At Color Wow, we focus on one thing and one thing only: solving your toughest hair problems and delivering the WOW factor. Whether it’s color protection, frizz control, or thicker, fuller hair that you’re after, our first-of-a-kind formulas have forever changed the hair game and have been honored with over 90 major beauty awards.
At Color Wow, we’re not just passionate about hair care products, we’re hair-obsessed. That's why we’re committed to using the highest quality science-backed ingredients. We're always pushing the boundaries of hair care innovation, exploring new ingredients and technologies to improve our products and provide you with the best possible results.
Today's clean beauty standards have restricted 30 ingredients in the United States and 1,400 in the European Union from being used in personal care products. We've banned them all, PLUS we've identified an additional 70 ingredients commonly found in other hair care formulas that can dull, darken and distort your color.
But it's not just about the ingredients we've eliminated, it's also about the ones we've added. Our Color Wow Lab has formulated all of our leave-in treatments and styling products to include at least two kinds of heat protection for safer styling and healthier-looking results.
Our commitment to quality, safety, and effectiveness sets us apart and makes us the trusted choice for hair care enthusiasts who want hair care without compromise.
OUR PROBLEM SOLVER-IN-CHIEF
To know Gail Federici, our Founder, is to know that, if she has the will, she will most certainly find the way. If there is a problem she won’t stop until she solves it. Step into her office and you’ll find Navy Seal quotes about “Never giving up” and Winston Churchill images to inspire her resolve.
With more than 40 years in hair care and countless beauty industry awards, she has consistently produced the industry’s most innovative products, from the first anti-frizz product, Frizz Ease, when she was at the helm of John Frieda Hair Care, to our breakthrough anti-humidity product Dream Coat Supernatural Spray. Her innovations have literally changed the game.
OUR TEAM OF LEGENDARY PROBLEM-SOLVERS CREATE FIRST-OF-KIND PRODUCTS
COLOR WOW’S IN-HOUSE LAB While most hair care companies farm out product development, Color Wow keeps product formulation in the building under the watchful eye of renowned biochemist, Dr. Joseph Cincotta, and the rigorous approval process of Gail Federici. It can take many years and endless trials to bring a new product to market. The key criteria: it must solve a problem that’s never been addressed or, it must outperform all other products.When Gail and Dr. Joe get together to start formulating, they don’t stop until they get it right!

All of Gail’s three siblings (as well as some of their spouses and kids!) have also played pivotal roles, from the legacy of John Frieda to Color Wow’s success, leading the way in PR, operations, legal and beyond!

That's why we are committed to supporting initiatives that provide education, healthcare and support to women and children around the world.
We know that when women and girls are given the opportunity to succeed, they not only improve their own lives, but they also help to build stronger communities and economies.

Hairraising: HAIRraising is a one-day cut-a-thon fundraising event started by our founder, Gail Federici, to support Boston Children’s Heart Center, the nation’s #1 pediatric hospital. This hospital has a profound significance for Gail, as one of her twin daughters underwent multiple heart surgeries there.
