Garnier: Activation with Lots of Potential
You may have seen Joe’s recent blog about the partnership between Best Buy and Children’s of Minnesota. The partnership includes some pretty unique and well-suited activation. Inspired by that partnership, I set out to find some additional examples of good activation programs.
Garnier, a division of L’Oreal, caught my attention because of its activation around its sponsorship of Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival. As a major sponsor of Bonnaroo, Garnier Fructis hosted the Rock Your Style Bonnaroo Salon. The salon offered hair washing, hair styling, free samples, karaoke and giveaways. The full-scale salon allowed concertgoers of the multi-day festival an opportunity to freshen up – a much needed amenity after several days of camping and apparently limited shower facilities.
