WHEN I STARTED BEAUTY SCHOOL IN 2011, I HAD NO IDEA WHERE THIS CAREER WOULD TAKE ME AND ALL OF THE OPPORTUNITIES I WOULD BE GIVEN. I GREW UP WATCHING MY MOM DO HAIR SO IT'S NO SURPRISE THAT I GRAVITATED TOWARD THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY AND KNEW FROM A VERY YOUNG AGE I WAS GOING TO BE A HAIRSTYLIST. AS SOON AS I WAS LICENSED, I HIT THE GROUND RUNNING AND HAVEN'T LOOKED BACK SINCE!
IN LATE 2015 I MADE THE DECISION TO START MY OWN BUSINESS AT SALON ISH AND IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST DECISIONS I EVER MADE. NOT ONLY DO I LOVE CREATING BEAUTIFUL HAIR AND CONTINUING MY EDUCATION BUT I HAVE A PASSION FOR SHARING MY KNOWLEDGE WITH OTHER STYLISTS' IN THIS EVER GROWING INDUSTRY. FAST FORWARD TO 2019, I MADE THE JUMP AND STARTED EDUCATING! WHETHER I AM TEACHING OR TAKING THE CLASS, THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT GEEKING OUT OVER TECHNIQUES, FORMULATIONS, AND ALL THINGS HAIR WITH LIKE MINDED STYLISTS' THAT IS INCREDIBLY FULFILLING!
IF YOU'VE SPENT TIME IN MY CHAIR, YOU KNOW HOW IMPORTANT MY FAMILY IS. YOU KNOW THAT WE LOVE TO TRAVEL AND ALMOST ALWAYS HAVE A TRIP PLANNED. WHEN WE'RE NOT TRAVELING, OUR WEEKENDS ARE FILLED WITH SUPPORTING OUR BOYS WHILE THEY PLAY THEIR FAVORITE SPORT!
IF WE HAVE YET TO MEET, I LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING YOU!

"I won’t go anywhere else! So much so that I drive from Snohomish to Puyallup for my hair to be done by Dana. She nails the color and the cut every time! She’s very knowledgeable, a total master at her craft!"

"I absolutely LOVE how Dana transforms my hair. As a fellow hairstylist I can be pretty picky but I give her full creative freedom every time because I know she won't disappoint. She's super talented, positive, and inspiring and I love my time in her chair."
