July 10, 2011 | 11:49 PM
Personal Style: Chaz DeanThe owner of Chaz Dean Studio and creator of WEN products, is passionate about his shampoo-free cleanser that promises to clean without any harshness.


My hair right now:

Faux-hawk shag-1980s rock and roll influenced by David Bowie and Duran Duran.

The celeb I would most like to makeover:
Jessica Alba. I'd like to see her with deeper, richer tones that are more flattering to her complexion.

My favorite tool: My Super Solano hair dryer.

The best thing about my job is: I have the opportunity to make people look beautiful.

The best job I ever had as a hairdresser: Opening my salon as a working stylist and launching my product line WEN.

My secret weapon: Turning negative occasions into something positive.

If I hadn't become a hairdresser I would have: Been a fashion designer.

My perfect day involves: Hiking, yoga, pilates, swimming, playing with the puppies and working on my product line.

Most people would be surprised to learn that: I shoot all my own artwork for the WEN products and models for my brochures.

My secret talent: I can take anything simple from my refrigerator and pantry and cook a gourmet meal.

I became a hairdresser because: I started off as a photographer, and saw that the key elements-make-up and hair-did not always complement each other, so it naturally encouraged me to take the next step and learn how to do hair, which is where I found my true calling.
