Hairstylist Mark Hill, who is one of the defining influences on British hairstyling with a constant presence in the media, has brought the Mark Hill Salon Professional line across the pond.

The range of 17 hair care and styling products have debuted at Walgreen's nationwide, and will roll out to Duane Reade stores later this month. All of the products in the collection are priced under $12.

The vibrant packaging features bold splashes of hot pink, silver, red blue and/or yellow, on black or white bottles and tubes - names that demand attention. "Only Takes a Minute! 60 Second Detox Treatment" is shown.

The line first launched in the UK in 2004, exclusively with Boots health and beauty retail stores. It is also available in the U.S. at drugstore.com, and US.Boots.com.

"I've spent more than 15 years creating a range of hair care products that are of such high quality that they are used every day in my salon. To bring an effective, yet affordable range to the U.S. is absolutely a dream come true," said Mark Hill.

Gordon Farquhar, managing director, Boots Retail USA, commented, "Mark has a very successful business in the UK putting his passion and expertise into every detail, and we look forward to building his brand in the U.S."

Alliance Boots had formed a strategic partnership with Walgreens last summer to create the first global pharmacy-led, health and wellbeing enterprise, so we can expect more launches like this in the future.

"As part of our vision to be the first choice for health and daily living, our beauty team is committed to offering customers exciting products to help them achieve the latest trends and styles," said Shannon Curtin, Walgreens divisional vice president and general merchandise manager of Beauty and Personal Care.
