Breaking into the South East Asia hair care category isn’t easy. TRESemme, was a challenger brand that had been experiencing rapid growth globally – but had ambitious growth plans for the region – particularly Indonesia (where every third ad is for hair care) & the Philippines ( with a budget 1/5 that of the leading shampoo). The challenge was to introduce the brand to the key target audience- 20-35 year old discerning style-seekers – and gain brand awareness amidst big competition. The strategy – to become part of the content that discerning style seekers love and turn to for fashion insights. Enter TRESemme’s Inner Top Model, a collaboration with one of the most popular show is SE Asia – Asia’s Next Top Model.
