Saks Fifth Avenue is giving away something for free, and it's not a dinky nylon bag with testers you'll only use for travel! On August 26, Frederic Fekkai will launch his nationwide Style Trial, during which the store will be giving away your choice of four complimentary full-sized Fekkai styling products. You heard that right—a big ol' bottle of product, all for just having a head of hair. Pick between your desired look of Shine, Body, Color Protection or Straightening, but get there early. The entire "registration process" appears to be as confusingly non-interactive as bringing in a slip of paper with your contact info, so it'll be full-blown first-come-first-serve. Guess Saks isn't hopping on the "twitterverse" bandwagon this time around. [Fekkai]
