Donna Bella Milan Announces Sale of Popular Hair Extensions Line

Wednesday, January 16th, 2008

Park City, UT (Donna Bella Hair) January 15, 2008 – Hair Extension boutique Donna Bella Milan has announced the limited availability of the Kera and I-Link Grade B 100% human hair extension line at prices far below market value.

In response to the dramatically reduced price, Donna Bella Milan President Derrick Porter noted, “We’ve set the low price point as a special offering for new stylists or those new to hair extensions that just want to give it a try without spending a lot of money on hair. We don’t feel that there’s a deal anywhere like it on the net.”

Both the Kera and I-Link Grade B 100% human hair sell regularly for $20.00 per pack. Porter confirmed that the sale price, effective while supplies last, is just $8.95 / pack.
As with all Donna Bella products, each pack contains hair made from 100% human remy hair. Each pack includes 10 strands per pack with each strand weighing a little over .50 grams per strand.

On the specific uses for this style, Porter said. “We have brought Kera and I-Link hair extensions in for stylists to use on clients with thin hair as well as for stylists who don’t want to have to purchase 25 – 50 strands per pack, which is typically the average, as this dramatically increases the overall price.” This sale is on while hair extension supplies last.

This sale of hair extensions will be available starting January 15, 2008 from Donna Bella’s online store at or direct through their call-center at 1-888-HAIR-KIT.

L’Oreal Snaps Up Columbia Beauty Supply

Monday, January 7th, 2008

L’Oreal USA has made another grab at acquiring salon distributors, the third in the last year. The beauty company released a press release today. Here’s a bit:

L’Oréal USA, a subsidiary of L’Oréal U.S.A., announced today the acquisition of Columbia Beauty Supply, one of the professional salon industry’s most well-respected distributors of salon products. Preceded by the acquisitions of Beauty Alliance, Inc., and Maly’s West in 2007, this transaction represents another step in the company’s strategy to take greater interest in the professional salon distribution process.

Columbia Beauty Supply, located in Charlotte, NC, is a family-owned business with 2007 sales of $60 million, and a network of sales representatives and professional-only stores. With more than 80 years experience in the salon industry, Columbia Beauty Supply has a rich heritage and longstanding relationships with salon professionals. It will be managed by Beauty Alliance, Inc., (BAI) which is headquartered in Clearwater, FL. Columbia Beauty Supply, which services the salon community throughout the Southeastern part of the US, is geographically compatible with BAI creating a strong synergy between the two companies.

According to L’Oreal Professional Products President David Craggs,

“This acquisition enables us to continue to leverage our strengths by getting closer to hairdressers and their consumers, ensuring our leadership position and future sustainability in this category. As with BAI and Maly’s West, this acquisition will enable us to further control diversion, while creating better services and efficiencies to the benefit of salons, our brands, and other non-L’Oréal brands and consumers of salon products.”
