Celebrities Collaborate for Vegan Hair Care Line

Rosario Dawson and Natalie Imbruglia have teamed up with hair care expert Tara Smith for a new cruelty-free product series.

On Thursday, hairstylist Tara Smith launched a new line of cruelty-free vegan hair care products for Marks and Spencer alongside celebrity pals such as actress Rosario Dawson and vegetarian singer Natalie Imbruglia. Smith promotes the new Leaping Bunny-certified line—which includes shampoo, conditioner, and styling gel—as “tested on film stars, not on animals,” and Imbruglia tells Yahoo! Lifestyle that she was one of the proverbial guinea pigs for the serums. Smith also tells the website, “A lot of people still test on animals, and to be in 2012 [or 2013] it is absolutely inhumane to be doing that …  I wanted to be brave and really do something different.” The launch party, held at Sketch in London, featured a vegetarian menu with dishes such as “croquet” monsieurs and chilled tomato gazpacho.
