"Big thank you to Gorkem for cutting my hair exactly the way I wanted!! I’ve never had bangs before but I’m so glad I went with Gorkem and they came out so well! He is so talented and nice! Also the hair products smell SO good. Plus the entire staff is very kind. Looking forward to my next visit! ♥️"

"Karen is a phenomenal hair stylist! I have been going to her for 3+ years and will continue to do so. She has done everything from a beautiful balayage on my dark brunette hair, to helping me go back to my natural look, to helping me grow my hair longer than it’s ever been. She is both a professional and a sweetheart at the same time. Love her and love this salon!"

"William Brown has to be the best stylist in DC. I’ve been seeing him for over 10 years. He is
equally brilliant with color as he is with hair cuts. And he treats you as if your hair is the most interesting thing in the world. I can’t recommend him or Illusions of Georgetown more."

"Love this place. My Mom has been going to Illusions for over 20 years and when they opened the Georgetown location it was finally more convenient for me. Since William has been doing my color, I've never had more compliments...even from other stylists. Beautiful salon, the best customer service and great hair stylists. I'm hooked."

"I had the most awesome experience at Illusions of Georgetown!! All my needs were met and exceeded my expectations! The atmosphere is great. I felt like I was hanging out with family. They really know how to take care of you. My hair tends to thin out and fall out a lot due to me having Lupus, but ever since I came here its so much fuller and healthier and doesn't fall out anymore!! I give them 5 thumbs up!!"

"I moved up here 5 years ago and at the time I was in desperate need of a color and haircut correct. The person I had gone to completely botched my hair, almost to the point of tears. I stumbled upon Illusions Salon and saw Amanda, she worked some serious magic and I haven't gone anywhere else since. She is FANTASTIC with color and extremely knowledgeable about the newest trends. I often get asked where I have my hair done because she is just that good. I have referred several people to this salon because every stylist there is very passionate about what they do, they form great relationships with their clients and they care. I love this salon and you will too!"

"10,000% RECOMMEND GORKEM FOR BALAYAGE!!!

Gorkem is incredible working with color. He fixed my brassy and orange/red dye and gave me the perfect color correction and full balayage. Asian hair can be very stubborn, but he clearly knows what he's doing.

He also gave me great curtain bangs and a layered haircut. I'm so glad I found such a great hairdresser in the DC area."

"So happy I found this place. I was looking for a new hairdresser and my hair was in terrible shape after doing nothing for 9 months. Karen made some excellent suggestions during the consultation and was able to take me right away. I am so happy with the quality of her work and the end result. I booked a follow up appointment for 4 months. I found my new hairdresser and hair salon!!"

"Wow thank you Jon- he is so talented, listened to what I was looking for and took it from there with his depth of skill in knowledge. Very kind staff, beautiful salon- I highly recommend Illusions of Georgetown. Jon also works at their Shirlington location. Psst! Ask for his Turkish Blowout! ;0)"

"I had an absolutely amazing experience with Trenice. She is a true professional! She colored and cut my hair and I left feeling so beautiful. Trenice is extremely personable, friendly and paid close attention to what I wanted to look like. Oftentimes, I would leave a salon feeling like my hair was fried but that was not the case with Trenice. I would highly recommend her as she truly cares for hair. One of the best in Washington, DC."
