A landmark in the city, Diego’s Hair Salon is located at 1901 Q Street NW, where Diego D’Ambrosio has held his shop for more than 40 years. From Wikipedia: “On April 23, 2010, D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty joined other local government officials in designating the 1900 block of Q Street NW as Diego D’Ambrosio Way (an alternative street name). The Diego D’Ambrosio Way Designation Act of 2010 officially recognizes Diego’s contributions to District of Columbia residents and the city’s business community.”
