We are all about that hair — and makeup too! Here at Stylish, we’ve never seen a hairstyle or makeup trend we couldn’t talk about for days on end, so we started a podcast to dish on all the latest beauty news — from hits and misses on the red carpet to celebrity hair and makeup gurus’ dos and don’ts. Each week, Us Weekly beauty director Gwen Flamberg talks with some of the best in the biz about what’s new in hair, makeup and style in our Get Tressed With Us podcast. Listen above!

This week, Gwen and senior reporter Travis Cronin welcomed celebrity colorist extraordinaire Rita Hazan to the show to talk all things blonde Beyoncé. Hazan is the hands behind Queen B’s trend-setting and mesmerizing color — and she shared some of the secrets for how they change up the singer’s hair for her On the Run II Tour with Jay-Z. From the subtle shift Bey has made since Beychella to the homework her colorist gives her for maintenance, the Us Weekly team broke it all down.

But first: Gwen and Travis talk Tony Awards, specifically the best tressed winners of the night. On their A-List: Kerry Washington who looked expensive and sleek and Claire Danes who is back to reddish hair and rocked a bun that rivaled her baby bump. Last but not least, they name checked Thalia, who Travis explained rocked a gypsy pony — not a genie pony.

Then talk turns to the kick-off of On the Run II in Wales. While the costumes were certainly show-stopping (that balaclava though), Gwen and Travis agree that Beyonce’s hair is also an important part of her choreography. Hazan explains that she loves keeping her blonde — bear in mind, warm, bright blonde for Beyonce — not platinum blonde. Blonde hues are relative, y’all. “Beyonce works on her show so during our appointment I store that information for when I need to create a new look for her,” Hazan explains.

And while Beyonce’s color is star-worthy, Hazan reveals that the singer is just like most women — she’s a mom and short on time, so she creates color that’s livable and can be grown into long term with appointments spaced every three months or so.

That isn’t to say that Beyonce doesn’t have haircare homework, though. Hazan tells Us, “I leave her with a maintenance plan like I do all of my clients: shampoo, conditioner and gloss. That’s how her hair stays so gorgeous and bright as it blows on stage.”
