So who’s behind it? Famed colorist Rita Hazan helped whip up the look last night (how perfect are the darker brows and roots with the light hair color?) and she told us all about it.
Fashionista: What was the process like of creating the color? What did Beyonce request?
Rita Hazan: When I saw her cut, I knew the color had to be soft but powerful. She wanted to keep her natural color as a grown out look with roots to give it an edge. But, she allowed me creative freedom, which is amazing for a colorist to be able to do especially on a superstar like Beyonce. And she lets me get to the end result in my own way, which here was a beautiful champagne blonde.
How is Beyonce to work with? Was she nervous about the change?
I think she was ready for a big change. She has conquered the world at 31 with a new baby and a sold-out concert tour. She was relaxed and excited.
Tell us about the coloring process you used.
I highlighted her strands one small area at a time. I was very precise in how I placed the highlights and wanted the color to be soft and sexy. For this, I chose to highlight her hair with champagne and summer blonde tones. By strategically highlighting her whole head in very tiny sections, we achieved the perfect look.
What was her reaction like?
She loved it and I think she felt really beautiful (’cause she is really beautiful!).
Have you already gotten requests for similar colors?
Not yet! We just did her color last night.
