I have wavy hair. It has a mind of its own and does not conform to today's styles without lots of tools. But with Christine, my hair is perfect - it falls perfectly and can be straight if I want it to be! She totally understands how to cut so that the hair is wash and wear and so manageable. I have seen her versatility with other clients. Everyone walks out looking fabulous. But the cut is the thing so it can be kept up at home. She has the magic touch combined with tremendous talent - and a fabulous personality. The excellent coffee in real china cups is a nice touch not to mention the relaxing shampoo.
I recently visited 1201 Salon for a cut and came away extremely satisfied with the experience. Nadia and her staff were a delight to meet and offered first class service in addition to a cozy salon that made me feel at home. I'm looking forward to my next visit! The cut was fantastic, and I would highly recommend 1201 Salon to any of my friends.
The 3 Cs: Cut, Color, Christine! I have been going to Christine from her days at Tara Salon. She is amazing with highlights/lowlights. They always look natural, and she adjusts with the seasons/my preferences. Sunnier for summer, more subdued in the winter. She keeps my hair healthy and long. She did my highlights for my wedding, with more blonde in the back, front and sides, in anticipation of an up-do. It looked fabulous. She also does very precise cuts on short hair, including my husband and mother. She is a true professional, and the salon is adorable.
I attended the 1201 party and was exceptionally impressed with the owner Nadia@ the charming environment that she has established for herself. It was very disappointing for me to read some of these comments.It appears to me possibly there could be sabatoge in those comments. I did not experience any tension or unpleasantry's during my time there. The staff that I met at the event all seemed charming as it's environment.I strongly recommend you give this place a try,I've already booked my appointments.
Christine did my hair. She was exceptional, both as a hairstylist and a person. I have a fabulous haircut and my experience has made me a regular. Had a great manicure while there too. Staying at a hotel like I was (Weston Grand on 23rd and M), you''ll be very pleased you walked over.
I have been so scared to try a new stylist but I am not anymore. I recently had my hair cut by Nadia, the owner, and she pointed out how my old stylist was cutting my hair wrong. I feel like my hair is thanking me for finally getting the right cut and the right stylist. Oh and another thing I learned was that eyebrow threading is so much better for the skin around your eyes. Ayse, the women who did my eyebrows, told me that waxing can stretch the skin and cause sagging. No thank you. So she simply used a thread to shape my eyebrows. Amazing! Try 1201 Salon because I walked out feeling like a better version of myself.
I just want the whole world to know that this small, adorable, yet big in personality of a salon is by far one of the best places I've been to in such a long time for all my salon needs. I'll start with my hair by saying that these stylists are extremely talented and seem to all work together like a family, which is refreshing and very welcoming compared to other huge salons in the DC area. I had a fantastic mani & pedi that was so relaxing, not to mention a wax job that no woman ever looks forward to, but the lady who did it was so fast and gentle that I had almost no pain. I would recommend anyone and everyone to come to this unique one of a kind salon for an amazing experience that you'll keep bragging to all your girlfriends about!!!
Stop the presses!!! Oh my God!!! 1201 Salon you must have it in your life. Traveled to the DC area on buissness. Stayed at the Fairmont Hotel where Nadia Zarkeshian was referred to me. This amazing hair stylist took my hair to a whole new level. She is the owner of this prestigious place.She explained to me that she has been in the industry for 19 years, and it definetyey showed in her work. My hair was fabulous!!! After wards I received a make-up application by a charming exquisite young lady named Meghan. My face was flawless!!! I enjoyed my full experience at 1201 Salon, and will be returning when ever I'm in the DC area.
I visited this salon when I first moved to the Washington DC area. This charming exclusive salon was the best hidden secret in the Georgetown Foggy Bottom area. I received a full color service, and cut by Christine. This young lady was a wizard with her creativity and her edgy cutting styles. Also the environment was very relaxing and cozy. I could have spent my entire day there. I also experienced a pedicure, manicure, and eyebrow threading from Ayse. I felt like a new woman walking out of there. I strongly suggest if you're in the area to drop in you won't be disappointed.
I discovered Samantha Banks (formerly at Bill Lawrence Salon) after reading the many positive reviews on-line. Many clients have raved about her makeover talents, but what they left out is her acute attention to creating and maintaining HEALTHY hair. This stylist is a virtual Wikepedia! And the results on my hair are incredible - my hair has never felt and looked this gorgeous! My hair color is lustrous and looks natural, my cut is chic (and I can maintain the style at home, myself)! Do yourself a favor and visit Samantha at 1201 Salon - an intimate boutique salon in the West End of Georgetown, (fabulous jewelry, attentive customer service)! The team here really makes you feel at home.
