Between the appointment stalking and assembly-line pedis, you’ve got a love/hate relationship with your salon.
Stay committed to your beauty habit with Primed, the city’s first members-only salon, newly opened in Georgetown.
Inspired by her own underappreciated loyalty, 24-year-old entrepreneur Diana Ellis created an oasis where clients dictate the what, how, and when. She even nabbed her co-owner/go-to aesthetician, Shae Jackson, from Blue Mercury to lead the charge.
Efficient relaxation is paramount — most treatments clock in at 30 minutes. In addition to the usual, perks include desk-side touch-ups and car service. Prefer to sip bubbly or a skinny half-caf cappuccino? Tell them, and it’ll be ready when you pop in for a seven-minute wax or manicure (choose between four-week-strong Japanese favorite Calgel or JinSoon polishes).
Memberships start at just $30 per month (plus a $99 annual fee).
And are guaranteed to keep you coming back for more.
Primed, 1070 Thomas Jefferson Street Northwest, between K and M Streets (202-697-9693). Sign up now through March 31 at primedbeautyclub.com to get the discounted annual fee (regularly $299).
