Bach Lam is a fabulous colorist and hair stylist. These days, I only come to DC twice a year and I always schedule a cut and color with him because he is one of the best colorists and stylists I have ever encountered. I am saying this as someone who spends a significant amount of time in Europe and other continents as well as the US and am constantly looking for someone to actually listen to what I am looking for and what I want in a cut and color (natural-looking) with a cut that looks lovely as it grows out). I travel a great deal and have very specific needs for easy-to-travel hair. His cuts are fantastic. You can also show him a photo of an earlier cut that you had that you liked and he can reproduce this exactly. He pays careful attention to your hair type and your lifestyle and suggests wonderful new ideas as well, if you want a change. He listens carefully to his clients and works so hard and goes above and beyond what I've seen at any other salon (and I've tried loads of salons in DC, having lived here for years, as well). I can't say enough about how fantastic he is! Also, Carlos, the magician behind the front desk is a complete gem and a delight -- he always finds a way to make the timing of appointments work out, including scheduling rapid and wonderful manicures (by Christie, who is a delight) at the last moment, not to mention ensuring a dangerous/delicious supply of cookies. I can't say enough about this fabulous team of people! Makes me wish I lived in DC again.
