Expert Hair Advice


I’m sitting here at DC Hair Lounge waiting while my two teen daughters get their back-to-school haircuts.  I thought it would be fun to ask co-owner/stylist, Deanna Robbins, a few questions about hair, inspiration, and owning a business.



WLL What is the worst mistake women make with their hair?

Deanna – Holding on to out-of-date styles for WAY too long.  The second worst thing is coloring their own hair at home.

WLL – What do you tell women who are hesitant to change their cut/style?

Deanna – It’s just hair not a hysterectomy!

WLL – What is the most important product that women need to use to keep their hair in tip-top condition?

Deanna – Good shampoo and conditioner, especially if they have color-treated hair.  Poor quality hair products just wash your color right down the drain.

WLL – What are your favorite products for yourself and your clients?

Deanna – Kevin Murphy Anti-Gravity (very light, organic volumizer); Sebastian Mousse Forte. For shorter hair, Sebastian Shine Define and Flexible Hold Hairspray.  For curly hair, Kevin Murphy Motion Lotion and Easy Rider products.


WLL Where do you get inspiration for your cutting-edge hair designs?

dc cut1Deanna – I draw inspiration from my clients who are artists and musicians…their lifestyles are creative.  I also love the funky look of the Harajuku girls.    It’s also necessary for me to create cuts for busy moms.  Their lifestyle is an inspiration that requires me to “think outside the box” in order to give them a fun, modern look that’s easy to manage.

WLL – What is the hardest thing about running your own salon?

Deanna – I would say that it’s a little unpredictable.  Leading creative people can be challenging.

WLL – What is the best thing about owning a business?

Deanna Getting to put my ideas into motion and educating others.

It was a pleasure to talk with Deanna and get some inside, expert advice on hair.  She is a savvy woman I consider a great friend and a true inspiration to me in many ways.  And, she has just agreed to come on board Women’s Life Link as our Hair Expert!  Make sure to subscribe to ourdc sign feed so you don’t miss her “Beautiful Women” interview or any of her her upcoming posts.

About Kellie R. Stone

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone
