“I have been a hair stylist for over 15 years and have had Jean Barbee Dawkins as my personal hair stylist for over 25 years. She is exceptionally talented and creative; so much so that I have a weave and no one knows it!”

R.D., Alexandria, VA

“Jean has been my hair stylist for over 25 years. Even when I traveled 75 percent of the time and had a hard time coordinating my schedule, I was able to make private appointments so that she could keep my hair looking great.”

S.W., Fairfax Station, VA

“I can’t remember a time when I did not have Jean as my hairstylist – even before she had a salon. Not only is she a top notch hair stylist, she is patient and a good listener. I feel fortunate to be one of her clients and I’m truly grateful for the care that she provides.”

S.B., Arlington, VA

“I was a hair stylist for many years, but I was never satisfied with the way I styled my hair. Jean is the only one I’ve trusted and she has been my stylist for almost 20 years. Her knowledge of hair coloring is the bomb!”

I.P., Leesburg, VA

“Choosing a hairstylist is like choosing a doctor. So man choices, opinions and recommendations. Who to choose? I’ve been a client of Jean’s for over 20 years and I’ve NEVER seen a bad head come out of her chair. Her attention to detail borders on perfectionism and her creative eye is spot on. She knows how to keep styles fresh and individually tailored to each client. But more than that, her first priority is the health of your hair. Now, isn’t that what it takes to have a “slammin” hairstyle! She may not be for everyone, but she may be for you.”
