    Ethiopian Hair Salons

    Anyone been to an Ethiopian hair salon? If so, were you satisfied?

    I am going to try one of them here in the D.C. area. Two of my friends have gone and came back looking gorgeous as ever.

    So anyone?

    I will let you know for sure after going. But according to my friend, they do all kinds of hair...natural, texturized, relaxed etc. and all different lengths. Is that what you meant by styles?

    So today I had my hair done by an Eritrean girl out in "Little Ethiopia" (U Street) in DC. I had it washed, deep conditioned, trim, and blowout...and it looks great. I'll be going to here once every month or two as her salon is a bit pricey but I am very satisfied.

    What's the vote on the best Ethiopian restaurant in the DC area? Or at least which ones are worth trying?

    so what how much did your trip to the salon cost you? I am this weekend getting my hair in cornrows at Occular (a big weave salon in Clinton) because I'm having a big issue of what to do for my winter hair (weave or braids).

    Well, it cost me more because I got a blowout, but also deep condition and a trim...so $55.

    It must be a lot of Ethiopian Salons in the Falls Church area because my friend when to one at 3811-J S. George Mason in Falls Church. The name of the salon is MWM Unisex Salon. She got a wash, deep condition, trim and set and she said it was inexpensive.

    a blow out costs more? Shoot I thought that would be cheaper, but since you did get a deep condition and a trim that does add up. Did you happen to take a look at what products they used? Also what made it different than say a regular hair salon with Tomyeisha (yes I have seen that as a name, pronounced Tameisha )

    you know inexpensive in this area is like $35 , or $20 if you go into the pennysaver for a coupon.

    Oh, I meant the combination of everything cost more. Actually, it was wash, deep condition, blow dry, flat iron, and then trim. I meant to type blowdry...

    Tomyeisha's salon...lol. Only been to one of those once. They didnt wash properly, fried my hair and still didnt get it straight. Never ever went back. But actually, this stylist may be the only East African at the salon. My uncle is a part time stylist so I usually go to him. It's just that I'd rather give him the time for paying customers.

    This area can be quite pricey in truth, especially if the area has less competition. As St. Croix Mami said, I 've heard the Falls Church area has some good inexpensive places. But I'm happy with this girl for now..

    Ethiopian Hair Dressor

    I've been reading this forum for a long time now and taking tips from everything from relaxers to extensions and have had a good amount of success. But I've always been afraid of putting chemicals in my hair, at least myself. Here in Alexandria it cost alot of money to get it done.

    Ok, I called around and one of my friends in Fredericksburg told me she went to hair cuttery in near mary washington college where she takes classes. She told me to try Roman out. She's this ethiopian girl who works there. I never got this treatment before. I swear I will only go to her from now on. I don't want to go on and on, but I read alot about ethiopians and been to a few in DC, but this girl is worth the drive.
