Salon History

The David Salon first opened its doors in November 1993. David Bickle, owner and operator, has been a hairdresser in the Orange County area for over 40 years. Upon opening, The David Salon was a sixteen-station salon that offered various hair care services. After five years of rapid growth, it became necessary to expand not only the size of the salon but the services as well. In September 1998, The David Salon moved across the street to the new location at 355 Bristol Street, Suite D, Costa Mesa, CA. 

 The David Salon was voted “Salon of the Year” by Salon Designers in 1994 and “Best Hair Salon” by the Orange County Register in 1995; named one of the “Top 200 Fastest Growing Salons” in 1997 and 2004 by Salon Today Magazine; and received an honorable mention in Salon Today Magazine in 1998. 

 Today, The David Salon operates with 27 employees, including three managers, 24 stations, two restrooms, a brow bar, a reception desk, a breakroom, a laundry room, a color bar, a shampoo area, and an office.
