Changing hairdressers is a bit like changing boyfriends — it can be difficult, stressful, and while you're between loves, you tend to look a little bedraggled. But all that hardship isn't a good reason to stick with the same salon (or the same guy) if it's just not working — it might be time to start fresh, and lucky for you, a new hair oasis just opened in Georgetown.
Luigi Parasmo — a direct-from-Rome stylist who has worked backstage at Tory Burch, Valentino, and Versace — opened his namesake salon earlier this month, and the airy, exposed-brick space feels like a welcome respite from the bustle of Wisconsin Avenue. The salon offers a full menu of treatments, from basic cuts and color to texturizing, nail care, and bridal beauty services. So, if you're looking for greener pastures (or prettier tresses, as it were), we suggest stopping in and seeing if your new main squeeze could be of the extra-handsome Italian variety.
Where: 1510 Wisconsin Avenue NW; 202-333-2244.
