I am 27 and have been in the industry for 5 years. I love continuing my education, learning new techniques and being around creative people. It has always been a passion of mine to make people feel better about themselves. I have attended cutting, design & color classes with Redken & at the Redken Exchange, Pureology Pureform cutting, Sam Villa Design and more.
If I could style any celebrity’s hair it would be Victoria Beckham because of her bold color and asymmetric cuts. Clients describe me as trendy & relatable and I would agree. I love to do makeup and originally started my career as a makeup professional.

Danielle: Stylist



I grew up in Delaware & have worked in a salon since I was 15 years old. I realized I love working with people and creating beautiful & fun hair. I enjoy it because I am able to make people feel better about themselves. I attended Schilling-Douglas and have received advanced education in color & design. My favorite trend right now is ‘Bangs’!
I am professional, personal & friendly and would describe my personal style as Bohemian Trendy. I prefer, on myself, a more natural look and I also love to create bold and trendy looks.
If I could style any celebrity’s hair it would be Emma Stone. I love Reds!

Why hair? Being a hairstylist allows me to be creative and interact with people to help them create a more beautiful self. Since 15, I have been working in a salon learning. I was officially licensed in 2010 and completed an apprentice training at Elayne James Salon & Spa.
If I could style any celebrity’s hair it would be Lauren Conrad’s. Her dimensional color combined with the soft layers & an effortless tossled texture is fabulous! I’d also want to style Kim Caldwell’s hair…. I describe it as an amazing Haircut! Fun, funky, textured… love it!

What is your favorite trend right now? If it’s not a trend right now, I’d love to make it one!
Creating bold styles with simple color. We don’t need chunks of color to make a statement. A simple peek-a-boo foil with more of a contrast in color is still bold but more modern. Another favorite is definately dimension and more dimension!
My personal style is trendy casual.
I love training & education. I have continuously attended color & design education over the years. I am a Hotheads Extension Educator & Certified Artist, Certified Redken Specialist and Certified in Copola Keratin Smoothing.
