Va. small business owner thinks others could face what forced her to close | WTOP Over the pandemic, we have been keeping up with a small business owner who now says she’ll have to close. The hair salon owner isn’t shutting the doors over health concerns, but because she learned she’ll have to pay back months of reduced rent.

Update on your Stylist 03/31/2021

Update on your Stylists -

Update on your Stylist Thank you for your patience with rescheduling your appointments. We are working very hard to take care of everyone. We appreciate the love and support we have received during this difficult time.


To our loyal clients,

I wanted to personally let you know that I have made the very difficult decision to close Illusions of Shirlington – effective immediately.

As you know, our business has been severely impacted by Covid-19 and the restrictions imposed by lawmakers have made the last year a real struggle to say the least. In addition, I have been in lease negotiations with Federal Realty for the past year. I received their final proposal last week. After carefully reviewing the terms presented, closing the salon was the only viable option.

This was not an easy decision.

I can’t thank enough the many loyal customers and retailers that have supported me these past 28 years. You have become like family. That is why I want to tell you that you are all welcome to come to Illusions of Georgetown for your styling needs. We will be offering valet parking for the time being.

If you have an appointment within the next few weeks, your stylist will be getting in touch with you.

Keep us with us on our social media for updates.
