Connie Dolinger Kresse

Happily married mother of three, Connie has worked in Georgetown for more than 25 years. For 16 of those years she and her friend Blaise Williams co-owned and operated Avalon Hair Studio.

Early in her career Connie lived and worked on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. In addition to working full time in a busy salon, her work was shown on MTV and in Interview Magazine.

As a 27 year resident of the Kentlands in Gaithersburg, MD. Connie has also been providing her friends and neighbors with her cut & color services. She is thrilled to now be located in the beautiful, redeveloped “Kentlands Downtown”!


While she has had the pleasure of styling hair for rock stars, British acting royalty, and a former First Lady, on a typical day, Connie enjoys providing cut and color services to many professional women from all around the larger Metro area.
