We were all taken by surprise when Beyoncé released her 5th album on December 13th, Beyoncé . What’s even more surprising is that everyone involved (from hair to makeup artists and stylists) was able to keep it a secret.
Now that the secret’s out, we have the inside scoop from colorist Rita Hazan, who was responsible for Beyoncé’s gorgeous hair color in her new music videos.
Beyoncé is not only one of the greatest talents of all time, but she is also a beauty trendsetter:
“Beyoncé loves to change her color and style, which is apparent in each of these videos. She can basically have any hair color as long as it’s with the right tone and style. She’s so beautiful and makes it easy,” says hair color authority Ritz Hazan.
Showing her willingness to change her hair color, Beyoncé flaunted blue strands in the Superpower video. To achieve a similar look at home, use the Rita Hazan Pop Color ($18.00 each) in Blue to temporarily add vibrant highlights, streaks, tips and all-over color, without using tints, for a fun hair color without the commitment.
Directions: Best to use on dry, styled hair. Hold the can 12-inches from hair and spray continuously. Cover clothing to protect from errant color. Vibrant color dries in less than 5-minutes.

Rita prefers to use highlights to create a multidimensional look for the star. We asked Rita about Beyoncé‘s dark roots and why they worked so well:
“The roots give it an edgier look, and with her olive skin, the darkness at the roots is needed to add depth so that she can go very light while complimenting her skintone. A solid blonde can wash out anyone with an olive skintone, so the roots help to give the color depth,” Rita explained.
Get the look at home by using the Rita Hazan Root Concealer ($25.00) for temporary color. “Many stylists pack it in their kits and use it on shoots to give hair depth at the root,” Rita said about her award-winning product.
Directions: Best to use on dry, styled hair. Hold can 6-12 inches from hair and spray roots in a light steady stream. Don’t over-spray – a little goes a long way. Available in Dark Brown/Black, Light Brown, Red, Blonde, Dark Blonde, Red and Blonde at RitaHazan.com, Ulta and Sephora.
