OH, GOODY: Goody Products is getting ready for its close-up. The hair accessories division of Newell Rubbermaid is launching the brand’s first TV ad campaign this spring. Beginning April 19 is a 30-second spot featuring Goody’s Spin Pin, which creates an undone bun and is said to do the work of 20 bobby pins. Last month, Goody tested out an as-seen-on-TV direct sales spot, also touting Spin Pin. “We saw that this type of advertising works for the category,” said Goody’s marketing director, Amy Sleep.
