The Art of Color… Not only is Rodi a stylist, he is also a Redken color educator, having worked for years mastering his skills with highlights and color. He has used that knowledge to train his dedicated staff making sure that they all have exemplary color skills. It is because of this devotion to deliver the best performance, as well as the highest level of luxury, that Rodi was voted “Best Colorist” in Northern Virginia Magazine.

On the subject of curly hair…   Rodi began working with curly hair as a teenager in Lebanon and it has become one of his greatest passions. For years he trained to master his technique with curly hair, and it is because of this he sought out the training and certification with Ouidad, and was one of the first salons to be certified in the DC area. Now he and his Ouidad certified stylists are always working to transform your curls.
