Congrats to our winner #13 Sahara! Please watch your email inbox.

TWO LEADING NAMES IN STYLE UNITE:
JOHN FRIEDA® HAIR CARE AND LAUREN MERKIN

THINK: Style to go.

WHAT IT IS: A fashion-forward partnership between hair care authority John Frieda® and design maven Lauren Merkin. Her name is synonymous with the clutch, so it was only fitting that John Frieda® hair care came to Lauren Merkin to design the perfect bags to house two of the latest style breakthroughs from the John Frieda® brand: Luxurious Volume Anytime Volume Refresher and Full Repair™ Touch-up Flyaway Tamer. Both trendsetters in the style universe, John Frieda® hair care and Lauren Merkin are joining forces to create the ultimate style accessories: exclusive Lauren Merkin clutches with must-have John Frieda® stylers inside. Whether you want to pump up the volume or smooth down flyaways on the go, now the chic style solution is at your fingertips—and in a covetable clutch.

To house Luxurious Volume Anytime Volume Refresher, John Frieda® hair care’s instant oomph infusion to revive style that falls flat, Lauren Merkin created a soft pouch clutch in gold snakeskin-embossed leather to match high-volume hair. Ideal for fine hair prone to flatness, Luxurious Volume Anytime Volume Refresher recreates volume at the roots by absorbing oils, instantly taking weight out of hair to give it lift. The translucent formula blends effortlessly to refresh hair and revive volume without a hint of residue. The result? Fresh, full, high-volume hair, any time.

For a sleek way to stash Full Repair™ Touch-up Flyaway Tamer, Lauren Merkin designed a slim, rectangular taupe color patent leather clutch with red suede lining to complement glossy, smooth hair. Touch-up Flyaway Tamer polishes broken strands, smoothing flyaways and frayed ends with Inca Inchi oil, an omega 3-packed oil that weightlessly restores dry, damaged hair. Just brush the wand over dry, styled hair for on-the-go touch-ups and an instant boost of shine.

Each of these must-have clutches includes the corresponding John Frieda® hair care product when purchased online at laurenmerkin.com. Available beginning November 2011, the clutches are the perfect way to stay chic at the season’s parties.

Michelle Trachtenberg’s New Dark ‘Do is Courtesy of an At-Home Colour!‏

As seen in this week’s US Weekly, when actress Michelle Trachtenberg decided to take her hair color darker this fall, she didn’t head to the salon… she turned to John Frieda® Precision Foam Colour, taking her naturally medium brown hair to a rich, deep brunette shade.

“I love my colorist, but between traveling and shooting I don’t always have time to make it to the salon,” explains Trachtenberg. “I trust John Frieda® Precision Foam Colour to deliver color as even and shiny as salon color, and I can find my favorite shade anywhere my work takes me. Plus it’s so simple—the foam is so thick, you can feel it covering every strand giving even coverage from root to tip. To get my current color, I used Precision Foam Colour 3N, Brilliant Brunette® Deep Brown-Black—it’s the perfect deep, rich shade for me this season.”

With an array of high-shine, vibrant options for blondes, brunettes and redheads, John Frieda® Precision Foam Colour brings a salon shade spectrum home. An innovation seven years in the making, the breakthrough at-home colour employs proprietary foam technology to provide even coverage—the kind of flawless colour previously only available at the salon.

With its stylist-selected shades and patent-pending foam technology, the unprecedented hair colour ensures effortless application and complete 100% grey coverage for natural-looking, salon-quality results. No mess, no drips, no stains—just gorgeous hair from every angle.

They make hairbrushes?

 
When you hear the name John Frieda you might just think of his popular Frizz- Ease or Brilliant Blonde collections, but did you know they make hairbrushes as well? When I opened the package I thought “oh a hairbrush” little did I know I would come to adore this unassuming brush.

With long, fine, and thick curly hair brushing is always a chore. The brushes that are gentle enough don’t comb all the way through and the brushes that can handle my mane tend to pull to hard and break my hair. The John Frieda cushion brush does an exceptional job on wet hair the cushion helps you comb out your hair completely without pain or breakage. It seems to just slide through my hair making brushing it so easy. Simply put this a a great hairbrush and at $12.99 it won’t break the budget.

John Frieda Cushion Brush

The John Frieda Sleek Finish Cushion Brush has deep- shine silicone bristles to create shine, smooth flyaways and helps reduce frizz.  There also IONS in the brush help to flatten the hair’s cuticle layers.

The brush is safe for wet or dry hair.

$12

Winner announced! John Frieda Full Repair Collection

 

Congrats to our winner Robalina, please watch your email inbox!

 

 

 

As we slowly transition into fall, it’s time to think about repairing the damage our hair has endured during the past few months. Not only do we put it through the ringer when styling on a daily basis, but the summer sun and elements have also been reaking havoc on our stands!

John Frieda’s Full Repair Collection is all about reversing what’s been done and protecting your hair from further damage. “So many women who come into the salon have absolutely destroyed their hair by over-styling, over-coloring, and generally overdoing it,” explains Harry Josh, John Frieda® International Creative Consultant. “They traumatize their hair trying to get a certain look, but then they can’t maximize it because their hair is so fried. Full Repair™ offers them damage control that won’t weigh their hair down, letting them style to the limit while actually reversing the damage they’ve done to date.”

The Full Repair collection includes:
Full Body Shampoo ($6.99): Formulated with Inca Inchi oil, this bodifying shampoo repairs the look and feel of overworked hair as it weightlessly restores bounce for full, flowing styles.
Full Body Conditioner ($6.99): Omega-rich Inca Inchi oil repairs hair as the formula smoothes and detangles, reducing the risk of breakage and snagging when combing or brushing.
Protecting Root Lift Foam ($6.99): This lightweight foam protects hair from heat damage with Inca Inchi oil while creating instant body. Work into wet or towel dried hair at the roots for weightless lift and high-volume hair when styled.
Perfect Ends Deep Infusion ($9.99): This breakthrough product for Medium-Textured Hair instantly absorbs into damaged strands instead of coating the surface, penetrating hair with Inca Inchi oil to weightlessly reverse the look and feel of damage while protecting hair from heat.
Perfect Ends Sheer Mist ($9.99): This softening mist for Fine-Textured Hair protects heat-damaged hair with omega-rich Inca Inchi oil. Spray evenly through clean, wet hair, concentrating on ends and damaged areas to weightlessly repair and promote smooth, healthy strands.
Touch-up Flyaway Tamer ($9.99): This portable wand polishes broken strands, smoothing flyaways and frayed ends with Inca Inchi oil to keep hair sleek and smooth. Brush the wand over dry, styled hair for on-the-go touch-ups and a boost of shine.
