane taming with a stylist, who will shampoo strands and trim tresses before blow-drying them sleek and arranging locks into comely coifs ($70 value). A keratin treatment ($300 value) sends a smoothing platoon deep into cuticles, reducing frizz and curl and rendering hair as silky and glossy as a doll's pupil for up to five months. This treatment smoothes all types of hair, including color-treated and chemically processed tresses, allocating time previously spent styling to new hobbies, such as competitive DJing and lawn-dart removal.

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.
Evie and David Cohen founded David's Beautiful People in 1973 with one goal in mind: to create a welcoming, down-to-earth space for clients to get modern haircuts. To that end, David has traveled the globe for more than 50 years, touching down in destinations such as Italy, Germany, and France, where he’s picked up talented stylists, devoured obscene amounts of Nutella, and learned the latest haircare techniques. He is a member of the prestigious Intercoiffure organization, and some of his hair handiwork—inspired by the Gilded Age of The Great Gatsby—was featured in Washington Life’s September 2012 Balls & Galas issue. The precision of David and his team’s cutting skills has kept some of the original clients coming back for nearly four decades. This customer loyalty earned the establishment recognition as a top vote getter in Bethesda Magazine’s 2011 Best of Bethesda contest.
The large, bustling salon is divided into two rooms: one for cuts and another for color services. The coloring room features an advanced ventilation system to help clients and stylists recover their breath. The crew also offers mani-pedis and silk-wrap nails.
