Challenge

Transforming Musk Hair Co into an Eco-Friendly Haven

Cheryelle King and the Musk Hair Co team sought to challenge the salon experience by integrating eco-friendly products and a touch of luxury, aiming to redefine not just clients’ hair but also their self-perception. Approached by this creative and environmentally conscious group, we faced the challenge of crafting a brand and launching it into the competitive Newcastle market. Inspired by Cheryelle’s love for musk sticks, the sweet treat known for its floral flavor and aroma akin to musk perfume, we embarked on designing a brand identity, complete with complementary musk sticks for every client.

Response

Crafting a Brand Aligned with Values

During the Research & Discovery phase, we delved into the Psychology of Hair, uncovering the profound impact of a “Good Hair Day” on self-esteem. A commissioned study by Physique, executed by Yale University researchers, revealed that “Bad Hair Days” contribute to heightened self-doubt and personal criticism, affecting both women and men. Leveraging this insight, we meticulously crafted the branding for Musk Hair Co, aligning it with their mission to not only enhance hair but also boost clients’ confidence. The result was a brand identity deeply rooted in the musk sticks concept, complemented by a luxurious salon experience that resonated with environmentally conscious consumers.
