The Hair Shoppe is owned and operated by two sisters. Suki has been cutting my husband??s hair since 1978, and Kim has been cutting mine since 1979. I have very wavy hair, which can be difficult to cut, and have never had a bad haircut here (but I??ve had some terrible haircuts elsewhere!). And I??ve had various styles through the years, from shoulder-length to very short cropped. I work in Montgomery county now, and still come into DC to get my hair cut here ?? I would not consider going elsewhere, even though there are plenty of choices available. Very nice and experienced professional stylists, very reasonable prices, and a clean, pleasant shop. Parking is tough, but the location is close to the Farragut North Metro stop.

I have been going here for a little over a year. Kim has done a fantastic job every time. Great location and I love their flexibility when scheduling!

Kim has been cutting my hair since 1986. Would not dream of going anywhere else. They have kept their prices consistent and provide incredible service.

The majority of reviews on this page say it all. I don't feel that I need to or could add any more positive remarks. I do, however, find it pretty disconcerting that some have written very bad reviews. I've been to The Hair Shop several times and have never experienced anything like what is described in the reviews by "AC" and "Anonymous." I got a great hair cut for a great price. Service was great and the two women were very friendly and made me feel very comfortable. Much better than places like Hair Cuttery. Please don't listen to someone who obviously just has a bad attitude. They will always find something to complain about. Not a fair review!

The Hair Shop provides a great hair cut for a reasonable price The two sisters, Kim and Suki, who cut and style hair are very hospitable and the classical music in the background makes the whole experience relaxing. I often stop by to get my hair cut during my bicycle commute to work, and the Hair Shop has no problem with me leaving my bike in their back room. Kim and Suki mentioned that they get a lot of business from internet reviews, which you can see are overwhelming positive. They were, however, distressed that a few unjustified and unfair reviews may hurt their reputation. In response to the few critical reviewers, one positive reviewer already wrote, ??Disregard the few bad posts. They are isolated crazies.? I don??t know whether the negative reviews were crazy, just having a bad day, or had some unusual experience. But I would, however, stress that Hair Shop customers overwhelming have a terrific experience and an even better hair cut. I suggest you give them a try.

Very friendly atmosphere. Great hair cut for a reasonable price ($25). I recently moved to the area and was looking for a regular place for a hair cut. I usually prefer a barber shop but they did a good job without me feeling like I was in a "Salon". Disregard the few bad posts. They are isolated crazies.

I searched well over a year for a place in DC that gives consistently great men's haircuts for a reasonable price. After finding Suki at the Hair Shop, I have never gone elsewhere in the District. I was recently out of the country for two years, and when I walked back into the Hair Shop, they remembered my name and seemed genuinely happy to see me. You don't get that kind of friendly personalized service at a salon!

What a crazy place! The first questions she asked after starting to cut my hair was "Do you go to church?" I tried to deflect it by saying yes. She responded, "Where?" My cover was blown. She knew I was an atheist. The reminder of the haircut was spent listening to her tell me I was going to hell, etc.

If she hadn't already taken a good chuck of hair out of my head, I would have gotten up and left.

The haircut was mediocre at best. I will never go back.

Since I moved to the area a few months ago I've been looking for a place to get my hair cut where the stylist pay attention to detail, offer helpful suggestions and doesn't cost $50+. I accidentally stumbled upon the Hair Shoppe and Suki and Kim have found a loyal customer. They were very helpful and knowledgeable about my hair type and I have to honestly say I got the best haircut of my life for $30.

I've had people ask me where I go for my hair cuts and I'll be sure to tell them all about The Hair Shoppe.

I started going to The Hair Shop when it was on M Street way back in 1993, and more than 10 years later, I always find myself coming back to Kim for my cuts. She listens to my needs, always can fit me in and doesn't charge an arm-and-a-leg. I'm a woman with medium-long, thick hair, and I have never been disappointed. Suki, her sister, is also very pleasant. I have paid up to three times as much in salons all over Metro DC, including Georgetown, Bethesda and Chevy Chase with results ranging from good to very mediocre. Designer salons cannot touch the consistency, price or service I find with Kim at The Hair Shop. Only wish they did color now that I'm starting to see a few grays!

PROS: friendly, efficient, clean, decades of expertise, affordable
CONS: limited to no haircoloring service

I've never been treated so rudely by any professional service. I was new in town, looking for a basic haircut like I had been getting in various cities for years. Suki questioned my hairstyle, didn't want to listen to my requests, insisted that I "be quiet" and listen to her because she knew better about hair than I did. It was late in the day, and I figured she just wanted to get out of there. But, regardless, I was really shocked. It was a far cry from the kind of warm service hairstylists are usually known for. It was a pretty simple haircut that usually takes 10-15 minutes to do, but it turned into a half hour, back and forth ordeal, complete with lectures on how to behave when sitting in a styling chair. I haven't heard that lecture since I was 5 years old.

PROS: none
CONS: complete lack of professionalism

Kim and Suki are two lovely women who care about their customers and are meticulous in their work. I have curly hair and have been going to Kim for more than 20 years -- and I have always been completely pleased with the results. Call ahead for an appointment, however, because they often get booked up.

PROS: Careful attention to what clients want

The Hair Shop has two stylists, Suki and Kim. Suki handles the men and Kim handles the women. Suki has been cutting my hair for over 25 years. In all that time, she has never given me a bad haircut. She is very good about doing exactly what you ask her to do -- short cuts in summer, longer cuts in winter, etc. I know many men who have been going to Suki longer than me. Prices are very reasonable. Parking can be a problem -- difficult to find meters or high price pay lots.

PROS: Conistent Hair Cuts, Reasonable Prices
CONS: Parking
