Washington D.C. Hairstylist

Doing hair in Washington D.C. since 2007. Specializing in coloring and haircutting for all genders. Located in the heart of Dupont Circle.

Vanessa comes from an artistic background. A few painters in her father’s side of the family; and a hairstylist mother who owned two hair salons made the perfect environment for Vanessa’s hair artistry to grow throughout her upbringing.

She graduated from Paul Mitchell on 2007, and since, doing hair has been an amazing life experience for Vanessa. Not only focusing on what she likes the most, hair coloring and cutting, but also building strong and long lasting relationships. She believes doing hair is not only a way of art expression, but also of uplifting people’s emotions and self perception.

Vanessa specializes in hair color. A few of her favorite techniques are: highlighting, blonding, balayage, foliage, grey coverage, color melt and more. She also has years of experience with hair cutting and barbering. Beauty is in the details and she says a great haircut compliments the color!

I cannot begin to express my thanks and gratitude to Vanessa for the great result she achieved with my hair. I felt heard and understood. The professionalism, care, and consideration for my needs has been superb. I will be recommending her to every person I know looking for hair color in the future!

I have been a client of Vanessa’s for more than a decade and her talent with haircuts, color, and styling is exceptional. Vanessa has a keen eye for detail and truly knows what works best for her individual clients. No idea is ever too big or too bold for her to execute — and she really takes her time to walk through any questions or concerns. More than her talent in the salon, Vanessa has a heart of gold. I can guarantee you will not be disappointed with any service she offers!
