“I am satisfied and I will recommend him to any of my friends”

Chady M.

I am a male and had long hair for almost 12 years. I was hesitant before cutting it. I looked online for a hairdresser in DC and had no concern about the location nor the price. After reading about Melvis at Universal Hair Salon I decided to go there. I had a perfect experience. He was professional, listened to my concern, considerate, and went through every step before he cut my hair.

"This salon is a hidden gem in Adams Morgan."

Sarah K.

I got a wash, cut, and a blowout for $40, and it was probably the best I've ever had! Melvis is an absolute professional. Not only is he ridiculously nice, but he's AMAZING at what he does. It's so nice to see someone so invested in their craft. I'll be going to see him as long as he's working there!

"A wonderful experience!"

M L.

Really great price and friendly atmosphere! Plus, Lorena was able to take exactly what I was describing for my hair and make it happen. I will definitely be a regular there!
