British celebrity hair stylist Lee Stafford brings hair care collection to U.S.
NEW YORK — British celebrity hair stylist Lee Stafford has brought his line of hair care products to the United States. The collection, which is housed in signature bright pink packaging, now is available at Duane Reade locations throughout New York City and at Ulta locations nationwide.
From shampoos and styling products to hair growth treatments, Stafford and developers have spent years crafting the line referred to as The Pink Range. With names such as Messed Up and Ruff As You Like It, each product is an example of Stafford’s signature edgy style. Driven by innovation, Stafford’s products, including their newly launched argan oil products and the Hair Growth range, are at the front line of development.
Stafford originally developed The Pink Range to satisfy his need for a cohesive line that could produce desired results on his own clients. He uses each of the products in his own salon as his stamp of approval, and strives to bring his specialty salon care into women’s at-home routine.
The National Hairdressers Federation named Stafford as the U.K.’s Most Influential Hairdresser of 2010. With a roster of numerous celebrities including The Rolling Stones, Avril Lavigne, Dido and many more, Stafford is well known across the U.K. as a stylist, product creator, editorial spokesperson and hair care educator.
Priced from $7.99 to $14.99, the line offers something for every hair type, from bleach blonde to dark, beachy waves to poker straight hair. Launched in 2001, the hair care collection is available in 28 countries across the globe.

Coty introduces new Nautica Aqua Rush for him
NEW YORK — Coty has announced the May launch of its new Nautica Aqua Rush fragrance for men.
“Nautica Aqua Rush evokes the energy of an adventurous lifestyle,” said Steve Mormoris, SVP of Coty Beauty global marketing. “This exhilarating new Nautica fragrance celebrates the strength and masculinity of the active man and, ultimately, the epic power of the ocean.”

Nautica Aqua Rush is housed in a bottle that echoes the curve of a swiftly moving sailboat or cresting wave.
The fragrance is priced at $49 (50 ml) and $65 (100 ml). The all-over body spray is priced at $10 (4 oz.).
The new Aqua Rush is available at Macy’s department stores and other retailers nationwide.
