Professional hair color, at an unbelievably low cost!

Introducing U Color by Umberto – the cutting-edge line of foolproof professional color in a no-measure sachet system that is so simple, anyone can get salon-style results in the comfort of their home.

At a time where money is tight and women are really cutting back on spending, Umberto wanted to provide women with a product that allows them to both look and feel beautiful even if they don’t have the money for in-salon color or frequent touch-ups. This specially formulated demi-permanent color has richer pigments for vibrant color. The formula is gentle like a semi-permanent but long lasting like a permanent color and because of the Equalizer it covers gray. It is conveniently packaged in a mess-free Sachet Packet System designed to apply directly to the hair. Just snip, squeeze and smoosh!

I love this product because it actually feels and looks like you spent salon $$ on it. It’s so easy to use, and the finished product looks beautiful! I am so excited to find this product, actually, because I can’t afford to dye my hair in the salon anymore. To know that I can do it myself – and easily – for only $12?? Yes please! U-Color comes in 24 colors, and you can find them at Ulta – and online!

Umberto stood by his philosophy: “Hair is magical. You can do more with hair than an artist can do with a paint brush.” In creating this line, Umberto gives women everywhere the simple tools they need to create any look they want.

No Measuring, No Mixing, No Mess!
Salon color has never been easier! U COLOR’s one-step Sachet Packet System of Color, Developer and Equalizer comes ready-to-use making the system fool proof for even the least savvy. The magic Equalizer is the key to achieving results that no other at home product can duplicate.

Even Color from Roots to Ends.
The Equalizer is the magic ingredient that works together with the color and developer during the chemical process to balance color absorption. Because of the Equalizer, you’ll get full gray coverage and there’s no need to worry about a line of demarcation, or ends that ‘grab’ color and get too dark.

Lasting Color, Conditioning and Shine.
The Equalizer also contains an added Clear Gloss and Conditioner. Rather than use a pre- or post-conditioning treatment that only coats the hair, U COLOR opens the hair shaft during processing allowing the Equalizer to penetrate the hair, locking in lasting color, conditioning and shine all in one easy step, avoiding another chemical process and time consuming step.

Kit includes:
• 2 Sachet Packets (6 Fl. Oz. total) including Color, Developer and Equalizer that comes ready to use
• Mini Detail Brush
• Latex Gloves
• Illustrated Instructions

Instructions:
Simply fold the sachet packet and snip, squeeze and smoosh! The one-step Sachet Packet System contains everything you need: Color, Developer and Equalizer in a no or low ammonia, pleasantly scented, gel formula. Distribute color evenly through hair and let it process for 25 minutes. After the process is complete, rinse, shampoo and condition as usual!

U Color is available in 24 shades for a suggested retail price of $12.00 at leading beauty supply outlets and www.ulta.com and www.umbertobh.com.

Scarlett Johansson debuts a new bob!

Scarlett Johansson is no stranger to hair change-ups, having gone from blonde to brunette and back again, but now the actress has hit the chopping block! The Mango model and face of Dolce & Gabbana The Makeup headed to the Comic-Con convention in San Diego on Saturday with a new golden bob. Always one to turn up the glamour factor, Scarlett gave the new do a little rock ‘n’ roll attitude with some rough tousling. And while we have to admit that we’ve been loving the long, screen-siren waves that Scarlett has made her own over the past several months, we like seeing her switch up her style.

I think it could look really cute, I’m just not a fan of how it’s styled. What do you think?

Introducing Infiniti by Conair You Curl!

I was sooooooooo excited to try out this new product by Conair. I have thick, stubborn hair, and I have always had a really hard time achieving the perfect curl. When I tried this curling rod, at first it was a bit tricky to get used to, not gonna lie. But after I got the hang of it, I absolutely loved it! It’s gives you that amazing curl that most of the celebrities like. It’s a big, soft, natural looking curl. I think you’ll love it!

Soft, sexy curls are now easy to create with the new Infiniti by Conair You Curl. The You Curl has a unique, clamp-free design and a cone-shaped barrel that creates a softer, less structured curl.  Simply wrap hair around the barrel, hold for a few seconds and then release.  The conical design allows the curls to start closer to the root, allowing more volume through the middle (large portion of the barrel) and the bottom will have a tighter curl (small section of the barrel).  The effect is trendy, free-flowing spirals with no “clamp kinks.”

The powerful ceramic heater features Tourmaline Ceramic™ technology which provides more protection, reduces frizz, helps eliminate static and does not have damaging hot spots. The ultra-high heat levels are instantly restored during use, and the 5 LED settings provide the ideal temperatures for all hair types. The stay-cool safety tip protects fingers during use.

The Infiniti by Conair You Curl is available nationwide at mass market and drug store retailers, as well as at www.conairyoucurl.com, for an average retail price of $49.99.

Miley Cyrus drops $24,000 on new hair!!

She’s only 17, but when it comes to her hair, Miley Cyrus is a first-class diva. According to an insider, Miley spent more than $24,000 on her recent extensions, importing the hair from Italy and flying out her New York stylist, Kristina Barricelli from Gemini 14 salon, to LA to do the ’do.’ “Miley bought the best hair possible, and then had it dyed to match hers exactly,” says the insider. “Her hair is an investment.”

Well, $24,000 – that’s reasonable, right? Jeez! Even if I had it – I can’t imagine spending that much on hair!
