Clairol is a personal care-product division of company Coty, specializing in hair coloring and hair care, that was begun in 1931 by Americans Joan Gelb and her husband Lawrence M. Gelb, along with business partner and lifelong friend James Romeo, after discovering hair-coloring preparations while traveling in France. The company was widely recognized in its home country, the United States, for its “Miss Clairol” home hair-coloring kit introduced in 1956. By 1959, Clairol was considered the leading company in the U.S. hair-coloring industry. In 2004, Clairol registered annual sales worth about US$1.6 billion from the sale of its hair-care products. As of 2014, Clairol manufactures hair-coloring products sold under the brand names “Natural Instincts”, “Nice ‘n Easy”, and “Perfect Lights”

Jem, also known as Jem and the Holograms, is an American animated television series that ran from 1985 to 1988 on first-run syndication in the United States. The series is about music company owner Jerrica Benton, her singer alter-ego Jem, her band the Holograms, and their adventures. The series was a joint collaboration by Hasbro, Sunbow Productions and Marvel Productions, the same team responsible for G.I. Joe and Transformers. The creator of the series, Christy Marx, had also been a staff writer for the aforementioned programs. The animation for most of the episodes was provided by Japanese animation studio Toei Animation.
The inclusion of music videos in Jem was a result of the success and popularity of MTV at the time which began airing four years prior. The placement of the songs throughout each episode was done to complement the story and the use of music videos in the show was considered “radical” for the time. The show contains a total of 187 music videos with 151 unique songs.
