hŌm salon

2020 Wilson Blvd.
Arlington Virginia 22201
Carissa Lawlor, Owner

Q: What made you decide to open your own salon?

A: I have been styling hair in the Washington metropolitan area for more than 10 years, and I wanted to create a new kind of salon. One that is inclusive, collaborative and deeply connected to the local community; one that invests in the professional development of its staff; and one that offers a space where hairstylists can thrive in their careers and where they and their guests can collaborate and truly connect.

Q: What is the meaning behind the name hŌm?

A: I was inspired by the symbol ōm, which represents the unity of mind, body and spirit. Oursalon encourages the discovery of beauty, self and community. We offer one-on-one styling sessions, self-exploration events, pop-up shopping, and local outreach and volunteer opportunities.

Q: What makes your client experience unique?

A: Our salon is a fully collaborative experience. Our guests enjoy services by all our stylists and appreciate the flexibility collaboration offers them. hŌm fosters a sense of community. We provide an inclusive space where everyone is welcome—and encouraged—to just be. We are proud to be a sustainable business and strive to take care of our planet. We partner with Green Circle Salon and recycle up to 95 percent of our beauty waste.

Q: What brings you the most satisfaction in your work?

A: As a team, we are delighted when our guests see their genuine beauty reflected back at them and feel supported and encouraged by each of us.
