I work in the world of advertising and marketing (experiential marketing to be exact) so I love to keep a close eye on what brands are doing. Dove is one of the few brands out there that has made some great ads with real women and addressing issues real women experience. Their new content piece addresses "Hair Shaming", citing that 80% of women feel pressured to wear their hair a certain way. It's an interesting stat and not surprising. On Swirl Nation the topic of hair is always a hot one since the multiracial community and women of color in general are often unfairly judged by their hair.
The video features women with curly hair, natural hair, straightened hair, blonde hair, flowing grey hair, electric blue hair, and short hair. The message is every woman should wear her hair however SHE wants and I agree. Let me know your thoughts on the commercial.
