Aussie Kids & BDG: BeYOUtiful Hair
Aussie came to BDG with a desire to promote the launch of its Aussie Kids line through a unique and inclusive content collaboration.
Our hair isn’t simply something we maintain, it’s something that helps us sustain our connection to our culture and each other.
Creating joyous representation of inclusive hair care would not only distinguish Aussie in the marketplace, but create deep affinity for the product from key purchasers and generations to come.
Building The Book
We had the pleasure of collaborating with both esteemed children’s book author Sherri Winston and illustrator Keisha Okafor to develop an original children’s book that brought our intended themes to life.
BeYOUtiful Hair tells the heartwarming story of five children getting ready for career day at school. Along the way, they learn some valuable emotional and practical lessons.
Amplifying The Message
To drive awareness for the book and its themes, we amplified the program with content across BDG’s parenting portfolio.
Hero content on Romper featured actress Kyla Pratt alongside her daughters — which helped drive awareness of the book and Aussie Kids. We continued to generate excitement through content on-site and on social; influencer partnerships; and distribution of the book at local schools.
