Celebrity go-to #goals. Chris Appleton isn’t just eye-candy (we’re not mad about it), his one-of-kind, forward looking styles will have you screenshotting/pinning/reposting endlessly. Did we mention he was also the mastermind behind Kim Kardashian’s new platinum transformation?


Pastel dreams start in Vegas—just ask one of our favorite colorist’s, Shelley Gregory. Having first tried crayon colors on a whim, her beautifully blended springtime shades never fail to dictate the trends. No matter what we have going on that day, her lilacs, mints and roses cheer us up.


If you’re not following celebrity colorist Cassondra Kaeding, you’re gonna want to get on that ASAP. With a growing roster of A-list clients including Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Olivia Munn and our EIC Jen Atkin, this LA-based colorist is on fire. When she’s not painting La La Land at Mare Salon, you can catch her in SF, NYC and the Middle East.


Clean lines and pure color dictate Kristin’s minimalist IG account, which will have you equal parts grateful for rich tones and speed dialing your stylist. No matter what you’re going for, this is can-do hair.


Meche colorist Matt Rez has been gaining tons of momentum as of late. He’s balyaging everyone from Lea Michele to Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad. Needless to say, his IG is an endless stream of #manespiration.


Jean Pierre is known for his blonde–so if you’re on the hunt for mega blonde inspo overload, you’re going to want to click follow on his account, stat. While Jean Pierre calls Allen M salon in LA home, he also frequents other cities like Miami.

To say that Cherin Choi’s IG is LIT is an understatement–the girl knows how to have a good feed filled with plenty of inspo to peruse. Based at Benjamin Salon in the Arts District, she’s known for her versatility.
