Face it, your hair has a mind and temperament of its own. Which is why beauty startup Function of Beauty offers customized shampoos and conditioners with over 12 billion possible combinations.

Here’s how it works: You log on to their site and take a short hair quiz. Do you have straight, wavy or curly hair? Is it fine or coarse? Then it’s time to select five hair goals (this editor’s wish is to be frizz-free) before you move on to the fun stuff: What color do you want your concoction to be? And better yet, what scent?

For those of us who prefer a little face time, Function of Beauty is launching a Nolita pop-up where customers can watch their shampoo and conditioner being made. The best part: Each bottle is personalized with Function of {shoppers name} so your roommate, S.O., little sister knows to back off.
