Have a Special Occasion Coming Up? Come to KARMA

May 4, 2016

On most days, all of us wake up, get dressed, go to work – and then suddenly, we have a special occasion to look forward to. Weddings, graduations, showers, galas and more give us an excuse to sparkle a little brighter in the company of friends and family. To really look your best, consider coming to KARMA to get ready beforehand!

KARMA was voted “Best Salon” in Washingtonian Magazine’s 2015 Best Of poll. You’re probably well aware by now that we have the most talented and professional hair and makeup artists in the city. Starting at $200, get your makeup done before your big soirée by celebrity makeup artist Erwin Gomez. Gomez has worked with Jennifer Garner, Becky G., Eva Longoria, Paris Hilton, and countless other Hollywood celebrities, so he’s very experienced when it comes to getting someone glammed up for a special event. Or, starting at $140, you can have picture perfect makeup by Adrian (he’s worked with Cecily Strong, Cynthia Nixon, Gabrielle Union and Rosario Dawson, to name a few) or Laura (she’s worked with Gina Rodriguez, Allison Janney, and styled models at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week).

You can’t be the belle of the ball without getting your hair done, too! Time your next haircut to happen a few hours before your event. The gentleman’s cut is just $55. Our ladies haircut and finish starts at $95, and you’ll leave your chair with a gorgeous, blown-out new ‘do. To have one of our artists style it up, our special occasion hair starts at $125.

We can add beautiful, glittering hairpins for those extra-special nights, as we always have an assortment available at our salon for an additional charge. From clip-in extensions to Brazilian straightening treatments, there is no end to what our hair artists can do to transform your look for the night. Like our makeup artists, our hair artists – Peggy, Patrick, Skyler, David, Ji, Tim, Jeanice, Jillian, Chantel and Rodney – have long lists of celebrity clients on their rosters. Get a look at who they’ve worked with by reading their bios.


We would also love to get you ready for your event with a fresh manicure or pedicure. Depending on who you’ll be mingling with, you may want to de-stress beforehand by adding an extra 15-minute hand or leg massage!


Don’t forget that we also offer body bronzing, facials, waxing, and more to get you polished for your big night out. Remember to grab a new tube of lipstick or liquid gloss by Erwin Gomez, which he will be happy to match to your skin tone and the occasion.

We would be honored to help you get glammed up for your next special occasion. Schedule your appointment by calling 202.293.3333.
