2022 was a momentous year for DANESTYLES! What started in Lone Holt’s home in 2012 has leveled up over the last ten years. When the new location opened in December 2020, DANESTYLES became the first Natulique-certified Earth Salon in the state of Washington with near-zero waste, a robust recycling program, and a non-toxic space all the way down to the carefully chosen paint on the walls and floors. From the beginning, DANESTYLES was recognized as a Green Circle salon, which means even hair clippings and excess hair color are recovered and diverted from landfills!

Today DANESTYLES is a brick-and-mortar salon, spa, and art gallery that employs four talented stylists and engages a great support team. Here is what we are celebrating as we kick off the new year.

Sticking to our core principles, we doubled in size last year, bringing on two new stylists to join Lone and Alida. Meagan, a curly hair specialist with expertise in hair extensions, joined us in March. Cee Jae joined us in July as a stylist with Ayurvedic training, a perfect match for the LYKKE spa. The increase in scale meant stepping up our business practices for the salon and product distribution, so we also welcomed Annette Kleven as a business manager. Want to join the DANESTYLES family as a stylist?

With Cee Jae on board and remodeling complete, the LYKKE spa opened (“lykke” is the Danish word for happiness, luck or fortune, pronounced Loo-kuh), offering skin care and treatments that deeply soothe the body’s nervous system. Our cozy spa room includes a vessel for Shirodhara, a blissful Ayurvedic practice of slowly and steadily pouring oil over your forehead for the ultimate therapeutic head massage. Want to try it? Book an appointment and be sure to let us know how well you sleep after! 

Coaching and education are part of the DANESTYLES vision, and last year that vision became reality. We hosted Kristin Dionne from Rad Hair Studio in Bellingham for a long shag cutting class, Hattori Hanzo educator Shelby Sark for an advanced shear cutting class, and Meagan showed us techniques for natural curl cutting.

Andrea Lewicki joined the team the team as our curator at the beginning of 2022. Art was always part of plan for the new location and since moving in, we’ve shared our walls with over a dozen local artists whose artwork can be found in galleries around Puget Sound. KSDluxe sterling silver jewelry was added to the salon’s shop in March. Want to show your art with us? Drop a line to our curator.

While we celebrate these milestones, we are also filled with gratitude for your support. Some of you have been along for the whole journey! To our old friends and new friends, thank you!

Happy New Year from all of us at DANESTYLES
