The Hive Los Angeles

Quality hair services for the value minded

Rita / Senior Stylist



Rita moved to Los Angeles in the summer of 2017 and has been behind the chair for over 7 years now having received her Cosmetology license from The Aveda Institute of Chicago in 2010. Besides being a trained hair stylist, Rita also earned her Bachelors of Arts degree in Art History and minor in Business from the University of Utah (2007).

If you ask what she loves most about her craft, Rita says, “I love creating multi-dimensional color whether it be traditional highlights, balayage or single progress color. Hair is such a neat, reflective, and manipulative canvas where I like to see how different colors play with each other.

Her favorite Davines product is Medium Hold Hairspray because it’s a dry hair spray that never gets sticky, is touchable and builds in strength. It’s a versatile product anyone can use.

Before moving to the city of angels, Rita lived in Chicago for almost 10 years. She’s just started exploring her new city, but loves taking her dog to the beach and on hikes; cooking new recipes at home; going out to eat; visiting museums and other arts and cultural exhibits; discovering new music; and Rita is working on visiting all 59 national parks!
