Daniel Mora | Colorist / Co-Founder | @danielmbeauty




Daniel M. is well known for his beautiful, dimensional colors. His attention to detail and leadership skills have earned him a spot as one of the most sought after colorists in California.


Combining his passion for education, his exceptional eye for creating color that compliments his clients’ skin tone and his warm personality, Daniel has created a distinctive style, look and service experience that his clients love.

In addition, Daniel has dedicated the last six years of his career to teaching his techniques to other stylists around the world and has earned the tittle of one of the most successful independent color educators in the US.


Self-taught and self-made, Daniel has a special way of inspiring others. His resilience and commitment to hard work have earned him ambassadorship positions with some of the most successful hair color and hair extensions companies in the world. Currently Daniel holds a coveted position as brand ambassador for WELLA, a selective and innovative global leader in the beauty industry.
When the world shut down in 2020, Daniel was faced with novel challenges that shifted his perspective about the hair industry. He realized that he wanted to create a space where he and other stylists could grow and feel supported. More so, he wanted to provide his clients with a serene environment where they could relax and forget about the outside world while experiencing exceptional hair services and treatments.


Therefore, Daniel collaborated with best friend and master stylist Chaie de Jesus, to bring a new salon culture to the world. A place of inclusion, creativity, education and success that Daniel can’t wait to share with all of his clients!




Chaie is well-known and loved by her clients for her meticulous attention to detail and deep commitment to ensuring that every client leaves her chair feeling sexy, confident and thrilled with her work.

Combining her expertise in the art of cutting, a passion for hair and her unique sense of style and creativity, Chaie has created her signature look - a flattering, effortless style that is edgy, high fashion and uniquely suited to each client’s individual beauty and flair.

In addition, Chaie has always believed in passing on her knowledge and love for her craft to everyone around her, and loves teaching clients how to make the most of their cuts after they leave the salon.

Having started her training under Shannon Rha, owner of Shannon Hair in Valencia, CA, Chaie continued to hone her craft while assisting Sally Hersberger at Sally Hershberger LA and later at Meche Salon in Beverly Hills.

When faced with the unprecedented challenges of 2020, Chaie remained resilient and dedicated to continuing to provide excellent service to her clients. Navigating through this difficult period strengthened and enlightened Chaie and gave her a higher purpose.

And thus, Onyx on Madison was born. Chaie joined forces with one of her best friends and greatest supporters, top colorist Daniel M., to create an intimate, beautiful space where the client’s experience is always the highest priority and where their fellow artists can create, have access to the best professional education and live their dreams.

Chaie is thrilled to welcome her clients, old and new, to Onyx on Madison!

My journey through the hair world began 15 years ago. What began as a part time Front Desk Coordinator position while attending Art School quickly evolved into a rewarding Career. As a first generation daughter helping my Mami sell beauty products, to working the flea market with my Abuelita (Grandmother), I adopted an entrepreneurial spirit. Beginning in a corporate world and transitioning to independent businesses, I developed an eye for establishing a culture within unique salon environments. Being in a salon I thrived in the creative space surrounded by small business owners. My intuitive, caring nature combined with my experience in the business world served as a solid foundation which helped elevate my contribution to the industry.




Lexy Vazquez is originally from OC, but began her career as a hairstylist in 2008 in El Paso, TX. As a child, she always knew she wanted to be an artist of some sort. Hair allowed her to be just that, and it became a constant in her life. Her adventurous spirit and time in the military allowed her to live and work behind the chair in different parts of Texas, Germany, Hawai'i and Washington. After many moves, she finally decided it was time to come home and set down roots. Her unique life experiences exposed her to diverse hair types and textures and inspired her to seek texture education. She is certified in the Forever Curls Method and has attended numerous education events to perfect her craft. She specializes in Dimensional Lived-in Color and Cuts on all textures. Lexy prides herself in creating an inclusive space in her chair where all clients can feel seen, heard and beautiful.

From the early age of 7 years old, I knew I wanted to become a hairstylist. I grew up surrounded by a family of hairstylists and barbers, which paved the way for me to explore the possibilities of this profession. I was born in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico. Surrounded by the ocean breeze and the rich culture. Then I moved to a small town called Blythe, California, where all you see is miles and miles of dry desert. The time in Blythe was isolating, but that’s where I learned to practice and perfect my craft. There were not many opportunities there, so I decided to take the leap of faith and move to LA in 2018. The past few years have been filled with incredible growth and opportunity since moving to the city. Fast forward now, and with 8+ years of experience, I specialize in blonding, color corrections, cuts, and extensions. I am always aspiring to learn and gain knowledge about the latest trends. As my love for my craft continues to grow.
