Stars take all the credit when it comes to their hair, but all of us would have luscious locs if we had someone else to keep our strands in tip-top shape all the time. Better yet, if we had these particular someones to tend to our manes at all times.

Next time you see one of your favorite celebs on the red carpet and declare them your hair crush, think about the hairstylists who made those ‘dos doable. And if you had no idea who hooked up your favorite ladies’ tresses on a regular, now you know.

Ursula Stephen became highly sought after when she gave Rihanna that signature pixie cut back in the day, completely ridding her of that good girl image and taking her all the way to bad. Ursie has also styled Sanaa Lathan, Jill Scott, Naomie Harris, Aja Naomi King, Jourdan Dunn, Laverne Cox, Winnie Harlow, and more.
