Best Hair Stylist: 9 Salon Superstars
Hello friends! We told you about the best men’s hairstyles a few weeks ago, and today we are going to celebrate 9 of world’s best hairstylists.
A celebrity can’t just roll out of bed and show up on the Red Carpet; they need the best hair stylist to celebrify them for the cameras. When your scissors cut the hair of Angelina Jolie, Mila Kunis, or the Kardashians, you’re doing something right. These Rockstar stylists are masters of color, style, and innovation, making them the very best in the industry.
Not even the snarkiest fashion vultures on E News could find much fault with Jen Atkin’s understated hair styles. In 2016, The New York Times called her “The Most Influential Hairstylist in the World” and her clients include Kim and Chloe Kardashian, Katy Perry, and Jessica Alba.
Many people maintain that Oribe, based out of Miami, is the world’s best hair stylist. Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Beyoncé—true artists are known by one name, and Oribe has certainly cemented himself in the halls of hair gods. His clients include Rihanna, Scarlett Johansson, and Jennifer Lopez. A haircut with Oribe will run you around $400.
Sally is a personal favorite. She was arguably the first female hair stylist to rise to stardom in the public eye. Her drive to keep setting new trends landed her jobs in high fashion make-up rooms as well the sets of award-winning movies. She has studios in New York and Los Angeles.
Calling Hiro Haraguchi a perfectionist is an understatement. Meticulous, creative, and fresh, a Haraguchi haircut is guaranteed to be flawless every time you sit in the chair. Vera Wang, who certainly has an appreciation for style, frequents his salon in Manhattan, as well as Friends actress Lisa Kudrow.
The first thing you’ll notice about Ted Gibson is his bright, beaming smile. After that, you might notice the bald head. . . he can cut his hair with a $5 disposable razor, but a haircut at his 5th Avenue salon in New York costs up to $850. If you flip through the magazines at your salon, you’ll see his work in Vogue, Vanity Fair, and Allure. Making an appointment may land you a seat next to Angelina Jolie, Mila Kunis, or Anne Hathaway.
The entire hair world bends the knee to the King of Color. Josh Wood is a living legend for his creative, technical, and eye-catching feats of hair coloring. Josh has said that he thinks, sees, and hears in color. He is absorbed by color, and his colorful vision has seen his work on the runways of Gucci, Versace, and Louis Vitton. In terms of hair coloring, he is unarguably the best hair stylist. If you go to his salon, his hand-picked team of color mavens will wow you every time.
7. Marie Robinson
Marie and her partner, renowned hair stylist Obell Ojadou, work out of Marie Robinson Salon in New York City. She has been a regular feature in Allure magazine, and her powerhouse list of clients includes Emma Stone, Kristen Stewart, and Anne Hathaway. Marie’s brand is still growing, and her hairstyles increasingly pepper the Red Carpet. While not currently the number one best hair stylist, check back in a few years—she may very well be at the top of the list.
8. Harry Josh
While no hairier than any other Josh, he is certainly the best hair stylist. However, you are in for a hairy situation if you walk into his New York salon strapped for cash—his “simple” package is $175. Gwyneth Paltrow, Cameron Diaz, and Reese Witherspoon trust him with their hair, but that’s hair-ly scratching the surface. Tina Fey, Kristen Wiig, Natalie Portman, Jennifer Garner—the list is long. However, his first glamorous celebrity clients got their cut in his less-than glamorous apartment studio. His work space is rather laissez-hair. With those credentials, it would be folly-icle to leave him off our list.
9. Andy LeCompte
Andy is arguably the best hair stylist who only operates out of L.A., with Vogue claiming it is “The Most Celeb-heavy Beauty Spot” in the city. Even the most famous clients probably have to put their names on a celebrity waiting list. Penelope Cruz, Madonna, Megan Fox, Demi Moore, and Reese Witherspoon are just a few names on the long list. He couldn’t even fit all of his elite clients in the salon at the same time.
