Reader Deals: New Year, New You

Want to update your wardrobe? Your makeup? Your hairstyle? With these six exclusive deals, you can get a new look—and save.

New Do
Here are two salon deals for those who want to start the year with a new hairstyle:

In a beautiful 1920s rowhouse in Old Town, Aquilano Salon specializes in color treatments for men and women. Help the salon celebrate its new location, two doors from its old shop, by getting a free haircut (a $65 value) when booking any chemical service ($70 and up) in January. This offer is valid for new clients only. Mention The Washingtonian when booking.

David’s Beautiful People, a large and friendly salon, is offering 50 percent off Brazilian Keratin straightening (normally $350 and up) and 20 percent off any hair color or highlights ($65 and up) in January. Ask for the David’s Washingtonian Beauty Deal when booking.

Aquilano Salon, 712 N. Washington St., Alexandria; 703-683-0755
David’s Beautiful People, 12121 Rockville Pike, Rockville; 301-881-2540

New Shape
Indulge in too many holiday cookies? PureSkin, a boutique spa in Chevy Chase, features an array of slimming, toning, and detoxifying treatments such as Endermologie ($90 and up), body wraps ($125 and up), and an infrared sauna treatment called the SlimDome ($50). In January, take 20 percent off any treatment or package when you mention The Washingtonian at booking.

PureSkin, 4609 Willow La., Chevy Chase; 301-907-6662

New Clothes
Julia Farr knows a thing or two about looking good—the former corporate lawyer was a top seller of Worth clothing before launching her own shop last year in DC’s Friendship Heights. Pop into the boutique, which resembles a Parisian boudoir, and peruse names such as Halston Heritage, Milly, Adam, and Ralston handbags. 

In January, take 25 percent off any one item by mentioning The Washingtonian at checkout. For those who want to update their whole look, Farr offers in-store and at-home wardrobe consultations.

Julia Farr, 5232 44th St., NW; 202-364-3277

New Makeup
Princess Street Beauty, a new makeup consulting service, is offering a 20-percent discount to Washingtonian readers for makeup shopping, instruction, and application—a service that typically is $200 (the cost of any products is extra).

You meet with owner Megan Yamamoto, who assesses your current products and shops with you for new makeup that fits your budget and lifestyle. She then shows you how to use the new products and provides a makeup application.

Mention The Washingtonian when booking to get the deal. Valid through March 31.

Princess Street Beauty, 703-475-6063 or e-mail for appointments.

New Nails
Enjoy a little me time and also help the environment with a treatment at Silver Spring’s new eco-friendly nail spa, the Emerald Door. In January, mention The Washingtonian when booking to get 20 percent off a signature mani-pedi, normally $110. Your hands and feet will be treated to a massage, a paraffin dip, an oatmeal/honey/milk/brown-sugar scrub, and a warm towel wrap infused with essential oils.

The Emerald Door, 8311 Grubb Rd., Silver Spring; 301-587-5800
