Now I’m just gonna get ready, head in D: Nice to meet you M: Hi! I’m a hugger, so nice to meet you D: I was going to call you to tell to leave it layered M: Oh! It’s very layered yeah, we’re gonna have to get lots of fixing done D: Yea, that’s okay M: I’m so thankful you where willing to do this D: Oh no problem when they called and asked I got excited Oh and this is my guide dog, he’s always sleepy Gallop: I was thinking of getting pink ears maybe Alright, so nows the time my incredible stylist has arrived Do you want to introduce yourself Hi I’m Danilo M: Oh please you need to give more of- you need to give them the rundown this man is like a legend you guys. I’m gonna put some links about this guy down below because you have done some incredible things with hair I’ve had a lot of fun and a lot of beautiful collaborations too and great opportunities. Starting with this one today. We’re gonna have fun M: Can you give us some name dropping? D: You know this is the thing I’m worst at but I’m very well-known for Gwen Stefani. We’ve been together we’re good friends for 20 years now so that’s a lot of hair lot of looks. But I’ve had the pleasure of movies uh videos, magazines, just really all- I’m also global ambassador with Pantene. I do a lot of things I enjoy hair and I enjoy all that hair pulls in So I know I’m in good hands. I trust you because with this I mean I have to trust you so much cuz I’m not gonna be able to see myself You can see the uh, the botched chop job I did D: Yea well that’s pretty typical with donations, you know It’s kinda hard you get an instant layer I’ve learned some tricks with that but I love that you where doing it and doing your own I always encourage people to do their own So today we’re gonna clean up you cut and do some colour I brought some shades you know I’m going on what you showed me but there’s room to play What are the details that you’re looking for from a cut M: Yes!
D: and just to honor you I’m gonna cut you hair with my eyes closed Oh goodness! Two blind haircuts D: I’ve done it before
M: Nooo because it’s funny you talk abpout feeling because that’s how I do everything M: Right! is touching
D: I don’t usually look in the mirror So I can cut it so you have the illusion of shorter bang But it’s really just a layer that helps push back the length That works very well so you have options whenever you want a bang you kinda pull it out You know and I’m also looking at placement of colour I also find colour break is very flattering around this area That’s what I like, is like the mid temple I’m lopping off about an inch and a half M: That’s what I figured I’m doing it kinda along the edges so you have a little bit of a… sort of A very subtle layer of quality to it So it’ll swing and swish a little more I like that I do like your over all look M: Thank you
D: Do you wear your in ponytail a lot? Well I have just- I’ve been very known for the top knot The big bun on top my head just because it’s been D: Thank you for letting me know that cuz we wanna make sure you keep that So this is a product from Pantene It’s called, it’s beautiful, we have beautiful length line. Cuz the scientists found that they could treat you hair with a conditioner that allowed your hair to stay strong M: The whole way down
D: So donation worthy-able It smells very um, tropical fruity So your layering in front there quite a bit M: Yea
D: But I guess with you length.. so I’m building into that, I’m going to reshape some of it but there’s some really good length in there so it’ll work really well in this whole At this point I’m going to section you away and start applying colour which- initially I’m going to do bleach on you M: Yes
D: It’s just going to be quicker and consistent. I’m still sorta feeling out the pictures that I received we’re a bit of a dusty rose kinda quality and that coupled with the colour that’ll bring you hair up basically your tips will be much lighter with a fade to a little more golden and the dusty rose will blend the 2 I have a different theory with colour I do a different thing, it’s always served me well I attack. I get it on and I get it off No so precious about it, the real damage to hair is the time the colours on more then anything So what I’m doing now is putting it on just basically to the point, the length of your bangs M: You always knew you wanted to be a hairdresser?
D: No actually I got talked into it. The heads of the Vidal Sassoon in San Francisco said “We think you’d be a great hairdresser and we’ll train you” and so I did it. That was the first academy outside of London for Vidal Sassoon. I had that great fortune to have span the late 70s and then I got to New York in the 80s and just went crazy M: Well thank god they suggested it You guys it’s lightening apparently it’s starting to get blonde looking D: *whistle noise* look at that Time to rise out my bleach D: You can grab my arm
M: thank you You know the proper way to sighted guide and everything Hi babe, mummy’s a blonde mummy’s a blonde Well now you’re more of a um Probably coppery blonde Well it’s still a nice, you’re definitely a golden shade You would be a very- like a strawberry blonde I feel like you just have incredible stories for days and so much knowledge. D: I’ll write a book I’ve been in some pretty amazing situations and you it’s like I don’t know- you know it’s kind of the take it to your grave kinda thing This product smells so good D: It’s a good one this is the overtone, and so I’m gonna do that all over cuz it has a little more vibrancy to it What I’m gonna do is put it down as a base and then I’m gonna play with a little pink and the red I feel like this is like a neck work out as you pull on my head all day D: You can definitely relax I’ll do this ones The rose gold on and your hairs gone to a rose and gold. Rose gold to me is always very- more towards like a D: real strawberry blonde
M: Yeah There’s a realness too it, but this particular one has a little fun in it M: A little more of a- little sparkle to it yeah D: I’mm allowing some of you hair to grab alright… …so you’re gonna get
M: Some mix So it’s gonna be a mix and there’s going to be bangalore tonality, meaning an ombre of vibrant to pale M: Love that, love that then some of your balayages are picking up a little warmer which is nice. M: It’s going to be so intresting D: the more colours the better Frozen I did Elsa’s hair *Gasp* You did Elsa’s hair? I did Elsa’s hair, I created it with incredible creators When I went to Disney to start developing I read the script, I was given a studio, I went in it’s a huge studio and they had 6 cameras set up I brought a tripod, a wig head, and designed 3 styles that I thought would fit the script when I read the script It was such an incredible experience I did the 3 then a model came, then we had set up a huge one of those big Disney wind machines and everybody came, directors, producers, the people that where branding and making product all of us came into one room M: You have the coolest job I worked with MAC on their troll doll movie collaboration. M: *gasps* that is so cool You should see the video I did it got posted M: Link below So this will be another rise and if we want to saturate a little deeper we’ll do that again M: Yay I’m letting some of the red punch through a little bit Gotta rise D: I’m glad I put int the vibrance If you want to do a overall I would do the rose gold overtone. And then if you want to play vibrance there’s the red and the pink. Pink absorbed really beautifully in it *hair dryer noise* We’ll be your eyes for you at this moment, there’s some areas that have a little more blush going on so that- Not only have I done the ombre I know I talked about this but if you’re going back through it placement, I did linear this way too, so I’ve done horizontal and so that way you sorta getting bands of new colours M: Do you like it?
J: It’s semi reminiscent of like old Hayley Williams kinda style when she use to have like a gold-red-pink sorta like mix together M: Interesting
J: That’s cool too when it’s like up and then you get the like ombre still in the bang D: You’re long enough that you can still go up So I have a big iron, I’m gonna use my big fatty Biggest iron in the world It’s 2 inch, but it’s great cuz it’s like I spent hours blowing you hair out Even though blowouts are fabulous, and I know every girl with curly hair loooves them but I feel people 1 they pull the hair very hard and when they roll it they often aren’t getting the heat all over They just get one spot so I think ultimately it’s pretty damaging This is just to give you a little round brush finish little fluff So you can throw it around all day M: And I will be D: It’s pretty good colour there M: How are my ends looking? D: They’re- everybody’s happy, they’re good So that’s leave in conditioner in you hair with the little spray you can feel it Is that tolerable? M: Yeah! Yea I love it D: and it will stay, I bought a new spray that an interesting new spray that’s made out of bees wax M: Oooh I have no sense of your vision being impaired at all I have to keep reminding myself M: That’s like most people D: Well you’re so present that it doesn’t seem Oh my god I feel so like, New I feel like a new women I feel light, I feel fresh M: I feel excited
D: Looks really good Here she is D: And it’s perfect cuz M: Look how cute she is she’s not down to my butt D: What’s happening here too is you have the dark sweeping into the colour so it’s a nice fade D: Happy hair M: Happy hair, happy girl I’m so thankful to you, I can’t tell you enough D: Well it was a pleasure, thanks for making it happen M: Thank YOU for making it happen
D: Thank’s for you donation too Gallop do you like my hair babe? I’m a new woman You guys the transformation is complete I can’t even- I can’t thank you enough D: It was a pleasure
M: This is just.. I mean I can’t see what it looks like but I feel so good. You know everybody is like in awe of what you’ve done and I’m sure everybody in the comments is as well. I’m gonna link- do you have any social media? D: Yeah.
M: I’m gonna link it all below you guys he is a hair god you need to follow this man What he does is incredible, I’m so grateful to you to your assistant James who you guys saw, to Stacy and the Honey Pot Lounge for letting us use the space *Jake and Stacy laughing* More hair transformations, if you are growing your hair consider cutting it and donating it, it’s a great cause it’s really important and you know if you can’t donate hair donate money these wigs cost a lot to make D: They do, and the great thing about these foundations is they give them away
M: Exactly D: and I think you and I where discussing eairlier one thing about cutting hair is it grows back, yaaay so you can do it multiple times, but it actually changes peoples lives. People are different because they have the confidence and they can walk in the world, whatever their challenge is these wigs make a huge difference M: Hair is- can become somebodies identity can feel like a make or break for confidence It’s so important so to be able to like give that gift to somebody else. To give them confidence and like you said to even make a difference of having them go to treatment or not. D: Yeah, that was a shocker for me M: For young people being bullied or not You know these things they really matter so I really encourage you guys, I’m gonna link a whole bunch of information about hair donation down below as well, both the charity I donated to and as well as Pantene Beautiful Lengths who you been working with for a long time so both of those will be linked below. Both are really worthy causes so thank you guys for coming with me on this hair journey Leave all the love for this man down below and the incredible work he’s done. And we’ll see you next time M: *blow kiss* Bye guys
