Celeb colorist Rita Hazan shares the secrets of her superstar client’s hair. First she revealed the skinny on Jessica Simpson’s perfect blonde wedding hair color, and now she’s telling all about J.Lo.

Rita tells us that she reunited with Jennifer Lopez this past weekend. “I met her years ago when she was a brunette, “ Rita recalled. “When I first saw her, she had dark hair and I felt like it was too harsh for her skin tone and her personality so I created a honey highlighted hair color for her, and people went crazy over it.”

The colorist said her main goal with Jennifer’s summer color was to add more contrast and dimension. “I gave her a chocolate base with golden blonde highlights, and used my Ultimate Shine Blonde Gloss on her.” Hazan explained that this the particular shade worked so because the darker base adds contrast to give her an edgier, cooler look.”

For all you DIYers, Rita suggests maintaining your color at-home with her Ultimate Shine Color Gloss Collection ($26 each), which comes in five shades – including the heretofore mentioned blonde. The glosses add lustrous shine to help color-treated hair maintain its vibrancy between salon visits.

You can find the gloss collection at Rita Hazan Salon,, Sephora and Ulta.
