    Rita Hazan

    > View portfolio

    For well over a decade, Rita Hazan has established herself as one of the most sought-after colorists in the world, known for setting beauty trends and reinventing celebrity looks. Hazan’s expertise as a colorist draws in loyal clientele who entrust her with their hair, giving Hazan complete creative freedom.

    Hazan works primarily on an instinct for colors that will best suit her clients. When consulting her clients on coloring, Hazan takes into account everything from personality and lifestyle, to profession and the current season.  Hazan finds that the most important factor in hair coloring is taking personality into account. “You don’t want your hair to overpower you,” says Hazan. “You don’t want your hair to wear you – you want to be able to wear your hair.”

    Born of Hazan’s wealth of creativity and talent is her namesake salon, a 6,000 sq. ft. full-service beauty mecca located at 720 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. Hazan has taken great strides in achieving what she calls an “upscale salon with a downtown vibe.” Hazan has created signature color looks for stars such as Katy Perry, Jessica Simpson, Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, and Renee Zellweger, to name a few. 

    Her expertise as a colorist led Hazan to release her first hair color care product in 2011, Root Concealer  for Gray Coverage, which she spent over four years perfecting and fine-tuning. The temporary color touch up spray, which currently comes in five shades, was the first of its kind and offers women and men an easy, effective and quick means to conceal their roots.

    Continuing her at-home color line, Rita introduced the Ultimate Shine Color Gloss Collection in 2014.The collection puts the shine back into your hair while keeping color-treated hair looking like you just stepped out of the salon, all month long. It’s the first salon-quality gloss that can be used at home to maintain tone and vibrancy.

    Despite a demanding travel schedule, Hazan maintains clientele both in NYC and Los Angeles. Every client, celebrity or not, receives Rita’s full, unwavering attention, and leaves feeling like a true celebrity.

    A native New Yorker, Hazan prides herself on taking a fun approach to being a colorist, while always maintaining a down-to-earth vibe.
