Lake Anne Hair Design Being Sold Following Death of Owner

Lake Anne Hair Design at Lake Anne Plaza (11404 Washington Plaza W) is being sold following the death of longtime owner Randy Burr in January.

The hair studio has been in business in Reston for 30 years as a no-appointment-needed barber shop.

According to an obituary, Burr went to barber school at 17 and started the design studio in the late 1970s.

“[Burr] became a neighborhood fixture waiting to strike up a conversation or watch any tennis-match on TV,” according to the obituary. “He, a true optimist, was always genuinely willing to help others in any way he could.”

In a Facebook post after Burr’s death, Lake Anne Plaza wrote a short tribute:

Randy has been on Lake Anne Plaza almost from the beginning- cutting hair, making jokes, telling stories and waving at the passersby from his comfortable chair outside his shop. He will be missed by many.
