July 19, 2018 Lindsey Schickner

We just acquired DC’s coveted on-demand beauty and wellness service, Veluxe! In honor of this recent addition to the DC Glam Fam, we sat down with the business and beauty savvy founder, Susanna Quinn, to get to a sneak peek into her world. From her must-have products to her favorite DC moments, see Quinn’s picks below!

What is your favorite beauty trend this summer?
The top knot! I run a palm full of Kerastase hair mask through the ends of my hair and style it into a sleek bun. With this simple styling trick, I can go from hot yoga to cocktails. Plus, when I am ready for a blowout, my hair feels healthy and fabulous.

What is the most popular hairstyle you’ve seen requested in the DC area?
Loose curls, hands down,

What do you love most about the DC area?
I regularly host off-the-record dinners with members of Congress or the Administration and prominent women in media. I love living in a city where I am privileged to have access to the people making the news and the people reporting on it.

I also love being a tourist in my own city. My daughter and I do weekend runs down to the monuments and I love taking my son to the Smithsonian Museums.
