The main tool of back-to-school cool

In schools across the nation, there is an undeniable “pecking order” based on a series of qualities that make up “coolness.” Embracing this reality, we created a back-to-school campaign inspired by educational film strips, establishing haircuts as they primary currency of coolness. In a fun and quirky way, we returned parents to the good old days of good times and cool hair.

True Love

While nothing is universally cool, everyone has a hairstyle.

Inspired by educational films and film-strips — narrated by none other than the school principal — we returned parents to the good old days of back-to-school battles for dominance through good looks and attractive hair.

“My Summer Vacation: A Tale Of Grooming, Styling and Prepping.”

Excuse us, but the principal would like to talk to you.
