Hair product commercials are so repetitive: woman shakes around long, lustrous mane of hair, supermodel attempts to read off of cue card, etc, etc. So major bonus points to Clairol for putting Angela Kinsey from “The Office” in their new commercials for their Nice ‘N Easy dye. She plays “Gigi,” a helpful best friend/fairy godmother type who advises women on what they’re doing wrong with their hair color and how to fix it. Clairol would get even more points if they let Angela be her badass self without also having to cast a hair-swishing pretty girl, but this is definitely a step in the right direction. And it’s actually amusing, which is saying a lot for a hair-product commercial.
