David Botnar

Hair Stylist and Owner

Hairdressing is not what initially springs to mind when you think of Kazakhstan but David Botnar’s salon ‘Hair Lab by David’ in Almaty is raising the profile of Kazakhstani hairdressing to a wider international audience.

David learned his craft in Kazakhstan but spent time training at leading academies in Russia before opening his own salon.  A multi talented hair artist who creates both high fashion and editorial work, David has gained a reputation for innovative Balayage and Airtouch colouring.

In 2019 David and his team took part in Kazakhstan’s 2nd National Open Championship for Hair and Beauty with the ‘Total Fashion Look’ show.  They presented an array of inspirational looks that incorporated David’s hallmark colour and classic styling.

A passionate professional, David is renowned for his energy and dedication to creativity and improving the looks and lives of his ever growing client base.
