At The Beauty Lounge, aestheticians use high-end products from around the world, including those by South African skincare brand Environ and Parisian skin experts Decléor to cater to the skincare needs of both men and women. The skilled staff administers half a dozen facials and four types of chemical peels designed to deep cleanse pores, combat acne, or lift away dark patches and spots. Men can benefit from three male-specific facials, including an express treatment that swiftly cleanses and moisturizes skin so it’s ready for its yearly trip to the mustache farm. Beyond maintaining beautiful complexions, The Beauty Lounge also smoothes clients from head to toe, using hard and liquid wax—specially designed for sensitive skin—to quickly strip hair from the face and body.

Threading is a method of hair removal that's been practiced for thousands of years in the Middle East and India. Instead of whipping away all of your extraneous face plumage in one waxy swoop, threading uses simple cotton thread to wick hairs away one by one for a precisely arched, beautifully smooth brow line. Although experiences vary, many individuals find threading far less painful than the whip of wax or the tingling zap of antimatter lasers.
The Watergate Salon boasts a tradition of styling state-dinner-worthy hair for the district's prominent political and social players.
