A Lounge Just For Hair
By Charlene Louis
Events, parties and celebrations are as traditional as christmas trees, menorahs, and champagne during the holidays… So is finding the perfect look for the season. The best way to create the perfect holiday look is to have the perfect holiday hair style. Whether is a great cut or the perfect coloring, having a fabulous hairstyle during the holidays can make any outfit look its best!
Hair Lounge Salon, located in upper Georgetown, is one of the best locations to create the perfect look for any celebration. Upon walking into hair lounge salon it is clear to see that professionalism and a personalized sense of care is very important. The salon’s clean lines and claming atmosphere will give any client the feeling of confidence before even sitting in a chair.
Owners Daniel Levy and Serkan Sut, and their many other trained colorists and stylists are skilled in making sure that every hairstyle reflects one’s inner beauty on the outside. Known for their coloring technique, it is clear that the basics are very important to them. Daniel Levy is very adamant that to have a great color, a stylist must know the basics and have a really good understanding of hair. In fact, Daniel is very particular about what he uses on any client’s hair. In fact he is a huge fan of Wella products, which add moisture with any coloring procedure. Being that Wella products are low in odor and do not give that “Burning effect” makes each coloring process enjoyable instead of risky and itchy. They also feel that experience is key.
Daniel Levy has spent the last 20 years doing hair and yet he still feels that he can learn more. Serkan himself has spent years in europe and all over dc styling hair. Though they are confident in their skills, they both continue to attend seminars and classes in order to always be in the know.
As our georgetowner hair model relaxed and enjoyed a most enjoyable scalp massage (actually she was having her hair washed, but it could have easily have been confused as one). I had a chance to sit with Daniel and Serkan to get an understanding on why great hair was so important to them. They explained to me that great hair is more than the latest style or trend. To have great hair, it all about maintenance and having the perfect look for you. “You may want hair like, [insert celebrity hair style you admire] but is that look really meant for you?” but don’t worry, you will still leave their salon feeling like a celebrity. They believe that is a person’s hair looks great, the person feels great. And when that person feels great, daniel and Serkan know they have done their job.
Getting one’s hair colored is one thing but it is never as traumatic as getting one’s hair cut. A color can be fixed but once a cut is made.. It’s made Hair Lounge Salon is one location that strives to make sure every cut is a perfect cut. Just like any artist, every stroke made with the sessoirs created beautiful undetectable layers and created body to even the thinnest hair. After meeting with daniel and serkan it was clear that hair was their passion and that they wish to make every styling experience a memorable one. In fact our own hair model vowed to return in order to experience the wonderful service she received! Having great hair does not require a personal style team, but it does require someone who cares about your hair.

To make clients more relaxed, some salons offer wine with a haircut. some are even shaking things up with martinis.
by Lynne Shallcross
When you leave a salon after a great haircut, you can feel on top of the world. but salons want you to feel that way from the moment you walk in – so some offer a glass of pinot grigio with your haircut or a back massage with your shampoo.
At the Hair Lounge Salon in Georgetown, clients are treated to a glass of wine with their cut. “I think the client deserves much more than water,” says owner Serkan Sut. Customers can choose among pinot grigio, chardonnay, and merlot. The salon goes through white wine faster, but sut says he notices a subtle divide: women getting haircuts opt for white; coloring clients choose red.
Does a glass of wine lead to a longer appointment? It can, Sut says. While a women’s haircut at some salons can take a half hour to 45 minutes, cuts at the hair lounge can last 45 minutes to an hour, and the salon gets busier after 4pm. “People come, get a glass of wine and a cut and color, and just relax.”
