Two words: Hair goals. We all want to be it — you know, the girl (or the guy) with the head-turning locks.

The first step to a good hair day — every single day (and night) of the week — is a good stylist; one that you can trust to tame your tresses. But, how do you know a hair whisperer when you see one?

This list of hair hotshots in Dallas has you covered. They are ’do’ing it up right and working their mane magic.

We’ll even forgive you if you do the pageant wave upon leaving their salon chairs.

He might as well wear a crown, because Charlie Price is considered hair royalty in Dallas — and way beyond. Not surprisingly, his social hair game is on fire, with legions of locks-loving followers watching his every brush of hair. But, making women look and feel their best is just “another day in paradise” for him. His relaxed, unconventional, and unpretentious approach yields effortless waves and no-maintenance color. He’s also styled Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, and Charlize Theron, to name just a few. And, he's worked backstage during New York Fashion Week for notable houses like Chanel and Alice + Olivia. Yep, another day in paradise.

They’re the dream team. He cuts; she colors; and it’s the best marriage — for your mane. Johnny and Kate Rodriguez work out of their eponymous salon in Inwood Village. Go to him for men’s and women’s precision cuts along with makeover recommendations and extensions. Go to her for women’s color — especially vibrant reds and balayage — along with extensions, keratin treatments, and special occasion styles and updos.

Hair isn’t just Courtney Jones’ job; it’s her art. As a hair artist and cutting educator, she specializes in precision cuts, long layers, men’s cuts, bobs, keratins, special event styling, and Brazilian blowout treatments — which is to say, she’s pretty much got your hair covered any way you cut it.

Recognized by the prestigious North American Hairstyling Awards in 2017, Paige Roberts is no shrinking violet when it comes to the styling scene. She pays attention to form, shape, texture, and color when it comes to hair and loves every aspect of being a colorist, whether it be fashion hues,  dimensional brunettes, or her favorite challenge: blondes. You’ll likely see her using the technique of hair painting for added artistry and depth. By the way, she’s also a bit of a double threat, having been a makeup artist before taking up hair — should you want to get your face painted, too.

His Instagram fan club of 17,600+ knows all about the good “stylez” that Juan Flores serves up on a daily basis. And, his social celebrity is 100-percent justified, with his highlight reel including impressive, lush tonality and glossier-than-you-thought-possible strands. He’s also styled hair for numerous fashion shows and photo shoots.

Raised in the mountains of Alaska, Max Gillies developed an early appreciation for natural beauty. He really upped his hair game in Los Angeles, though, where he had the opportunity to assist and mentor under some of the most highly regarded names in the color world. He specializes in the art of creating natural, rich, sun-kissed color and brings a taste of the Los Angeles beach to Texas. Consider him a vacation in a bottle — for your hair.

She calls herself a hair magician, and it’s easy to see why. Kinome works her strand sorcery by simultaneously celebrating the individual beauty of each of her clients while elevating their hair through her talented, artistic approach.

You’ll easily be salivating over the strands that senior hairstylist and makeup artist Jessica Kerley perfects at Tangerine Salon. Her specialties run the gamut from advanced color to balayage, highlights, full color, women's cuts, men's cuts, formal styles, finishing and styling, full face makeup, special event makeup, and bridal makeup. Not only is she a bombshell-maker, Tangerine is the trusted salon of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. That said, you probably can’t go wrong no matter which stylist you choose at any of their locations, which also include Coppell, Highland Village, Allen, and Frisco.

Hair becomes a fairytale in the hands of Lacy Bennett. She specializes in “lived-in” hair and textured cuts, but one of her favorite things is color and color correction where the true art of tonality and pigmentation can really come forth. No question, though, that there’s plenty of fantasy tied up in the strands she sends forth into the world.

He loves everything about hair color — from bright, platinum blondes to deep, dimensional redheads. But, his relationship with his clients is first and foremost, as he believes honesty is the best policy and always keeps a realistic and hair-healthy perspective when advising others about color.

Her specialties include blondes and balayage, and she shares her secrets with students in her hair color classes at Salon Pompeo. But, she’s certainly not afraid of galaxy or unicorn locks, either. Shauna also documents her love of all things beautiful on her blog, ShaunaAlene.com — and, yes, that includes hair tips and tricks.

The proof is in the pictures, as the transformations of tresses are pretty unreal. But, it’s all in a day’s work for Katie Tellor, owner of Abstra{kt) Studio. From Los Angeles to New York City, she left no stone unturned when it came to fine-tuning her skills before blazing her own trail in Dallas. She was one of the first in the area to become an expert at hair extensions and balayage color treatments. And, she's certified and educates, too. In short, she knows her stuff. She has a special affinity for blondes, balayage, and extensions — if you couldn’t tell by her Instagram page. Sure, the salon is in Frisco, But, what’s a short-ish drive for a ’do that goes the distance.
