Today I wanted to take a minute to acknowledge all the people that help to make DoTheDaniel.com a success around the world. It’s not just the #DTDteam as we continue to grow and expand, but it is also the friends and family that support us. It’s you the reader, and of course the brands that work with us to make us look and feel our best. At the end of the day, I spend a lot of time in the public eye and I want to always feel my best. That being said, as I’ve gotten older, I have come to realize that the choices I make should be responsible ones. From supporting eco-friendly and socially responsible brands such as Outland Denim (click here to read about them if you haven’t yet) to the salon I frequent to keep my wild head of hair tamed, life is about making the right decisions lately. So it’s why I am excited to announce that we’ve partnered with worldSALON here in Toronto as our salon of choice. And there are quite a few reasons why this change is for the better.
So why the change you ask? Well as many of you have noticed I have been working on myself both inside and out in 2018. There is a certain sense of transformation and introspection in the blog posts I have been writing and I feel as though I have been (at times given a healthy push towards) reconnecting with myself. So when I had a chance to sit down with Brian Phillips, owner of worldSALON and founder of WORLD – his own line of beauty products that he sells and uses at the salon – I was inspired to make a change for the better for myself.
Coming back to being a brunette after almost two years as a blonde wasn’t just a marketing ploy. It was actually born of a desire to reconnect with myself a little more. Over the last five years, I have expressed myself with the clothes I wear and my hairstyles in more ways than I realized. Though the blonde was a LOT of fun, it was also really hard on my hair. Coming back to something a little closer to my natural hair colour made me feel more like me. A little more Daniel, a little less “Do The” if that makes sense. Followed by, and in conjunction with, my fitness journey and new BonLook glasses (click here) I am feeling more like myself one day at a time.

It looks as though Daniel is excited about our new partnership with @worldsalon in Toronto. This past weekend he was introduced to @johnathanjeffrey and the entire team. What do you think of the new hair? 😉💚 From the beautiful space, to their own line of eco friendly products that we can’t wait to try at home, we are so excited to see what @catherinescabinet and the Toronto team have to say when they come to visit! #worldSALON #MondayMotivation #DoTheDaniel #Sponsored
But why worldSALON specifically? Their brand philosophy is one that is quite rare in the world of beauty and salons. What many people don’t realize is that the world of hair and beauty treatments, there are SO many chemicals and pollutants used. And while it is lovely to get the look you want with a talented stylist, are we really giving into an industry that is hurting our bodies and the planet? Similar to why Outland Denim spoke to me, Brian brought me through his journey of realizing he could do better.
