Jamaican-born Lacy Redway has worked on some of the most iconic names in Hollywood. Redway actively celebrates natural hair on her feed while pushing for the change so desperately needed in the industry, however she’s clearly a master of every texture and type.
Master. Of. Curls. All types, all textures. His talent is not to be outstripped by his passion for natural hair and texture. Evan has a very clear vision of what the textured hair landscape should look like and offers helpful advice for stylists and curly hair enthusiasts everywhere. Pro tip? Don't miss skip his salon's IGTV. So here for it.
Disclosure: Evan Joseph Salon is powered by Boulevard. But we'd still love him even if he wasn't.
One of our favorite colorists works at Sally Hershberger, Los Angeles (another Boulevard user), and his feed focuses on stunning hand-painted balayage, with a dash of everything else sunkissed, lived in, neon sherbet, all done to perfection and of course, plus loads of well-produced technique vids.
Black is King. Over 40 custom wigs in less than a week. Beyonce.
This bicoastal colorist has worked with an endless list of celebrity actors and musicians, as well as some of the top labels in the fashion world. He’s represented by the Wall Group and is part of Frontline Fortnight, an organization that is giving services to frontline workers for two weeks this fall. When Jeremy is in LA, he works at Benjamin Salon. His feed is a melange of inspo, activism, realness, and stunning editorial.
(NB: Boulevard’s Shanalie Wijesinghe is pals with Jeremy and is also a part of Frontline Fortnight. It’s not the only reason we adore him, but it definitely helps.)
Lupita Nyong'o, Solange, Nicki Minaj: Kendall Dorsey’s celeb client list runs deep. Like many of the star-stylists on this list, Dorsey gives back to the community, most recently contributing to The BIPOC Beauty School Marathon in August.
Per usual, we've saved our most subversive pick for last. Bicoastal stylist Dylan Chavles is truly ahead of the future. Dylan is known for her outré aesthetic, collabing with the likes of Numero, Homme Girls, CR Men, and Vogue Thailand. But the clincher with Dylan is that she gets about a million bonus points in life for using her premium thirst trap content as a vehicle to bring awareness to geopolitical issues getting low coverage in the media. And if that wasn't enough her celeb drops include Juliette Lewis and punk rock legend Richard Hell. We bow, madam.
