Senior Hair Color Specialist at Mario Tricoci Hair Salon and Wella Platform Artist

Dan has been doing hair color for over 30 years and is a world-renowned Hair Color Specialist. He started his career in beauty at Rocco Altobelli Salon in Minneapolis, MN however since then, Dan has been very involved with Wella Professionals, worked as a platform artist, and received several prestigious awards for his work with color.

“I thought going into this industry I’d do a couple heads of hair and go home, but you can make or break a person’s ego. It’s a difficult job. Some people won’t go to work the next day because of what you’ve done to their hair. You have to remember that what you do is important.”

Dan Johnson creates “orbit lights” hair color using Pravana’s magenta, pastel pink, and pastel coral at Tricoci University’s Chicago NW campus.

Dan was recruited to Illinois by Mario Tricoci to be the Director of Hair Color for his salons. During that role, he helped develop the talents of more than 200 color technicians. Currently, Dan is a Senior Hair Color Specialist at Mario Tricoci’s Hair Salon and Day Spa in Oak Brook, IL. Dan believes there is always more to learn so he recently studied abroad in London and Paris to stay at the forefront of color trends and techniques.
