Danica Schaefer HAIR & MAKEUP ARTIST

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO GET INTO THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY? The simple answer is I wanted to be an artist. I went to art school and I love to paint and draw people. I was raised up in a salon and my mom is a hairstylist/salon owner as well. I love fashion and wanted to work in the industry. My dreams are of fashion shows, photo shoots and art directing. When it came down to choosing a path it just made sense!

 

WHO ARE YOUR STYLE ICONS? Madonna, David Bowie, Marilyn, Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn, Bridget Bardot, Anna Karina, French new wave mod girls, Andy Warhol (1960s pop artist), The Ronettes and other 60s girl bands, 1980s John Hughes dream girls & 1970s Punk and Glam

 

WHAT STYLES AND HAIR TYPES DO YOU MOST ENJOY CREATING AND WORKING WITH? I'm a Drycut specialist and love making you blonder and blonder! Drycutting is a more "lived in" way of cutting. It's great for textured hair, fine hair, curly hair and funky cowlicks. I love cutting short creative girl cuts, men's hair and long layered cuts. Blondes! I'm a fan of bold, bright all over blonde hair. But also love to do a natural hand painted balayage that lasts you months. And of course, all the fun pastel colors.

 

WHAT IS YOUR SPIRIT ANIMAL? Cats!!

 

FAVORITE Bb. PRODUCT: It usually come back to Styling Lotion. Its classic!

 

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS: I'm so lucky I've been able to work and learn with some of the best hairstylist in the world. I took a hands on masters styling course from Garren (he's done Madonna's hair... Liz Taylor.. its crazy). He was just brilliant. I've met and had classes from James Pecis and Kien Hong, both who have been lead stylist in many NYC/Paris/Milan fashion week shows. A dream some day! Moving to LA has offered a variety of learning experiences as well: working on set, photoshoots, small independent films for friends, and I've also directed a couple hair/art shows myself.
