Current owner Flora Suissa and the founders of Suissa Salon trained in Paris and Montreal before opening their first salon in 1970 in the US. They took what they learned in the City of Light and the Province of Poutine, and created their own brand of salons. It was only a matter of time before their style shops grew into myriad locations.
Today, Suissa features a roster of talented stylists, aestheticians, and nail artists. They've also got an ace up their sleeve: Eve Diaz, who developed her own line of beauty products?LaPenotiere?which is the primary product line featured here. Armed with talent and products, stylists deliver haircuts, coloring, and keratin treatments that discipline frizzy and static-addicted hair. They also offer weft tape extensions and hijab services, offered in private suites. Suissa's stylists pride themselves on their versatility, which means they're familiar with a large and diverse client base and are adept at working with clients of all ethnicities and a wide range of hair types.
Conveniently located in Tysons Corner Center Mall, Modern Nail Studio has everything the modern nail needs. Unlike old-fashioned nails, modern nails appreciate a classy atmosphere and mood lighting, details that Modern Nail Studio delivers. Clean lines and a neutral palette paint Modern Nail Studio into the 22nd century, and indulgent, oversized pedicure chairs with headrests give the owners of the modern nail a much needed break from their taxing days working as taxidermists of tax collectors. Translucent curtains fall gently from the ceiling, dispersing the pendant lighting throughout the cozy boutique.
