Since Samuel Cole Salon opened its doors in 1997, Daniel Kaner has been a personal mentor and friend to owners Jack and Joelle Ray and a prominent leader in the hair and beauty industry. Currently the President of Oribe Haircare, Daniel Kaner has had a hand in the development of multiple iconic beauty brands.
Daniel shared his thoughts on the value of experiences over products or services and the importance of education. Using the poet Robert Browning’s words, “Ah, but a person’s reach should exceed their grasp,” he shared his affinity for education, which he personally explores through podcasts and Ted Talks. He left the team with a fact to ponder: You have to know what you want before you can become it.
What an honor it was to have such a humble servant-minded industry leader in the salon! Daniel is a tremendous asset to the industry and an inspiration to us all.Jack Ray
