I moved to Maryland in 2009 from Virginia. When I moved here of course I did not know who I could go to in order to get my hair done. I was going to the Domician's shops, and this was slowly killing my hair. I met Val through my husband's friend Chris (Val's husband). I started going to Val in 2010 and have been going to her ever since! I am the type of person who grows her hair and cuts it all off like it's nothing. Val is able to be just as versatile as I am with my hair. 9 times out of 10, I actually never know what I want done to my hair. Val is able to give me a style I am always in love with. She sets time aside for each client and doesn't have 10 people in the chair at once. That is usually one reason why I hate going to salons to get my hair done. But, when Val sets you for 2pm you start at 2pm. You are the only one she is focused on during your time. I would and do recommend Val to everyone who is in need of great services in the DMV area.

I have been going to Val to get my hair done since back when we were in college. She has been doing my hair for over 15 years! There is no other stylist that I would trust to cut or color my hair EVER. Val is very personable with her clients and creates a unique experience for each one. She listens to what you want but also keeps it real with you as to what your hair can actually do. Val has been very instrumental in my transition period from permed hair to natural, recommending styles and products that I can use in between visits. Val is the bomb stylist and I loved how beautiful she made me look on my wedding day!

I've been a client of Valerie's since the late '90's. She has always catered to my plain and boring reqests. I don't like alot of flare and she knows how to create a simple but stylish hair style. I was opposed to getting a weave for a very long time, but Valerie convinced me to try it. I've been hooked ever since. Her weaves look natural and you will never have a problem with any hair falling out. She has a unique technique that would have Beyoncé jealous! I no longer live in Maryland, but I will drive three hours just to get my hair done. She is that good!

I have been an "original" client of Val's since 2007. I was referred to her by my sorority sister. My first experience was "on the fly" when I needed my hair styled for an event and I was so impressed and asked for her business card. I came in for an appointment and was "hooked" ever since. She has trained my hair through its relaxed stage as well as its natural stage (I have super thick hair) and I am always satisfied. My hair always looks and feels healthy when I leave the salon. Val just doesn't "do" your hair she actually takes care of it and only recommends what's best for your hair's health. I have always been a fan of Val's as she's a laid back down to earth individual. Once you sit in the chair you'll be hooked for life!

I have been going to Val on/off since 2000 but I've been a consistent client since 2007. I love having Val as my stylist, not just because of the compliments I receive. She is reliable and gets me in and out to keep up with my crazy work schedule. I love the fact I'm guaranteed to be out in 1.5hrs. She also takes great care of my hair and was able to help me transition away from relaxers. Also love our convos.

Valerie first did my hair in the summer of 1998 when we were college students. There was also a period where we used to do each other's weaves too. But I formally became a client of hers in 2006.Val is a great listener and I feel very comfortable when I am sitting in her chair. That may be a combination of her being my Soror and Friend for so long, but she also has a very pleasant disposition that makes you want to open up to her. I have seen Val evolve and come into her own as a hairdresser. She has done amazing work, keeps up with the latest trends and styles and is very creative when doing hair. I also admire her for pursuing her dream to become a hairstylist. It is very evident that Val puts in a lot of time and effort in doing hair and finds joy in her profession. I have and will always recommend her to anyone in need of a hairstylist.

I have had the privilege of having my "crowning glory" worked on by Valerie for two very special occasions. Both days were very important to me and I had seen the quality of Val's work in the past. She did not let me down! I was beyond pleased with her work and professionalism. She provides a thorough consultation prior to begining to ensure that her clients' needs are being met. What I really loved is that my hair didn't "fall" during either event so I was always camera ready thanks to Val!
