For more than 15 years, owner Makda Kibour has presided over an artistic staff that boasts an aptitude for hair maintenance and fashions fetching looks and stunning styles elevated by an array of enticing extras. Snippists will consult with clients to forge proper beautifying services tailored to individuals, with cuts to frame faces, colors to highlight skin tones, or styles to complement shoulder-perched parrots.
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.
Located in Old Town Alexandria, Rami is a welcoming full-service hair and beauty spot dedicated to making sure clients leave feeling beautiful inside and out. Here, salon goers sip cups of coffee before having their hair snipped and colored, nails and skin attended to, or unwanted hair gently removed. This upscale salon and spa, decorated in minimal white and wood tones, puts an emphasis on making clients feel quietly pampered.
The experienced stylists at Ashalina's Salon & Spa make no secret of their passion for beauty. And rather than just appreciate beauty, they gift it to others with a wide range of hair and skincare services. Custom cuts sculpt locks, while coloring and highlights add a natural or other-worldly sheen to hair. Braiding and gel twists, and special-occasion up-dos, transform clients' style in even more ways. Alternatively, classic and deep-tissue facials cleanse and tone the skin. Masks and peels, meanwhile, lift away layers of dirt and leave faces softer than a cloud draped in velvet.
Stylists work with all hair types at Kari's Dominican Style Hair Salon, and they specialize in natural hair. From retexturizing treatments to weaves, layers, and updos, staffers are adept at transforming clients' hair and scalp with a variety of techniques.
