Just because the stylists at D.C. take hair very seriously doesn't mean they have to take themselves seriously. On the salon's front door is a black-and-white photo of Christopher Walken, below which reads "We Accept Walkens." Good-natured riffs such as these help clients feel at home as they seek out a haircut to fit their unique, and often quirky, personalities. D.C. CreationZ is also a proud Matrix concept salon, specializing in color techniques trending here and overseas.
It would be impossible not to feel pampered at Jan's Skin & Hair Studio. First, guests take a seat in front of a mirror perched on a robin's-egg blue wall, surrounded by brightly colored bouquets and star-shaped lamps. From there, stylists go to work, cutting, styling, and conditioning strands for beautiful new looks. Stylists also add hues and highlights using ammonia-free color. Alternatively, guests indulge in skincare services, such as facials and paraffin-wax treatments. Inside the salon's private room, the staff gets rid of unwanted face and body hair with waxing sessions, which use natural products.
