Meet Danielle Wright
Danielle Wright has always had a great passion for hair-styling. Like many young girls, the Queens, NY native would mimic her favorite musicians hairstyles. At the age of 14, Danielle began braiding her classmates hair while attending the High School of Fashion Industries. After realizing a career in fashion was not something she wanted to pursue, Danielle decided that after graduation she would be a hairstylist.
Danielle attended the Learning Institute for Beauty Sciences (now known as Empire Beauty School). Danielle not only learned about hair styling, but the science of hair. After successful completion of her cosmetology program, Danielle began working in Done Up Salon assisting seasoned stylists. During her apprenticeship, Danielle would apply all that she learned to various photo-shoots and local fashion shows. Throughout her journey of perfecting her skill-sets Danielle was introduced to highly revered hairstylist, Hadiiya Barbel. This meeting led to an opportunity to assist Ms. Barbel. Under Hadiiya Barbel's guidance Danielle learned the art of creating couture wigs famously known as The Crown.
With her natural born talent and training, Danielle has showcased her talent in a variety of outlets such as television (ex: PIX 11 news, Good Morning America, Inside Edition), film (Spare Change), music videos (ex: Sharon Jones And The Dap Kings, "I Learned The Hard Way), runway shows (ex: Nexus Showroom and Townhouse and The Green Shows), and magazines (ex: Essence and Sports Entertainment Today). Danielle has also demonstrated her artistry on celebs such as actress Vivica A. Fox, television personality Star Jones and legendary gospel singer Pastor Shirley Caesar. Since the beginning of her career in 2006, Danielle's work has not only showcased her talent, but her ability to adapt in any creative environment and work with all hair textures. Known for being a team player, Ms. Wright does not allow her ego to overshadow productivity. From assisting an Emmy award winning stylist to teaching new stylists how to work behind the scenes, Danielle Wright knows how to be a teacher and a student of the hair industry.
Danielle Wright currently resides in New York City.
