While Texas stylists are notorious for creating gravity-defying coifs, Douglas goes for a subtler approach. Dallas socialites seek her out for sexy, touchable volume and sleek event hair. A native of St. Louis, Douglas found her calling as a kid, doing makeovers on her friends in the neighborhood. She joined Frédéric Fekkai when it opened its tony Highland Park Village outpost in 2007, and is the only female stylist at the salon. At 33, Douglas is still a fan of makeovers, often performing transformative cuts for clients as they embark on new phases in their lives. “A woman’s satisfaction with her hair mirrors her satisfaction with her life,” she says.
