Designer collaborations seem to thrill us more than department store sale racks and beach vacations. Missoni for Target anyone? But this holiday season, unwrap your two favorite gifts, hair care and accessories with the Lauren Merkin and John Frieda collaboration.
While we can't believe this hasn't been done sooner, the expert hair guru John Frieda's partnership with the bag-designer-to the stars leaves us fashionably breathless as we try to find the perfect accessory that combines beauty and fashion. (Not to mention an absolutely perfect holiday gift for any glamour girl on your list this season.)
Whether you're looking for something to add volume to your locks to match your luxe handbag or trying to tame your hair to fit in with a subtle, but statement-making clutch, you'll be holiday-ready with this new duo.
Your hair won't fall flat with the John Frieda Luxurious Volume Anytime Volume Refresher. If you're in dire need of really pumping up the locks for a job interview or first date (and especially if you're running late), this dry spray shampoo makes it easy to renovate your look in just seconds — primarily if you have fine, thin hair. Plus, your luscious hair will actually last because the stylist-favorite product lifts hair right at the roots. Doesn't get better than that, right?
After you create your new, full mane, take that accompanying Lauren Merkin gold snakeskin-embossed leather clutch to any holiday party to impress your co-workers, boss or even that secret crush. You'll be sure to snag a mistletoe partner with the new 'do.
If the last thing you want to do is make your hair bigger, John Frieda's Full Repair Touch-up Flyaway Tamer instantly smoothes hair and gets rid of any loose strands from damaged hair to create that perfect, timeless look. Then grab the sleek and timeless clutch to match your tamed and pristine hair. Think Audrey Hepburn for this one.
The Volume Refresher Clutch, $295, and the Flyaway Tamer Clutch, $275, are both available at laurenmerkin.com through December.
Hurry and order both as a gift for yourself and any other gal on your list.
