The skilled staff of stylists and aestheticians at George Bacchus inject zest into lackluster carnal shells, boosting appearances from faces to follicles. 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.
The destination for those with aesthetic goals big and small, Potomac Skin Care is a welcoming space where med-spa technologies seem to rewind time. Zerona lasers make silhouettes more svelte, smoothing away cellulite as it shines on the skin. Botox and Obagi Blue Peel treatments help erase fine lines and lend more even complexions. These and other treatments are conducted with care after a consultation, during which the technician and client check out future results via time machine.
The stylists at Studio 355 Hair & Day Spa believe cutting hair is like sculpting, and it shows. Giving careful though to elements such as angle, weight, and movement, their final haircuts flatter clients' face shapes, and never look heavy—even when enhanced with natural-looking extensions. To stay at the forefront of cutting edge hair trends, the team attends regular seminars around the world and the stylists regularly show off their mane-shearing chops at hair-cutting competitions such as the Intercoiffure.
The same artistry shines through in Studio 355's spa services, which range from correcting Cosmedix peels to aromatherapy massages. To leave hands and feet looking their best, they also dole out pedicures enhanced with herbs like organic ginger or jasmine, and perform precise manicures, that never involve shooting at polish hands with a paintball gun.
To J. Michael and Mia Chreky, there’s no better business partner than your life partner, and no better philosophy than a simple one. That's why the two decided to co-own J. Michael The Salon, where they operate with a crystal-clear goal in mind: "Great hair. Always." Together, they helm a team of stylists, aestheticians, and makeup artists who provide services ranging from haircuts and highlights to mani-pedis and makeup work. In addition, complimentary coffee, tea, and pastries are available, with the helpful staff on hand to remind you not to get crumbs in your manicure.
