J.Lo's Colorist Reveals Why She Took Her From Brunette to Honey Blonde Years Ago

Corbis (2)

Muy caliente weather calls for muy caliente hair, which is why Jennifer Lopez's go-to colorist, Rita Hazan, recently took the star even lighter for summer. Hazan says of meeting Jenny from the block years ago: "When I first saw her, she had dark hair and I felt like it was too harsh for her skin tone, and her personality. I created a honey-highlighted hair color for her, and people went crazy over it."

Just this weekend the hair guru decided to switch things up once again, adding more color and dimension to Jen's famous mane. "I gave her a chocolate brown base with golden blonde highlights and used my Ultimate Shine Blonde Gloss on her—the darker base adds contrast for an edgier, cooler look," says Hazan. 

What do you think of Jennifer's lightened-up locks? Are you a fan or do you dig her slightly darker strands? Leave a comment below!
