Dana Lundgren, Stylist

I’m Dana and I’ve been with Dolce Lusso, Myrtle Beach, since 2013. Before moving to the beach, I lived in New York and did hair for 3 years up there. My salon in New York was similar to the vibes here at Dolce Lusso and provided a ton of advanced education classes keeping all of my techniques fresh, time efficient & trendy! Because yes, everyone wants beautiful trendy hair, but who’s got the time to be in the salon for half of the day!? As of mom of two boys (one and two), I know timing is crucial to your day! Saving time is key for styling, that’s why I love the Aveda Dry Shampoo!

I love major color changes, drastic haircuts and someone willing to try something new! Although achieving the look you’ve always felt comfortable having is just as important, it’s never too late to try a new look! Let me help you achieve the style you have in mind!

He loves to pay attention to detail, rightfully so because he has been doing hair since 2006. Tony really enjoys all aspects of his career but loves dimensional color. Foiling and balayage are two things Tony excels at for that dimensional look. The tiny details come with the finish.

Thickening tonic is one of Tony’s top product to create an overall look.
