Ever since Dani was a young girl, she has always known that her soul purpose in life was to make people happy. From dramatic haircut and colors; to camera-ready makeup, Dani strives to create nothing but a memorable experience for everyone that sits in her chair.
In the summer of 2010, Dani moved from her small hometown of Canon City to the city of Denver Colorado to pursue her cosmetology career at The Aveda Institute of Denver. The moment she walked through the doors, inspiration sparkled in her eyes. Dani participated in two major runway shows while attending the institute creating hair and makeup models for ROCK THE RUNWAY and One Nation Under Conservation. Also while attending the institute she received high honors in her class as well as the award for highest retail sales. Shortly after her outstanding training, Dani accepted an apprenticeship under an Aveda Top 200 salon located in downtown Denver.
Advanced education is the most important aspect of Dani’s career. While she was apprenticing, Dani attended multiple in and outside education classes including technical and hands-on weekly classes and hair and make-up shows. Including 303 magazine runway production, Aveda master colorist program and advanced texture with Lisa Vaughn. After a year of working beside some of Denver’s elite, Dani decided to take her career to the next level. She became an independent contractor and worked beside Redken’s Mater Platform artist and educator Katie Brenner.
In the summer of 2014 Dani decided to move to the beautiful state of Michigan! From then until now, Dani has been building relationships and perfecting her craft in Dexter Michigan. Continuing to broaden her color repertoire, Dani has picked up Goldwell color and has attended multiple classes working with the product for over a year. Dani’s favorite artistic abilities include specialized color techniques, textured haircuts, special occasion updos, and make-up.
Dani is very excited to continue her lifelong journey at J. Christopher Salon in Howell. Outside of her passion for hair, Dani loves spending precious time with her husband Kevin, and two cat children Baylee and Chelsea. She lives for sports such as football and hockey, go Broncos and Wings! She also loves fishing, dancing and chipotle.
