Award Winning Elle Top 100 Hair Salon In Georgetown, Washington DC

Salon L’eau delivers unparalleled style from an elegant 3-story row house in the heart of Washington D.C.’s Georgetown neighborhood. Every client experience meets the immense standards of owner LoAnn Lai, who’s been at the forefront of Washington’s hair scene for more than a decade, breaking new ground with straightening treatments, color techniques, extensions and elegant cuts. In addition, the salon recently opened Crew Cuts, an ultimate grooming experience for men.

Named Elle Magazine’s Top Hair Salon in Washington D.C. and one of the Top 100 in the US two years in a row, Salon L´eau’s European-trained stylists deliver top-notch cuts, color, and cutting-edge hair treatments suited to our client´s personal needs. A tranquil spa completes the space, allowing our clients to have all of their beauty needs met in one serene and luxurious location.

“L’eau,” French for water, is symbolic of the ebb and flow of style, and an immersion in professional care and attention – all signature attributes that embody the upscale Salon L’eau experience.

COVID Response

Your health and safety is our #1 priority. We’ve enhanced our cleaning procedures, installed plexiglass barriers, and opened private, outdoor stations for beauty services - just to name a few ways we’re addressing COVID-19 (full list below). 

As our client, Margaret, said in her recent review, “The salon took great precautions to make customers feel safe. The salon was very clean and all the staff wore masks, plus there was physical distancing.”
