Critical Analysis Of A Åoréal Paris Advertisement

817 words - 3 pages

The advertisement for this Åoréal Paris' hair product persuades young, white adults in college to purchase the product through the use of sexual suggestion which is an effective strategy. The target audience is led to expect sexual attention from the opposite sex though the use of this product. This advertising tactic proves that advertisers use many levels of psychological stimuli to manipulate potential consumers into desiring the products.The advertisement covers two magazine pages with the intent to capture the reader's attention. Nothing distracts from the ad, forcing the reader to spend time on the ad, even if just skimming the page. The first thing that grabs the target audience's gaze is the man on the left page looking directly at the reader. He appears to be in his early twenties with a white and light blue t-shirt on.

Her hair is in a state of disorder and she is relaxed and seems "gratified".Both models appear before a blue background, the top of which reads 'Åoréal' across both pages. Directly underneath is the phrase "Make a mess!" continuing below, "Out of bed". To the right of the woman the product is pictured with the lid off and the container skewed diagonally to give it a rebellious and exciting look. The name on the bottle is 'Åoréal Paris: Special FX Studio Line: Out of Bed: Lasting Messy Effect: Fibre Putty'. The white putty within the container is spiked and sticking out in random directions resembling the look of the desired hair style. Lastly, printed under the man is the slogan "free your head" followed by the company's website.This ad brings up truths about society and its sex roles. The man's carefree look of "so what" is acceptable because of the idea that young men can be promiscuous. The ad projects this message to all who see it and perpetuate this belief,...
