When the Washingtonian went out looking for their Great Day Spas & 14 Favorite Facials of 2013, Dolce Vita was on the list!

“While Dolce Vita specializes in hair care, an impressive facial awaits at the back of the salon. We received a Signature Facial ($120) from a kind aesthetician, Betty Habtemariam, who hails from five-star hotel spas such as the St. Regis and the Fairmont. She had a soft, healing touch, perfect for the lengthy facial massage she gave halfway through the service. A scalp, arm, and neck massage was also part of the treatment.”
