The Scene: "One minute I'm doing my best friend's hair and the next Debbie Harry's walking in," says Danilo of the NYC Lower East Side basement where much of his red-carpet preening occurs.
The Philosophy: Forget natural beauty. "I want heightened idealism, ultimate simplicity, yet full-on drama. Beauty is always about turning up the dial." Think Rooney Mara in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and Lady Gaga's soda-can updo in the video for "Telephone."
Tools of Choice: "Pantene Pro-V Style & Shaping Hairspray is versatile and not stiff but delivers results. Pantene Aqua Light leave-in spray makes hair look smooth and enviable. I also love my Sonia Kashuk mixed-bristle brush."
"My eclectic collage de tête." Many of the items have been on runways, the silver screen, and at celebrity weddings.
