About Susan Scott

Born into a family of hairstylists, Susan followed her passion and became a cosmetology student before embarking on a career as a Ford model.

"Sue Scott is probably the best hair stylist I have ever had. I have been patronizing her for over three years and I recommend her to anyone who is interested in quality hair care. In addition to being an exceptional colorist, Sue excels at building friendly and professional relationships as well as listening to and understanding the wants and needs of her customers."

"I love Sue Scott! Definitely book your next appointment here! Sue has been doing my hair for three years and she is a wonderful hairstylist! She is super talented with color (I get lowlights for my greying hair) and cuts (gives a great haircut). I rely on her to do frequent blowdrys on my very thick curly hair to keep my hair looking smooth, shiny and professionally styled. I don't know what I would do without Sue. She is the best!"

Donna G. , Alexandria, VA

"Sue does a great job with my hard-to-style hair. I have tried a lot of different stylists in my seven years in Northern Virginia, and Sue is the best!! I would highly recommend her!"

I've been going to Sue for my haircuts and color for years! She is the only hairstylist I go to. She's an expert with curly hair women like myself and she knows how to cut my thick and curly hair into stylish cuts that fit my face. Whenever I go to her, I just pretty much let her take reign over my hair style... I trust her that much. I recently went to visit her this past weekend at her new hair studio and she gave me a beautiful cut and color. The color turned out fantastic...I've gotten so many compliments on my hair in just the last few days. "Her new studio is in a great location... so that means I'll come by to see her more often :) It is right up the street from the Hoffman movie theatre in Alexandria and there is PLENTY of free parking. Not to mention, her new studio is private so essentially, it'll only be you and Sue in the studio. No more listening to random conversations with other stylists and clients. Last thing I have to mention is that while I was there, another client came by to pick up some samples and I noticed that this client's cut and color was great too. You really can't go wrong with Sue. Check her out!"

"Sue has been cutting my hair for more than four years, and I couldn't be happier with her work. I am extremely particular about my haircuts and was rarely satisfied with the work of my previous stylists, but Sue quickly learned my preferences, figured out the quirks of how my hair grows, and consistently turns out fantastic work every time. In addition to her technical excellence as a stylist, Sue is also a polished professional and very customer service oriented. She takes pains to remain up-to-date on the latest techniques and styles, and she is responsive to clients' scheduling needs and other concerns. I have referred several of my friends (both men and women) to Sue, and they all have come away giving her glowing reviews and eager to become repeat clients. (One friend, who lives in Denver, even makes a special point to schedule an appointment with Sue when she visits DC.")

I met Sue Scott in 2013 while she was working at a salon in Arlington. When I heard she was branching out on her own and establishing her own salon in Alexandria, there was no question that I was going to follow her. "Sue is not only a highly skilled stylist and expert colorist, she is also receptive to my wishes. Sue listens to my needs and offers wonderful suggestions without ever trying force me to change something. I love that Sue is down to earth, welcoming and warm. It is very clear that Sue LOVES her work! It's exciting to be around her because of her positive energy. After trying so many different salons and stylists over the years, I am so very fortunate to have finally found Sue. Go see her at Wisp Salon"!!

"Sue has cut this dude's hair for about 3 years or more. She does an excellent job, and every time I ask for a change of pace she knows exactly what to do. Highly recommended for men's cuts. It's easy drive from Arlington, with easy, free parking out front and not far from a great Whole Foods".

Rizzo B. , Alexandria, VA

"Sue is an extremely gifted stylist who cares about her clients. Three years ago, I was lucky enough to discover her & will now only let her cut my hair. She understands & appreciates my "low maintenance" approach --my hair looks good, in spite of my "wash, shake & go" styling regime. Moreover, she made my hair look decent while I went from all-over color to my natural shade, which is a mix of brown and silver. Her experience, skill, & professionalism are unmatched."
