I need to find someone to cut my hair in DC. I’m a shorthaired and semi-androgynous hipster-lite lady in my late twenties.
I’ve been coordinating haircuts with trips back to Austin, but I will not be there again until the summer. Plus, I don’t actually live there anymore, so I should probably try to find someone closer to me to cut my hair. However, due to some atrocious haircuts (I’ve resembled both Justin Bieber AND Nick Carter), I am quite picky and would really like to get a solid recommendation.
I paid $80 before tip in Austin, so I assume I need to be prepared to pay $100 -$120 here. I am also more than willing to travel to Baltimore or New York (I have friends there and could turn my haircut into a weekend trip). It would be terrific to find someone metro accessible in DC (I’m close to Eastern Market and Union Station), but since I’m willing to travel to another city for someone spectacular, this is obviously not a deal breaker.
Lastly, on the off chance someone is familiar with him, my stylist in Austin was Blaine at Jose Luis and I would love to find someone similar. For those of you not familiar, he always has lots of ideas of what would work for me (right now my haircut is similar to this
), is really easy to work with, and is also sort of a hipster. I have asked him for recommendations, but he has only cut hair in Austin, so he’s not familiar with stylists in other cities.
Thank y’all so much!
