When you color your hair from a young age, maintaining it takes time, effort, and knowledge. Even the most seasoned hair-dyer (is that a thing?), needs a little input from a professional. That’s why I turned to Rita Hazan, celebrity colorist and owner of Rita Hazan Salon in NYC for the deets on hair rules, personalities, and Fall hair trends.
Choupette Social Girl: How do you make every day a good hair day?
Rita Hazan: I think it is important to use the right products when your washing your hair. Shampooing your hair will give you direction for how your hair will look for the next day or so.
CSG: What is your number one hair rule?
RH: Condition, condition, condition.
CSG: How do you choose the right hair color for your personality and for your skin tone?
RH: It depends on what you feel comfortable in. If the trend is to go really blonde and that is not your thing than I suggest picking a shade one or two shades lighter than your shade. The most important thing is that you feel comfortable with the color.
CSG: Talk to me about root concealers and touch up sprays. How well do they color match and why are so many people (including myself) afraid to use them?
RH: My Root Concealer Touch-Up Spray will color match anyone’s hair. For people who are afraid to use the spray they can use a touch up stick, like my new Root Concealer Temple + Brow Touch-Up Stick, because it is easy to use, it is not messy and it will match anyone’s hair color.
CSG: What are the top Fall hair trends?
RH: Subtle hair color with rich, warm tones like auburn and chocolates, toffee and honey.

It’s normally darker and warmer tones in the winter. When the season changes, you should change your hair color—in the same way that you change your makeup and wardrobe. It changes the entire vibe and energy of a person, and puts you
