8 Product Discoveries at America’s Beauty Show 2017
One of the best parts about America’s Beauty Show, besides the education of course, has to be all the new products that make their debut! We’ve compiled eight of our favorites (plus eight more of our faves!) in one place for you to check out. Can’t get enough ABS 2017? Check out the color, cut and style tips we gathered from this weekend, too!
1. Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer
With Dyson’s Supersonic Hairdryer, arm day doesn’t have to be every day anymore. This lightweight blow dryer features a concentrator developed with the help of professional stylists, so it gives powerful, precise airflow that spans the length of your brush. Now you can style larger sections of hair more efficiently. Watch the video below to see the Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer transform coarse, curly hair into smooth, straight strands.
2. Flat-Tip Bead from Babe Hair Extensions
A hybrid of the tape-in and bead methods, Babe Hair Extensions’ new Flat-Tip Bead extension is the best of both worlds. The extensions are applied like a bead—with no adhesive and no heat—but lay flat and even like a tape-in extension. Watch how they work below.
3. Keracolor Color + Clenditioner™
A color-depositing cleanser that won’t dry out her strands? Yes, please! Keracolor Color + Clenditioner™ is a non-lather conditioning cleanser designed to gently cleanse and condition the hair while depositing color pigments. Now she can make that bold fashion color last longer while keeping her hair healthy.
4. Sam Villa Artist Series
Released at this year’s Redken Symposium, Sam Villa’s Artist Series includes a Finishing Brush, a Polishing Paddle Brush and a Comb Set. The Polishing Paddle Brush combines the speed of a paddle brush with the highly polished finish of a natural boar bristle brush. The boar bristles provide increased tension resulting in smooth polished finishes, while the wide paddle penetrates long and thick hair of all textures. Tourmaline-infused nylon fibers create negative ions to penetrate and condition the hair when heat and tension are applied. The finishing brush can be used to create flawless ponytails and for sculpting and polishing. Use the Artist Series Handle Comb for precision shear-over-comb work and the Artist Series Detail Comb for a close tapered effect.
5. Barber Strong Barber Vest and Polo
We were all about the new Barber Vest and Barber Polo from Barber Strong. The sleeveless vest features moisture-wicking, lightweight material, vented side panels and a two-way zipper for max comfort. It also offers increased airflow where you need it the most, and zippers located at the bottom of each pocket allow for easy cleaning. The Barber Polo also features moisture-wicking material, mesh side panels to help keep you cool and dry in the shop, plus a coating that repels hair. Its comfort fit allows for natural range of motion.
6. Donna Bella Color Takeover
Donna Bella Hair Extensions recently partnered with Joico and Framar to create Color Takeover. “Most hair extension companies tell users not to color extensions,” says Donna Bella. “We tell stylists you should color if you want to, and we’ll teach you how to do it.” With the brand’s new Color Takeover Portal, stylists and clients can read up on all the hair extension coloring info they need to create and maintain beautifully vibrant hair. The educational outreach program includes tutorial videos, articles, a downloadable guide, and more.
