The Viral Video Chart welcomes a dose of flair this week with L'Oreal Paris' "100 Years of Hairstyles." As one would guess, the clip chronicles 10 decades of products and trends, highlighting everything from the first pomade for men (1920s) to finger curls (1930s) and the afro (1970s). Charting its debut at No. 6, the video has notched 7.5 million views, outpacing VVC regulars like Samsung and Wendy's.
Ad Age's Viral Video Chart, powered by Visible Measures, focuses on brand-driven social video ad campaigns.
