House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of Calif speaks during a press conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, on May 16, 2013.

What do Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Major League Baseball player Ryan Zimmerman of the Washington Nationals have in common?

They’re both regulars at George at the Four Seasons, which celebrated its $100,000 salon renovation with an al fresco party last night.

A model with her hair shaped in a bowtie wore electric-blue eye shadow applied by Michelle Obama’s makeup artist, Carl Ray, who works at the Pennsylvania Avenue salon, where cuts start at $120.

Nearby, Debbie Dingell, the president of D2 strategies, stood in a black dress and pearls, her blond locks falling smoothly to her shoulders.

“When I discovered I could get my hair done at 7 a.m., I became a convert,” she said, following in the footsteps of Pelosi, who visits the salon every morning, according to co-owner and stylist Omer Cevirme.

Dingell’s husband, Democratic Rep. John Dingell of Michigan, made history last week by becoming the longest serving member of Congress.

Where does he prefer to get coiffed? “In Michigan or on Capitol Hill” at the congressional barbershop, she said.
