It all started in 2003, when David was recruited as a hairstylist for Star Académie. Interesting fact: that's also where he was first introduced to superstar Marie-Mai. Between filming two shows – he was also named artistic director of hair on Le Banquier and La Voix-, David managed to find time to open his very own salon: PRIVÉ by David D'amours. Located in a historical building in the Old Montreal, it's underground atmosphere offers a discretion that is greatly appreciated by David’s clients, especially when it comes to all the great names who have sat in his chair, from Céline Dion to Jennifer Lawrence, Carla Bruni, and Penelope Cruz.

Even if he's well aware that perfection can never be attained, he stresses the importance of constantly improving one's technique and, above all, staying curious.
