Danna was born and raised in South Africa, and in 1994, moved to the United States with only two suitcases in tow. She left her family behind and survived in the land of opportunity on borrowed money. In 2003, Danna suffered multiple back injuries when she was got into a terrible car accident. However, her strong belief in hard work and determination led her to persevere and to recover successfully. As a hair stylist, Danna continues to be inspired by her mother, a former hairdresser. Danna is very proud of her Jewish upbringing, and has continued to live her life according to the Jewish value system. Aside from hairstyling, she also spends her time dancing, snow and water skiing and watching her favorite basketball team, the L.A. Lakers. Danna works for Allen Edwards Salon in Brentwood, California.
Currently, she is appearing on the Bravo reality series, Shear Genius, where she competes with 11 other accomplished hair stylists.
