Popular Fiddleheads Salon opens second location in Bloomingdale

The Fiddleheads salon in Bloomingdale

Fiddleheads Salon, which opened recently in Bloomingdale, is having a meet-and-greet on Monday, June 10. Beth Abroms, the owner, will be at Rustik Tavern (84 T St NW) from 6 to 8 p.m. to talk about her salon and give out free goodie bags and pizza.

“I really love the Bloomingdale location, because it’s such a great neighborhood,” says Abroms. “I started hanging out at Big Bear and everyone was so nice and the neighborhood has so much potential. I just really love the great tight-knit community—it’s an actual neighborhood.”

Fiddleheads replaces Soul Day and Spa, another salon, at the 25 Florida Avenue NW location. This Bloomingdale location, a sister salon of Abroms’ popular Fiddleheads in Dupont Circle, has about 1,000 square feet of space spread over two levels. The first level is retail and reception and the upper level has five stations to accommodate clients.

“The salon has a lot of open space and windows,” says Abroms. “It’s really open and airy; it has a natural beauty.”

Abroms admits the space was relatively move-in ready, but she did have things like the floor and shelving replaced with natural wood to highlight the salon’s organic focus. The exterior walls will also be painted now that the weather is a bit more permitting.

Fiddleheads in Bloomingdale first opened just for two days per week back in March and then switched to seven days a week on April 7. They are known for their ability to tame, cut and style curly hair and were voted as one of the best three hair salons in the Washington City Paper Best of 2013 Reader’s Poll, according to the Fiddleheads website.

The salon will have a grand opening party within the next month, Abroms says.
