the shop

Since we first opened in 2006, we have had the good fortune of building strong relationships with not only our guests but also our community. At The Shop, our goal is not only to provide a great cut & color but a great experience as well - we want you to look good AND feel good! Walk through our doors, relax and make yourself at home while our team strives to provide the best haircare available to each guest. We do this by combining our continued professional education, teamwork and comfortable salon environment to make each visit with us an exceptional one. We look forward to making you part of the family here at The Shop!

the shop experience

The Shop  is a place that invites our guests to be part of a lifestyle. We offer transparent pricing that allows our guests to budget correctly before booking their services. We truly believe that seeing our guests on a more frequent, affordable basis (opposed to breaking their bank on one appointment) leads to more polished, healthy hair and a stronger working relationship between guest and stylist. ​

Our space is designed for Washingtonians and visitors alike to enjoy a beverage and work on their laptops during their appointments. In this city we can all relate to moving fast and being short on time, so  we understand the need for our guests to make the most of every moment. ​

Through teamwork, leadership, and continued education we strive to make every visit with us an exceptional one.  After decades spent being a part of this incredible industry we have learned that pairing a creative staff in a comfortable environment consistently expands the beauty experience. We encourage sharing your experience at The Shop on social media with the DMV-area community by tagging us @theshopSALON, @theshopatshaw & @theshopatunionmarket on your posts!
