How would you rate Salon Revive?
Excellent! Hiwot is my stylist and she is great. Cut and color to perfection and I always leave looking vibrant and refreshed. It's exactly what you would hope for from a salon
This place was absolutely horrible. I went there and told the woman exactly what I wanted! She told me in order to get that haircut i wanted i would have to get a relaxer. I've never heard this before. At that point i shouldve left but I didn't. She convinced me to get a hot oil treatment and that turned out to be a pointless thing. All this woman did was flart iron my hair and she didn't even style it. She knew i hated it, and asked me what I was thinking. I told her I didn't like my hair and she blamed my hair texture!! like really? I ended up paying 105 for her services, and felt like I was completely ripped off
Go with hiwot, the owner, or doug. Haven't tried anyone else bc these two are great.
My sister suggested that I try Salon Revive after she had a good experience at the salon. I made an appointment with Hewot and enjoyed a relaxing hour with great service. I was immediately greeted at the door, had a short hair consultation about the state of my hair and my needs and then I enjoyed a wash, steam treatment and style. I have been back several times since then and I live in Pittsburgh! They are skilled at working with natural hair and styling in its natural state or providing a straight look.
Excellent salon, they've always known what to do with my natural hair. Also, always on time, and reasonably priced.
Do I recommend Salon Revive? Yes.
I am a long time customer of Salon Revive. I have been getting my hair done here since December 2010, after deciding to grow out my relaxer and go natural. I have been through a few stylists (two of which who are no longer at the salon) but I have happily settled with Hiwot! She (and Yodit) are amazing! I go to see Hiwot most of the time and I adore her. Most of the time I take care of my hair myself, but there are two things I will not do at home - cut or color my hair. Hiwot takes care of my hair and adheres to my requests. If I ask for a trim, I get a trim - not a cut, layers, or bangs. I have suffered NO heat damage. My color is always vibrant and my curl pattern is not changed. Hiwot's not a super chatty stylist who gets all in your business. The salon's environment is quiet, peaceful, and not overburdened with street vendors, gossip, or drama. I think the prices are reasonable and they accept cash or debit/credit cards. You cannot leave a tip on your card, however. You can request an appointment online or you can call. The receptionists are always polite. The location is very accessible via metro (U St, 10th St exit, walk about 2 blocks). Not sure about parking, but it's DC. Overall, my experiences here have been great! I would recommend this place in a heartbeat.
I bought a Groupon for Salon Revive and I couldn't be happier. Heron gave me a fantastic cut and color.
I thought the salon was nice and the ladies that work there were all lovely. I'll be going back for sure.
Yodit is amazing, she is the only one i let cut my hair in DC! Prices are great and they can always fit me in (somehow).
I took a chance and went to Salon Revive solely based off of the reviews. I'm glad to say I was happy with the results and the overall experience. Galya did a great job and was very knowledgeable.
Yodit got it goin' on! She's patient, extremely knowledgeable about natural curls and is very quick. I'm very particular about my hair and I feel like I've found the right salon and the right stylist to address my needs. Yodit listens very closely and goes out of her way to make you feel at ease. Her honesty about expectations is truly appreciated and a true skill. I have all the respect for her. My hair is healthy because of her guidance and expertise. Thank you, Yodit and thank you Salon Revive!
Excellent service! I have been going to Salon Revive for years and never leave disappointed. I always walk out of Salon Revive feeling like I got exactly what I wanted. Whether it be a hair cut, color, or just shampoo/condition, it is always top notch service. I specifically go to Yodit. She has been my stylist guru for many, many years. I completely trust her with my hair. She always gives me an honest assessment of my hair and what it actually can do. My hair is healthy and happy thanks to her.
Great service! Kim is amazing, she's done my hair going on 4 years and I have never left disappointed. Her blowouts will blow your mind, sometimes I can't believe it's my hair. Everyone is really friendly and parking is easy which is great for DC. I highly recommend anyone with natural hair to come here!!
I got a blowout and it was not to my liking. It's day two and my hair has already started to puff out which has never happened in the past. While I will never get another blowout from this salon I do like the way they run their business. I was checked in and given a tour of the salon. The shampoo assistant was very nice. They seem to push products a lot which I'm still on the fence about but I'm going to give it another chance and update once I go back.
Yodit, Hiwot, Lily ... everyone here is awesome! - you can't go wrong here if you have... hair. Natural kinky hair is why I go and refer people mostly but they do it ALL and they do it WELL! Color, natural, kinky, straight, curly, multi-textured...bring it to them for real. My favorite thing is that the salon is lovely, clean, fun, relaxed and they teach you how to do your own hair so your not a slave to them - you're just loyal to them.
I see Heran and she's amazing. She does my color and gets it perfect every time. Most of the other stylists are very good as well.
The best salon in the area! I've been going to this salon for years and the stylists are amazing! They provided the best care and tips for my natural hair.
I definitely recommend.
I spent two days at the salon. Revive is an appropriate name. I was revived. The staff is highly trained and skilled. Everyone was friendly and made me feel comfortable. The owner has definitely created an environment of professionalism. The shop is kept immaculately clean. All products for sale are artfully displayed with easy access by the clientele. No gossip typical of many salons.There is an air of positivity. And whatever aromatics they use are delightful. My stylist Lily is very talented. At nearly 70I feel 20 years younger....which makes me step lightly. All staff are extremely attractive and have beautiful hair. And they are well dressed and groomed. Trendy clothes. Really inspirational.
So welcoming. Everyone works as a team. If you are an entrepreneur just starting out go by for a do and check out this well run enterprise.
Beautiful place, very accommodating with wonderful hospitality and skilled technicians. Also extremely pricey!
I have been going to Salon Revive since I moved to the DC area approximately a year and a half ago. I love the clean and pleasant atmosphere, and the professionalism that all of the stylists possess, and the overall positive vibe. I have only seen Lily for my hair, but I have seen the work of other stylists at the salon and they are equally impressive. Lily takes the time to educate you about your hair, including tips for achieving a healthy maintenance routine in between visits. I have also had my hair colored twice, and in both instances I was very satisfied with the results. I highly recommend this salon for naturals, whether you prefer to wear your hair curly or straightened.
I am someone who hates going to the salon because I have had too many bad experiences with unprofessional or unclean environments. I am excited to share with you that I had a great experience here! The prices are reasonable and everyone is incredibly friendly and professional. My appointment was on time (I actually showed up 15 minutes early and they were able to start me a bit early) and Lily my stylist was superb! I have natural hair and came in for a wash and trim. Lily knew exactly how to work with my hair and I walked out with a great wash 'n go style.
Fabulous service with friendly knowledgeable staff that will tell you how to achieve a healthy scalp and hair.
Stress-free salon experience.
Most of my visits have been same day appointments when my hair needed some immediate TCL. The staff are warm and friendly.
They serve a selection of beverages (coffee, tea, water) while you wait. The salon exclusively uses Aveda products which feel and smell amazing. The deep conditioning treatment is an upsell, but worth the cost. It's a pleasant treat for damaged or thirsty tresses.
I recommend this salon for naturalistas and those with chemical treated hair alike. My visits never last longer than 90-120 minutes.
Located in a busy part of Shaw off U Street/ Florida Ave so plan to hunt for parking or take Lyft or Uber and save yourself the hassle.
I've gone here many times and this is the one place in DC that I trust with my natural hair. The stylist really know what they are doing. They have great service, take good care of your hair, use quality products and leave you feeling beautiful! It's pricy but I highly recommend!
Yodit was absolutely amazing! Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. I'm very happy with my hair and will be returning.
I love this hair salon, mainly because they are wonderful with my natural Black hair, but they service all different hair-types and styles with phenomenal care. They offer complementary beverages while you wait for your appointment. My stylist is Heran, and she may not know it yet but she’s stuck with me for life :) Overall, completely satisfied with my experience. Be prepared to pay high-end prices for top-notch hair treatment and services!
Yodit is a beast - highlights, flat iron, hair care, wedding hairdo!
This place is literally the best natural hair salon I've ever been to and worth every penny spent. They can service African American hair and Caucasian hair. They take their time, the service is amazing, and they make you feel and look beautiful by the time you leave. You won't regret it here. Nobody's hair is too thick or too thin, too short or too long they can work with it all. They definitely have a returning customer out of me.
Outstanding service, just pricey
Hands down the best natural hair care salon in DC. I’ve been a client since 2013 when I moved to DC. I would recommend this salon to any person for any hair care need as both their clientele and staff are diverse. You don’t have to spend all day here-but you can if you want! I see Gayla and I love her. They offer coffee/tea/water while you wait. Available products for sale are great. I will be sad to leave this salon behind if I ever leave DC.
My appointment was at 7am. No one was there to open the door and I stood out in the cold. The shampoo girl arrived late and I waited for her to open the salon. My stylist was not there to greet me. Yodit is popular but arrogant. Be vocal about what you want. She gives everyone the same cut
It's OK. The stylist talked with me about my daughters hair and basically just reiterated what I already knew. Would I visit again: probably until I secure a stylist that does natural hair only in their shops. When that is found then I'll know that every need will be met for my daughters natural hair care needs. All in all the shop was clean, quiet (not a lot of chatter and no peddling of socks, etc. like in other shops I've visited), well maintained, I think I met the owner who discussed products to use for bringing out natural curls. My baby is 11 so She's not quiet there yet. But if you are in the area, try them out because their customer service is great!!!
Best salon I've been too and worth every penny. ANYONE can come here, no matter your hair type. They work MAGIC honey.
I was just visiting D.C. and messaged them for an appointment. They called me back Sunday morning and got me in! I live in NYC but I'm going to make this my new spot. Great to transition to natural hair...and very welcoming staff.
Went in for a wash, trim, blowdry, and flatiron. My stylist didn't want to flat iron my hair because I work out often and she didn't want to "apply too much heat and have it be sweated out" despite me informing her that I was getting my hair done for the holiday (Easter). She offered a blow-out instead and I agreed. The "blow-out" was just blow-dried hair that I could have done myself. I paid 80 and still tipped and went home and straightened my hair myself only to discover that she hadn't even trimmed my hair evenly. Never going back here again.
This is a very relaxing salon. The stylists and staff are very attentive, professional and approachable. It's an oasis!
Love Yodit! She's so knowledgeable about hair. I always leave there feeling like a million bucks! And the customer service overall is impeccable!
I made a same-day appointment that had an awesome experience. I was greeted as soon as I walked in the door and offered a seat.
Asmarech, my hair stylist came over asked me what I was interested in doing. I was washed and cut immediately. I was offered water, tea or coffee. She educated me on the products that you use and what my expectations should be. I've already made my appointment to come back in two weeks I want to change my color
I LOVE THIS PLACE! I have been going for approximately three months and have never had a bad experience. Customer service is exceptional and every stylist and assistant looks after you. Asmi is wonderful and has become my sister. I love our partnership: my hair is her hair!
I recently received the worst haircut for 120 dollars. I arrived early for the consultation, which one should use to evaluate their own abilities and I allowed her to cut my hair off. It was the worse haircut and she didn’t realize she was incapable until my hair was an inch long. They are very sweet women but the product they use and their abilities to work with all hair is questionable.
I have been coming to salon revive for the past few years and my hair is the longest it has ever been. These ladies know how to do natural hair in any style you want! I also really love the deep steamers they have for added moisture and softness!!
Amazing salon! Lilly is great! She spent time not only caring for my hair but also teaching tips for between visits. I definitely recommend for anyone with natural hair or thinking of transitioning.
I was very I'll for several years, I cut off my long hair during the most difficult years of my illness. Now I am regrowing my hair under the care of Asmeah. She's convinced me to retain my natural hair. Thus it's been a year of trouble free work. I realize I will need another year to regain true length. However, this has been a wonderful stress free experience thus far and I am forever grateful...
They do an excellent job Customer service is superb. 3 stars because the prizes have gotten toooo expensive. I have found someone else that provides the same hair services for a cheaper price.
I had the pleasure of attending this salon while I was on holiday in DC from London. I desperately needed to have my hair colour matched with my extensions. Yodit was my stylist. Her professionalism and her advice and technique in colour was impeccable. The service was very professional and friendly in a very relaxing environment. It was an enjoyable experience with the perfect result was after. Thank you for looking after a Londoner in DC !
I had a great experience with my stylist, Lilly! She was very friendly and knowledgeable about the color. I went from Red to Brown. With color and steam treatment, the price neared $300 because of how much hair I have. They do great work and have great service. Great vibes. I just hope the color doesn’t fade too much in the future.
Yodit is an outstanding colorist! She is personable and delivers personalized service to each and every client. When you walk out her salon you look and feel like a new person.
Whether I choose straight or curly (natural hair), I leave with the best cut and styling I've ever had. Thanks, Asmi!
Had an appointment with Galya. She asked if this was my first time at the salon and it was. She asked me questions about my normal hair routine and products I use to get some background. She checked out my hair and explained what she was going to do based on my goal for coming. She went over the price so I wouldn't be shocked and can decide if I want to stay.
She shampooed me and educated me as she massaged my hair. She gave me a great scrubbing massage and detangled my hair as she conditioned. She then blow dryed me, trimmed my end and gave me a silk press and curl. My hair looks great and feels amazing. I will definitely go back since booked my appointment already. Every one who was there was nice and knowledgeable.
Yodit, my stylist, is a skilled colorist and an expert with curly hair textures. My hair is curly slightly kinky curly. The shop is highly professional, with a spa feel. I was able to purchase all products used on my hair including the detangling brush. I highly recommend this salon for all hair textures, the stylists in this shop do it all.
My hair was really damaged before I came to this salon: frail edges, missing patches of hair, brittle ends, etc. 3 months later my hair has grown, is perfectly healthy and is so much fuller. Lily is a godsend. Just don’t be “lazy” and she can get your hair to where it needs to be!
Lovely shop! Professional, detail oriented and extremely knowledgeable in healthy hair care. I was visiting the city and wanted a new door! Excellent selection and I'm picky with beauticians when it comes to finding a professional and skilled one. They are patient and kind and know what they are doing. They take their time and your appointment time is your time. I have naturally curly 4a/4b hair and it was no problem for those looking for a shop that can cater to this texture or similar. Thank you Asmi, you are very sweet and skilled.
Really great place for African American women with natural hair. They are careful and gentle with your hair to avoid breakage. They are a little pricey but it’s worth it. Most hairstylist only know how to do weave hairstyles so it’s nice to know some people want to do real hair for a change. I always get great service when I come here and will continue to come.
The only place I go to have my 4c, very thick hair taken care of! The deep condition/natural curl treatment is amazing, and Heran is a wonderful stylist. Looking forward to getting my hair done again soon.
I came in as a new customer with worries about the way my previous Dominican stylist (of 6 years) was managing my hair. Not only did Gayla immediately recognize the issue, she walked me through the process on how she would get things back on track and proceeded to wash, condition, and style my hair with care. Although a little pricy compared to what I used to pay, I will be returning and making Salon Revive my new haircare home! 😊
I’ve been seeing Lily for 3 years and I absolutely love her! I’ve lived in the DMV almost my entire life and I’ve always had one time appointments + major disappointment. So when I found Lily I couldn’t believe my luck, she’s a true gem. See haircuts below!
Best salon experience I've ever had. The salon was very clean and they took all the appropriate measures to ensure social distance/cleanliness. They did a wonderful blow-out on my natural (3c) hair. I will definitely make this my regular salon while in DC!
I love love love Salon Revive. I transitioned to natural about 2 1/2 years ago and started going to see Galya! She is extremely knowledgeable and very protective of my hair. I genuinely trust her so much and swear she is the Hair Color queen of DC. I will continue to be a patron of Salon Revive because of her. In addition, the salon is very clean and all of the staff is friendly. I went during quarantine and they are going above and beyond to protect themselves and customers.
Amazing service! Quick, easy, friendly and I LOVE MY HAIR. They made great suggestions about my hairstyle and products to help dryness. Definitely making this my new normal!
Loved it! I haven't gone to a salon in almost 5 years. Lily took such good care of me. She made me feel like a woman again.
I come to Salon Revive once in a blue moon to get my natural hair washed, blow dried and flat-ironed (cut's as well because I dont trust myself, lol)....read this and 268 more
