After five years on home shopping television, no!no! Hair continues to break records, as more than 300,000 no!no! Hair units have been sold through this channel in the U.S. alone - and 3.5 million units have been sold worldwide to date.
“Home shopping television is an extremely important contributor to no!no!’s multi-tiered marketing platform,” said Dr. Dolev Rafaeli, CEO of PhotoMedex and President and CEO of Radiancy Inc. “We are always pleased to set new sales records for ourselves and our business partners, especially when we are beating the records we have set. The results of this event are particularly impressive when considering that much of the Northeast, which represents a large home shopping and direct-to-consumer target market, was engrossed in dealing with the after-effects of last week’s hurricane.”
The previous 24-hour beauty event TV home shopping sales record was achieved over the 2012 Fourth of July holiday when more than 41,000 no!no! devices were sold.As part of last Sunday’s one-day event, the brand launched the new animal color, limited edition no!no! Hair devices. Leopard is being shown by many of the world’s top fashion designers this fall and the no!no! brand personal care products are capitalizing on this fashion trend. Featured as the no!no! Professional Hair Removal Glam Set, the offer also included a faux snakeskin special case with mirror as well as other no!no! complementary products.
