Dayna is absolutely amazing. In 43 years I have never had anyone show such genuine interest and caring in my lifestyle and hair. She encouraged me to play with and style my hair under her tutoring so that I could recreate the style at home. Amazing ! People stop me on the street to tell me they love my hair. Seriously. She is the BEST. 5 stars !!

"In the course of every life, there are moments that change everything. I had one of those moments the first time I sat in Dayna Cakebread’s chair. I went to the salon on the advice of a gorgeous-haired friend who described how her life had been transformed by Dayna’s approach to helping her clients enhance and embrace their beauty. So, after decades of hiding under a tangle of hair that had a life of its own, I peeked out to find Dayna asking for three things I wanted my hair to express about who I am. She was inviting me to look inside, to dare to admit my secret wish to be beautiful, to truly become myself. And I took the invitation. Three hours later, Dayna had removed a Cocker Spaniel’s worth of hair from my head, taught me some simple but powerful hair care skills, and shown me how (and why) to use products that would make it easy to maintain the style I’d chosen. I can still remember the feeling I had when I looked in the mirror and saw the smart, fun, and sexy woman who had replaced the dowdy bush baby I’d felt myself to be at the beginning of my appointment. It was like magic. Dayna’s unique approach to understanding what I want my hair to say, and her ongoing care and instruction, have made an enormous difference in my self-esteem, and have given me the confidence to be more successful in my personal and professional lives than I ever imagined I could be. To say that she has my eternal loyalty and gratitude would be an understatement. If she ever wants to retire, she’d better get to work on a Dayna Cakebread clone!"
