Was in for the first time yesterday and Tricia did a balayage on my hair…She’s so good at her craft and it was cool to have a stylist so passionate about her profession…Will definitely be back! – Donna M.
I’ve never loved my hair more than today! I took Tricia’s advice and went for a Bayalage and she did an amazing job!! Thank you so much for my new doo ❤️ it!! – Rosanne T.
Just received my third haircut from Lee today. She succeeded in making my hair look EXACTLY like the picture I brought in. Staff was wonderful and attentive – and the head massage was amazing. – Blake Bommelje Keegan
Everyone was very friendly, great music and offerings of wine and beer! First time there today and would definitely go back. Lorraine did a great job! – Heather R.
A great haircut takes vision. I’ve been looking for an Alexandria hair salon that has a clear vision for each of their customers based on their personal style, hair type, and lifestyle. Lorraine April delivered that and way more.
Set in a cute, old town row home with a little open patio out back and a complimentary glass of wine, Lorraine Aprile will not disappoint. Almost a month later and I’m even loving how the cut is growing out!
If you’re looking for a flat out fantastic hair cut, you can stop your search now. You’ve found your salon. – Tricia M
Best hair color and highlights I have ever had!
I decided to give Lorraine Aprile Salon in Alexandria a try after having several bad hair colorings at another salon in Old Town Alexandria. I had seen reviews on line, which were great. I had also walked past the salon many times. I loved the quaint look of it.
The salon is classy, elegant and warm. Perfect for Old Town. The staff was warm, friendly, and professional. I was greeted by just about everyone who was working there when I walked in and then offered a beverage and munchies. After speaking with my stylist (the owner), we decided on a plan to undo the horrible brassy orange highlights that were placed by another salon. I could not be more happy with my color, cut and highlights. I have never loved my hair so much! And my husband said he has never seen my hair look better!
Lorraine Aprile Salon is the best! It is a welcome change from the ultra modern, cold, impersonal, and unprofessional salons that are so prevalent. – Jennifer S.
Overall great experience.
Nothing pretentious or snobby, a very relaxing atmosphere. It was surprising easy to find parking considering the salon is only a block from King street. They will feed your meter if you’re having a lot of services done. I was also offered a glass of wine. They’re also booked pretty solidly, which is always a good sign. Already booked my next appointment. – Polly H.
Historically I am a salon jumper. Having no specific loyalty to a stylist. And after a year or more, move to a different salon for a different vibe. Not so with Lorraine Aprile Salon in Alexandria. They are really all for one, the customer. Each time I visit, I get a consultation. Want to change the look? Let’s talk about it and see what we can do.
The salon is in a home. And you feel at home as soon as you walk in. Most important, you are treated as a person, not the next appointment.
PS…I live in Washington, DC. And after more than a year have discovered a lot of retail experiences to be had before and after my appointment in Old Town and Alexandria too. – E.R.
First, I love the location. Plenty of on-street parking and close to home for me. The salon itself is a cozy and welcoming place. Who isn’t charmed to walk into a salon with a warm fire burning on a blustery Feb day?
Everyone I dealt with on the staff was kind and friendly-I saw none of the “normal-for-DC pretension” in this salon. I loved that I got 50% off my haircut although I would have have paid full price without a complaint-the girl has skills! I won’t go anywhere else from now on-my hair has grown out from her cut and it still looks great…to me, that’s the real sign of a good stylist. – Marty S.
My hair is very difficult and my current Hair Dresser moved to Florida so I was searching for someone new. Ran into a friend who looked fabulous and suggested I use her hair salon. I am so glad I did. My hair has never looked better. Lorraine did a fabulous job with both cut and color. The salon is gorgeous and the employees are super friendly and fun. Thanks for the wonderful experience. I will be back soon:) – R.P.
This was my first visit to a salon since moving from California. I searched many salons, read many reviews and decided to go with Lorraine Aprile.
The salon is very cozy and welcoming! Everyone there was extremely friendly, making me feel as though I’ve been a client for years. I absolutely love it and can’t wait for my next appointment. They have secured my business. I highly recommend the salon!! Street parking, credit cards, great prices!!!! – Jaime B.
