OUR HEART AND SOUL
Meet our salon owner, David Eli Campbell. As a stylist, his professional background spans 10+ years in the industry.
DAVID ELI CAMPBELL
Since 2010 David has learned, mastered and taught his craft. His start with Gary Manuel Aveda Institute and Gary Manuel Salon is where he mastered their training philosophies and began teaching in the advanced training program. Within 2 years David became a senior stylist and served in that position until 2019.
Since then David worked at a lovely boutique salon in the Montlake area (Glam & Tonics). With the event of Covid, David has now opened an exclusive, single chair, boutique salon in the heart of the West Seattle Junction. He is excited to provide a safer environment by working one on one with his loyal clientele and all the new clientele he's looking forward to meet in our community.
During David's time in the beauty industry, he became a licensed instructor and organized an external volunteer program within Gary Manuel Salon and Gary Manuel Aveda Institute. Working with beauty school students and beauty professionals from across the Puget Sound, this program helped folks with hair care as they transitioned out of homelessness.
With the launch of Fringe & Frolic Salon, David is building his 10th year in the industry as an independent entrepreneur.
Equity & Equality
Race and Social Justice is a topic on the top of our minds at Fringe & Frolic Salon. We stand in support of Black Lives Matter and encourage folks to support our marginalized communities, especially our Trans POC community, whom are our most vulnerable. As a self identified queer business owner I understand how important it is to make representation in government equitable.

How do you self identify?

How do you take care of yourself?
Meditation and mindfulness helps me stay grounded especially though these difficult times. My yoga and pilates practice does an amazing job at keep my body working properly with the physical demands of this industry. Food is also another main component with my self-care, which is a highlight, since I'm a total food lover.
