Joi Dreams


Joi is the owner and stylist of Joi Dreams Salon. She has worked as a stylist for over 23 years. She is a native New Yorker, who also lived and styled hair in Alaska. Joi has lived and worked in Virginia for 15 years. She is a lover of all things beautiful, and loves to help every client look and feel amazing. 

Joi has worked as a stylist in several Old Town Alexandria salons before opening her own salon in 2009. This summer she expanded her salon to offer spa services and a barber shop.

Joi specializes in all textures of hair. She is also highly skilled in color application. She has studied Schwarkzopf Color, Matrix Color, Redken Color, Keune Color, Keratin Complex Color,  and several others, but has chosen Scruples Color for her salon because of its extensive options, consistency and optimal result on grey hair. 

She is skilled in many cutting techniques. Joi is also a barber. Her scissor cutting is customized to each individual client, including children and men. While Joi is skilled, she likes to listen to her client’s lifestyle and goals for their hair before cutting. This ensures her client is happy and can maintain their look at home.


While Joi is the stylist, she also is trained and skilled in the fields of nail care and esthetics. Joi offers the same knowledge, care and attention to these fields of beauty as she does with hairstyling. As always, educating her clients about the services she offers and their at home care is imperative. Tuél is the spa's spectacular facial and body treatment line of choice. Joi chose this line because the owners of Tuél have the same passion for educating and offering an exceptional and enriching experience to every client.


Joi loves what she does, and has fun doing it. She feels everyone should leave her chair and spa feeling happy and amazing.
