About Samena Amin

Welcome to Lavish! My name is Samena. My style is classic with an edge! At the age of 16, I received my cosmetology license and fell in love with hair. Over 20 years later, I still have passion for hair and building relationships with clients. I enjoy continuing my advanced education. I have previously taken advanced classes at Graham Webb Academy and Vidal Sassoon Academy in Santa Monica, CA. I specialize in classic to modern haircuts, unique color techniques using Goldwell, Joico, and Olaplex. Whether you need a sophisticated style for the office or something perfect for a night out on the town, I would love to give you the Lavish look you desire!


"Samena is a very talented artist. I can't believe my hair looks so beautiful!"


"I would never trust my pixi cut to anyone else! For years, Samena has taken care to understand my style and wishes and help me get the hair I want. She listens, she knows her craft, she's an artist!"


"Samena always works magic on my hair! I trust that I will leave happy, and I love chatting with her! I've been a return customer for years. <3"


"I just met Samena last week and she did an AMAZING job on my hair. I recently had a baby and was doing the mom bun every day. I told her I needed something easy to manage but also could be cute and more fun. She ran with it and gave me a cut that I love and that can be styled quickly and easily. It's an added bonus that she's sweet and badass - she's so talented!"


"Samena is wonderful. She has been doing my hair for almost 10 years and I can always count on her to give wise counsel on what to do with my hair. She is the consummate professional and has a gift with color and style that just can't be matched."


"I started going to Samena in 2000! She has NEVER let me down. Stylish cuts (that look good on ME--not just in a magazine) and coloring that flatters my skin tone no matter what the season. Plus, she's COOL!"


"Samena is AMAZING! She is welcoming, professional, personable, and takes her time to do an incredible job. Her space is tidy, colorful and inviting. You will walk away feeling beautiful. I will definitely be returning to her. Not letting anyone else in VA cut my hair. Thank you, Samena!"


"Samena is AMAZING!!!! She has been doing my hair for nearly a decade and she never ceases to amaze me. I pretty much come in, sit in her chair and she goes to work. I don't even have to tell her what I need. She already knows. All I have to tell her is I either want to go light or dark and she does her magic mixing her colors and always makes my hair look fabulous! All my friends who I have referred now won't see anyone else. Trust me. She is always up to date with the trends and colors and if you tell her what you want and she does not think that is a good look for you, she will tell you. She has saved me MANY times from making hair mistakes. You will not regret putting your hair in Samena's hands."


"Samena has never given me anything BUT a fantastic haircut that I have loved. Since I moved to NOVA in 2010, she is the only person I trust to cut my hair. From long locks to pixie cuts, she's taken my hair through everything and it's always been easy to love. If you need a haircut from a fantastic person who will make sure you love your hair AND know how to take care of it well, Samena is who you wanna go see."
