i went into split endz this past weekend for a keratin express treatment. i have very thick, coarse and dry hair that is partly wavy. during the summer months i really can't do anything with my hair because of the humidity so when i heard about the keratin treatment, i needed to try it because it claimed to eliminate frizz and cut down on styling time. there is the longer lasting brazilian blowout and the shorter term keratin express which i did because i wanted to try it out first to see if it worked. i got the treatment done on saturday. i was told not to wash my hair for 24 hours. on sunday evening, i washed my hair with sulfate-free shampoo and was glad to find that my hair was easier to blow dry and took less than five minutes to straighten. what really surprised me was the texture of the hair. it didn't feel thick and difficult to handle while styling. The true test came today. it went up to 96 degrees here today (felt more like 100 due to the humidity). i went out to walk the dog and when i came back in i was happy to find that my hair hadn't gone into the crazy POOF mode it usually does after 2 minutes in humid climes. although i was sweating, my hair still maintained its shape with virtually no frizz, no poof and without the undesirable thickness which would normally make my hair look lucy from the peanuts comics. i'm totally going to go for the longer term brazilian next time around. Also, the salon was really surprising. this was my first time going to split endz. it is located at the end of what appears to be a very small strip mall. from the outside, it looks rather drab, but i had no idea the inside would be so fabulous. the interior is designed so that you feel like you're at a beach and it made me feel very cool and relaxed. The salon is clean and comfortable (as well as their bathroom - very nice!). the salon also has several rooms in the back for other services (i'm assuming skin care, nails, etc.) which looked very clean and comfortable. all around nice salon and i'm glad i found it. yea! The lady who did my hair (ach! i can't remember her name. i know it starts with a J though) was so knowledgeable and patient when it came to explaining how the treatment worked and the differences between the brazilian and the keratin express. i felt more comfortable with the whole process - thank you!

I receive a gift certificate for a therapeutic massage from a good friend as a birthday gift. I had never had a professional therapeutic massage and needless to say, I was a little nervous at first. I had Arthroscopic Surgery on my left knee a number years ago. After physical therapy, my knee still never felt completely healed, and I had a tendency to favor it, trying not to re-injure the knee. Maritta took the time to explain the process of Therapeutic Massage and Deep Tissue Massage along with their health benefits. She also informed me that by favoring my left knee, I had altered my posture and the muscles in my back and legs were strained for compensating for so long. By the time we were half way through the procedure, I was so relaxed that I fell asleep on the table. I awoke feeling great! My legs, back and knees never felt better! I highly recommend All About You Therapeutic Massage.
I have been seeing Maritta every week for over two years and she is indeed an exceptional massage therapist. Her knowledge is superb. I started seeing her after surgery and physical therapists told me that they'd never be able to get the knots out of my shoulders and back and told me i needed a massage therapist. Luckily i fould Maritta. For me, she does a blend of sports and deep tissue massage since i am a marathon runner who gets tons of knots in my shoulders and really tight hips and IT band tightness too. She makes a wold of difference after a long run or after a week behind a computer too. She knows lots about many stretches that are beneficial to the body and complementary to physical regimes too. I highly higly recommend All About You!
As prescribed by my pain management doctor, I get a massage every three weeks to relieve Fibromyalgia symptoms. Maritta is the 5th therapist who has worked on me. She is far and away the best I've ever had. I have been seeing her for about four years and I always look forward to our sessions. She knows intuitively what needs work. She is always professional and in a positive frame of mind. Just being in her presence makes me feel good. Maritta will offer advice if asked but she does not chatter during the session. Rather, she takes her cues from my behavior. If I want to be quiet she is quiet. If I want to talk, we have amiable conversations. Maritta is a talented and compassionate therapist. I highly recommend her.
One day looked in the mirror and saw a stranger looking back. Felt 30 and looked every minute of my 45 years... To be honest, I'm a major wuss and the thought of surgery scared the bejeezus out of me. My friend had filler done at Medalase and she turned out awesome... Doctor Ginnan did my liquid facelift. And I look damn fine, if I do say so myself. And so does all my friends and family. Highly recommend them. They do lipo too, but the doc said I should exercise and diet first.. If I still have my saddle bags, then he said he'd do the fat vacuum. Have to say that further impressed me. He could have easily gone straight to my pocket book, instead of recommending something he won't be making money on as first line of defense.
Salon Diva & Spa located in Jermantown Square of city Fairfax is providing the best hair color and hair care services in the town. I tried their hair cut and shampoo and it was amazing. Highlights are good too. If you are looking for a complete new look then this is the must check out place. If you have not visited this salon, you are missing out. On my last visit I had a cut by a new stylist. I had to guide her a lot regarding the cuts i wanted to have. It was a bit exhausting visit. Next time, i would prefer to have a hair cut from a staff member who is familiar with my styling sense. For now, they deserve four stars.
I cannot forget my first visit to this salon. I was waiting for a friend of mine in the next-door tanning salon. I saw a new place next door and went inside. I could not resist myself to get hair cut. Lizet has incredible talent. She is the best hairstylist I have met. She introduced me to a new technique of facial hair removal and shaping eyebrow. You have to visit to believe the process is so fast and less painful than waxing. I was amazed to see the shape of my eyebrow. I will highly recommend this salon those who care for good service. Pam
I tried this salon for my hair services and ended up trying eyebrow threading. I must say it is an amazing experience. I came across threading through a friend of mine from Pakistan and she introduced me to some place inside a mall. I tried it and was in pain and decided not to go for it in future. With reluctance I tried threading at Appearances and pain was less than waxing and the shape was near to perfect arch. I would recommend trying threading in an established salon rather than in a mall or someones house in an unhygienic conditions.
Being a military spouse, I rely on word of mouth information. I was at a function recently and I met a girl with great highlights. She passed on the salon info to me. First impression: Loved the Decor!!!! With the beach theme I almost forgot how cold it was outside! I got a great haircut/highlight for a very resonable price...that is unheard of here in DC! The service was fantastic, the price was right, and I felt like the stylist really care about their clients. Thanks to the ladies at Split Endz, I look fabulous!!!
While in town visiting a friend, I visited the salon with her to also get my haircut. While there the stylist I had was awesome. Helped me find a new style and also put in some great highlights. It will definitely be hard to find the same quality here at home. Did not try any spa treatments, but noticed some happy customers so I would feel comfortable suggesting this salon for anyone looking to get a cut, color or some spa treatments.
