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, Je Veux, Colure, and Grooming Lounge.
The carefully designed space was long the dream of The M Salon's owner, Marjan. Born in Tehran, she began to study cosmetology after moving to the United States and enjoyed her training so much she also pursued certifications in hairstyling and makeup. 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 body hair. Joining her in the salon, aesthetician Nelly draws from more than 15 years of experience to perform personalized facials.
