Hair Care

Overview Industry Overview:

Women have always been interested in ways to change their hair color – in Ancient Rome, women even used waste from pigeons in order to lighten their locks. Only 2% of the world is naturally blonde, and only 1% is naturally red-headed. Of course, you probably wouldn’t be able to estimate this by walking down the street and counting heads – as many as three-quarters of American women currently dye their hair.

Despite this startling statistic, hair dye is just one small segment of the greater hair care industry. Approximately 80% of Americans say that they wash their hair twice every day, and by the age of 65, the average woman will have spent a total of 7 months of her life washing, drying, and styling her hair. From shampoos and conditioners to hair sprays and styling gels, hair care products are one of the core elements of our daily personal care routines.

On behalf of myself and the other two members of Thomas Swan’s team charged with finding our new President of Swan Chemical Inc., I would like to say thank you for Ropella’s excellent planning and execution of the search which met all of our needs.  We ended up with the optimum person in this position. Your disciplined search system and superior personnel definitely worked well, even shortly after a devastating hurricane hit the Gulf Coast!

I was impressed with Ropella’s attention to detail in ascertaining our needs, developing the optimum candidate profile and preparing the skills survey, which helped in getting an understanding of candidates beyond the “all good news” that is in resumes. The psychological profiling and innovative reference checking also cut out the positive bias in how these aspects are presented by candidates. The compensation spreadsheet was useful in looking at entire compensation picture from the point of view of the finalists.
