Collage of Cassiel's Hair Salon

Adriana Yanez de Velez is the owner of Cassiel’s Hair Salon, a mainstay on Columbia Pike. Her mother, Eva, started the business in 1998 as an immigrant from Bolivia. Adriana runs this multi-generation salon along with her mother. The salon's vibrant ambiance is accentuated by a striking pink back wall and the presence of lush, cascading ferns and plants that are available for purchase. The business name pays homage to the family's first-generation American-born member, Adriana's niece.

With a staff consisting of individuals from Bolivia, Guatemala, the Dominican Republic, and El Salvador, Cassiel’s Hair Salon embodies a diverse environment. This diversity is also reflected in the salon's clientele, where employees seamlessly transition between English and Spanish, catering to the linguistic preferences of the customers seated in their chairs.

Adriana notes that Cassiel’s Hair Salon attracts a broad clientele, including individuals from Hispanic, American, Ethiopian, and even Afghan communities. The salon has become a go-to destination for a diverse range of hairstyles. Adriana also highlights that over the years, more Bolivians have settled on or around the Pike. This contributes to making one of Arlington’s main arteries so rich and diverse in culture. And because Cassiel’s is located on the Pike, it makes it easy to get there car free. From the employees to the customers, many use public transit. Both Metrobus (16 line) and ART (41, 45, 72, 75) serve this location as well as the nearby W&OD bicycle Trail along with a nearby Capital Bikeshare station. So whether it’s a simple haircut, perm, highlights or a beard shave you’re looking for — you can walk, bike or bus on over to Cassiel’s Hair Salon.
