Media Essay Comparing Hair Products - Pantene Pro-V Winter Rescue and Paul Mitchell Luxury Hair Care

Extracts from this document...


Media Essay Comparing Hair Products - Pantene Pro-V Winter Rescue and Paul Mitchell Luxury Hair Care I have looked at adverts for Pantene Pro-V Winter Rescue products and Paul Mitchell Luxury Hair Care products to compare the two. I think that both adverts are trying to make you think that by using their products you will be made to feel healthy and beautiful, but this is achieved in different ways. The main difference between the two adverts is that they would appeal to people in different seasons.

The model is wearing a jumper and has her hair wrapped around her like a scarf, which makes her look warm and cosy. She is also quite tanned which a lot of people wish to look like throughout the winter when it is cold and there is very little sun. The advert is made to look wintery as it has a light blue/grey background and snowflakes, which contrasts to the warm colours the girl is wearing. There is quite a lot of writing on both adverts, but it is made to look like less by aligning it on the right hand side and separating it into smaller and more manageable paragraphs. They have used simple language to get the point across and use words which catch your attention. ...read more.


I think that females of a variety of ages from teenagers to middle-aged women would be attracted to these adverts as they feature models who are fairly young, but not too young to make older age groups feel that this is a look that they would be unable to achieve. Also, because the products are for hair most people would be able to relate to what the adverts are saying. In conclusion I think that they are both good adverts and both portray what they are supposed to. However, I think that overall the Pantene advert is the more successful of the two because it concentrates on the high quality and results of the product as opposed to the price. By bringing up the price so often in the Paul Mitchell advert it makes the product sound cheap and can leave you unsure of the quality of the product. ...read more.
