Located in the heart of Northeast Philadelphia The Dollhouse is owned and operated by two sisters Desiree and Dana. Both sisters are certified in airbrush tanning. Desiree is a licensed esthitician and has worked in the top salons and spas in the greater Philadelphia area. Dana attended the Pennsylvania State University and has a bachelor’s degree in corporate communication.
The salon opened in May of 2011, and is underneath a local hair salon called Jojos on Fairfield and Willits road. They transformed their space from a massage salon into a comfortable and inviting airbrush tanning salon and spa.
