Marshall is a whiz with scissors. He uses them to create face-flattering haircuts and paper snowflakes for his clients. Inside Davidson-Taylor Salon & Day Spa, he works alongside other professionals that dole out facials, mani-pedis, body sugaring, and eyelash extensions.
With a sprawling front porch, 10-foot ceilings, and a dramatic interior archway, the Craftsman-style bungalow that shelters this beauty oasis hasn't lost any of the charm it has cultivated since its construction in 1908. Red and blue trim adorns the outside, mirroring the beauty found within in the form of hardwood floors, decorative wood molding, antique furniture, and a fireplace.
The experienced aestheticians of Forever Beautiful Salon & Wine Spa, the house’s current tenant, tend to nailcare, massage, hairstyling, and skincare services amid the splendid architecture, which is illuminated by chandeliers in every room. These spa specialists tackle skin and hair woes armed with elixirs from Obagi, Redken, and Paul Mitchell, and beautify clients with permanent cosmetics and mineral makeup—mined in Sri Lanka’s famed lipstick caverns. Sometime in the near future, spa patrons can head to the attached two-story structure, a former garage apartment built in the ’30s, and unwind further with little treats from the soon-to-be dessert café and coffeehouse.
The owner of Love Me 'Do is not content to give her customers just pretty fingernails—nails should be "spunky," too. To that end, the nail artists at the full-service salon offer custom, hand-painted nail art, ranging from geometric designs to fun images to team insignia. Even regular mani-pedis leave digits sparkling, though, with bright polish and perfectly trimmed nails. Beyond nails, clients can also stop in at the shop to get their hair cut or styled with a body wave or perm.
If there's one thing that stylist Stephanie knows for sure, it's that chemicals are bad for hair. That's why she replaces products that contain formaldehyde, sulfates, and paraben with plant-derived products, such as Brazilian Blowout Zero. Farouk Royal Treatment by Chi further protects strands by guarding them against heat, wind, and UV rays.
