Dana finished her schooling at The Aveda Fredric's institute to continue on to an almost year long apprenticeship in the Chicago area, and then continued her craft there until she came back to Indianapolis in January of 2011. Her favorite things to do are color and to deal with thick, crazy and unruly hair. BUT her abosolute favorite? SHE LOVES BRIDAL! Book her for her entire party! She even travels.

Dana is incredibly professional. I had trouble finding someone who could cut my hair before I had met Dana. She understands exactly what you are looking for and she makes the experience fun. Highly recommend!
LOVE LOVE LOVE Dana!!! I will not allow anyone else to touch my hair. I have natural curls that she knows all about and knows how to tame them. The thing about Dana is that you are not only getting an awesome flawless hair cut/color/make over but you are also getting an experience that only DANA can provide. She is one of a kind and super FUNNY and goofy!!!! I made the mistake once and let my friend color and cut my hair. I called Dana immediatly after leaving in tears. I ran over to the shop and she was able to put a smile on my face and reassure that she would fix my hair. So the next day she SQUEEZED me, yes litterally SQUEEZED me into her always busy schedule the next day. That was the best hair style and color I have ever recieved. I send all of my friends and coworkers to her and they all have nothing but good things about her and her talents!! Oh, and she is also really good with eye brows.......my brother knows first hand!!!!!
Dana is the best of the best!!!! She truely cares about all of her clients and will do anything to make their day better.(Speaking from experience) I wont let anyone else touch my hair. I have my friends and coworkers going to her too!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE her!!!!
I loved Dana. Seriously, she was the best stylist that I have ever had. I didn't exactly know what I wanted to do with my hair and she took the time to show me pictures and made sure that I found the hairstyle that I loved. She cared about what I wanted and she has a great personality.
I LOVE DANA!!! No one else has touched my hair for over two years now! I have really thick curly hair and haven't always been pleased with the result in the past (just seems like not every hair stylist knows what to do with curly hair!), but Dana has always been amazing! From everything to dealing with my curly mess to helping me pick a hair color which works well with my skin tone, she can do it all! LOVE going to her!
I have thick curly difficult hair, which had been a problem at times until I found Dana! She is the best and will always be honest with me on what will or will not work for me (which is something I appreciate considering some of the hot messes I have had on top of my head in the past because someone didn't stop me from making a BIG mistake!). She also did my hair for my wedding and really made me feel wonderful on such a special day! All my bridemaids loved her too!!! All of us loved our hair that day and not even one strand was out of place despite the heat and all the dancing! I have been going to Dana for over two years now and can't imagine going to anyone else!
Dana has been doing a great job helping me with my hair for over 8 months now. I am trying to grow it out, and we've been keeping it easily styled during the 'awkward' stages. Also, she has done amazing things with color, and I have difficult hair that likes to pull red. She has also helped me with getting the right products to get my thick coarse hair silky and shiny, even after hi-lites and coloring!
When I first saw her I didn't know if our styles would blend. She's got bright red hair and I am stay at home mom. But I loved her because she was very up front about everything. She wasn't trying to sell me a bunch of stuff I didn't need and seemed really willing to show me how to do my hair. She did my color and it turned out fabulous. Great girl
Dana does a great Men's cut...not that men are particularly picky, but I've never had a haircut as good as Dana's....I doubt I will ever change stylists! She's not your typical girl. She's very down to earth and sociable. She's always willing to LISTEN to what you want, and recommend some things that may expand your horizons....every time I leave, my hair looks better than I could hope for....A+++++++++++ stylist!!!
Dana's number one priority is making you look great. I used to use box color and my hair was awful. Never again! I kept my hair short because it was so heavy and dry. After seeing her for a year my hair is now shoulder length, in great condition and a gorgeous color-all thanks to Dana. She keeps my hair from weighing me down, and was willing to teach me how to style it properly. I am pale and naturally a dishwater blonde, and when I wanted to go red she found a color that looks vibrant and natural on me. She takes care and consideration on recommending products for your hair, and won't push you unnecessary product. Every time she does my hair I get multiple compliments for at least a week.Dana's number one priority is making you look great. I used to use box color and my hair was awful. Never again!

I like Dana bc she is passionate about what she does - and bc she's creative, without being too pushy. She can help you update an older style, go totally all out with something fun, or help you maintain what you currently have. She's got great energy and a good knowledge base.
Its always a gamble and pain in the ass to find a stylist that isn?t going to fudge your hair all up, however with Dana the only risk you are taking is looking like a sexified babe, my expectations have always been exceeded with the end result of my hair. When that happens you know you have a stylist you need to keep, she always fits me immediately into her schedule and is happy to do so. Dana is not only a great hairstylist but she always has a friendly and effervescent personality to match her great skills. She is definitely a Shhupper Shhtylist!!
I love Dana and would recommend her to everyone I know! She knows exactly how I like my hair and always has a good idea up her sleeve. I love my hair cut because it's so easy to take care of and I need that because I'm a mother of a 2 year old and I need something simple, but also something that will look nice with everything! I am never disappointed when I go to her and I'm sure no one else has been either.
I am a 20 year old, pretty "guy like" male. One wouldn't look at me and think hair stylist or salon. But, one of the favorite parts of my upkeep is going to see Dana to get my hair cut. She is a fantastic hairstylist, and has been one of the few people to recognize and deal with my very difficult hairstyle. I've literally had other stylists give up while cutting my hair and leave me with a terrible look. But Dana is friendly, fun, personable, and just a wonderful all around person. I would recommend her for any age or any gender. She's just the best.
Dana has been cutting my hair for about 4 years now and I just love her to death. She's extremely talented and always has something fresh in mind for my style. I drive 45 mins. just to have her do my hair. She has a great sense of style and knows what works for me. Dana always tells me that guys make the best customers because we are so loyal to our hair dressers. I've had a few different stylists but I'll always go to Dana because she knows me and knows what I want to do with my hair. She has a way with people to make them feel comfortable and to make them look really sharp. Dana is the best and I'll continue to bring her my business for as long as I have hair(which should be a long time, thank you genetics!! lol)
