Influencers who have withstood the passage of time,

which makes them ICONS

Check out my hair heroes who never stop learning.  For decades they have continued to inspire me. They are not into rushed learning, realizing that mastery is a journey not a destination.  My hair heros, always make the hair the star not themselves, and what continues to  impressed me is their tenacity, discipline and amazing work ethic.
These magnificent 6 masters took a lifetime in their long careers to reach these lofty heights.  No “Insta” learning here.

Why I love Danilo, charming, gracious, humble, a Technical Genius  with abundant creativity and good taste.  A true Visionary.

Why I love Angelo Seminara, a true artist who uses hair as his canvas to paint and sculpt.  Angelo can look at a simple object totally unrelated to hair and find the inspiration. Then he  translates and interprets into an original genius idea.
Bonus he is a beautiful humble human being.
