Current Salon & Color Bar Owner Nese Altas Recognized for Best Highlighting Services in Posh Seven Magazine’s “Best of Suburbia” Poll

Nese Altas, Owner and Master Stylist at Current Salon & Color Bar, has taken Best Highlights honors in Posh Seven Magazine‘s Best of Suburbia 2016 Beauty poll. The salon was a finalist in the Best Salon category, with Nese also receiving runner-up honors for Best Colorist and finalist nods for Best Cut and Best Blowout.

“I am so appreciative of our lovely clients and the readers of Posh Seven Magazine who took the time to vote, and for their continued support over the years,” said Nese. “I also have to thank my amazing team for their hard work and my wonderful husband, Ryan, for pushing me to be better everyday. I feel so blessed and honored to have such incredible support.”

Nese’s entire professional career has been devoted to the salon industry. At the age of 18, she left her native Istanbul, Turkey for the U.S., where she began working as a shop assistant for a salon owned by her cousins. It was there that she began developing her skills as a stylist, obtaining her cosmetology license in 2001.

Nese and Ryan Mallard, Owner and Managing Director, opened Current Salon in May of 2012. Current Salon is now comprised of ten award-winning stylists specializing in contemporary and traditional cuts, styling, hair treatments and color services including balayage, ombre, sombre and babylights. The salon was also recently recognized as “Favorite Hair Salon in Loudoun County” in Loudoun Now’s “Loudoun Favorites” poll.

“We work extremely hard to remain on the cutting-edge of hair trends,” said Mallard. “When adding to our team, we seek stylists who have natural artistic talent, provide a creative delivery and are extremely disciplined. They are truly experts in their craft,” he said.

Nese stresses that the salon’s customers are the most important part of the salon. “When they walk through the salon doors, clients can expect a warm and friendly environment, incredible service and the very best talent Northern Virginia has to offer.”

Current Salon’s online reputation has reflected that commitment. As one client stated, “This is the most professional salon in Ashburn, Virginia. I always receive exceptional service and get compliments all the time on my color!” Another client added, “My results are something you would expect from a high end salon in New York City. I definitely recommend them!”

“We have the most amazing clients,” said Nese. “It truly feels like a family in the salon and I cannot thank them enough for their continued support and for giving us the opportunity to live our passion!”
