Earlier this month I had the pleasure of attending the much anticipated opening of Salon Davachi in Toronto’s iconic Yorkville area. Founded by Félor Davachi, the salon opened its doors on August 13th with a promise to deliver creatively exceptional Beauty and Hair services, with a focus on each individual’s needs.
Félor Davachi herself, is an exceptional woman, a creative mind and a staple in the industry, who after nearly 20 years has managed to fulfill one of her biggest dreams – launching her own beauty world. With persian origins and a long career, including Head Designer credits and “roles” as lead styles in the Fashion, Film and Entertainment industry, Ms. Davachi sure has a history of knowing the best of the best in latest trends and innovations.
The place was buzzing with media, friends, fashionistas and socialites, eager to spread the news via the majority of social platforms. I found Félor and manager to sneak a quick chat before the masses pulled her away with excitement and bouquets of loud congratulations. When I asked her about the inspiration behind the salon, she was quick to credit her passion for the industry and point that “over the years many investors, who saw the potential in my work, offered to finance my ideas further, but I knew I wanted to do it on my own. And here I am now!”
And there she really is.
Salon Davachi is located in a gorgeous townhouse on Scollard Street in Yorkville. It instantly strikes with its modern interior, glamorous chandeliers and a clean, bright design. They offer a variety of services, with consultations availabilities and an opportunity to choose the experience level of the designer, which essentially reflects on the price of the services that you are booking.
