About this entry

Position Aveda as a trusted source for how-to education in the minds of younger, "do-it-yourself" millennial consumers.

Why does this entry deserve to win?

Leverage the professional authority of Aveda Artists and social-savvy influencers to create on-trend, shareable tutorial content.

We highlighted three on-trend styles through branded content to be pulsed on Aveda owned communication channels. We then amplified this story by partnering with key digital influencers to re-create the looks for their own channels. Utilizing both owned and user-generated content allowed us reach new and existing guests.

Campaign elements:

- Owned, earned and paid influencer content

- Social media sweepstakes

- Long-form video content


- Salon and Retail Workshops

- Living Aveda blog

- Aveda Network communication
