<p><strong>The Scene:</strong> "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.</p>
<p><strong>The Philosophy:</strong> 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 <em>The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo</em> and Lady Gaga's soda-can updo in the video for "Telephone."</p>
<p><strong>Tools of Choice:</strong> "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."</p>
