SANJAYA, HAIR GOD: Judging from the whirlwind that surrounded the vocal abilities, or lack thereof, of the latest castoff of “American Idol,” it’s doubtful Sanjaya Malakar will have a future filled with music deals. But in today’s world of celebrity spokespeople, the hair-savvy lad may be solicited by hair companies seeking a celeb face: Malakar’s various coifs and hair color shades were, for many viewers, the most anticipated aspects of his performances.

POPPING UP: As the official hair care sponsor of Bravo’s hairstyling competition series “Shear Genius,” Nexxus teamed with Allure to create the Nexxus Shear Genius Pop Up salon. With temporary salons in two major markets including Minneapolis and New York, customers could stop by the spaces and have their hair styled for free by celebrity stylist Roy Teeluck, who is a guest judge on an episode of the show.

As part of the initiative, Nexxus has also provided in-store signage to salons nationwide.
