Rita Hazan
Over the past decade plus, native New Yorker Rita Hazan has established herself as one of the most sought-after colorists in the world, known for setting beauty trends and reinventing celebrities. She has most recently created signature color looks for stars such as Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Simpson, Jaime Pressly, Debra Messing, Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, Keyshia Cole and Renee Zellweger. In addition to this wealth of creativity, Rita owns and operates her namesake salon, a 6000 sq. ft. full service beauty mecca located at 720 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. The loyalty of Rita’s celebrity and personal clientele is attributed to her innate understanding of what looks best on women from a woman’s perspective, her keen eye for detail and her warm, down-to-earth personality. Many of her celebrity clients regularly fly Rita to meet them where they are because they refuse to have anyone else touch their color. Rita has been a personal favorite of celebrities who are on tour for a stretch of time, when they only want “their people” with them. Despite this demanding travel schedule, Rita makes time for all her regular clients, both in NYC and Los Angeles, which she visits once a month to tend to her west coast clientele. Every client, celebrity or not, receives Rita’s full unswerving attention, leaving Rita’s hands feeling a little (or a lot) more glamorous then when they arrived.
