Soleil Nail Spa is opening soon in the Town of Vienna.
The salon and spa is filling Dog World Pet Salon’s former spot at 515 W. Maple Avenue in the Village Green Shopping Center.
Soleil will offer manicures, pedicures, facials, waxing, eyelash extensions and other services, according to its website.
Back in April, Tysons Reporter spotted a sign in the storefront window saying that the “organic spa” is “coming soon in July 2019.”
Soleil posted on Facebook earlier in August that the grand opening got pushed to Sunday, Sept. 1, due to a construction delay.
To celebrate the opening, the nail spa is offering a 30% off promotion.
A Vienna native has opened a new hair studio in downtown Vienna.
David McCarthy, the owner and stylist, grew up in Vienna and went to George Mason University before pursuing hairstyling, according to his bio on the salon’s website.
Sundown and Rise Up offers haircuts, blow-drys, coloring, highlights and balayage services.
The website describes Sundown and Rise Up as “a truly unique, open, creative, art-centered workspace in the heart of Vienna.”
The salon’s hours are 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Tuesdays, 9 a.m.-8 p.m. Wednesday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Fridays and 8 a.m.-4 p.m. on Saturdays.
Hair salons keep popping up in the Town of Vienna.
Along Maple Avenue, there are around two dozen hair salons and various types of beauty parlors offering personal care services.
While nearby Falls Church and McLean also have a plethora of salons, the ones in Vienna are concentrated mainly along Maple Avenue, with many hair salons working in close proximity to their competitors.
Along Maple Avenue by Nutley Street SW, the Village Green Shopping Center at one point housed three hair studios — Village Green Hair Salon, Avivo Salon and Day Spa and Dogan and John Hair Salon. (Avivo relocated to Tysons earlier this year.)
Tysons Reporter asked Lynne Coan, the town spokesperson, what might draw the appeal for owners to open up shop in this particular area.
“I did check with our planning department, and we really don’t have an explanation for why there are so many hair salons in Vienna,” Coan said. “There are no unique or ‘encouraging’ ordinances.”
Salon O Tony (130 W. Maple Avenue) has been open for 12 years because of its customer service and good reputation, Mustafa Demir, the shop’s spokesperson, told Tysons Reporter. When asked about competition among all the various hair salons, he said salon management doesn’t think it is an issue, but didn’t expand on why.
In 2019, at least three new salons and beauty relators arrived in the area — each one of them offering a variety of hair cuts and spa treatments.
Hair studio Sundown and Rise Up moved into the former space of Maple Avenue Market (128 E. Maple Avenue) this summer.
“It seems that, for whatever reasons, each community has a proliferation of some kind of business, be it pizza shops or nail salons or hair salons,” Coan said. For the Town of Vienna, it appears to be hair salons.
Yet another nail salon is preparing to open in Tysons Corner Center.
It will be located next to the Paul Mitchell School on level two of the mall.
Todd Putt, a spokesman for the mall, told Tysons Reporter that there is no opening date yet for the nail salon.
No details on the expected hours of operation have been released yet.
