It was very, very cool to meet Christina Hendricks last night, the newly announced Clairol’s Nice ‘n Easy Hair Color Ambassador, and most recognized for her role as Joan Harris on “Mad Men.” She was absolutely lovely, as was her new hair shade, going from a vibrant red to a softened glowing, slightly strawberry hue with Nice ‘n Easy Permanent Color in 8G, Natural Medium Golden Blonde (see here for a red/blonde before/after on her). Both my mom and I had gone even blonder in our early twenties with Nice ‘n Easy (we used the 101 blonde shade back then), so it was nice to hear that the brand has a whopping 45 natural shades, and retails for only $7.99; pretty great! Her color transition looks so great in tone and highlights, that I’m thinking that perhaps I should #ShiftaShade too!
During New York Fashion Week, I was lucky to able to spend some additional time with TRESemmé hair stylists to personally use its newest products, as well as see them in motion backstage at several shows. The new Perfectly (un)Done collection, Get Sleek, Max the Volume, and Make Waves handle a variety of hair needs for contemporary styling possibilities. Some of my absolute favorites include the Perfectly (un)Done Sea Salt Spray ($6.99), Perfectly (un)Done Wave Creating Sea Foam, Get Sleek Blow Dry Balm, Max the Volume Root Lifting Cream, and Make Waves Shaping Gel Cream. I don’t know what’s better; how effective TRESemmé’s new hair product lineup is, or that everything comes in at under $7! Which product are you most excited to try?
AG Hair Care recently launched a dry shampoo category, with four options that include Simply Dry Shampoo, along with three others that include root-boosting color components for quick touch-ups in between coloring sessions. I’ve been using the Simply Dry sine finding a color match for red is always a challenge, and am pleased with the results, adding the right amount of absorption power and texture to my fine tresses. AG’s Dry Shampoo comes in a travel size 1 oz version for $8.95 at Ulta, while the full size version is $28 each.
