BY Antoinette Alexander

CHICAGO Beautology Brands Co., a hair care marketer and distributor of the Charles Worthington London, Chemistry Salon Labs and Daisy Fuentes Style Pro brand, has added the Salon Selectives hair care brand to its portfolio.

“This is a very exciting time as we now have the incredible opportunity to effectively re-commercialize one of the most well known brands in the history of hair care,” stated Stuart Straus, president and CEO of Beautology Brands. “Our research shows that Salon Selectives still has over 80% awareness among consumers.”

Popularized in the 1980s and 1990s by Helene Curtis Industries, Salon Selectives featured pink packaging and a much-loved green apple fragrance.

It was the fist salon-inspired and salon quality brand sold in the mass market. At its peak, the brand had a 6.5% market share and annual sales of $275 million.

According to Straus, the company will reintroduce the brand in the salon value segment of food, drug and mass. It will leverage the Salon Selectives’ brand equities of salon heritage, customized care, mix and match badge system, packaging color palette and fragrance. It will also revisit the brand’s “Just stepped out of the salon” jingle.
