Today we’d like to introduce you to Daniel Winter.
Hi Daniel, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
Growing up in Southern California, I found myself getting into trouble at a young age. After seeing friends lose their lives and become incarcerated, I opted for a life change and took a job in the hair industry as a salon receptionist in Pasadena, CA.
After working as an assistant and receptionist decided to go back to school to obtain my license and started working professionally. Since the start of my career, I’ve had the pleasure of cutting celebrities and professional athletes, but my greatest joy has come from education.
I’ve taught for companies traveling and for the Paul Mitchell schools programs giving back the knowledge I have in hopes to change someone’s path for the better has been and always will be my greatest accomplishment.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
No road is ever smooth. Take 65 for example. It ain’t smooth but gets you where you need to be. From drugs to failed relationships I’m thankful for the struggles because they have molded me into who I am today.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I’ve worked in the hair industry for the past 17 years and held every position you can. Since moving to Tennessee, I now work at Publicsquare barbers in Gallatin and love it.
In Los Angeles, I built shops and brands with some of the best people I’ve ever met. I’ve seen my apprentices go on to have amazing careers over the years.
Out of everything I’m most proud of every student I’ve ever been able to help with their growth.
Any big plans?
Right now, just getting fully settled in with my family here in Nashville. Giving my son the future he never would have had back home and of course, building something for us here.
