Chaz Dean believes in a natural, healthy lifestyle, so it’s no wonder his approach to hairstyling follows suit. At his Hollywood salon, the Chaz Dean Studio, his dedication to harmony and holistic methods quickly become obvious: On the outside, there is no signage advertising his businesses at all, and ivy-covered walls surround the mid-city bungalows to preserve the inner sanctuary. Upon entering, visitors are treated to an oasis of lush foliage, trickling fountains, quiet sitting areas and other peaceful décor.
His products and techniques are equally as healthy: Chaz's own hair care line is made with natural ingredients, and he never uses bleach or developer with high levels of peroxide when coloring hair. A firm believer in educating his clients on how to maintain the health and integrity of their hair, Dean teaches that shampoos, bleach and irons are extremely damaging and drying to the hair. So dedicated is he to this philosophy that his WEN® product line does not include a shampoo. Rather, his cleansing conditioner is a single product that both cleanses and conditions, without the use of sodium laurel sulfate or other damaging detergents found in shampoos. He has not used shampoo on himself or clients since 1993.
In keeping with this holistic approach, Dean’s choice for hair coloring products is L’Oreal’s Majirel and INOA lines, because they are low ammonia/ammonia free. Thus, with no bleach or strong developers in use, Dean’s salon is virtually fume-free, making both the environment and his coloring process safe and comfortable for even his most scent sensitive clientele.
Chaz believes in living his life as a unified whole. The same energy and focus he brings to WEN® and the Chaz Dean Studio he also brings to his personal life and family.
