New Flag, the beauty company that launched invisibobble, introduces a personalized hair care line called Urban Alchemy. The brand just launched its hero collection, Prescription Care, a customizable hair care line consisting of three bases, seven different alchemies, and a lineup of products including Prescription Blonde Toning Drops, Salt Scrub Cleansing Shampoo and Conditioner, and Signature Cleanse Detox Products.
"New Flag is proud to pioneer a line of highly innovative and customizable products that will disrupt the hair care industry," said Anthony Melzi, CEO, North America. "We know that everyone has different hair needs and we have worked hard to create a product that can provide a customizable approach for all. We're thrilled to launch our hero collection, and are continuing to grow our offerings with new innovations coming soon."
"Consumers are craving personalization, especially when it comes to hair care, added Maryann Herskowitz, group vice president of merchandising, Sally Beauty. "With the full line of Urban Alchemy available exclusively at Sally Beauty, we're further expanding our breadth of professional quality products so consumers can craft a solution tailored to their specific needs and achieve their hair goals, no matter the hair type."
HOW THE URBAN ALCHEMY MAGIC WORKS
Each alchemy can be added to any of the three bases to create a custom formula, whether consumers are looking for added shine, hair growth, repair, volume, moisture, scalp care, or color lock. Stylists choose from the three bases: shampoo, conditioner, or mask, and then mix with their choice of two to three alchemies. Urban Alchemy's customization enables alchemists to create their client's personal formula in the salon that best suits each client's needs. From there, clients can purchase their customized hair care mixture to achieve salon-tailored hair care at home.
Matt McAdam, group vice president of merchandising, Beauty Systems Group welcomes the new offering, which will be distributed to professionals through Cosmo Prof. "Our goal is to be an ally to stylists by providing them with innovative products that meet the unique needs of their diverse customer base," said McAdam. "By offering Urban Alchemy at Cosmo Prof, we can provide a customizable solution that starts with stylists behind the chair and continues with customer use at home."
"JCPenney Salon and The Salon by InStyle inside JCPenney stylists know that every client has a perfect color, cut or style that's personalized for them," said Rachel Jud, vice president of Salon, JCPenney. "But they also know hair care and maintenance should be just right, too. Urban Alchemy products give our stylists the freedom to create treatments specifically for each client as they achieve the perfect look. We're excited to introduce Urban Alchemy in our JCPenney Salons as well as The Salon by InStyle inside JCPenney and show the benefits of personalized hair care in the salon or at home."
