Protégé of: Rita Hazan, celebrity colorist

Hair history: “I was an art major in college, a painter. Right out of college, I worked in the corporate world in sales, and I wasn’t loving what I was doing. I wanted to do something more creative, and hair color is a lot like painting every day.”

What she’s learned from Rita: “Highlights should be an accent to pretty color. You should wear your hair; it shouldn’t wear you. She’s an expert at creating a color for someone that they are comfortable with—if you pick a color that is too bold for someone’s personality, they won’t be happy with it. You find a hair color that fits the person.”

Desert-island product: “Anything from the Nigel line—it’s very conditioning. If your hair is healthy, the color will read better.”


“When Carrie started working with me, I immediately saw her natural talent,” says Hazan. “She has the ability to see color in a very detailed way. She also has a great sense of style and she shows it through her work—gorgeous tones. I like that my colorists listen and pay attention to their clients and know what they want even when they don’t know.”
