Ask any woman and she'll tell you that achieving the perfect hair color can take hours.
That's right, Rita Hazan the colorist behind Bey's lightened locks exclusively tells E! News that while the edgy 'do was certainly the main attraction, the brilliant blond color played an important supporting role.
Hazan expertly dyed the star's hair to a soft, glamorous hue that gave off an Old Hollywood vibe with a modern edge; making sure that the roots were left natural while the ends were brightened to a perfect summery champagne blond shade.
She also paid special attention to make sure that Bey's locks weren't damaged in the process, and noted that the singer was "very excited the whole time, happy to cut it and happy to do the color."
Aww! We couldn't be happier with the outcome of the incredible transformation and applaud Jay-Z's leading lady for the bold update.
"I think it is sexy, strong, a statement, empowering," says Hazan. "She always had beautiful, gorgeous tons of hair and for her to strip down and reveal herself this way is a very powerful moment."
Indeed it was!
And given the diva's tremendous following, we had to ask Hazan if she anticipates a trickle-down effect from fans hoping to follow suit with the fresh hairstyle.
"I said, 'You are going to put me out of business! Everyone loves Beyoncé hair,' and she said ‘You will be all right," Hazan laughed. "I wouldn't be surprised if it starts a trend. I think it's modern and old Hollywood at the same time. She's a beautiful girl. She can basically do anything."
