I’m Daria Wright, Emmy Award Winning Hairstylist.
Makeup Artist. Photographer. Visual creative.
My work experience for over a decade has been in fashion editorial including New York Fashion Week, photo shoots for Glamour, Essence, WWD, Modern Bride, and Marie Claire to print advertising campaigns and commercials for brands including H&M, Target, Revlon and Garnier Fructis.
I’m a licensed cosmetologist and member of the Makeup Artists & Hairstylists Union, Local 798 I.A.T.S.E. My behind the scenes TV & Film resume includes primetime drama (NBC’s – New Amsterdam), daytime talk shows (The Tyra Banks Show), network news, digital +new media as well as feature films ( The Sun is Also a Star- starring Yara Shahidi) and major motion pictures ( Goldfinch- starring Nicole Kidman).
Not only have I built a strong reputation for an outstanding work ethic, I’m also highly trusted and recommended for my unique skill and expertise with curly hair textures. I’ve been coined “the Curly Hair Connoisseur”.
I believe that in order to be an industry leader you must find ways to continually reinvent yourself and your brand. My passion for all things beauty, my background working with models, celebrities, and high profile clients along with my knack for personal branding + marketing have all led me to reinvent my brand as The Glam Guru, Beautypreneur. ( I’m an entrepreneur who’s business is based on my beauty related expertise).
Part of my reinventing has been the transition into capturing the colors and contrasts through the context of my lens. I draw from my experience working on tons of photo shoots and my keen attention to detail to focus on lifestyle, street style and portrait photography.
