Davia and Anna provided a facial and massage respectively and they were both excellent; providing a warm welcome, a caring service, and a professional job. They certainly know their business and their performance speaks to that.
I am, as always, thrilled with my cut. I've been getting my hair cut - and occupationally colored - here for almost 20 years, and the consistent quality, professionalism and warmth of this institution never disappoint.
This place is so relaxing and professional. I have never had a problem here and I will continue to come here.
I visited Salon Roi after finding them on this site and I'm thrilled I discovered them! They were able to fit me in for a cut that day and my stylist was fantastic. She talked me through what I wanted, we looked at a photo and she offered modifications of the style. Roi, the owner, was styling a client next to us and offered compliments of both my hair and of the cut. He was working on a woman who's known him for 35+ years and I discovered that Salon Roi had been in that spot since the late '60s.The salon itself was very comfy - it seemed small but has has a few floors and each seems pretty compartmentalized. I will definitely be going back for my hair and intend to book nail and facial appointments very soon.
I have had massages from Europe to South Africa and have never been so relaxed and healed at the same time. The massage is healing more than my Physical Therapist has done for me.I left without the pain I walked in with. The relief was immediate and amazing.
I was in desparate need of a haircut just out of the Metro in AM, so I called Salon Roi just to see if they happened to have any availability at 5PM on a Friday. Since I was literally right outside, they were extremely friendly and said to just come right up. I was handed over to Blanca who greeted me as soon as I reached the receptionist, and took me back to her chair.
I get a simple cut, 2 on the sides, faded up, real short on the top, messy/spiked in the front, yet somehow, the last 3 places I tried in DC/Bethesda (just moved here in April), were extremely sub-par considering the $$. As such, I was hesitant to drop another 50 bucks only to wish I had just gone to SuperCuts, but I figured let's give it a shot. Blanca definitely made me glad I came in. She was extremely friendly, has worked there for years (I won't say how many), and gave me the best cut I've had in a long time.
I'm looking forward to go back and try their other services.
I've been going to Salon Roi for many years. I lived in the area when I first started going there, but over the years I've been known to commute over an hour to get my hair cut. I find the atmosphere very cosmopolitan, the staff very professional and fun...and the services offered terrific. I've tried to go to other salons--closer to home perhaps, but always...always end up back at Roi's. I'm so thrilled they take me back with no questions asked! : )
Alicia did my wax and was so thorough, I couldn't be more pleased. I can't tell you how many times I've had an aesthetician rip off a few strips of wax and tell you to meet her up front for her money. Alicia took her time, made sure I was comfortable, and went back through to tweeze anything that was too short for the wax to get.
I went for a groupon European facial. I called the day it was expiring and they said they would extend the expiration date because they didn't have any appointments that day. I had Odeta who was lovely. She suggested I get a different kind of facial for $10 more. My skin looks so much better and feels so much cleaner.I would come back here again.
Was super pleased with mani
The nail tech's name was Marita. She was nice
The place was cute and the people were lovely.
I came here for spa week last year and had a massage and oxygen facial. Both services were excellent! We were really late because of a huge accident but they were very accommodating. I'd have to say their oxygen facial is the best facial I've ever had. I left the spa completely glowing!
This salon was amazing! I was so happy with the service i received here. I will DEFINITELY be back.
The only reason I can't give this place 5 stars is the ambiance wasn't top notch, and I've been to salons/high-end barbers in the past where you are offered beer/wine, a hot towel and facial massage. That will always be my 5-star experience, but this is probably the best standalone cut I've had.
This is not my usual place but I was desperate and so I went here. I was actually really pleased with them. They do a good job.
I have never had a bad experience here.
Wonderful salon. Everyone here was very polite and professional. I was very happy.
I have no problem with the quality of the pedicure I received. The nail tech was very good.
The hairdresser didn't really speak English and didn't give me what I wanted. Customer service was terrible. The place also seems run-down - would never go there again.
The nail tech was very good and very nice to talk to.
The entire staff is lovely.
The employees were nice and curtious.
Highly recommended for men's cuts!
Great little salon. Everything was just perfect.
I happened to stumble across this hidden gem during a DC spa week, a couple of years ago and have been a client since. Salon Roi is quaint and the service exceptional. Each time I walk in the door, I am courteously greeted by the receptionist and offered tea or water. With decor honoring Marilyn Monroe, the building is a converted row house with three stories, which creates a quiet, relaxing atmosphere if you're receiving a facial or massage. Services for manicures, pedicures, and hair are provided in a more open space, allowing for socializing with friends. One thing I particularly like is that on certain days of the week, they offer a 20% discount to students. This helps me to be regular with my appointments. If seeking an skin services, I highly recommend Daiva. She's extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. I have also seen Odetta when Daiva was unavailable - also fantastic. If looking for an outstanding spa experience with great service and a knowledgeable staff, try Salon Roi.
I had an express facial with Odeta, who was lovely and knowledgeable. Highly recommend her. The receptionist was friendly and offered me a glass of water.
I just moved to Dc and did't know were to go for my hair, so I start asking my friends and one of tham recomended Salon Roi, she told me that she has been going to salon for many years and gets hair color and cuts by Alicia. I try to book my appointment with Alicia, but she was booked so I endup getting my highlights by Mike Hok, and I am so happy, he does a such wonderful job and he is funny and really friendly. I highly recommend Salon Roi for your beauty need, also, people at the salon are friendly, also you get free starbucks coffe there!!!
From the Marilyn Monroe fresca to the spiraling staircase up the narrow townhouse, everything at Salon Roi is fun. Eventhough I have a 'challenging' health problem, I find that the stylists at salon Roi are patient and provide the best haircuts in the area.
I just love it! And appreciate their kindness.
Love Salon Roi! The staff is super friendly and the services they provide are fabulous. Thus far I have had hair styling and highlights, facials, manicures & pedicures done. The staff surely takes time to take of their clients, certainly did not feel rushed. Absolutely trust Alicia with my hair, she goes above and beyond expectations. Daiva's facials are out of this world...relaxation, relaxation, relaxation. Will certainly continue going back to this salon.
Daiva is a fantastic aesthetician and provides one of the best facials in the DC area. She really understands skin, knows what to do to improve it, and provides a fantastic massage as part of the facial.
I cannot rave enough about Daiva and her knowledge about skincare. I went to her before my wedding for 3 months because I was having acne and scar issues that I didn't want for pictures. I couldn't believe that on my big day I had no blemishes, and my skin continues to look amazing with her advice and work.
I love Salon Roi! I stumbled upon this place about a year ago and have been going there ever since. I was sick of paying a ridiculous amount of $ at my other salon for sub-par service, so I went to Salon Roi on a whim and was immediately greeted by Blanca, who is fabulous. She really takes the time to listen to what you want (in my case, highlights) and doesn't rush through the process. She's super friendly and has been working there forever, so she's a pro. My hair always turns out great and she always throws in a bunch of free samples at the end of the appointment. I haven't had any spa services here but I'm actually booked for a facial next week so I will post a review after that.
My entire family has used Salon Roi for many years and have experienced nothing but the best service. We've had haircuts (Roi), perms (Blanca), highlights (Roi), manicures and pedicures (Marita) and messages (Zula and Annette) and we've been spoiled by the excellence and care they always provide. I've recommended friends who have also become regular customers and know out-of-towners who always go whenever they are in DC. The few problems we've had have always been dealt with quickly and reasonably. They recently celebrated their 40th Anniversary. That says a lot. Go, you will not be disappointed.
I have only gone to Salon Roi for eyebrow waxing and shaping. I am extremely picky with eyebrows and have gotten them done by many different beauticians and I can sincerely say that Daiva is one of the best in the DC area. The first time I went to her she spent 30 minutes shaping my eyebrow to perfection. She is very nice, listens to what you want, and gives very good recommendations. The cost was a little on the pricey side ($25) but it was worth it.
I have beeen to Salon Roi only once, when i used their steals and deals promotion for partial head highlights with blowdry for only $125 (how great).
I totally fell in love with their building since i love Marilyn Monroe, the receptionist was courteous and offered me a glass of water.
I had my hair done by MIKE and let me tell you i cannot wait to go back to him, hes one of the best hair colorist I've ever had, we were on the same track and hes funny to talk to , over all my experience was great and if your looking for a modern haircut and an some awesome highlights you should deff try to book and appointment with MIKE.
I'm looking forward to go back and try their other services.
This salon is has three levels and offers services ranging from hair to skincare to nails. I have been especially pleased with haircuts from Jennifer and Mikey. Daiva and Alicia are pros at waxing, especially brows and Brazilian.
