Beauty Nostalgia: Reminiscing With…Rita Hazan

-------

Apple-Pectin-ShampooBeauty Nostalgia is a weekly column on Beauty Counter in which we ask influencers, tastemakers, and some of our favorite industry experts to wax poetic on the sticks, salves, and sprays that helped shape who they are today.

 

The Pro: Rita Hazan, celebrity hair colorist and founder of Rita Hazan Salon.

 

The Product: “When I was going to beauty school, I used to perm my aunt Esther’s hair. I was about sixteen or seventeen at the time, living at home with my parents in Midwood, Brooklyn. I went to the beauty supply store to get these perm rods and I remember finding Apple Pectin Acid pH Perm Shampoo there. I loved the smell of the original Apple Pectin shampoo—it was so fruity and everyone was obsessed with it at beauty school. So I was, like, really excited to find the same thing for permed hair. My aunt was about twenty at the time, and I permed her hair every two months, washing out the solution in the kitchen sink. What’s funny is that my Aunt Esther is now the hair model for my Root Concealer; she’s been my guinea pig all these years. She doesn’t have a perm anymore and my taste for scents has evolved a bit (I’m more into the white florals and tuberose fragrances these days), but back in the eighties, Apple Pectin really was the coolest thing.”
