Ironically, I first learned about celebrity hair colorist Rita Hazan from long time Hazan clients, Jessica and Tina Simpson.
After hearing their amazing reports of how great she was with highlights and color, I heard identical tidbits about her spectacular color work from celebrity hairstylist Ken Paves.
A few months after I first heard about Rita, I had the great privilege of being introduced to her by Ken. When I caught up with Rita, almost one year ago, she had just recently opened New York's Adir Salo with a partner.
Note: The Adir Salon eventually became The Rita Hazan Salon which is currently (2007) located at 720 5th Avenue on the 11th floor in New York City. For an appointment call 212-586-4242.
I was very impressed with Rita. Not only did she take time out of her insanely busy schedule to talk to me, I was taken with the fact that she is obviously very passionate about her work and doing her very best for her clients, whether they are well-known celebrities like Jennifer Lopez or her regular clients.
I recently caught up with Rita who has recently received some well deserved media attention.
Rita had some wonderful news about the many changes that are taking place with her salon which has been renamed The Rita Hazan Salon. The salon is doing very well. In fact, it is doing so well, that the salon is expanding. Rita also was excited about the news that she has added very talented people to her salon team.
L'Oreal And Phyto
Besides expanding and adding to the team of hair experts, Rita also has recently added a new L'Oreal product line designed specifically for professional hair colorists.
Rita is very particular about the product lines that she carries and favors only the very best for her clientele. Although Rita is a big fan of the salon's current Fresh and Phyto lines, she is always looking for new product lines with special focus on treating hair that is colored, which is her specialty.
Rita asked me what products I used on my highlighted hair and I told her that I was a religious user of the Phytojoba shampoo, Phytokarite conditioner and that Phyto 9 was my all time favorite product.
Rita, who has naturally curly hair, agreed that Phyto products are wonderful. She mentioned that she just started using the new PhytoCurl shampoo and really loves what it does for her curly hair. She told me that she uses Phytodefrisant when she blow dries her own colored hair straighte and it does an amazing job.
The Oprah Show
Rita, who work with Ken Paves on the Oprah show, recently did the Pop Challenge makeovers. She is scheduled to be on another Oprah show in the very near future "when scheduling is finalized".
Rita told me that during normal business hours, at their specific request, "all of her celebrity clients like Jessica, Brooke Shields, Naomi Campbell and Carmen Electra, to name a few, have their hair colored or highlighted in the main salon with all the other non-celebrity clients".

Working nonstop, Rita still sees hair color clients when she is in town. Whether you see Rita or not, it is important to know that every hairdresser and colorist that is part of the salon team was personally hand picked by Rita for their exceptional hairdressing or hair coloring talents and expertise. Rita's salon is known for their very happy client base.
