It’s no secret we have a city crush on Austin (sorry NYC, you know we still love you), so it’s not terribly surprising that one of our new favorite discoveries comes straight from the heart of Texas. The Austin natives behind Birds Barbershop, the reinvented unisex chain of barbershops that offers quality cuts and color for a song, have a new product line called VERB. Up to now we’ve been pretty miffed that we haven’t been able to hang out at the shops (being in the wrong part of the country and all), but now we can finally get the Austin experience at home.
VERB launched with six products, including a finishing polish and styling cream, and the packaging is the best we’ve seen in a long time. It’s bright and clean and we can picture it looking equally sophisticated in our own bathroom or our boyfriend’s. (Any products that are designed to coordinate with Pantone shades get an A+ from us.)
I’ve already integrated the Finishing Polish into my routine for smoothing out my flyaways. It’s lightweight so no greasiness, and virtually no fragrance means it’s not clashing with my other styling products. All the products also have a natural UV protectant, which will come in handy this summer. And before you start wondering where you can buy them, they’re all available for $12 on ulta.com and in Ulta locations.
