Headstrong People Share Their Stories with Top Hairdresser in Bed Head’s First-Ever Consumer Campaign



Lucky Generals teams up with director Coral Brown and photographer Sophie Jones on 'Stay Headstrong'

Headstrong People Share Their Stories with Top Hairdresser in Bed Head’s First-Ever Consumer Campaign

A trans activist, a rapper and a comedian talk openly and frankly about their life, inspirations, achievements, challenges, and why their hair is such a huge part of their headstrong personality. All while getting their haircut, in Bed Head’s first-ever consumer-facing campaign.   

Bed Head has recently moved from only being available in salons to being found on retailers’ shelves, so the agency was briefed with launching the brand to consumers for the first time. The agency created a new brand platform, ‘Stay Headstrong’ by delving deeply into Bed Head’s punk roots and “don’t give-a-f*ck” attitude, to enable Bed Head to engage with consumers in an authentic and meaningful way.  

This campaign is the first work to be developed from the platform and is made up of a content series and some beautifully created OOH that will appear as fly posters.  

The films see comedian Lilly Philips, trans activist Lucia Blayke, and rapper FFSYTHO all take to the barber’s chair of Bed Head chief stylist Philip Downing. As he cuts and styles the three of them open up and share their fascinating stories of their journeys, their feelings on getting there and what they think life holds in store. The captivating and compelling films are all around 3-minutes long and will appear on Bed Head’s social channels on 26th September.  

All the content was crafted by a female director, Coral Brown, and a female photographer, Sophie Jones. 

Lewis Mooney, the creative director at Lucky Generals, said: “We always thought the interviews would give us some great content to mould into films; when you’re talking to activists, rappers and stand-ups you’re bound to capture something brilliant. But what bowled us over most was how open each of our interviewees were. As soon as Philip started dressing their hair, the conversation flowed and created something beautiful, human, and powerful. Each interviewee brought something fresh and individual to the table, a perspective to change and challenge our own. Finding what to cut was, ironically, the hardest part of this job.”

Kate Buttery, the CMO of Elida Beauty for Bed Head, said: “The new Bed Head platform is all about Staying Headstrong, and these three amazing and inspirational figures do exactly that. This campaign, created by Lucky Generals, has led to some truly captivating content being created. We are very excited to share the brand with many consumers for the first time and to continue to shape future content with their feedback.”
