NEW YORK, April 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- dpHUE, the ground-breaking and prestige at-home hair color and care line, is launching in 850+ Ulta Beauty brick and mortar stores and on Ulta.com on May 8, 2016.
dpHUE was founded in 2011 by Donna Pohlad on the premise that current options for at-home hair color were not meeting the needs of today's busy consumer. After seeing a void in the market, Pohlad was determined to develop a solution for at-home hair color and care products without compromising salon quality. She partnered with top experts in the industry to formulate a new concept to achieving custom, prestige hair color and care. dpHUE's permanent at-home hair color and care products are revolutionizing the concept of personalization by delivering solutions that enable customers to achieve the high-quality results at their convenience.
"Life is crazy busy and it's frustrating having to take so much time every few weeks to color my hair. I was in need of color that was convenient and up to the standards of color I could only get in a top salon. I knew there were countless women out there sharing my frustration and needed another option – one that would bridge the gap between salon quality products and those available in the mass market," says Donna Pohlad, CEO and Founder of dpHUE.
Shortly after the collection was established, celebrity hair colorist Justin Anderson was introduced to Pohlad and he immediately saw the quality and potential and became immersed in the brand. He now lends his expertise in helping to further develop the collection of products and training.
"My clients who frequently travel were always asking me for color they could take on the road for touch-ups in between seeing me. I found myself shipping color to clients around the world. Once I was introduced to Donna and dpHUE, I saw this brand was like no other and solved the problem I was continuously having – not being able to touch up your hair color between visits," says Justin Anderson, Creative Director of dpHUE and Celebrity Hair Colorist.
dpHUE opened the first colorBAR in Minneapolis, MN in 2011, and a second location followed in 2014 in Studio City, LA. In the colorBAR's, clients are treated to complimentary consultations and can choose to have their hair color applied in-store by a professional colorist or guided in-store on how to apply the color at-home.
"At Ulta Beauty we take great pride in offering the best collection of salon quality haircare products available," said Julie Tomasi, Ulta Beauty senior vice president of merchandising. "The launch of dpHUE at Ulta Beauty is a continuation of our commitment to offer our guests the type of product innovation they want. dpHUE's collection of salon quality haircare products is a welcomed addition and offers solutions to deliver high-performance results."
