Fun-loving and fashion-forward!
Fiddleheads is a fun-loving, fashion-forward salon located in the heart of DuPont Circle and the fashionable epicenter of Washington, DC. Fiddleheads sits on the beautiful 17th street corridor, which hosts such differing events from the annual Drag Races to the fall Gallery Walk.
Fiddleheads seamlessly incorporates these elements of the progressive and the historic into its customer service and attitude. For six years Fiddleheads has been treating their clients to a uniquely relaxing experience the moment they enter the door. Conceived, designed, and maintained by owner/operator/head stylist Beth Abroms, Fiddleheads is named after the coiled leaves of the Ostrich Fern, a northern delicacy that Beth discovered on a trip to Montreal. Fiddleheads are always boiled and served with butter. Some popular fiddlehead variations include Dijon, pickled, sweet fiddleheads, or served with shrimp on toast.
Fiddleheads offers clients the opportunity to get to know their stylist in a casual, yet professional manner. Each appointment begins with an interview and assessment where clients can speak openly about their style and intended direction. Stylists Tina Glass and Linda Sanders agree with Beth's approach, "Why fight nature?" In accordance with this mantra, Fiddleheads carries an extensive, intensive, therapeutic line of products that soothe the light and wavy, tame the extremely frizzy, and fit every texture in between.
