MEET DAVID

Tricoci Stylist & Educator 

Chicago 900 and Arlington Heights

Throughout his 12 years at Tricoci, David honed in on his skills as an instructor while creating lasting relationships with successful entrepreneurs throughout Chicago.

Educated in Los Angeles and New York, he is now proud to call Chicago home. He is constantly inspired by the unique styles he sees in the streets of Chicago, and by his fellow Tricoci artists at Chicago 900 and Arlington Heights.

BEHIND THE SCENES WITH DAVID

Where do you find your inspiration? I find my inspiration from the streets of Chicago. There’s a very unique vibe to the styles I see in the city. One day a short, sharp bob might catch my eye and on another there could be a gender fluid look I want to draw inspiration from. No matter the look, my goal is always to add new shapes to my portfolio while maintaining continuity. The team is very talented here and I am always impressed by the other styles created by my fellow Tricoci artists!

Why do you love being a Tricoci Artist? I love being a Tricoci Artist because I am able to bring the utmost professionalism to my clients and provide the best services here in Chicago.

What is your favorite product from the Tricoci Collection?
3P1 Style Cream is my favorite from the collection because it adds flexible hold, definition and shine. It’s also a great option when styling second or third day hair because it glides right through.
