about washington square
WELCOME TO THE BEST SALON IN ATHENS, GA
Every appointment at the studio begins with a conversation.
We know you’re smart, dynamic and likely busy. We also know that thinking about how you present yourself while navigating the world can feel as daunting as it can empowering, as frustrating as it can be fun.
We KNOW we can show you your hair can be everything you need. Despite what you’ve been told, you do have amazing hair, and we can show you. Washington Square Studio isn’t just your hair sanctuary, it’s a place you can drop in if you just want to hang out and unwind and talk to some seriously amazing people.
Two heads are better than one. What Washington Square offers is collaboration. We have a knack for taking inspirations and references and blending them into a shared aesthetic, which is classic sharp and witty. You have a brain trust working with you to create a working style that is versatile and suitable. We create color that brings out your best features and blends away things you aren’t crazy about. Handcrafted, thoughtful haircuts that have life and movement and shapes that grow out beautifully. Collaboration is the cornerstone of Washington Square Studio.
Departmentalization (Allie cuts, Shayne colors) requires a deep level of trust. It also allows the client access to two creative minds and an endless supply of ideas for your hair. Shayne says, “It’s refreshing and inspiring to have that constant back and forth and the energy we create. It becomes this thing that is huge for clients and their hair, NOBODY is phoning it in up here.”
We will give it to you straight, every time. But we’ll also hold your hand and walk you through it.
We all encounter messaging about how we should look, feel and be daily. We offer a moment to pause and talk about how you feel best, and an opportunity to consult with specialists who want you to feel that way every day.
