Wine Hair Gel, Or What to Do With That Crappy Bottle of Merlot from Your Last Dinner Party

Thank goodness for hair gel. Now we can all finally get over our Sideways "I'm not drinking any f#cking merlot!" complex. Of course, we all know that celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson makes a mean cocktail party chignon (a fancy and expensive name for your grandmom's bun). Now he's added a line of wine-inspired hair products - Build It (volumizer), Fix It (gel), Tame It (frizz control). And, at $20 a pop, they're considerably less than Gibson's hourly bun-making rate. The purported Happy Hour hair-changing ingredient? Merlot.

Pump-and-spray is perhaps not quite the type of bottling fans of Merlot had in mind, but hey, why not. As for why the grape is the chosen ingredient, a press release touts its antioxidants and ability to "prevent deterioration of the hair's proteins from environmental stresses." Here's another anti-stress solution: Drink a damn bottle of Merlot.
