ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, NJ (October 15, 2014) – Great hair can change your day for the better.

Dove® Hair is pleased to announce its collaboration with PRIV, a leading on-demand beauty and wellness app. Together, Dove Hair and PRIV will offer accessible, high-quality hair products and services to help women achieve those great hair days – anytime, anywhere.

With plans to launch in San Francisco, London and beyond, PRIV continues to expand its footprint and provide a convenient and affordable solution for on-the-go personal care needs.

“Real women are at the heart of the Dove brand and we strive to make the world of beauty feel very personal and adaptive to her routine,” said Rob Candelino, VP and General Manager for Unilever Hair Care. “Today’s woman has an increasingly plugged-in, hypertasking life, and we want to show up when and where she needs us. Together with PRIV, we’re bringing excellent hair care literally to her doorstep with accessible, on-demand services and products that will nourish and improve the condition of her hair. We want to provide an experience that not only makes her look beautiful, but feel beautiful too.”
