Coty swoops on Britain’s Good Hair Day to strengthen its position in professional hair care

Beauty giant Coty has reached a definitive agreement to acquire Good Hair Day (usually referred as ‘ghd’), a premium brand in high-end hairstyling appliances from Lion Capital LLP for approximately ₤420 million (ca.USD$510 million) in cash.

ghd products represent the top of the range in its category, attracting strong loyalty with both professionals and consumers. ghd’s products are known for unsurpassed quality, beautiful design and excellent performance, and will enable Coty to offer salon partners and their clients an enhanced and more premium range of hair solutions. Coty also aims to accelerate ghd’s strong track record of growth through its channel and category capabilities combined with ghd’s strong innovation pipeline, superior technology and robust technical expertise,” explains Coty in a release.

The addition of ghd’s market-leading and high-performance lines of hair straighteners, hairdryers, curlers and other hairstyling appliances is expected to further strengthen Coty’s worldwide position in the professional hair category.

Good Hair Day generated ₤178 million in revenues in fiscal year 2016. The brand is headquartered in London and has commercial operations in the United Kingdom, Australia, the United States, Germany, France, Spain, Italy and several other markets. The company has been expanding from its core salon channel into premium retail and e-commerce. ghd will become part of the Coty Professional Beauty division, where it will be managed as a standalone business led by its current CEO Anthony Davey and management team. Anthony Davey will report to Sylvie Moreau, President of Coty Professional Beauty.

Not only do we expect ghd to strengthen our professional hair portfolio and enable Coty to provide even better hair solutions, but we also believe there is strong growth potential for ghd across several markets,” commented Camillo Pane, Coty Chief Executive Officer.
