Hairstylist-to-the-stars Danny Jelaca has more than a pair of scis­sors up his sleeve this Septem­ber.

Tell us about your new sa­lon, open­ing at the Mi­ami Beach Ma­rina. I’m open­ing a one-stop shop [this Septem­ber], all very lux­u­ri­ous and high-end. We’re do­ing a wide ar­ray of med­i­cal spa ser­vices. We’ll [also] have a man­i­cure/pedi­cure sa­lon, a fullser­vice O.P Makeup Stu­dio, and a pri­vate spa treat­ment room. Ev­ery­thing will be il­lu­mi­nated. The color sta­tion is go­ing to look like a float­ing bar.

What is it like styling top mod­els like Heidi Klum and Lily Aldridge? Never a dull mo­ment. On the way, I’m fist­pump­ing, get­ting my­self riled up. But I treat them like any other per­son. I never hound them down for pic­tures, but by the end they’re tak­ing self­ies with me.

You’re com­pet­ing on a new show, Amer­i­can Beauty Star. I’m one of the top 12 celebrity stylists in the coun­try com­pet­ing for a ti­tle. It’s a new chal­lenge for me to see how far I can be pushed... I can’t wait to see what I’m made of.

You also have a prod­uct line in the works… I’ve rec­og­nized that a lot of my clients are jet­set­ters. I’m com­ing out with an all-cli­mate con­trol line to take you from dry to hu­mid weather.

What do you love about work­ing in Mi­ami? The city has loved me back the way I’ve loved it. Mi­ami has its own style, vibe, pulse. I feel like I iden­tify with ev­ery­thing—the sex ap­peal, the mu­sic, the Latin vibe, the pro­gres­sion of the city. 300 Al­ton Road, Ste. 100, Mi­ami Beach, 305-6049696; dan­ny­jelaca.com

The new Mi­ami Beach Ma­rina location from Danny Jelaca (aƛoưe) fea­tures a man­i­cure/ pedi­cure sa­lon, a full-ser­vice O.P Makeup Stu­dio, a pri­vate spa treat­ment room, and much more.
