Best of Masters: Beth Minardi

Celebrity hair colorist Beth Minardi has dedicated her career to elevating salon coloring to an art form. As an internationally acclaimed salon colorist, Beth is recognized as one of the world's leading experts in all phases of coloring. 

Beth enjoys an impressive list of celebrity clients, including Cameron Diaz, Brad Pitt, Julianne Moore, Kirsten Dunst, and others. Interviewed by Winn Claybaugh, this NAHA Lifetime Achievement Award recipient shows no signs of slowing down.

“Beth Minardi is one class act! I'm sure some would think she is unapproachable because of her success, both as a hair color guru and as a New York City high-end salon owner, but they couldn't be more wrong. Beth is one of the most generous (and tough!) mentors the beauty industry has ever known. I'm proud tocall her a dear friend, and I'm honored to share her message with you.” – Winn Claybaugh
