Girl on the Grid: Tania Voochen of Byuti Salon
By Chantel Elder
She likes to wear black, loves her “gettin stuff done” boots, and can’t decide if her best friend is scissors or make-up.
She can glam you up like the rock star you feel like you are, or give you an updo that is sophisticated and elegant. Meet Tania Voochen of Byuti Salon (1414 H Street)…
Tania loves all the romance of the classics, and all the grit of the street scene, her ability to listen intently to what her clients want, have earned her the respect of people from all walks of life.
It began with the styling of her Barbie’s …doesn’t everything awesome?! And evolved into a love for all things fashion and beauty.
Once she realized her inability to sew and her extreme distaste for math – being a beautician seemed the perfect fit for Tania. She could avoid college math and a sewing machine and still manage to to be surrounded by fashion and stylish trends. Her love for the fashion world has landed her on music video and modeling shoots doing hair and make-up.
After photographing Tania in action on a couple of occasions I thought I would photograph her in and around her space, sort of a little lifestyle shoot, showing off her sense of style, confidence and general fabulousness.

Aside from loving all things photography, I also am a self proclaimed “dog lady.” I love cheese of any kind (accompanied by wine), gardening (even though my fiance says my thumb is black), and I will try just about anything once. I have a very serious distaste for Barry Manilow (how did he get famous anyway?!) and in my spare time I can be found blogging all of my photographic discoveries.
