A blown kiss often gets misdirected in the wind, inadvertently creating lovelorn alley cats and hopelessly romantic mailboxes. Take control of the signals you send with today's Groupon. Choose from the following two hair and waxing services at Ava Salon & Skincare.
- $30 for $65 worth of any salon hair services.
- $12 for a brow wax, a $25 value.
Amid the gorgeous hardwood floors, homey décor, wide windows, and delicate natural light of Ava's exquisitely arranged salon and spa, hirsute heads can submit themselves to a slew of scintillating scalp services. If all you need is for a skilled groundskeeper to trim your head-hedge, go with a shampoo and cut ($40). If you're craving a new 'do after seeing how awful your hair looked on those Wanted posters, indulge in a shampoo, cut, and style for $65. Color treatments include a single-process coloring ($80), cap highlights and toner ($75), and a full foil to match follicles to the fall foliage ($160). As they neatly knit and purl your naturally occurring yarn into place, Ava Salon's bubbly professional stylists will keep up a stream of friendly banter, making you feel like you're watching the DVD commentary track to your own life.
Now that thick, well-oiled handlebar moustaches are no longer the popular look among women, Groupon customers can partake in a ceremonial waxing with today's secondary option. Ava's aestheticians perform all hair removal with Nufree liquid—a soy-based, antibacterial, and antimicrobial product that heats only to 98.9 degrees, will not burn skin, and adheres only to hair. All prices listed are base prices and may vary due to length, thickness, texture, and frowziness of follicles. Call ahead to schedule your appointment.
Cancellations must be made by noon of the day before the scheduled appointment. New clients only.
Yelpers give Ava Salon & Skincare an average of 4.5 stars:
- This place has it all--friendly staff with great expertise, wine, and mani/pedi and waxing--it's your one stop shop for beauty! LOVE it! – Jennifer M.
- Quite a nice place in Capitol Hill -- convenient for work (if you're ever on the Hill) and right by a coffee shop and wine bar. Ambience is great -- everyone is very nice, professional, and polite. – F.Q.
AVA Salon & Skincare
At any given time, AVA Salon and Spa might be occupied by a mix of political figures, celebrities, and locals. This diverse clientele could easily be ascribed to the studio's location on Capitol Hill, just two blocks from the Library of Congress and the filming location of "I'm Just a Bill." The more likely reason, though, rests in the approach of AVA's stylists, skin therapists, and makeup artists.
With careers that have included work for fashion shows, photo shoots, and the big screen, AVA's beauty gurus bring a wealth of experience to each guest. This expertise extends into services such as hairstyling and coloring, facials, mani-pedis, and waxing. The team also uses only high-end product such as Aquage, Dermalogica, and Spa Ritual, which guests can purchase for at-home care.
