The Best Hair Colorists In L.A.

When it comes to celeb beauty, L.A. is, of course, home to the best colorists around. Whether you're looking for a radiant red, the brightest blondes, a rich raven hue, or a Mila Kunis-worthy ombré, we've rounded up the best beauty pros responsible for some of the loveliest celeb locks. And for those of you who want to kick off the New Year by revamping your beauty look, you'll definitely want to ditch the Manic Panic and put away the Kool-Aid, because we've got the top color experts in the City of Angels all right here. Sure, a trip to their chairs may cost a pretty penny (most start at $150 and can go way up), but if you want your mane to mimic Christina Hendricks', Rachel Bilson's, or Sienna Miller's, then you'll definitely want to book a few hours with one of Hollywood's hottest hair colorists, STAT.
