Paula's Designs - see hair styles and services for DC, MD & VA special events

Each interaction between Paula and her clients begins with a consultation, where she gets to know what cuts they like, the color they'd prefer, overall expectations and what they want to have done.

Her decisions on color, cut, shape and overall design are made to suit the person being styled and this varies by person, what's best about her work is this individualism. Paula knows when to add a hair piece or twist a look to the side, she gets why some people do well in bangs and others need long layers. Her color selection is artistically based on the tones most fitted to the clients' appearance. She follows warm & cold hue standards that complement facial features and appear natural alongside the original hair, lips,eyes and skintone. See examples of professionally matched hair color & hair cuts in the image gallery below.
