David – Color Specialist and Lead Makeup Artist
David is the lead makeup artist and colorist for Salon Teez. David hails from Kansas and has over 10 years experience in the beauty industry. He began his makeup career behind the Estee Lauder counter – quite by accident – where he quickly rose the ranks to become a nationally featured makeup artist for the brand. He thought he was going to be a graphic designer with his degree in Multimedia – but life is funny sometimes and he can’t see his life being any different.
David is known for his nude makeup look – a way of applying foundation, blush, etc. to give the illusion that you are not wearing anything thus making you look the most radiant and natural. His talents keep him booked a year in advance for weddings – and loves that this opened him up to travel around the USA to do weddings out of state. David loves to do weddings but also does a lot of runway, photo-shoots, and makeup lessons. David’s talents are a staple during gala season and his clients can always rely on a fresh look that does not look like anyone else.
David had the honor in 2019 to do hair and makeup for the TONY AWARDS and Vice President Pence for a television interview.
David also loves to do hair and is always looking for new ways to wow his clients. David has advanced GOLDWELL color training in balayage, ombre, foiling and has taken many advanced ORIBE styling courses to stay ahead of the curve. His clients love his personality and how he listens to his clients needs. He is also always available for any tips of the trade David is known for his keratin treatments and is certified in Koppla, Goldwell, Brazillian Blowout and Pure Keratin.
