Best Blonde Colorist in Dallas
(updated January 2022)
Finding a colorist who you mesh well with and understands exactly what you want AND can deliver it is extremely hard to come by. Finding the perfect shade of platinum blonde that still has dimension with some buttery, slightly golden undertones is difficult to pull off and I spent over half a year trying out different Dallas salons and colorists only to be disappointed until Marnie Doxey came into my life. I am grateful to Stephanie Drenka for recommending Marnie to me! After commenting on the beauty of Stephanie’s balayage, I too, was on my way to Pinterest worthy blonde locks. Marnie was able to deliver exactly what I’ve been wanting and that’s why I believe that Marnie is the best blonde colorist in Dallas! The pictures speak for themselves.
Marnie works at Lost Hair Dresses in Dallas. The space is modern and welcoming wit natural light streaming in.
After scrolling through Marnie’s Instagram feed I knew I would be in good hands. Also, I must note that not only is she an amazing colorist she’s also great at cut, blow out, and extensions! I love how she styles my hair after each color session and leaves me with gorgeous, loose waves that look like I just spent the day next to the sea! Also, if you’re interested in extensions, Marnie is a true pro and started The Connected Method.

Prior to my appointment with Marnie I went through Pinterest and saved what I deemed ‘my perfect blonde’. It was great being able to review these pictures with her as she guided me in the right direction and let me know what her expert opinion was along the way. Since my quest to finding the best blonde colorist in Dallas had me booking at multiple salons and having to vet countless colorists, this also left my hair in an unbalanced state. Colorists color differently, especially when it comes to techniques used, and I will admit I had some brassy, uneven color going on of which I’m calling tiger stripes, so you get the picture – not ideal! Marnie to the rescue!
After reviewing and aligning, Marnie laid out what needed to happen next to get my hair to the blonde I love most and that involved three appointments. Even after just the first appointment (shown here) I was thrilled with the results! Now, after seeing Marnie three+ times she’s my go to girl for all things color and cut. I love my hair more and more each time! In fact, I’ll be there this week getting my color touched up for our maternity photoshoot.
Marnie is an extremely skilled colorist and is also an incredible person! I always look forward to getting to spend time with her. Our conversations are filled with laughs and this time spent together doing hair has even led us to also become friends. The best! As you can see in the picture below she has a beautiful, fun, optimistic personality and she clearly loves what she does. It’s refreshing and uplifting! She rocks a blow out and I always leave feeling extra beautiful and confident. She even taught me how to recreate these beautiful waves at home!
Being pregnant it’s become even more important to me that I’m using safer hair products. I’ve been using the below products on rotation and am pleased to report that not only does my blonde look great, it feels great too! So soft and vibrant!
Marnie also uses high quality, clean, and cruelty free products. My favorite brands being Rahua, RandCo, Davines, Virtue, and Kevin.Murphy. All of these are gentle, without the bad ingredients such as sulfates (SLS or SLES). Below I have listed out my must have products to keep my blonde bright, hydrated and properly toned.
Best Blonde Hair Products
*Lately I’ve been using Virtue and it’s been incredible for my hair. With postpartum and as my hormones fluctuate I’ve definitely experienced mild hair loss. Virtue has a new line, Flourish, that helps combat thinning hair. This US based company uses biotech-based hair care that repairs damage & strengthens all types and textures with Alpha Keratin 60ku®, an all-natural, vegan protein. Definitely give this one a try!
*I LOVE Davines! Ihave been using it for years and my hair looks and feels great. This Italian haircare company is B Corp certified and incorporates sustainable practices. Everything is very clean.
*All KEVIN.MURPHY hair products are sulphate free, paraben free and cruelty free. They soften the hair and repair chemical damage naturally.*
