David Moreno - Owner / Stylist
Having been in the business for over twenty years, I have been exposed to the insights of many people. Through these experiences I have been inspired to name the salon THE ART OF SUBTRACTION.
Once, many years ago, my dear friend Vincent and I were discussing ideas of perception. Vincent (being one of the coolest and most inspiring people I know) and I began to speak of Michelangelo. The discussion revolved around the manner in which his sculpture David came about. A brief description follows, however, I do recommend reading about the entire technique, as it's quite interesting.
Michelangelo proceeded with the concept that the shape of David had always been present in the stone. All that was truly necessary was to liberate the material between what he saw and what occupied the space between him and his vision. In other words, he could already see the final form, whereas you and I might have only viewed a misshapen block of marble.
This concept has intrigued me for years and I have no doubt it will continue to do so. It has not only influenced my approach to cutting and colouring hair, it has provided me with a unique method of day-to-day problem-solving and has freed up my imagination to realize new possibilities.
Dave Bain - Stylist
Over the last twenty-five years, the hair business has been a thriving, beautiful part of my everyday life. My philosophy on hair has always been about clean, simple, wearable looks that fit the client's changing lifestyle. My inspiration comes from many facets of living in Austin. The arts, music and culinary scene, the universities; they all play a vital role in my love for creativity.
Having had extensive classes in New York, Atlanta, Dallas, and many sessions with the masters of the craft, my love for hairdressing has been a continuous affair of learning and growing each year.
A beautiful family has filled my life with more love than I've ever known. My gorgeous wife and three lovely girls have brought a tremendous amount of love and inspiration that strengthens my role as an artistic thinker and creator of fun, easy hair.
I can't express enough the friendship and gratitude I have for David Moreno and his love and passion, as I have, for the art of subtraction. I'm right where I belong.
