JAKKS Pacific will unveil its portfolio of CGH styling heads, wigs, hair styling tools, and hair accessories at the International Toy Fair in New York on February 22-25, 2020. The entire toy line will be available worldwide, launching in August 2020, with prices ranging from $9.99-$39.99.
Cute Girls Hairstyles is the No. 1 hair styling channel on YouTube created by hairstyling expert and lifestyle influencer Mindy McKnight. CuteGirlsHairstyles.com quickly went from a website, launched in late 2008, to the Cute Girls Hairstyles YouTube channel launched in early 2009. While Mindy’s hairstyle tutorials began as a hobby, they have paved the way to a large family social media empire, including over 25 million followers across all social platforms.
“The Cute Girls Hairstyles toy line allows girls to take what they have learned from my videos and then apply and practice the skills at home. The product line will enhance my audience’s overall experience with my online content and overall is a natural extension of the CGH brand,“ said Mindy McKnight.
“Cute Girls Hairstyles’ founder Mindy McKnight has an incredible following, and we are thrilled to bring a strong line of products to hairstyle enthusiasts of all ages," said Jill Nordquist, SVP Marketing, JAKKS Pacific.
