"A true professional with a great attitude."

Jake S.

Melvis Alessandro did a phenomenal job with my styling. I had a very important event and my hair was a disaster. He saw my big mess of hair just as a painter sees a canvas, or as a sculptor sees a block of marble. His vision and creativity saved the day, and I left a new loyal customer. Would recommend-and Melvis is a true professional with a great attitude who won't let you down.

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!

“The glowing reviews are true!”

Sharonjit S.

I was looking for a salon near Adams Morgan for a root touch up/toner, and haircut. The ratings on Google and Yelp for Universal Hair Salon were great, so I decided to give it a try. Lorena did my color, and Mila did my hair cut. They were both very professional, attentive, and so nice! Lorena even offered a complimentary conditioning mask to me for being a first-time customer (my hair really needed it!). I will definitely be back!
