Best Hair Salon
Bill Lawrence Salon
2120 18th St. NW #A, (202) 387-8310
I’ve had my share of hair-related frustrations in D.C, like the time I sought out a well-known Georgetown salon only to hear that they “can’t do [my] kind of hair.” It wasn’t the first time I’d been on the receiving end of such condemnation, which began when my mother decided she just didn’t want to bother with my amber waves of Don King poof. Since then I’ve been on an 18-year journey in and out of salon chairs. Thank goodness for the Bill Lawrence Salon. A concentration of ethnic hair care specialists serve the salon’s diverse and loyal clientele, most of whom are word-of-mouth referrals. For nuances in cut and color, see Bonita; Tyo’s a wizard with extensions; Marissa can take care of your natural needs; and Bill Lawrence himself still probably does the best blowout in the District.
