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.
Nail ETC II de-scuffs finger-and-toe hardware with a plethora of nail-prettifying services. During the course of one hour, technicians buff toenails and file around the edges, preventing nails from wreaking havoc on your couture bubble-wrap dress. Feet get soaked, sugar scrubbed, smoothed, and covered with a soothing mineral mask. Nail ETC II technicians then cover feet and toes with a hot towel for five to ten minutes. The mask relieves dry skin, aches, and pains, and improves skin elasticity. A custom polish adds a choice of glaze, and in a hot-stone massage with gentle kneading, carefully placed stones soothe feet that are sore from wearing too-tight moon boots.
Rodi Salon and Spa's Cel.lux cosmetic light device shines a spectrum of colors on patients' faces, aiming to soothe a range of skin ailments in 25- to 45-minute light therapy sessions. As the client lies supine on a treatment table, a luminous wand passes methodically over features without touching them, much like a human windshield wiper, emitting a custom cocktail of rays that attempts to treat skin maladies. Each of the light's seven colors is designed to match a healing trait, with violet purifying the skin, blue soothing, aqua oxygenizing, green diminishing redness, yellow toning muscles, orange helping skin tone, and red stimulating collagen and causing all traffic on the forehead to screech to a standstill.

The talented stylists of Salon Etoiles bring decades of experience and education to every service they perform. In fact, when they're not snipping bobs into topiary giraffes, arranging locks into wedding-day masterpieces, or imbuing strands with vibrant color, many of the stylists study their craft at seminars and classes. The salon even has a trichologist on staff, whose in-depth knowledge of the science behind hair loss and scalp diseases helps heal ailing strands from the inside out. Guests also rely on the staff for threading and nailcare—as a CND certified salon, Salon Etoiles's in-house nail experts possess a special knack for Shellac manicures and pedicures.
