Daniel Keane

Owner and Operator

Daniel Keane is an internationally celebrated colorist, stylist, platform artist and teacher. He opened MarketPlace Salon in Seattle’s famous Pike Place Market in 1983, turning it into one of the most popular and innovative salons in the city. Under his expert direction and creative leadership the business quickly grew, eventually becoming a full-service day spa, offering head-to-toe beauty treatments and grooming. Following a reorganization in 2003, he renamed the company Serenza Salon and Day Spa and moved it to a beautifully remodeled and more spacious location in Burien, just south of the city, where it continues to grow and thrive.

In addition to being a successful business owner, Daniel is a founding and current member of the H.O.T. Style Council for Helen of Troy and an Academy Director for IT&LY Hair Fashion, a global manufacturer of hair coloring and other grooming products. He has appeared regularly on local television talk shows, such as Northwest Afternoon, and where he created hair and make-up for international celebrities including Kitty Dukakis, Julia Child, Martha Plimpton, and Julie Harris.

Over the span of his impressive career, Daniel has honed and demonstrated his skills in countless master classes, working with industry professionals and educators from all over the world. He has been a featured educator for Rusk and Aveda, and a member of the National Show and Education Team for It&ly Hairfashion and Team NAHA, participating in shows and conducting seminars where he has developed a reputation for his highly original and ground-breaking cut and coloring techniques.

    Daniel is amazing and continues to do things with my hair that I would never think of but the cut somehow always turns out to be exactly what I want!!! When your hair dresser says "I've been thinking about this cut for you all week" leading up to my appointment, that's service. Love Serenza Salon.
