Master colorist Rita Hazan is known for creating signature styles for the likes of Madonna, Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez, Michelle Williams and Britney Spears. But despite a hefty A-list clientele, Hazan's Fifth Avenue oasis of style is manned by a down-to-earth staff who operate by Hazan's manifesto: "no attitude." Ultra-perfect, look-but-don't-touch coifs are out. Instead, Hazan's staff deals in natural, flattering, sexy color, and non-trendy, shape-holding cuts that work with the hair that's there. Hazan's own line of hair care products are available to take home, as well as mini Snickers and Reese's to sweeten the deal.
Men and women of all hair colors can try Hazan’s POP for a blast of a whole new hue, find temporary fixes for their roots with Root Concealer and Root Concealer Highlights, or use Foaming Color Gloss to keep hair looking its best in between treatments.
Single with Rita is $250, highlights are $650.
