Almost 4 years later and I’m still rating this place a 5. Consistently great haircuts and Lorena is a pleasure to see every time. She is talented and creates whatever style you would like. My last review stays true!

This place is a hidden gem! I don’t think I’ve ever come out of a haircut feeling so confident. Lorena is a master! I’ve gotten partial highlights here before and loved them every time, but decided to do something a little more drastic and go full highlights and a new cut. Lorena stayed well past closing time to make sure my hair looked flawless. You can tell she is a perfectionist.

Good service. Lorena really listened to my vision of what I wanted my hair to look like -which was really important after numerous run-ins with stylists who cared more about their ideas than me – and made it into a really nice look. I couldn’t be happier.

Lorena took good care of my teenager friend. She was donating hair and she made her feel very comfortable and did a wonderful job! Very pleasant!

I went to Universal Hair Salon as a personal recommendation to have Lorena style my hair….. I love my haircut and highlights!

Today I got the best haircut of my life from Lorena! It was my first time at Universal and my first time getting my haircut in DC since moving here. It was a busy Saturday, and I arrived early. Lorena shuffled the schedule a bit and took me right away, bumping down the old lady before me who was late. It’s ok, they gave her a coffee so she was happy being bumped down. I also got a yummy mug of coffee. Lorena was super nice and seemed to care about my hair. I just wanted a few inches trimmed off, nothing special. She asked if I’d like to do something to “make the hair move.” I was hesitant, but she convinced me that it would be good. Ok Lorena, I trust you! She worked very quickly, and it kind of reminded me of a top chef with her scissors and comb. The end result was BEAUTIFUL! She blew it out until I looked like a hair commercial. My hair is also super shiny and soft now.

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.

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!"

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!
