The Message of the Advertisement

In 2019, let your hair move you forward. From the time we were born, we’ve lived our lives feeling a little anxious about being different and constantly comparing ourselves to others. Somehow, we grew up believing that it’s better to be the same as everyone else, without really understanding why. However, in 2018, Sato Kondo, who proudly lives without coloring or hiding her grey hair, won the admiration of many women.
Japanese baby girl “babychanco” who has full head of voluminous hair, received love from people all over the world. In some way or other, these two may have taught us the importance of expressing our true selves.
In 2019, We hope many more women will take a step forward towards who they want to be. Pantene Japan celebrates all women in taking that first step forward towards who they want to be.

The Special Birthday Movie for babychanco

Pantene Japan sent the short movie titled “The Hairy Tale by babychanco #HairWeGo PANTENE” on December 23rd, 2018 which was the babychanco’s 1st year birthday. The movie features the memory of babychanco's one year from her birth who is well known all over the world as full head of voluminous hair. Looking back at her various hair episodes with our celebration greetings, the story encourages viewers to embrace their own individuality and difference.

This babychanco project started by chance when one of the team member of Pantene found a magazine article about her. The U.S. weekly magazine “People” introduced the baby girl with a comment, "Get this kid a Pantene ad!” babychanco’s unique natural born voluminous hair has been inspiring people around the world to love themselves and to embrace difference which overlaps with the Pantene Japan's brand message,“#HairWeGo My hair moves me forward.”
