After several years overseas, I needed to find a new stylist in NOVA. A colleague recommended Lorraine and I'm delighted. It's hard to find someone who is both skilled and also has great rapport with her clients. Thanks, Lorraine!

I have found my new go-to salon in Old Town! I've known Lorraine, the owner, for several years and just recently needed to find a new stylist and salon. Lorraine gave me beautiful blonde highlights and a great cut! I couldn't be happier! Thanks Lorraine!

I had lost a lot of hair due to medication and for the past three years my hair had been badly damaged by coloring. I was at my wit's end until I found Lorraine Aprile's website and stopped in one day. Lorraine herself took the time to chat with me and I made an appointment for a few weeks later. I couldn't believe the transformation. I told Lorraine I wanted something drastic. Well, she knew exactly how to cut my naturally curly hair. When Lorraine was finished, she gave me a mirror to see the back of my head and I was astonished. I can't remember the last time I had such an incredible cut. The cut, service and people at Lorraine Aprile's Salon are definitely First Class. I have had nothing but compliments from everyone at work - my haircut now makes me feel attractive. I would and have recommended this salon to my friends.

I went to Lorraine Aprile salon for a hair cut. I had an absolutely wonderful experience from the moment I stepped through the door. The lady at the desk is most welcoming and friendly. Jessica, the stylist who cut my hair, is very kind, personable and knowledgeable without being overly chatty. She suggested a leave-in conditioner for my hair, but was not at all pushy about buying product. The salon prices are very reasonable and I feel like the quality of the cut is fabulous! I definitely recommend this salon. I will certainly be back on a regular basis!

The previous salon I visited had badly damaged my hair with a perm and color treatment. I was extremely upset. I looked like a wild woman with dry frizzy hair sticking out. I found Lorraine Aprile's salon on this web site and after reading the reviews I knew she was the hair stylist for me. Lorraine spent time with me explaining the problem and the best fix which meant cutting off as much of the damaged hair as possible. Lorraine gave me a wonderful hair cut and colored my hair with a more natural brown. I now have soft shiny curls. I am thrilled and look forward to my next visit to the salon.

My mom used to always take me to Hair Cuttery, but for my birthday she treated me to a very classy place, Lorraine Aprile Salon! They were so nice to me, I had my hair highlighted and cut and I look fabulous! My friends love my hair, and now they all want to go there too.. they also give 20% off to all students, which is the best part! They also have great jewelry and makeup.

I have been going to the Lorraine Aprile Salon now for over year and a half. Prior to that, I had been a devotee of the local Hair Cuttery. Lorraine and her staff of professionals talked me into going from a longer cur to more of a Matt Lauer style and I haven't looked back since. My wife loves the way I look and I attribute it to Lorraine's sense of style. I will keep coming to her. I am hooked!

Lorraine Aprile salon is so different from other salons I have experienced, they are usually so loud, and way too many people running around for it to feel relaxing. At Lorraine Aprile salon, the staff take care of you from the minute you walk in the door. I went there as a new client and was given 50% off the cost of my first haircut, what a deal! I will be back, Lorraine was great, she spent the time really listening to what I wanted before rushing me off to the shampoo area, and gave me exactly what I asked for, and then the shampoo assistant made me feel great with her head massage. They also reward you for sending in your referrals.
the atmosphere is so welcoming for you and your kids, you do not want to leave.

We all know the relationship with our hairstylist comes second only to family. When I had to leave my hairstylist of 6 years upon moving from New Orleans, I was nervous about finding a replacement. Lorraine Aprile was the 7th salon I went to after moving to the area-- I've never even thought of going anywhere else after my first cut with Lorraine. The salon is a calming oasis and Lorraine sets the tone. If you're in the mood to chat-- she'll carry on easy, entertaining conversation. In the mood to chill-- she'll focus on your hair and leave you to meditate.

My hair is not easy (uneven wavy, thick, and prone to frizz) but it always looks fantastic after Lorraine finishes (and for several weeks after). The staff is great as well. Go-- you won't be dissapointed!

I totally enjoyed my time at the salon. I had been traveling to PA for
haircuts, but decided this is the place for me. Lorraine cut and styled my hair beautifully. I am very happy!

Old Town has about 40 hair salons, and I've tried just about all of the most popular ones -- all of which did a very mediocre job on my fine, thin hair, and most of which stuck me with their junior or trainee stylists. (I mean, who do you have to sleep with to get a master stylist in this town?) And then there's the whole techno/disco music blaring and herding customers in and out of the shampoo room and just way too much noise and activity for my taste. I found Lorraine Aprile on the Internet and, taking no chances, showed up without an appointment to scope the place out. I expected to make an appointment for a consultation. Was I ever surprised when Lorraine herself greeted me and said she could accommodate me right then and there! She professionally and quite charmingly diagnosed my hair problems, made suggestions, and went to work on me -- and all without interruption or blaring disco music or herds of stylists and customers trafficking through. I'll go back again and again and again.

I found this experience not only unsatisfactory - It was borderline torture. From the stylist (the owner and namesake) who gossiped about all of her clients to the rude shampoo girl who was ripping out my foils and with it my hair, I was in complete h***. When I asked politely for the assistant to be more careful, she yelled at me (no kidding). I couldn't wait to get out of there. Unfortunately, I had to pay first. I usually come out of the salon refreshed and happy and do not mind paying the bill at the end. I felt quite the opposite with the experience. DO NOT waste your time or money with this place!
