Invites Women to Join the Conversation Led by Team of Four Style-savvy Ambassadors
MADISON, Wis., Aug. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- When it comes to style, Remington is ahead of the curve. Today the personal care company announces the launch of an online community dedicated to all things beauty and fashion. Bringing their commitment to style and innovation directly to their consumers online, Remington Red Chair Ready empowers women with how-to tips, tricks and tools to get ready for a first date, a board meeting or a girls night out. From professional hairstylists to at-home beauty buffs, women of all types are encouraged to join the 24/7 conversation and connect with fellow stylistas to share their knowledge and learn about the latest trends from hot summer highlights to Herve Leger.
After conducting a national search for style leaders, Remington hand-picked four brand Ambassadors to lead the community conversation. The women were selected based on their unique points of view, beauty knowledge and inspirational ideas. In addition to tips and tricks, each of the brand Ambassadors share beauty secrets, style trends and lifestyle advice on the Red Chair Facebook and Twitter (@RemRedChair) accounts. The Ambassadors also contribute weekly to the Red Chair Style Spin blog and represent the Red Chair community at events from coast to coast. The group kicked off the program with an A-list initiation weekend in Los Angeles, California that included a spa day and makeovers with celebrity stylist Richard Marin. In June, the women headed to New York City to meet top beauty editors at a Remington product launch event in The Big Apple.
Meet the gurus:
Megan Brundridge, Online Marketing Specialist says, "The Remington Red Chair Ready community was created to be a haven where style-conscious women can go to interact with one another. We're so thrilled to have these four amazing women leading the charge – they provide the perfect mix of perspectives and have proven to be an incredible resource for style tips."
