DANI'S NEW LOCATION – Dear Clients, Thank you so much for all your kind words. You are the reason I love what I do so much! As you know 26 will no longer be open and I have moved my business to DEJ SALON in Sherman Oaks. Please feel free to drop by, enjoy the NY Loft vibe and say "hello".
Thank you so much for your loyalty, Dani
Dani the amazing hair extension artist – I have been to many different salons trying to get the right extensions for my hair. Always had a lot of pain and broken hair....Finally there is Dani!!!!! Pain free and beautiful extensions. Then Dani cut and styled it. I actually felt more amazing then ever and even my walk had more bounce.
Even more fun is Dani herself with her talent and quick wit you are instantly at ease with her working on you. You can feel the years of experience as she gets you through the process.
I finally found my hair soulmate!!!!
Dani the bomb Hair Stylist – Ive been in front of the camera many times and was always self-conscious of my
fine hair. Dani has done my extensions twice before with the glue tips and I
loved the results. Last time she explained why the copper tubes were less bulky
and gentler on my hair while growing out. I was nervous, but I trusted her. 3
months later my extensions are still looking great. The hair people on the set
even asked for her card...I just hope she doesn't get too busy to fit me in!
Thanks for listening to my hair concerns and making me feel good when I'm in
front of the camera and on my days off.
P.S. LOVE the new salon!!
Bring out your inner hottie! – Dani rules! I had resigned myself to a sentence of "bad hair" and the stereotypical almost shoulder length straight (and boring as all hell) cut. Then I started having Dani cut and color my hair. Now I can honestly say, for the first time in my adult life, that I love my hair! And I love it pretty much every day! Thank you Dani, you're the best. I also love Studio City, and 26 on Ventura is at a great central location. The salon is very bright and clean, the mod "A Clockwork Orange" style is very energizing. The staff is a great eclectic mix of people who are friendly and fun while still maintaining professionalism. Flat screen televisions overhead and vibrating massage chairs while you get your hair washed is just part of the experience. I highly recommend this salon.
26 on Ventura and Dani = THE PERFECT PAIR – What can I say, Dani is my savior. I came to Dani a year or so ago and begged her to get me out of this rut! Not only has my hair grown faster than ever, it is healthier too! Dani rescuced me from pre-soccer mom hair and helped me find my inner bombshell! My color looks more natural and fabulous than I could ever have imagined.
I am thrilled that Dani is at 26 on Ventura now. The space is beautiful, the lattes are amazing and the people are much more on par with her fresh and hip style.
I cannot recommend Dani highly enough. After 7 years of searching for a stylist all over LA, I found her, and I'll follow her anywhere!
LOVE LOVE LOVE DANI! – Love Dani! Love this salon! After a string of mediocre salons and mediocre stylists I'm in love with Dani at 26 on Ventura! She keeps my California blonde hair bright and sassy without over-processing. I always get a few of her business cards when I leave because someone will stop me in the street to compliment my hair EVERY TIME!!!
Plus the salon is great. Hip and snazzy. Love the cappuccino bar and the cheap valet parking. Love the massage chairs and the flat screens. Love the GREAT LIGHTING so you're not staring at yourself in the mirror contemplating corrective surgery!!! I give this place an A+!!
My Happy Hair Day with Dani at 26 On Ventura – YEAH! My Happy Hair Day! YEAH! Dani! YEAH! 26 On Ventura! To quote my mother, G-d rest her soul, my hair had " ...gone to hell in a handbasket". It was grown in on top, grown shaggy on bottom and a 'groan' to look at. I don't (yet) have the chutzpah to go off my comfort-zone of (bottled) brunette-ness, but I wanted 'something'. Mark, a friend of mine, recommended Dani at "26 On Ventura." Look what's come to the San Fernando Valley! "26" looks like a high-end Beverly Hills salon. Cappuccino Bar with someone graciously asking "...would you care for a...". There are NASA-like Flat-Screen TV's located throughout with runway models going to and fro. Dani was great. She asked what I want to look/feel like, and 'got' what I was saying. The result: soft highlights (my first), a slightly shorter cut, lots of bounce and shape. This is where I twirl my Happy Hair. Way cool was that while she was giving me a fabulous scalp and neck massage, the chair I was sitting in at the shampoo-bowl reclined into a oscillating massage lounger. My whole body was transported. Then, for a few all-too-brief moments...nothing else...in the entire world...mattered. I love the environment! Comfortable red pod chairs, stained concrete floors, sleek design lines. The stylists are 'real' friendly not 'fake' friendly. A background soundtrack is played just loud enough to enjoy and low enough for easy conversations. Especially important for us of 'Generation Sound-Check' who breast-fed to Zeppelin record albums and now can't hear the 'Teen Ring-Tone". The outdoor bamboo lounge area is a lovely place to wait-out hair processing. Very 'Teru Sushi' . The whole process took about three hours and was fun! Dani is smart and warm-hearted with a good sense of humor! Pricey? Yes, but worth it. I'd go wherever she is, but I'm glad she's at 26 On Ventura. The place is so cool! If they covered the footrests and doorposts in 14K gold, they could open a salon in Dubai.
Thanks! I love it!
What are you waiting for??? – Dani is not only the best at cut and color (people literally stop me on the street to comment), but she is also a joy to be around. I always look forward to my "visits" with her. Make an appointment and see for yourself!
Dani is the best at hair color! I've sent so many of my friends to her, they love her... they all owe me! :) She's the best.
A+++ Hair Stylist – Although I haven't seen the new salon, I can honestly say that I have never had anyone do a better cut or color than Dani. I only have my hair done two or three times a year, but that's because I'm in NY and Dani flies in to fix whatever mess I've made in between visits. I'm always happy with my hair and just as happy to spend time with her. Lot's of luck in your new location, I'll see you next week in NY. Love, Mom
