by Bionic Beauty on 04.May.2010 · 120 comments

Breaking news, Bionic Beauties…
Led by celebrity hair stylist Harry Josh (who works with some of the biggest names in the industry: Sarah Jessica Parker, Gwyneth Paltrow, Gisele Bundchen, Amanda Seyfried), the John Frieda expert team will traveling across the USA for their “On Site” Hair Styling Tour.

When visitors (i.e. you) arrive on site, you’ll have the opportunity to make a 15-minute appointment on a first-come, first-served basis. You will then receive a styling lesson with a top John Frieda stylist, who will consult with you about specific hair issues and help educate you on how to address those concerns. Every attendee will walk away with a “hair prescription” from your stylist and will have the chance to purchase the recommended John Frieda formulas on-site at a kiosk. You’ll also get an exclusive discount to BCBG – there will be a mini boutique at each event, along with shopping kiosks so you can order the latest styles and indulge your fashionista-side.

If you can’t make the Style On Site Tour, you can get Harry Josh’s expert knowledge at home. Josh will be giving women virtual transformations via Skype video sessions, allowing women nationwide to log on and experience his expertise from home. Select Skype sessions will also be posted on the John Frieda site, giving women everywhere access to Josh’s step-by-step tutorials.

Here are the upcoming tour dates and cities:

my hair gets frizzy but i usually just put it in a pony tail to manage it.

2 Summer May 18, 2010 at 2:54 pm

My hair is extremely frizzy. I have to use my Chi everyday to fix the problem.

3 Jason May 18, 2010 at 2:57 pm

My hair problem is that I have been grey since High School so I am constantly coloring my hair to get rid of the grey. I have color damaged hair.


4 Kerry May 18, 2010 at 4:55 pm

I have curly hair that I straighten every day – frizz is my biggest enemy!

5 Mo May 18, 2010 at 5:08 pm

My hair gets wavy when it reaches a certain length. Since it’s always been really short (and pin straight) I’m struggling to figure out how to deal with it.
I treat with Philip B hair oil once or twice a month to help keep the damage from styling to a minimum.

6 Vickie Riddle May 18, 2010 at 6:27 pm

I work in a hospital, so I generally have to have my hair pulled back, and for the whisps and other loose strands I use Sheer Blonde Crystal Clear Shape & Shimmer Hairspray to keep in place.

7 Karen May 18, 2010 at 6:28 pm

My hair is dry, damaged & very frizzy. Also i have very fine hair.

8 Christine sarkauskas May 18, 2010 at 6:58 pm

My hair issue is that my hair gets dry and frizzes out! I manage to advoid this by using good products that help with frizz and keep my hair trim to advoid damage.

9 Esperanza May 18, 2010 at 8:26 pm

I have many issues with my hair. First of all my hair is thin, damaged, dry and it frizzes. I have no idea what products to use anymore because they don’t seem to be working. I would love to have a beautiful healthy hair. PLEASE HELP!!!

10 Tammy D. May 18, 2010 at 8:27 pm

frizz…that’s always been my issues. I’ve deal with it better these days with all the great products out there…I think the one that helps the most is hair wax! That stuff is a life saver!

11 amy d May 18, 2010 at 9:52 pm

My hair is dry, damaged.its hard to get it under control

12 Erica C. May 18, 2010 at 10:41 pm

Frizz and fly-aways are definitely my biggest problems. I have stick straight hair and the little hairs are always annoying! To try to battle the frizz now, I brush hairspray throughout my hair after blow drying. It helps a little but takes out volume at the same time. I’d love to try this set.

13 Kristi May 19, 2010 at 12:03 am

I am starting to grey sooner and it’s driving me nuts that I have to color my hair sooner. So, I agree with another poster…my problem is damage from coloring my hair alot and also my hair is thick and unruly so JF Smooth Start sounds exactly like what I need. All I am doing now is using a leave in conditioner and it’s not really helping. Thanks for the giveaway!

14 Constance L May 19, 2010 at 8:40 am

I have gray hairs always creeping in so I must color my hair all the time. My hair is now extremely dry and brittle.

My hair gets frizzy when it’s really humid – I manage it by pulling it up into a twist.

16 pat jasmin May 19, 2010 at 10:19 am

17 Nicole Greene May 19, 2010 at 10:26 am

My hair is dry and damaged. I only use John Frieda brand on my hair since it’s the only kind that actually helps it. When it’s a really bad hair day it goes up in a ponytail or bun 🙂

18 susan May 19, 2010 at 10:46 am

i straiten my curly hair, frizz is my enemy.

19 Angela Winesburg May 19, 2010 at 12:18 pm

It gets so frizzy in the summer, thanks for the chance!

20 Jennifer May 19, 2010 at 12:39 pm

My hair gets really frizzy especially with our humid weather. I am using the Frizz Ease Conditioner now and it seems to be working great.

21 susan smoaks May 19, 2010 at 1:22 pm

i really have frizz issues i deal with them by using good shampoo and conditioner and leave in products!

22 Susan Smith May 19, 2010 at 1:28 pm

I use a leave in conditioner to help with frizzes.

23 Melissa P May 19, 2010 at 2:13 pm

My hair is very frizzy. I never blowdry it and I never brush it once it is dry. If it needs to be tamed, I dampen it and finger comb it.

24 Anna May 19, 2010 at 2:28 pm

My hair always seems to be dry and is damaged from all the Hair color i have used through the years. And The perm i had in it has made it frizzy at times.
Thanks for the chance!

25 Breanne May 19, 2010 at 2:33 pm

My hair is naturally thick, frizzy, and has big weird waves. I use mousse when it’s wet, blow dry it, and straighten it in the back if it’s still got messed up sections.

26 Lisa May 19, 2010 at 3:07 pm

Fine frizzy hair all the time!!

27 Lisa G. May 19, 2010 at 4:27 pm

My main hair issue is fine, flat hair. I try to avoid bad hair days by using volumizing shampoo & conditioner and volumizing styling products.

28 Melissa B. May 19, 2010 at 4:59 pm

I use lots of mousse to tackle the frizzies.

29 Helen May 19, 2010 at 5:27 pm

My hair get frizzy. I use plenty of hairspray to get it under control.

30 kathy pease May 19, 2010 at 5:55 pm

31 Melanie May 19, 2010 at 6:17 pm

My hair is baby-fine, it’s also pretty long. My biggest issue is always having to brush or it gets tangled and unmanagable. I can’t go anywhere with out a brush.

32 Zara May 19, 2010 at 6:26 pm

My hair is damaged and frizzy from blow drying
so I could definitely benefit from this product!

33 Bridget Combs May 19, 2010 at 6:43 pm

My hair is thin, fine AND frizzy! I’ve found little help beyond going ot the hair dressers. Would love to try this.

34 Michelle H. May 19, 2010 at 7:41 pm

I use intensive hair conditioners around 3 times a week for shiny hair and I rinse my hair in cold water because this also makes it shiny.

35 peggy May 19, 2010 at 8:22 pm

my hair problem is dryness. I do a deep condtioner treatment each week to try to combat dryness.

36 Amanda S. May 19, 2010 at 8:40 pm

I have half frizzy (top) half straight (bottom) hair and the rainy northwest where I live doesn’t help! Maybe this product is the solution. 🙂

37 Nancy S. May 19, 2010 at 9:47 pm

I have thick, fine hair that tends to look flat. I use volumizing shampoo and have it cut with layers.

38 tina reynolds May 19, 2010 at 9:49 pm

I have really really frizzy hair thanks for the chance to win

39 Jenna Wood May 19, 2010 at 10:33 pm

I have very long, curly hair that frizzes up at the slightest hint of moisture in the air.

41 Donna K May 19, 2010 at 10:55 pm

I get split ends. I have to trim my hair frequently to get rid of them.

43 very married May 20, 2010 at 10:29 am


my hair is broken around my face because i wear headbands all the time… but it’s a never ending cycle because to keep the flyaways back, i use a head band!
