Consort Haircare was losing ground in the marketplace. So much ground, in fact, that we started to wonder if the regular guy was going extinct… Men were increasingly buying competitor’s metrosexual products because they were being held to higher and unrealistic standards of beauty by the media and were feeling pressured to conform to the metrosexual trend. As the craze came into full bloom and convinced American men that they needed to spend hundreds of dollars on a single pair of designer jeans, Consort, the original brand of hairspray for guys, began losing shelf space to overpriced brands like American Crew. Thousands of men were being pressured by media and the billion-dollar-driven Madison Avenue to join the metrosexual trend. They are unhappy conforming because the metrosexual lifestyle does not represent who they really are. In response to the woes of men everywhere, Alberto Culver enlisted the help of Moon Landing.
