Daniela’s journey as a hairstylist began long before she graduated from a hair designing institute in New Jersey in 1994.
As a child growing up in Europe, she experiences firsthand what it’s like to be a hairstylist. Her best friend attended a Hair academy in Prague, and together they spent countless days trying to create that perfect style. Soon after Daniela moved to the United States, there was no stopping her from pursuing her dream as a hair designer.
She has earned countless certifications and attends the Bumble and Bumble University twice a year to further her knowledge and technique.
Daniela’s specialty has always been Glamorous looks of an Evening Style or that flawless look of a Bridal and a Special Occasion Up-do. Daniela has participated in several Photo Shoots for print and magazine adds, tending to celebrities and musicians during their concerts and CD cover shoots. She attended and graduated from college to further enhance her vision, majoring in graphic design and photography with a double minor in fine arts and sculpture. Hair
Styling is her love and passion, and it reflects in her “Pieces of Art” that she creates to custom fit her clients.
” I was given a gift, and to share it with others and make them look more beautiful is pure joy.”
In 2008 Daniela created The Beauty Team to unite the talented hair and make-up artists she has collaborated with. In the year to come, she added a holistic nutritionist and a yoga instructor to further assist future brides in achieving a flawless look on their special day.
As an artist in real life, Daniela applies her talent in every style she creates. Each hairstyle is a unique reflection of the bride’s personality and a custom fit considering facial features and hair texture to ensure clients’ comfort, likability, and the desired outcome. In Michelangelo’s words, “In the piece of marble, I saw an angel, and I set it free.” That’s how Daniela views a bride walking in for a trial.- a masterpiece coming to life. The many factors that play a role in style selection are carefully discussed during a consultation and trial. With over 20 years of experience in the bridal artistry and countless events, the decision is made collectively than executed in a trial setting.

She is available for professional makeup services for all of your special occasions. In her own words: ” As a Professional Makeup Artist my goal is to provide you with the best service for your special day. I provide services throughout most of New Jersey and Staten Island.I offer a wide range of makeup services, please see my services page Every woman I have ever talked to has had a bad experience with makeup-whether your mother convinced you to let her do your makeup for the prom or the “makeup artist” at the “XYZ Cosmetics” counter in the department store ambushed you into a makeover.
I remember mine–I was 19 and one of the ladies at one of the better-known cosmetic counters convinced me to “fill in my eyebrows….a little.” I was wary, but I let her do it. Five minutes later she stood back and admired her work as she proudly handed me the mirror. I was shocked and horrified to see Bert from Sesame Street staring back at me.
When I started doing makeup professionally I made a promise to myself to never let anyone leave my chair feeling like they needed to make a beeline to the nearest sink to get it all off. I make sure that before the brush touches your face that I know exactly what you want. I know because I listen to you; (Radical idea, I know) and if there is something that you want to change, I am happy to do it because it’s your face and your day; you know what you are comfortable with. At the end of the day it doesn’t matter how great I thought you looked-you had to feel great about it.
My goal is to make you feel lovely, and happy you decided to get your makeup done. So….I’ve gone on and on, but I hope you’ve gotten a feel for what’s important to me. I look forward to working with you.”
