Danita was the other hair stylist and inmate at Litchfield Penitentiary alongside Sophia Burset. She was portrayed by an unknown actress.

Personality[edit | edit source]

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 | edit source]

Season One[edit | edit source]

She is seen in "I Wasn’t Ready", making sensual looks towards Piper. When Piper moves into The Ghetto, Danita is seen doing an inmates hair. In “WAC Pack” she is seen looking at Poussey and Taystee fighting over the TV and later is seen fighting when Healy comes in. Later on in the episode, she is seen naked getting into the shower during Nicky and Alex’s conversation. 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 | edit source]

Danita continues to be mentioned, and receiving criticism from Sophia Burset .

Season Three[edit | edit source]

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." ("We Can Be Heroes")

Season Four[edit | edit source]

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 Maria's Gang.

Season Five[edit | edit source]

Danita is mentioned by Sophia during a conversation with Elsie, indicating that she may still be in Litchfield and participating in the riot. ("Fuck, Marry, Frieda").

With the end of the riot, it is possible that Danita was evacuated from Litchfield by the CERT. ("Storm-y Weather")

Season Six[edit | edit source]

Danita was probably moved to another state, as were all Litchfield inmates after the riot.
