Within the brightly lit space of Kim Sun Young Beauty Salon, wall-mounted mirrors reflect the artful shearing techniques of both junior and senior stylists. The sculptors craft new hairdos and revamp styled locks with coloring and straightening services, including the salon’s signature "panel straight" style. They also perform services that range from comprehensive wedding packages to advanced beauty care in the form of human-hair extensions, skin treatments, and semi-permanent makeup applications that make mascara feel as obsolete as a handwritten invite to a cave-drawing contest.
This studio keeps a certain peace when it comes to the battle of the sexes—at least when competing for salon chairs. Stylists and barbers ferry each gender to separate areas of the studio—one side boasts a modern salon, the other lays claim to a barbershop. But no matter where clients sit, they receive the same level of attention. Stylists fashion women’s hair into desired looks with cuts, color, and ornate origami folds. Barbers, meanwhile, put the finishing touch on men’s appearances with straight edge hot lather shaves or beard and mustache trims.
Staffed by a team of professionals that deliver everything from haute new hairstyles to eyelash extensions, Yvonne's Day Spa has received particular attention from sources such as MSNBC's Today Show for its unique Fish-y-cure pedicures, which rely on tropical fish to exfoliate feet. Toothless Garra rufa, or doctor fish, hail from the freshwater world's top medical schools, but have been invited stateside for the gentle way they nibble dead skin from between the toes, as guests relax into a leather massage chair and dangle their feet in the creature's warm, watery habitat. After watching the treatment soar to popularity, and dedicating countless hours to learning to breed and care for his tiny aestheticians, co-owner John Ho franchised the idea and made it the signature of all three Yvonne's locations. CBS rated the spa's manicures and pedicures as among the best in the DC area in 2011, as they extend beyond the aquarium to include OPI products and high-tech UV gel–curing methods. Stylists offer guests soda and coffee before offering scalps nourishing sips from bottles of hair care products including Goldwell, Nexxus, Matrix, and Paul Mitchell. Hot stones and glass cups gain healing powers in the hands of Yvonne's massage therapists, and ingredients including sea salt, honey, and cappuccino lotion infuse many treatments to leave skin glowing with health and ready for a snack.
The Divine Touch Salon offers treatments that coalesce corrective therapies with holistic modalities. Many of the salon's skincare methods, however, incorporate high-tech products in place of plant-based ones so that clients see results. The multivitamin power exfoliator facial fights fine lines, dryness, and roughly textured skin with a concentrated blend of vitamins A, C, and E, a much better way to remove dead skin cells than by rubbing one’s face in the corduroy jacket of a passersby.
To prepare skin for detoxification, an aesthetician massages it with essential oils. Then, the body is tightly wrapped in heated, herb-soaked linens. Though soothing scents fill the air, the detoxifying herbal body wrap at The Divine Touch Salon doesn’t just help clients relax; the two-hour treatment can inspire weight loss and even decrease the appearance of cellulite. The salon also performs facial lifts, waxing, makeup applications, and at-home services.
