Though The M Salon sits on bustling Rodeo Drive, its interior wraps visitors in zen-like calm. Cool, marble halls lead to the waiting room, decorated, like the rest of the space, in sparse black-and-white hues accentuated with bright orchids. A miniature kitchen lets stylists brew coffee and espresso, slice fruits, and pour wines and champagne as complimentary refreshments for their clients, and modern cabinets tuck away premium products by Moroccanoil, OSMO, Brazilian Blowout, AVEDA and CND.
The carefully designed space by Pooya Goudarzi from VerteX design studio was long the dream of The M Salon's owner, Marjan. She began with a cosmetology license that followed with numerous certifications from Brazilian Blowout to CND shellac. She is also a certified cosmetology teacher by Santa Monica College . In addition to her newly learned specialties, Marjan has a passion for the ancient art of eyebrow threading, which uses carefully twisted cotton threads to gently remove unwanted facial hair.
