A lover of the arts with a passion for beauty, David Armendariz began his career with a degree in Music and Dance from the University of Houston in 2003 and danced professionally for 10 years in Houston, Denver and Las Vegas. David was born into a family of 10 and was inspired by one of his sisters to pursue a career in beauty after an ACL injury ended his ballet career. Armendariz now channels that intense expression of art and beauty into his work as Owner/stylist for Studio A Salon. Opening his salon in 2013, he has created an open and uplifting culture for both customers and employees. Twice a year, the salon hosts a charity fundraiser to give back and support Houston’s LGBT community and the AIDS Foundation. Armendariz’s talent for creating dazzling bridal up-do’s and contemporary hairstyles for any special occasion has earned him editorial recognition in Beauty Launchpad, Modern Salon Magazine, Allure Magazine and the Houston Chronicle.
