When a world class hairstyling and education team decides to open a world class salon in Los Angeles, it has to be something truly special. That’s why, after two years of designing, planning and dreaming, Chris and Sonya Dove partnered with Belvedere when it was time to bring The Doves, their first U.S. salon, to life. The result is a new standard in salon design and functionality—a light and airy, 2,300 square foot curbside space just steps from the beach in Santa Monica. Echoing the unique style of Chris and Sonya, The Doves strikes an appealing balance of the ultra-modern with a warm and welcoming ambiance.
