When Salon Roi first opened, its name was spelled like it sounds: Roy. This predictably led to all sorts of confusion: hockey fans everywhere believed it was the salon of NHL superstar-goalie Patrick Roy. Roy’s name is known for its counter-intuitive, French-sounding pronunciation: wah. Colorado Avalanche fans asking for various facials related to Patrick Roy (wah) flooded Salon Roy. Popular requests included:
- Pure Bliss Roy (wah) Facial: a life-affirming facial with an exfoliating mask of soothing lemon rind and savory tamarind.
- Wall of Roy (wah) Protective Facial: an exfoliating #33 mask with pore-sealing aloe that blocks pucks from entering your pores.
- Bloody Roy (wah) Facial: a clarifying blood mask with soothing, point-blank slap shots.
Salon Roy was unable to provide any of these facials—many of them were illegal—so to avoid further misunderstandings, it changed its name to the phonetically unmistakable Salon Roi. Now it’s an outstanding spa that’s well known for its wonderful Flax-C Anti-Aging Facial, which you can get with today’s Groupon for 58% off.

A salon might not seem like a typical destination for a tour bus. Nevertheless, the Old Towne Trolley makes a stop at Salon Roi, where a well-known mural of Marilyn Monroe decorates the upper levels of the restored, four-story historic townhouse. Created by the artist John Bailey in 1980 for Mr. Roi Barnard’s 40th birthday, the Marilyn Monroe mural has since become an unexpected Washington landmark, and has been reproduced on postcards, T-shirts, calendars, and vice president Biden’s favorite jean jacket. More Marilyn memorabilia decorates the rest of the unisex salon and spa, where expert stylists pamper guests with haircare, facials, massages, and other spa services.
