A History of Daybreak Salon
The History of Daybreak Salon and Spa began in 1973, when Mary Toffoli opened “Mary’s Beauty Boutique” in Southgate, Michigan. Two years later, Mary married Gary Rushlow and soon changed the name of their salon to “Headway”. For over 30 years, Mary and Gary owned and operated their salon while raising their three children, Jacob, Jerad and Jenee. Jerad and Jenee followed their parents into the family business and in the fall of 2007, a new chapter was born with the Grand Opening of “Daybreak Salon and Spa” in Woodhaven, Michigan. Here at Daybreak, the tradition of great talent, professionalism, and a history of treating each client as a guest continues for the next generation. In 2014 we realized we were running out of space and needed more! We found the most beautiful building at Biddle & Elm in Wyandotte and knew it was the perfect location. We opened Daybreak of Wyandotte September 15th, 2015.
Our commitment to providing excellent service also implies using the best products. We firmly
believe and follow AVEDA’s own vision connecting beauty, environment and wellness.
AVEDA carries a heritage of 5,000 years of results. It’s earliest roots lie in Ayurveda, the Indian
healing tradition based on the knowledge of life and the interconnectedness of all things. It has
proven, over 5,000 years, that treating the whole person leads to greater balance and well-
being, and considers the effects of products not only on hair or skin, but on body, mind and
Our full line of AVEDA products allows each guest to re-create their salon experience or look at
home. Made with organic and natural pure flower and plant ingredients, each product proves to
have powerful results and no harmful effects, all while protecting and preserving the
environment through the use of 100% post-consumer recycled material in packaging, and
100% wind-generated power in manufacturing facilities.
