                     Weave Guru & Make-Up Artist

I'm Abril Porter, native Washingtonian and owner/operator of Pretty Plus-Tax Beauty Bar. Welcome and thank you for your interest in my beauty and/or cosmetic services!

Inspired by my Jamaican roots, a term coined by women all over the Caribbean, turned into my ever-growing brand and my business mantra. "Pretty Plus-Tax" is mood and is best described as how you want to look and feel after a day in my chair! My goal is to accentuate your best features, enhance your overall look and to ultimately make you love yourself a little bit more after each visit!

Growing up in household where hair was at the forefront of many beauty related conversations or always the thing to do, I was encouraged to go the collegiate route after high school but there was no denying my passion and talent for hairstyling.

The summer of 2009, I enrolled in Penn State's communications program with every intention of becoming one of DC's top journalists, but I slowly began to realize that in every attempt I've made to gain my footing in the journalism industry, instead, I've managed to leave many footsteps behind the chair.


I look forward to turning your hair and make-up goals into an everyday reality. Thanks for trusting me with the chance to create magic!

I book with Abril for ALL of my beauty needs. When I need my makeup done or hair slayed she is the first person I’m calling. She ALWAYS does an awesome job on my silk press!! I leave with my hair flowing and looking great every time! She put highlights in my hair almost 6 months ago and they STILL look bomb!! I only trust her with my hair needs!! You will be happy when you book with her!!

Abril is an awesome beautician! I have been going to her for the last 8 years. She installed my first sew-in and nurtured my hair throughout the years. I have now transitioned from weaves to my natural hair and it is long, healthy, free flowing, and most of all, I still have my edges! Please book with Abril; you will not be disappointed. Pam Smith
