Clairol moves into new color category with Color Crave Hair Makeup
NEW YORK — Coty’s Clairol Brand is entering a new color category with the launch of its Color Crave Hair Makeup. The washable hair makeup is designed with 3-D crystals that allow users of all hair colors and textures to play with metallic color looks.
The product can be used to add a highlight to a shopper’s hair, create an ombre effect or show off a variety of color. Users apply it with a swipe of the sponge applicator and set it with a blow dryer. This step removes the water as the heat traps the metallic crystals and bonds them to the hair surface, according to the company.
Color Crave Hair Makeup is free of ammonia, peroxide and parabens, and is available in six shades — amethyst, ruby, platinum, rose gold, copper and bronze. The product has a suggested retail price of $10.99.

“With so much on the line, the most important thing a brand can be armed with when meeting with buyers is data that illustrates why the product belongs on the shelf,” HRG marketing director Cari Sass said. “In addition, the presentation needs to be memorable because it’s one of many the buyer sees. If it’s built on fact and is also dynamic and engaging, it will have a good chance of leaving a lasting impression.”
The free e-book is available on HRG’s website, and the company has created the infographic below to accompany the launch.
