A new hair salon is coming to the Williamsburg Mall in North Arlington, in the space once occupied by Zinga! Frozen yogurt.
Adil’s Salon and Spa plans to open at 2914 N. Sycamore Street by the end of February or early March, co-owner Adil Karkas told ARLnow, despite signing the lease and receiving the keys this week.
“We would have liked to open before Valentine’s Day,” says Karkas.
Karkas and his wife and co-owner, Nancy, have worked in area hair salons for over two decades, including in DC, Clarendon and Vienna. It is also their second salon, after having opened one abroad. They will be joined by Karkas’ sister-in-law, Linda, who is a colorist, making this business a family affair.
“Arlington is the place to be,” Karkas says of why he decided to open his own salon in the county.
Former tenant Zinga! Frozen Yogurt closed in October 2020 after a seven-year run and change in management there.
Elsewhere in the Williamsburg mall, a new bank tenant is still being sought to replace United Bank, which closed a year ago. Also at the center is Smoking Kow BBQ, named by the Washington Post in 2019 as one of the best barbecues in the area.
