DigitasLBi Lets Lady Liberty’s Hair Down for John Frieda

DigitasLBi has just released “A Girl’s Got to be Free,” a new digital spot for John Frieda’s Frizz Ease Hair Care products.

Set at night in New York, the 60-second video features a team of rogue women dressed in black who make their way to Ellis Island. Once there, the crew pulls out harnesses, climbing gear and other equipment and makes their way up the Statue of Liberty. Upon reaching the top, they free Lady Liberty of the bun that has been constricting her for over a century and let her hair down.

“We wanted to create an unexpected online experience that captures the simple, universal truth that when women pull their hair back in resignation to frizz, they pull themselves back. Frizz Ease Hair Care gives her an alternative to this daily struggle and empowers her to step out and conquer each day with confidence. ” explains Melissa Pruessing, VP/Group Account Director at DigitasLBi Chicago.

“A Girl’s Got to be Free” is part of DigitasLBi’s new “Never Pull Back” campaign, which features a new website, as well as “digital paid, owned and earned media” executed by Click 3X. Kao’s USA’s media agency Spark, meanwhile, handled media planning and buying for the campaign. Stick around for credits after the jump. Read more

Her new boss, Kevin Drew Davis, who took on the ECD post for Digitas LBi Chicago and San Francisco in fall 2011, says in a statement,  ”Laura is an impressive creative leader with an eye for big ideas. Her strong creative skill set and innovative storytelling makes her a great fit with our people—we’re thrilled to have her onboard to drive our client work to an even higher level.”

During her 20-year ad career, the Chicago native spent well over a decade at JWT, last serving as a senior partner/CD/writer for clients including Illinois Bureau of Tourism, Kimberly-Clark and Macy’s before splitting in 2007 for a gig at Draftfcb. She spent five years in all at the latter agency, leading creative on accounts ranging from Dow and SC Johnson to Nestle and Blue Cross Blue Shield.
