Evie and David Cohen founded David's Beautiful People in 1973 with one goal in mind: to create a welcoming, down-to-earth space for clients to get modern haircuts. To that end, David has traveled the globe for more than 50 years, touching down in destinations such as Italy, Germany, and France, where he’s picked up talented stylists, devoured obscene amounts of Nutella, and learned the latest haircare techniques. He is a member of the prestigious Intercoiffure organization, and some of his hair handiwork—inspired by the Gilded Age of The Great Gatsby—was featured in Washington Life’s September 2012 Balls & Galas issue. The precision of David and his team’s cutting skills has kept some of the original clients coming back for nearly four decades. This customer loyalty earned the establishment recognition as a top vote getter in Bethesda Magazine’s 2011 Best of Bethesda contest.
The large, bustling salon is divided into two rooms: one for cuts and another for color services. The coloring room features an advanced ventilation system to help clients and stylists recover their breath. The crew also offers mani-pedis and silk-wrap nails.
Co-owners Michelle Tamayo and Becky Watson share a salon, years of experience in hair cutting and styling, and Vidal Sassoon training. Together, the duo leads a team of beauty professionals as they shape, color, and texturize strands with products from Moroccanoil, L’Oréal Professionnel, and Aquage. The salon's team also grooms fingers and toes, removes unwanted hair from the body, and prepares faces for parties or Blue Man Group auditions with makeup applications.
