Danita is the other hair stylist and inmate at Litchfield Penitentiary alongside Sophia Burset. She's been mentioned many times, but has not made an appearance, making her an unseen character.

Personality Edit

Danita is a hairdresser, but probably does not play her role properly, because Sophia calls her "butcher" and says she would not leave Danita near her with a pair of scissors.

Biography Edit

Season One Edit

She is mentioned as one of the prison hairdressers, having a rivalry with Sophia Burset. She attempted to do Tricia's cornrows, but the results were so bad that "even Black Cindy couldn't fix them".

Season Two Edit

Danita continues to be mentioned, without having any appearance on the show.

Season Three Edit

When Burset is in the midst of a transphobic war, all the inmates began attending Danita's salon, leaving Sophia's salon empty all day. Taystee goes to Danita for her weave, making Sophia angry that Taystee doesn't want to go near her because of all the drama and claiming "she can see those tracks from down the hallway."

Season Four Edit

With Sophia in SHU, Danita's salon probably remained full every day because of the large flow of detainees and the fact that Sophia's salon was used for the Maria gang.

Season Five Edit

Even though she had no appearance at the show, her fate was unknown during the riot in Season Five and she was probably evacuated from prison with all the other inmates. ("Storm-y Weather")
