Some Women Happen To Like "Follically Challenged" Men

Real Estate Broker/Owner with North Shore Suburbs & Chicago Real Estate

Men with hair.  Men without hair.  It’s all the same to me.  In my eyes, the content of a man’s character, his personality, integrity, sense of humor, and kindness quotient are so much more important than how much hair he has on his head.

That being said, I just couldn’t resist creating this blog.  While browsing through a Bass Pro Shop in Grapevine, TX the other day, I stumbled upon this stop-me-in-my-tracks, eye-catching display.  Now, this is what I call clever marketing and it actually made me chuckle out loud!

Where do they come up with this stuff??

Funny and effective. I bet they sell well to the follically challenged segment of the market. :) Thanks for sharing Carie!

Men always have a large selection of lids to choose from. Cheaper than hairpieces!

I love a man in a baseball cap! My Dad always wore them.

Carie, a bunch of years ago, I had a ad that had the heading, "I love bald guys!"  I mean, they have better things to do than growing hair!

glad it is not my hair that makes my future grow, and not recede like my hairline!

LOVE it, Carie!!  I call that great marketing ... and great pricing!  $2.99 for a hat??  And for those of us that are "follickly challenged" ... it doesn't always mean NO hair.   I'm challenged on the other end.  TOO much hair.  Hard to keep that $2.99 hat on my head!!

Have a great weekend ...

This is clever marketing and will make me think more carefully about my selection of caps.

How can we match this with our real estate marketing?  Good challenge to have in mind.

Have a wonderful weekend.

This is great. I've seen this on a postcard....and it said Colorado's Favorite Hair Piece. I joke with my husband about this all the time. He likes to wear hats.
