I'll see you at the Southern Women's Show

I'll be introducing celebrity colorist Rita Hazan on Sept. 12 when she makes an appearance at the Southern Women’s Show from 1 to 2 p.m. on the Fashion Stage at the Convention Center uptown.

I’ll also be at the Charlotte Observer booth at the show from 2 to 4 p.m. Sept. 14 to help guests pinpoint their personal style, so if you’re there please drop by and say hello! (Here's the link to the page on the Southern Women's Show web site that details all the appearances at the show from Observer writers:

Sept. 11, Hazan will also meet her fans from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Ulta at Rivergate Shopping Center, 13540 Hoover Creek Blvd.

Hazan has a namesake salon on Fifth Avenue in her native New York, and her celebrity clients include Katy Perry, Jessica Simpson, Beyoncé and Jennifer Lopez.

When I interviewed Hazan by phone recently, she told me she jets all over the globe to take care of her clients’ hair. Because she travels so much, when she entertains she prefers to invite friends over for a casual dinner to just hang out and catch up. “I’m too busy to cook, so I either hire someone to come over and cook, or I ask my mother to help,” Hazan said. “My mother loves to cook!”

Here's the link to the full Q&A with Hazan where you can read more about how she built her brand, that includes an incredible line of products I'm obsessed with that are made for color treated hair:
