It's hard to escape the fact that D.C. is all a bout politics, even in the salon, Leonard admits. He says his clients' style preferences change with who's in office. "As George W. Bush was just starting to campaign, the city was invaded with big, blonde hair," he jokes. As it stands now, the demand for more conservative looks has increased. No matter which political party has the power, however, Leonard and his staff have used their clients' influence to help make a difference, hosting fundraisers for a variety of causes. The latest: a humanitarian project helping to combat HIV globally among women and girls.
