CHAZ DEAN Studio
Los Angeles stylist Chaz Dean has a celebrity clientele list that reads like a who’s who in Hollywood, and yet the humble-hearted hair designer has a Zen-like aura surrounding him that instantly puts clients at ease. Born in Vermont, Dean was adopted as a baby, then grew up in New Jersey and the Pennsylvania countryside until he was 13, when his family relocated to Southern California. He graduated from high school in the small town of Simi Valley, California, then his family moved again to Phoenix, Arizona. In high school, he had taken photography courses, and developed a passion for it during a cross-country trip with his family. After chronicling the entire trip back and forth across the United States, Dean decided to pursue photography as a career. After attending commercial photography courses in Phoenix, Dean moved to Los Angeles to make his way as a photographer. “L.A. was so big though, that I decided to go to cosmetology school to enhance my career and photography,” he says. The rest is history. Celebrity stylist Chaz Dean presents WEN®, an industry-changing product line that is the first ever to exclude ordinary shampoo. What sets WEN® apart from the rest is its cleansing conditioner, a single-step process that cleanses and conditions the hair simultaneously.
