DC MODERN LUXURY MAY 2016
Hair lounge salon was featured in the may issue of dc modern luxury magazine and a top place to shop for a service in the district. Salon owner and reknown stylist daniel levy uses a special blondplex formula to create custom gorgeous looks for all his customers.
DC MODERN LUXURY JUNE 2016
Hair lounge salon was honored to accept dc modern luxury's best salon for blondes award in their june 2016 issue. Owner daniel levy proudly coined the term upper northwest blonde and is known for creating the perfect blonde highlights using a customized formula for each of his clients. To get the perfect shade of dc blonde, book an appointment at hair lounge salon.
We loathe anything that screams “dye job”. Fortunately, salon owner sut does, too. He assessed our winter-drab brown hair and recommended a single-process chestnut to color preserve the lingering hint of auburn. We’d barely nodded our approval before we began mixing up a hue that he swiftly applied from our roots to our end. In just 20 minutes, our impossibly soft and newly radiant hair screamed “gorgeous”. $85 and up.
Hair lounge is so honored to have been able to assist the wives of our nation’s military on friday march 22nd. We partnered up with luke’s wings organization and treated 4 women to a makeover and hair styling, while our friend lizzeth gutierrez provided their makeup. Take 5 boutique, who brings europe’s high fashion to bethesda so graciously styled the women for the evening and gifted them their outfit selections! This truly was a special evening and such an honor.
Great hair seems to come effortlessly to the stylists at hair lounge. Their styles are modern and polished, and leave you poised for a perfect stroll down the aisle. Consult with them early to decide on your ideal ‘do’.
THE GEORGETOWN CURRENT
We start with the initial consultation, but we continue the process, levy said. We have our coloring technique, and after each coloring we give a treatment to ensure that the hair is shiny and soft. We take each step seriously. Services include traditional cuts, blow-drying and straightening techniques, as well as a variety of color treatments.
THE CLOVER PARK GAZETTE
Stylishly designed with contemporary lighting and furniture, the hair lounge at 2201 wisconsin avenue, 202-337-0951, next to the world of winds, opened almost two months ago. Judging from the well-attended grand opening on january 11, the salon already has a loyal following. Their specialty is hair color, but all the services are offered.
THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER
Our very own daniel levy weighs in on simple, romantic hair styles for the inaugural looks.
When talking about realities of inaugural hair, hair lounge salon’s daniel levy makes a valid point. “the stars have 20 hairdressers, they have a full staff with them, and you don’t,” he told yeas & nays. “don’t try to do something that’s too complicated, don’t go somewhere and have 20 different thousand curls on your hair, keep it as simple as possible and make it all about the dress and have beautiful makeup,” levy, who co-owns the georgetown salon, suggested.

The services of daniel levy are quite a gem.
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 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.
DOCS 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

"NEW LIFE, NEW ME"
TO GO WITH HER MOVE FROM THE SUBURBS TO CAPITOL HILL, ONE WOMAN GOT A FRESHER, WARMER STYLE
Christine klein, 47, capital hill, meeting managing director, american institute of architects
WHY SHE WANTED A MAKEOVER: HAVING RECENTLY MOVED FROM AN ARLINGTON CONDO TO A CAPITOL HILL ROWHOUSE, KLEIN WAS INSPIRED: "NEW HOME, NEW LIFE I WANTED A NEW ME."
WHERE WE SENT HER: GEORGETOWN'S HAIR LOUNGE SALON FOR HAIR, INDEPENDENT MAKEUP ARTIST KIM REYES, AND HU'S WEAR FOR CLOTHING.
THERE ARE BEAUTY ACCIDENTS, AND THEN THERE'S SINGEING OFF YOUR BANGS. IN HONG KONG FOR A BUSINESS TRIP. CHRISTINE KLEIN THOUGHT NOTHING OF PLUGGING HER AMERICAN CURLING IRON INTO AN ADAPTER AND SETTING ABOUT HER MORNING ROUTINE.
"I WRAPPED MY HAIR AROUND THE IRON AND POOF! SMOKE BURST OUT, AND MY HAIR FRIED." LATE FOR A MEETING, SHE PANICKED. “I HAD TO CUT PIXIC BANGS."
KLEIN'S HAIR--THIN, FRAGILE, AND PRONE TO UNCONTROLLABLE FRIZZ IF CUT TOO SHORT-HAS ALWAYS BEEN PROBLEMATIC. TO ENSURE A MANAGEABLE SHAPE, HAIR LOUNGE CO-OWNER DANIEL LEVY TOOK A MERE INCH OFF THE LENGTH AND KEPT THE LAYERS LONG.
TO ADD DIMENSION WITH COLOR, HE APPLIED A BASE OF WARM CHESTNUT AND CARAMEL HIGHLIGHTS USING BALAYAGE, A PROCESS IN WHICH DOZENS OF TINY HIGHLIGHTS ARE SWEPT THROUGH THE HAIR. WHILE TRADITIONAL TOP-FOIL HIGHLIGHTS CAN LOOK ARTIFICIAL AND OBVIOUS, LEVY SAYS, BALAYAGE RESULTS IN A SUBTLE, NATURAL SHIMMER THAT CAN LAST MONTHS.
YEARS OF TRIATHLON TRAINING HAVE GIVEN KLEIN A PERMANENT POST-EXERCISE GLOW. MAKEUP ARTIST KIM REYES RECOMMENDED, FOR MINOR TOUCHUPS, KEROMASK CONCEALER AND CAMOUFLAGE CREAM-A FAVORITE OF FILM AND TV STARS BECAUSE OF ITS HEAVILY PIGMENTED YET THIN SPREADING FORMULA. SHE APPLIED WARM BROWN SHADOWS ON KLEIN'S OUTER LIDS TO MAKE HER EYES APPEAR FARTHER APART, AND SHE SMUDGED CHARCOAL LINER ALONG THE LASH LINE TO MAKE KLEIN'S BLUISH-GREEN EYES POP.
THOUGH KLEIN IS NO STRANGER TO DRESSING UP, MARLENE HU, OWNER OF THE GEORGETOWN BOUTIQUE HU'S WEAR, SUGGESTED SOPHISTICATED PIECES THAT WOULD ACCENTUATE KLEIN'S LEAN PHYSIQUE. AN ISABEL MARANT GRAY WOOL SKIRT ($185) AND COSTUME NATIONAL OVER-THE-KNEE BLACK SUEDE BOOTS ($1,240) HIGHLIGHTED KLEIN'S LONG, TONED LIMBS; THESE WERE TOPPED WITH A BARBARA BUI WOOL BIKER JACKET (52,450) AND LANVIN CHAINLINK NECKLACE ($1,740).
"I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED FASHION AND AM SOMETHING OF A CLOTHES HORSE," KLEIN SAYS, "BUT IT WAS NICE TO TALK TO HU ABOUT WHAT WOULD WORK ON MY BODY TYPE."
KLEIN TEST-DROVE HER NEW LOOK AT DINNER AND A CONCERT THAT NIGHT: "THE HAIR COLOR WARMS ME UP, AND THE MAKEUP HIGHLIGHTS MY BEST FEATURES. I LOVE MY NEW LOOK."

Simple, Romantic Hair In Style For The Inaugural
WHEN TALKING ABOUT REALITIES OF INAUGURAL HAIR, HAIR LOUNGE SALON'S DANIEL LEVY MAKES A VALID POINT. "THE STARS HAVE 20 HAIRDRESSERS, THEY HAVE A FULL STAFF WITH THEM, AND YOU DON'T," HE TOLD YEAS & NAYS. “DON'T TRY TO DO SOMETHING THAT'S TOO COMPLICATED, DON'T GO SOMEWHERE AND HAVE 20 DIFFERENT THOUSAND CURLS ON YOUR HAIR, KEEP IT AS SIMPLE AS POSSIBLE AND MAKE IT ALL ABOUT THE DRESS AND HAVE BEAUTIFUL MAKEUP," LEVY, WHO CO-OWNS THE GEORGETOWN SALON, SUGGESTED.
WHEN IT COMES TO LOOKS THAT ARE PARTICULARLY IN STYLE, LEVY SUGGESTED THE MORE ROMANTIC LOOK. "WHERE IT'S TUSSLED IN THE BACK AND IT'S KIND OF LOOSE," HE SAID. HE ALSO SAID WOMEN SHOULDN'T BE AFRAID TO JAZZ UP THEIR LOOK WITH ACCESSORIES, WHICH ALSO SERVE A PURPOSE. "THERE'S SO MANY BEAUTIFUL HAIR ACCESSORIES THAT YOU CAN ADD TO THE UPDO AND ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS KIND OF GO IN AND TIGHTEN THE CLIP AND THAT USUALLY SAVES THE UPDO."
AS FAR AS WHAT TO PACK IN A PURSE, LEVY MADE THAT SIMPLE TOO. "BOBBY PINS AND SPRAY, THAT'S ALL YOU NEED," HE SAID. "YOU DON'T NEED ANYTHING ELSE."

Who's giving: hair lounge salon and wella international, a salon products business
Who's receiving: georgetown university lombardi patient's assistance fund
What's being given: $1,000
Background: a small evening event feb. 4 at the hair lounge salon in upper georgetown kicked off the salon's three-month fundraiser for the lombardi patient's assistance fund. That night's raffle of wella hair products and a complementary haircut garnered almost $1,000 to seed the fund. Additional contributions will be generated from a percentage of the salon's services and sales through april, and the salon will also be collecting head scarves. The lombardi assistance fund is designed to help the hospital's cancer patients financially as they go through treatments by aiding in transportation to and from treatments, rent, mortgage and utility payments, child care and medications.
A FEW WORDS FROM THE SPONSOR: "WE ARE DELIGHTED TO HAVE FOUND SUCH AN IMPORTANT CHARITY WITH WHICH TO PARTNER," SAY DANIEL LEVY AND SERKAN SUT, CO-OWNERS OF THE HAIR LOUNGE SALON. "THE TYPE OF SUPPORT THE LOMBARDI PATIENT'S ASSISTANCE OFFERS HELPS CANCER PATIENTS RETAIN THEIR DIGNITY DURING VERY STRESSFUL TIMES IN THEIR LIVES."

Daniel levy noticed that clients at his glover park hair salon, hair lounge, were stretching their appointments from four weeks to five weeks as the economy began to sour. So this month, he launched a promotion called blondes on a budget that gives loyal customers discounts for their regular visits.
“it's important for people to look good, especially in hard times like today,” levy said. “let's boost the economy back up.
