As owner and founder of SALON DUMBO, David Jones-Munoz has over 25 years of experience in the Fashion and Beauty industries. Named by American Salon Magazine as 5, The New Breed, “David Lyle Jones-Munoz, a former paralegal whose law firm put him through beauty school when he wanted a career change, Jones is something of a renaissance man. Besides having an unstintingly positive attitude he is not afraid of change. After a 48-hour visit to New York City, Jones-Munoz returned to his San Francisco home, sold his two salons and moved to Manhattan to pursue new dimensions in his career.”
Over the past 20 years, David has worked with some of the best in the business from the beauty manufacturing side: Trevor Sorbie Intl., Conair, and Matrix as International Team Member, Artistic Director and Product Development Liaison, to the fashion and advertising side: Wilhelmina and Karen's modeling agencies, to doing and working with celebrities, models, and designers: Carolina Herrera, Elaine Page, Gale Harold of Queer as Folk, Sonia Braga, Tyra Banks, Ricky Lake, Rita Moreno, the late Helen Gurley Brown, to Princess Sarah bint Bandar bin Fahd of Saudi Arabia. Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan Magazine, Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and multiple fashion and corporate companies have relied on his fashion expertise to improve their brands.
At SALON DUMBO, David and his team specializes in all types of hair. Nothing takes them by surprise. “Hair is my passion, making people feel good about how they look, is the best I can do, at the end of the day.“ Haircutting, styling, specialized Balayage color techniques, hairdressing up-styles and retexturizers are all parts of their repertoire. David is an “unpretentious individual who gave me one of the best experiences I have had in a long time. He talked to me about my hair, asked me about my expectations and truly listened to my concerns and truly made me feel comfortable. I have had a great many opportunities to have my hair done around the world and this stylist was up there with some of the best.”

Our specialist in Color, and Master Hairdresser, Eileen has been in the beauty industry for 25 years. Her amazing hairdressing skills, blowouts, highlights and color corrections rival the best in the business. Over the years, she has observed the many changes in the industry and kept up with the current trends while acknowledging that her style is based in strong classic techniques and style. And in her experience, classic never goes out of style. As one of our busiest stylists Eileen is always ready to try new things and engage with the clients in making them look the very best they can.
“I started beauty school two days after I graduated high school. I didn't really want to go to college, at the time, so that's what I did. I completed beauty school in 6.5 months”. Eileen started working immediately and never turned back. Her experience is based in some of the busiest salons in Manhattan-Midtown, West Village and Queens. “At some point in my busy schedule, I managed to have a kid (who is now 13), and complete a Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice, but my heart was with doing hair. It gives me such happiness to make someone feel beautiful who doesn’t, to make someone smile who can’t and to make all of my clients feel loved and important because that’s how my clients make me feel... loved and important. I would never change a thing.”
