Starting March, we are beginning to highlight the awesome stylists that are part of the hair industry and the amazing work that they do.
What better way is there to start this what none other than Danielle K White, founder of DKW Styling and the Natural Beaded Rows™ hair extension method. Based in, Laguna Beach, CA, Danielle is an amazing and talented stylist who's amazing at custom color, cuts, and place natural-looking hair extensions. She is passionate about creating the greatest personalized experience for her clients.
What do you love most about being a stylist?
What I love most about being a stylist is being my own boss. I also love the creative freedom it gives me. I love making women feel beautiful on a daily basis. Really there isn't much I don't like about my job, it’s fun to get paid to do what you are passionate about!
What is your favorite installation technique?
I have tried a little bit of everything when it comes to hair extensions my favorite insulation technique did not exist. I was searching to create the best method possible for both my clients and myself. I chose to take my experience with everything I had learned and create my own way of installing hair extensions. About five years ago I branded and named my technique which is now trademarked Natural Beaded Rows or NBR, in which I currently have over 300 stylus worldwide in my program. I truly believe in my product and have been fortunate enough to take my hair extension journey to the marketplace.
Who or What inspires you?
When you are simply obsessed with your career you can find inspiration and beauty in all things! I love staying in the know and learning every new trick and technique available. I respect and admire many successful entrepreneurs and stylists. But I would have to say my husband is my biggest supporter and fan. I believe as a stylist it is important to continue to do what you love. Continue to grow and expand without burning out. Choose who you decide to work! Create your own path, and you will find success. Surround yourself with like-minded people that continue to push as well as inspire you.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
It's crazy... five years doesn't seem like a lot of time but when I look back at what I have accomplished in the last five years I'm blown away with what is possible. When I first started on this journey of creating my own brand I was overwhelmed and wasn't sure where to start. The key to success is to just start. Do a little each and every day and within a year to five years you will be blown away how far you have come and how much you have learned about yourself along the way. If I continue the same speed in which I am currently at I'm excited to see where I will be even next year at this time! Consistency is key in order to continue to push and see Growth. Each and every year my goal is to change something, when I am too comfortable I stop learning and growing. I'm excited to see where the next five years takes me.
Do you have any beauty secrets you'd like to share?
One of my favorite beauty secrets is of course more hair is always better. ;)
Have any indulgences or guilty pleasures?
Another passion of mine is fashion. I currently have a blog called DKWstyling. It is a fashion hair and lifestyle blog. Fashion is a way to express yourself, it is also help assist with building my creativity and brand. I would say the fashion is also one of my guilty pleasures. Once you're introduced to a nice handbag or great pair of shoes it's hard to go back to something less.
What’s your favorite thing about LuxeREMI.com?
One of my many favorite things about Luxe Remi hair is the customer service and prompt response to any questions I have. The hair brand I use for NBR is Bohyme which they have a wide range of colors and lengths to choose from.
