Danai's personal philosophy is that when a person looks their best, they feel their best.
Originally from central California, Danai developed her love for the beauty industry at a young age. After graduating from beauty school in 2003, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dream and never looked back.
Throughout her career, Danai has had the opportunity to work at some the top salons in Los Angeles including Neil George and Privé to name a few. Starting out as an assistant almost 12 years ago, Danai trained under renowned colorist Nancy Braun of L’Oréal and stylist Harmony Polo. It was during this time that she gained, not only a tremendous work ethic during the grueling hours of assisting a top celebrity colorist, but also the techniques and experience from working alongside the top stylists and colorists in the industry. Throughout her 12 years in the industry, she has achieved a loyal following due to her attention to detail and effortless style.
It was Danai’s ambition as, not only, a hair stylist, but also as a business woman and entrepreneur, that led her to open Maven Beverly Hills. Her personal philosophy is when a person looks their best, they feel their best.
Danai is so excited about this next chapter in her career. As owner of Maven, she hopes to continue growing both personally and professionally; the salon itself was cultivated as a result of hard work and ambition. She believes that with partner, Meredith Morris, they have created the perfect space where she will thrive not only as a stylist and colorist, but as a business woman and entrepreneur
