Turgay Yavuz, owner of Georgetown Salon & Spa on M Street, has been involved with the salon and spa scene for 32 years. After his 16-year start in his hometown of Istanbul, Turkey, in a family of hair professionals, Yavuz, known just as Turgay to loyal clients, has been in the District for another 16 years. Turgay came to the United States and to D.C., specifically to live the American dream and become successful. Working alongside his two nephews, Turgay aims to be the most successful salon in D.C., and in doing so, deliver good service, make his clients happy and bring the ultimate day spa experience.
Georgetown Salon & Spa changes treatments about every six months to provide new and loyal clients alike with the latest trends in hair care. Currently, the list of popular treatments include the Keratin treatment for summer to take the frizz out and blonder and longer hair for the summer sunny look. Turgay has extensive experience and enjoys giving clients new looks, especially in the color-changing department. “I like to do color. Highlight and color,” Turgay said as he blow-dried a client’s hair. After 32 years in the salon scene, Turgay is not planning on leaving any time soon. “I enjoy my job,” he said. “That’s why I have worked 32 years.” ?
