The Business of Beauty Danielle Settembre

What a better way to celebrate Women’s History Month than with a female award-winning entrepreneur, female business owner and CW Alum, Danielle Settembre!

Danielle is the owner and founder of Hair Saloon & Cafe™ in Scarsdale, NY.

Student hosts, Neranyi, Shahine, and Guadalupe welcomed Danielle to a room full of students who heard advice on business, balancing work, and life, about being a woman in business, and her experience at CW. “Never give up!”, was Danielle’s message to the students, on their dreams.

You could hear the passion in Danielle’s voice as she spoke about her business and her love for cutting hair. Danielle is quoted as saying, “I love what I do, and I make people feel good.  She said to, “follow what you love and not the money; the money will come.”  This advice resonated with the students. 

When asked about her inspiration, Danielle said it comes from within. Hear her inspirational message below.

We thank Danielle for her time spent with students and are proud of her success!
