Shockwaves

Hair pins!

1. Visit the hairdressers. 2. Take a photo of your new hair style. 3. Upload and pin it on the Shockwaves interactive map! As easy as 1-2-3!

I'm a bit of a nerd for statistics and figures so I would love to see the range of hair styles people are getting all around the country (or the world)!

Yeah that would be good, plus good advertising for the hairdressers! I think the problem with that might arise from hairdressers using a different brand because if you were advertising the effects of Shockwaves without Shockwave products it would be false advertising!

Yeah, I wasn't really looking at it from that angle, more of a different way for people to share pics about hair online as the challenge suggests. If it was going to be a problem then I suppose you could change it to Shockwaves styles and people can share the looks they have created using their products but keep the mapping feature! :)

Oooh right I'm with you now! Got the complete wrong end of the stick there! Yeah, I like that idea, you could tag details to it like "up do", "coloured", "shaved" or whatever and then you could even get a map of what kind of styles are most popular where! If you're really into statistics ;)

And you could get some regional competition involved!

The map could also be used to show the hairdressers stocking and using the products for styling, if the hairdressers was included, just to make sure it was definitely aimed at Shockwaves.

this would be interesting to see and could also fire up some competitiveness as some people tend to be very proud of their own region and would enjoy taking it to the top.

haha very true and I would wonder about how secure the jobs would be of the shockwaves employees who invested in this idea only to see them lose large amounts of revenue as a result.

My experience of hairdressers too if that they tend to use high quality products or those which work and give them the highest profit margins which won't always be shockwaves.

This is a great idea and as others have mentioned it could also be great advertising for hairdressers.
