My goal is to provide skills and techniques that are useful for you behind the chair. I will help you create unique cuts for your clients that are timeless and suitable to the individual not just of the moment. We will look at hair in a simplistic yet clever way to help streamline your approach to cutting. There are no gimmicks and the skills taught can be utilized in endless applications. With this new arsenal of skills you open the door for a more diverse clientele, wider range of textures, and new shapes. This assures you that your clients will only be able to attain their look from you and only you.
In 2001 Dante began his career in hair with an apprenticeship at Bumble and bumble where he honed in on the art of cutting and styling. In the years to follow, he became a highly sought-after educator building education programs from the ground-up and teaching for some of the top brands in the industry including Bumble and bumble, ION Studio and V76.
Dante has also worked at various fashion shows and with a variety of publications such as Italian Vogue, Numero, and Harper's Bazaar. He has cut & styled the likes of Robin Thicke, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Margherita Missoni along with many of the models and fashion's elite gracing the world runways.
Dante has journeyed through some amazing adventures, but his heart belongs to the streets of NYC where he has defined his style. He constantly draws inspiration from music, books, and art to bring dimension to his highly visual approach. This coupled with his continued education and involvement in the fashion industry keeps his eyes and hands sharp while progressing forward in this ever-changing world.
