“Dear PoPville,

I am in need of a hairstylist – ideally, one that specializes in or is amazing with my fellow blonde-haired folk. I’m a natural(ish) blonde and had a great stylist but they moved. I’ve tried several other stylists and salons since but just haven’t found the one. Read More

Thanks to Tom for sending: “Did a double take passing by Camilo’s Barber shop on Windom St. The new sign went up 2 days ago. Diane, who has cut hair at Camillo’s for 20+ years, bought the business. I popped in and she said that she doesn’t plan to change anything, and that Camilo still stops by every day to say hello.”

“Dear PoPville,

Given all the reports of bars, restaurants, and gyms requiring COVID vaccinations, has anyone heard of any hair salons, massage places, nail salons, or other personal care services requiring vaccination – whether that’s requiring it of their staff and/or requiring it of customers? Would like to know what places are safer for me to patronize.”

“Dear PoPville,

Can anyone in the Popville Brain Trust recommend a good DC barber for beards and facial hair? Looking to have a professional clean up my pandemic beard before a special event. I know a lot of places aren’t doing this since it requires removing a mask, but surely someone has got to offer it with proof of a vaccine, right?”

Thanks to Margot for passing on the sad word from Salon Roi:

“Friends, it is with mixed emotion that we share this with you! Like millions, we have been struggling for over a year now to keep our DOORS OPEN, while operating 20/30% of our normal capacity and Income. We have done a good job following all the COVID rules to the “T.” AFTER ALL THAT, we were not successful in negotiating a new LEASE. So, like many long-time businesses in Woodley Park, we are forced to close the doors of Salon Roi after 52 years in the same Building.

So, June 30th, we will be leaving Our MARILYN MURAL behind, as we all pack our styling carts and head to SALON ROI (#2) Read More
