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.

WHAT IT COSTS: Volume Refresher Clutch, $295; Flyaway Tamer Clutch, $275
