Hair, Hair: ShopNBC Brings In Peter Coppola

March 21, 2011

QVC has Chaz Dean. HSN has Oprah Winfrey’s hairdo guru Andre Walker and Sally Hershberger.

Now ShopNBC has hair stylist Peter Coppola, who is bringing a line of salon styling products to the No. 3 home shopping network. He debuts this Friday at 11 a.m.

Here’s the supposed twist with Coppola’s products: They feature the patented technology of CopaGen Complex TM. Formulated with keratin proteins found naturally in hair, CopaGen Complex TM allows the product to bond to hair instantly and effectively, or so ShopNBC tells us.

Here’s what it will supposedly do for you:

“Eliminates unmanageable frizz, curls and waves instantly!”

We could use that today.

“Gives you smooth hair while locking in volume, shine, and length for silky, full hair”

Yeah…

“Restore and renew hair strength, condition, color”

His products include: 4-piece CopaGen Smoothing System (C53300); Mudd Texture Balm (C53301); and the Myst Hairspray Duo (C53303).

Oprah Winfrey’s OWN Network Gives Her Hair Stylist, HSN Vendor Andre Walker, A Platform

January 2, 2011

We just saw HSN vendor Andre Walker doing Oprah Winfrey’s hair, putting rollers in it, on a show on her just-launched channel: OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.

We’ve been peeking at the network throughout the day, and we are impressed. Its tone was inspirational, reflecting Winfrey’s belief that human nature is basically good.

The program on now is a fly-on-the-wall chronicle about Winfrey’s popular daytime talk show, “Season 25: Oprah Behind the Scenes.” One of the interesting moments was hearing one of Winfrey’s gay producers complain about doing a show in West Virginia that focuses on people who are as anti-gay today as they were in 1987.

During the day, after the noon launch, we enjoyed a profile of rap impresario, and Beyonce husband, Jay-Z, that was part of “Oprah Presents Master Class.” He came across as a smart, thoughtful, sensitive guy.

One show about adopted people on the hunt for their real parents was very derivative: Cable network have done this before.

Walker, by the way, is selling hair care products on HSN.

Oprah’s Hairstylist To Launch Hair Care Line, Which Is On The Big ‘O’s Favorite List, On HSN

December 14, 2010

Andre Walker, seven-time Emmy winner and hair stylist to Oprah Winfrey for the last 25 years, will launch a hair care collection on HSN Dec. 16 and 17, the home shopping network said Tuesday.

The collection, which was recently added to Oprah’s annual “My Favorite Things” list, is four products formulated for all hair types, including Caucasian, Latin, African-American, bleached, color-treated, fine, coarse, smooth, straight and curly. Walker will join HSN this week fresh off the farewell season ‘Oprah Winfrey Show’ tapings in Australia.

Walker’s products were originally modeled after his very own custom formulas, which he has used for years on various clients, including Winfrey. Walker’s formulas include whole leaf aloe vera, virgin Moroccan argan oil, green tea leaf extracts, protein building keratin and other fine natural ingredients that promote overall health, manageability and radiant shine.

“It is very important to me to deliver the results promised by my products, and I consistently see the transformation of my clients’ hair with these unique ingredients,” Walker, who is launching a gift set on HSN just in time for the holidays, said in a canned statement. “HSN customers are savvy, very knowledgeable about beauty and hair care — and they recognize the value HSN will bring to them. It was the perfect fit.”

Andre’s Ultimate Gift Set includes the following beauty products packaged in a perfect ready-to-go bundle. The gift is $65.

It includes:

Keratin Shampoo, a gel that produces very little lather but leaves the hair ultra clean in preparation for the conditioning step

Keratin Conditioner, a formula that deeply strengthens, hydrates and promotes incredible softness and shine

“Q” Oil — a weightless serum that smoothes, adds brilliant shine, nourishes and hydrates every hair type.

Hair Make-Up — available in five shades, a duo applicator wand that dries in seconds leaving a natural looking shine and color that compliments and enhances your current shade

Walker will debut on HSN Thursday next week at 8 p.m. with additional shows next Friday at 6 a.m. and 11 a.m.
