Y’all, it’s tough to find a good hair stylist in the D.C. area! It baffles the mind. Think about it. People from all over the world come here to live, work, play, pro-create, govern, be diplomatic. You would think you could find plenty of good hair stylists! But in my eleven years living in Arlington & trying probably a dozen different salons & stylists, I have only found ONE that’s suitable. And that’s Cutting Edge by Mora in Arlington, VA.
Normally I would default to the ol’ ‘it’s not you, it’s me’ fallback answer. Maybe it’s just me who’s too picky & that’s why for ten years I hadn’t been able to find a decent stylist anywhere from D.C. to Tysons. But I’ve had friends say the same thing! We are baffled that this problem exists in our area. #firstworldproblems I’m here to tell you though, Cutting Edge by Mora not only does a good job, she does a great job! Woohoo!
Last year when I was laid up with a broken foot, I had plenty of time to dig into this problem & find a solution! I posted a request in the Rising Tide Society Washington, D.C. Facebook group asking for recommendations in the area for great hair stylists. A couple of people mentioned A to Z Hair Studio in Arlington, so I called & got an appointment with Mora. I hauled my cookies out with a broken foot, got my hair did, and never looked back!
A to Z Hair Studio recently decided to go co-op, where their stylists are now in charge of maintaining their own client lists, scheduling their own appointments, & essentially renting space from the salon. This works out really well because I now have a direct line to Mora when I need to make an appointment! No more calling the salon, getting put on hold, phonetically spelling my last name (H E G as in giant…). We text, we schedule, I pay her directly, bada bing, bada boom, dunzo!
Now that Mora is a bonafide business owner, she needed some fresh headshots for her marketing materials & social media pages, and I was happy to oblige! I met her at the hair studio & shot these photos where Mora does her thing! I highly recommend her services & am always happy with my trim, color, & blowouts. You can check out her Facebook here & email her to schedule an appointment today!
