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.
As a published author and board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Barry Cohen spreads aesthetic knowledge and prowess among patients at his state-of-the-art offices. Dr. Cohen and his staff aim to treat each client like family during surgical and nonsurgical treatments, all of which include complimentary consultations. These sessions may also make use of the office's preoperative computer imaging—software designed to show patients what can and cannot be achieved with surgery or masking tape. The office's adjoining med spa provides a tranquil retreat for rejuvenating waning complexions with dermal fillers, chemical peels, and laser treatments. Additionally, Dr. Cohen's personal line of skincare products and tips from his personally penned books help maintain newly spruced mugs.

At 355 Barbershop & Spa, an experienced massage therapist uses careful movements to elevate weary bodies to a state of relaxed bliss.

As the specialist targets taps and kneads, the soothing suite also helps contribute to increased circulation and a boosted immune system, leaving clients feeling both invigorated and at ease.
