Remington® T|Studio™ PROtect™ Straightener Wins Allure “Beauty Breakthrough” Award

Innovative Hair Tool Receives Coveted Title in 2015

MIDDLETON, Wis.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Remington® T|Studio™ PROtect™ Straightener was the only hair
tool of 13 products selected for Allure’s highly sought after
Best of Beauty Breakthrough Awards – considered the industry’s highest
honor. Remington, the personal care division of Spectrum Brands, is
thrilled to be chosen as a winner as the Allure Breakthrough
Awards highlight the most innovative, game-changing beauty launches of
the year.

The revolutionary T|Studio PROtect Straightener with vapor infusion
technology conditions and nourishes before straightening hair — which
results in a sleek style without damage. For maximum protection from
heat styling, a cool micro-vapor is misted onto hair and absorbed into
the cuticle to protect hair (68% more protection*), reduce frizz (90%
more frizz control*) and ensure a long-lasting, silky finish.

Experts interviewed by Allure were impressed by the brand’s
innovative use of the vapor technology at the critical point in the hair
straightening process, recommending the tool for a healthier,
longer-lasting finish.

Since its launch last Spring, the tool has been recognized by many
consumer publications including Harper’s Bazaar, O, The Oprah
, People StyleWatch, US Weekly and others for true
innovation and differentiation in the hair tool category. Devon Smiddy,
Division Vice President, Personal Care Marketing said, “The exclusive
technology we developed for the T|Studio PROtect Straightener alleviates
a major consumer concern within the market – users no longer have to
choose between heat styling and their hair health. Remington is
extremely proud to be acknowledged as an innovator with this launch.”

The Remington T|Studio PROtect Straightener is part of the “T|Studio”
line and available at Target, Walmart, and Ulta stores or online at,, and For more information visit
