Only Hair Product in Latin GRAMMY(R) Awards Gift Baskets: Finesse(TM) Selected for 8th Annual Latin Grammy Gift Basket

STAMFORD, Conn., Oct. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Lornamead, Inc., a global leader in personal care products, announces the selection of Finesse(TM) shampoos and conditioners for inclusion in the Latin GRAMMY(R) Awards Gift Baskets for top celebrities.

Gift baskets are given only to Presenters and Performers of the 8th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards, to be held November 8th at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. This year those celebrities are expected to include Juan Luis Guerra, Camila, Conjunto Primavera and Laura Pausini, among others.

Finesse shampoos, conditioners and styling products have been favorites among Hispanic consumers for years, according to George P. Russell, CEO of Lornamead, Inc.

"We are honored to be joining the elite company of these accomplished performers," Russell said. "As national sponsors of quinceanera programs and events, Finesse hair care products enjoy an increasing popularity in the Latino community."

The 8th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards will be broadcast live on the Univision network from 8 - 11 p.m. ET/PT. In addition, the broadcast also will be distributed internationally to more than 100 countries.
