Beauty Byte: Salon Selectives Just Stepped Out of the Salon

Wasn't it just a few months ago that we were talking about Salon Selectives trying to return earlier this year? Well, don't call it a comeback — the resuscitated brand is being discontinued yet again. In the suffering economy, the brand's new corporate owners, Selective Beauty Brands, didn't get proper funding for advertising and distribution of the pink-bottled hair care line.

That's too bad, because I liked a few items in the latest iteration of the brand. Stock up while you can, and to check out a vintage SS ad for old time's sake,

I used to love the bottles because they had the different colors on them for the different formulas.

Now I shall have the "Salon Se-LEC-tives!" jingle in my head for weeks.

I know this is going to "date" me but I remember the infamous Salon Selectives commercial from around 1998-1999 with Freddie (Boom Boom) Washington (Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs) from Welcome Back Kotter singing "Who's that lady-beautiful lady!" My son was 2 at the time and would crack up laughing every time the commercial came on!

that kind of sucks for the brand - it was very iconic back when i was growing up and you knew that you were getting a GREAT product but i guess with the crowded market place and the hope to break through the clutter, i can understand why it's not necessarily making the revenue that big corporations feel are necessary.

This was like the trendiest shampoo and hairspray at my middle school. Everyone loved the smell. After a while, it was kind of nauseating. But I still remember the song: "Salon selectives! Salon glooowwwww."

I didn't see it anywhere and I'm not sure if I'd buy it anyway. It did smell good but then again I was 7 so what did I know?

I remember using this brand back in the smelled like apples. I have to say, I'm not surprised that its resurgence didn't last long...
