The Curl Experience

Celebrate your curls

For Paul Mitchell’s “The Gathering” in Las Vegas, We Are Matik designed and developed a series of interactive experiences for their “Curls” product release. The attendees at the event, composed of 3000 hair professionals, begin their interactions in the “Curl Experience” with a walk through a maze-like tunnel of projection-mapped walls playing desaturated videos of curly-haired models confessing their day-to-day challenges with naturally curly hair. They are immersed in an audio and visual experience that culminates with their opportunity to record their own confessions in “Confession Booths” situated at the end of the tunnel. The end of the tunnel transitions into Paul Mitchell’s celebratory zone called “Curl World”, where visitors familiarize themselves with the new product line which is designed to tame, yet accentuate naturally curly hair. In contrast to the desaturated, monochromatic “Confession” area at the beginning of the experience, the “Curl World” area is more upbeat with vibrant colors and lively music, signaling a frizz-free future.
