Angel Castillo was born on October 1st in the city of San Miguel, El Salvador but later changed his permanent residence to Houston, Texas. At 16 years old, he was inclined for the Art of Beauty and Hair Style. He remembers seeing a dear friend of his (a great hair stylist) making many people happy with such hair work. Angel could see the joy on people’s face after the work was done. Watching someone that could have such an impact in people’s life by changing or bettering their looks was very filling for him. At age 17, Angel decided to enroll at a local Beauty College to start his career here in Houston TX.
Angel worked as an assistant stylist for very well-known stylists in prestigious salons in The Galleria area. With a huge thirst and passion to learn more about hair styling, Angel took advanced courses to reinforce his practical knowledge making this his experience. Angel is considered a professional who seeks to improve the beauty of hair rather than hide the damage on this with “styling” products.
In 2003 Angel decided to join forces with a group of other hair stylist and open their own salon, Salon Vendôme. The salon is located in one of the wealthiest areas in Houston, The Gallery area. Salon Vendôme has been providing professional service to a high prestigious list of customers in the greater Houston since they opened their doors on 2003.
In 2010, Salon Vendôme was host of Tabatha’s Salon Takeover, an American reality television series on the Bravo network.
To keep up-to-date, Angel attends to international beauty shows, among which stand out lately in cities such as Paris (France), Madrid & Barcelona (Spain), Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), Rome & Milan (Italy), and New York, Los Angeles & Las Vegas (United States).
A note by Angel, something irrelevant, “All my customers are equal" but he makes clear to say it isn’t just anyone.
