Hi All,

Can anyone recommend a great hair stylist for curly/wavy hair? I am also looking for a colorist to highlight my hair. I go to a place that's fantastic, but they charge about $190 without tip for a haircut and partial highlight. It's way too expensive. If anyone has any recommendations in Northern VA, please let me know.

Thanks!
Tara

I like Bree at Rain salon in Ashburn. She does a great cut. I am going for color next month. $50 for my cut.
I have also tried Radiance in Ashburn but didn't think it was great for the cost. I also went to the Aveda salon in the Dulles Town Center Mall and again didn't think too highly of it.

Good luck!
oh, my friend swears by city lights in ashburn for color but I have yet to try it. I guess they are very reasonable in price there

I have had good experiences in a few places, but they all charge as much or more than you are paying now. I suggest looking for recommendations under the website: CurlSalons: Hair Salons & Stylists on NaturallyCurly.com It has served me well in the different places I've lived when looking for someone new.

I'm having the same frustrations, I'd like to find a Black Hair Salon in the Burke area, but it appears there aren't any! And so now I'm looking into Alexandria since someone said on this message board that this is where many African-Americans in Fairfax Co. live.

I go to the Dynasty Salon in the big shopping plaza at Medford Rd and Little River Turnpike in Annandale. Cut, color, and blow dry is $75. However my color is not highlighting, it's just to cover the gray.

Ask for Sofia. She is the best hair stylist I have ever had. We will be moving later in the year and I know I will never find anyone so talented again.

Dynasty Hair Salon
(703) 256-4700
7444 Little River Turnpike
Annandale VA

Not sure where you live or work, but if you are south Fairfax county try Omar at Salon Prive in Lorton station. Used to be called Salon Red and might still have that name on the door.

Nicole Siri - Strictly Curls. She works in Reston. She actually lives out West and flies in every few weeks to do her client's hair. She is an expert at working with curly hair. She has written a book. Look her up!

I would recommend Jon'Ric International Salon & Spa of Alexandria. They are a multi-cultural salon with reasonable prices and GREAT work. I've been going there for 3 years now. Had hair issues GALORE (spotting, balding, shedding, breakage). Thanks to them, my hair is WONDERFUL now! Try Ky or Debra! I do one or the other. I guarantee that you will LOVE it. Their info is [url=http://www.jonricalexandria.com]Salon And Spa Services | Hair Salon Alexandria | Massage Therapy Alexandria | Nails Alexandria | Facials Alexandria | Skincare Alexandria | Haircolor Alexandria[/url] or 703.549.7786.
