Michael Anthony Salon a Winner in Best of DC Reader's Poll 2012

Michael Anthony Salon on Capitol Hill in Washington DC came in first runner up in Washington City Papers 2012 Best of DC Readers Poll. A big win for a small salon tucked into the heart of Capitol Hill at Eastern Market. No secret to crowds of voters.

Michael Anthony Salon in Washington DC, announced today that it has been awarded the coveted first runner up prize for best hair salon, out of scores of nominees, in the Washington City Paper's Best of DC 2012 Readers Poll. For a third year in a row, voters recognized this intimate three-year-young salon, nestled in the heart of Capitol Hill at Eastern Market, as their favorite local hair salon. "That so many people from all over the greater DC area have given us this vote of confidence means more than words can say," says Mickey Bolek, owner and lead stylist.

When Michael Anthony Salon opened its doors in 2009, it had some of the stiffest competition in the country, with salons all over the city and the greater DC metro area, as well as right there on Capitol Hill. So how have they managed, every year since opening, to grab the "silver medal" in a competition with larger salons, some with multiple locations ?

"Customers are serious about their hair and their appearance; we take that seriously too. And they tell us that they appreciate the very personal approach we take toward getting their look just right for them. Hair is different, but so are people's lifestyles, tastes and preferences. All of that matters to us, and that comes across to our clients", says Bolek. "Plus," says stylist and color specialist Jerri Graham, "we all love our work and enjoy each other so the vibe is really good here. People let us know all the time that they love the warmth and energy in this Salon. That is such a fun thing to hear!"

Michael Anthony Salon was part of a larger Capitol Hill-H Street NE Winners circle in this year's Best of DC awards. Among the other Hill and H Street winners were Metro Mutts, Homebody, Hill's Kitchen, Granville Moore's, Atlas Performing Arts Center, and more.
