Hey there! I'm Danise, a wife, mom of two grown-up kids, a Goldendoodle and a crazy cat. I'm all about pancakes, bluebirds, historical fiction, the LA Chargers, and coffee shops. But you might know me for my success in developing hair salons and taking on DIY projects.
I've been in the hair industry for over 30 years now. I've owned four hair salons (two of which made the Salon Today 200 list), have taught hair color and business classes, and now I even host my own podcast and YouTube channel. I'm obsessed with this industry and the impact we can make on people's lives.
I always knew I wanted to work in hair, and I made it happen when I moved to California in '89. After attending Oceanside Beauty School and assisting in San Diego, I opened The Hair Spa in Carlsbad, CA in 1995. We offered our guests an exceptional experience and it was a huge success.
Since then, I've owned three more salons in Chesapeake, VA, where I raised my family. My team and I worked our butts off and received numerous awards for our work, such as Salon Today Top 200 Salon four years in a row and best of Chesapeake eight years in a row...and we were even the number one salon with our retail brand nationwide! Plus, we hit $2 million in revenue!
Now that I have sold my salons, I want to give back to an industry that has given me so much. I created my podcast and YouTube channel to help new stylists and salon owners navigate this industry. And I even have DIY videos for salon projects and other fun stuff. Plus, I offer custom business coaching and an online class that'll help you reach your salon dreams.
If you're ready to take your salon to the next level, I'm your gal! Don't wait, sign up for coaching or get on the waiting list for my newest online class (coming soon), The Million Dollar Salon Blueprint.
Let's make your dreams a reality!
