They do a great job... happy with service. They are very expensive - I think overly! you can get the same quality of service other places and pay way less. Not sure it was worth the money. Will not go again only because of prices.

I went here two weeks before the wedding to get a facial. Sara was fantastic. She made the process so smooth, and painless. I was super relaxed. She gave me great skin recommendations and made my face look beautiful and bright. I wish I have gone sooner! if you can try to get 2-3 facials in before your wedding. you will feel great!

I use the Red Door Spa at the Willard Hotel often. I have been there for mani / pedi, facial, massage and brow and lash tinting. The staff is professional, the receptionist is helpful and attentive. My one qualm would be that the space feels a little outdated.

I hadn't heard the best things about Red Door but I figured they are nationally reputable (and other salons I had found couldn't fit in myself and my bridesmaids at the same time) so we booked hair and make-up for myself and two of my bridesmaids.

I don't want to vent on this review, so I will just say two things:
1) overpriced and snooty
2) think they know it all

I showed up with a photo of how I wanted my hair. note, this was a photo of ME as a bridesmaid years ago so I knew the style would work on my hair. My stylist convinced me the style was very dated and wouldn't look good. OK OK my bad for letting her change my mind but I thought Ok Im paying $150 for my hair, this lady is a professional and I should trust her.

Well I hated my hair. AND, it TOTALLY fell out 2 hours later. I told her whatever she did, please please just make it stay put bc hte last thing I wanted to worry about was my hair when I was dancing and running around. TWO HOURS LATER it TOTALLY fell out. Luckily, someone at the wedding was a stylist and was able to fix it for the rest of the night but she was baffled that a professional had done my hair. She said "wait is there any hairsprray at all in here?" and "why are there only a handful of bobby pins?" she thought I must have gone to a beauty school NOT a highly prestigious salon. There were other issues I had with this place but I don't feel like wasting any more time so I'll be brief - DONT GO HERE to get your hair done.

Please note that if it wasn't for my wonderful make up stylist, I would have given this place all zeros. My make up was just what I wanted. It was way overpriced for what it was, BUT at least it lasted and was what I wanted.

Please note that this is for a specific Red Door location with a specific service. I did a make-up trial at the Red Door Salon in Friendship Heights, DC which was a horrible experience. Unfortunately I had to pay $60, but I definitely did not use them for my wedding make-up. (I did, however, end up getting my hair done there, which I was pleased with.)
So, in one word, the make-up artist was rude. Very rude, very pushy, didn't listen to me at all, and did a poor job. He pretty much started off by right away caking foundation on, without asking anything about what I liked, or testing any hues on my skin, etc. I told him throughout the process that I felt like it was too much - I would ask him to take some off, and his response was "Well if that's what you think maybe you shouldn't wear any make-up at all. Do you want your zit to show too?" I would also ask my sister what she thought, and she said she thought it was a little much. The make-up artist turned to her and said "Well, it's not your wedding, so.." I couldn't believe how unprofessional he was. At the end, I told him I felt out of my comfort zone and didn't feel like myself. Him: "As the make-up professional, I'm going to tell you that you SHOULD feel out of your comfort zone." Seriously? To top it off, I got home and realized that nothing was rubbed in well. The make up lines were so clear on my face and it couldn't be more obvious that I had make up caked on. I was so displeased.

Nicholas, or Nikki as I called him, did an incredible job with my make-up. He is very knowledgeable in make-up artistry. He definitely knew how to enhance my features while making sure that I don't look "too made up" in person and in pictures. I came in for one trial and I loved what he did. Nicholas is simply the best! I highly recommend him!!

I loved my wedding hair and makeup done at the red door salon in chevy chase dc. I booked the trial hair and makeup because I was nervous as I'd never had my hair or makeup done before. As it turned out I had a different makeup artist on the actual day b/c the artist who did my trial had to leave town unexpectedly and even though my hairstylst was the same, my hair looked really different on the day of the wedding that it did on the trial. I liked it a lot better for the wedding so I was happy but I do wonder if the trial was necessary -- and it was pricey. I guess it gave me a peace of mind though. Given that so many people are looking at you and there will be so many pictures taken, I decided to splurge on the hair and makeup and would do it again. I'm actually going back to the same people (Laura and Melissa) for my hair and makeup for my sister's wedding. They were very nice at the salon and did their best to keep me relaxed on my wedding day.

I can't say enough about how happy I was with using Red Door for my hair and makeup. Isabelle did my makeup, and she really listened and gave me exactly what I wanted. She also did the makeup for my bridesmaids and they looked great. Abby is a genius with hair. As thrilled as I was with my trial, she did an even better job on my wedding day, giving me exactly what I dreamed of. I also had small wild daisies to add to the 'do that day, and she had no problem with it. It was perfect. She also did the hair for all my bridesmaids, and they looked great. Abby and Isabelle came to our hotel room, they were prompt, worked quickly and were pleasant and professional.
