NFL Partner Procter & Gamble Offers VIP Style Lounge for NFL Draft Prospects and their Families

Braun, Gillette, Head & Shoulders, Old Spice, Secret and Pantene
Providing Grooming and Beauty Services to Prepare Top Prospects and
their Families for the Most Anticipated Moment of their careers

PHILADELPHIA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The future stars of the National Football League will have the moment of
their dreams on stage tomorrow night, but first comes the preparation
for the bright lights. The P&G VIP Style Lounge will welcome top
prospects and their families with premier services to help them look and
feel their best before primetime coverage begins from Philadelphia.

Several beauty and male grooming brands like Gillette®,
Old Spice®, Head & Shoulders®, Braun, Secret® and Pantene®
will provide complimentary services at the VIP Salon including hair
styling, shaving and grooming, makeup, and manicures and pedicures to
ensure the next generation of NFL stars and their families shine.

“Hearing your name called is one of those moments you constantly keep in
mind when you’re grinding away during practice day after day,” said Jonathan
(Defensive End, University of Alabama). “I want to be prepared
for that moment and Braun is making sure my facial hair is looking sharp
for the bright lights. It’s a special time for my family and my new
fiancée, and spending some time in the P&G VIP Style Lounge is going to
have us looking and feeling our best heading into tomorrow night.”

Allen is joined by others such as top quarterback prospects Mitch
(QB, UNC) and Deshone Kizer (QB, Notre Dame).

“I rock a little scruff and have some goatee action going on every now
and then, despite objections from most of my family and especially my
mom,” said Trubisky. “Gillette is coming in during the clutch to help me
out before tomorrow night, and as a result, keeping my mom happy too.
The Trubiskys will be feeling good and rejuvenated after spending some
time in the P&G VIP Style Lounge.”

Gillette and Braun are providing clean shaves and facial hair grooming.
Head & Shoulders is offering shampoos and hair styling to ensure
confidence is shining through tomorrow night. Old Spice has brought its
iconic scents, and Pantene and Secret are pampering moms, girlfriends
and sisters of prospects with various services.

The other top prospects expected at the P&G VIP Style Lounge include Malik
(Safety, Ohio State), Deshaun Watson (QB, Clemson),
and John Ross (WR, Washington). As was the case with last year’s
Lounge, other prospects will stop by as part of the onsite draft
festivities. The Lounge will be open Wednesday, April 26 and Thursday,
April 27, ahead of the NFL Draft Red Carpet.

“The P&G VIP Style Lounge is in its third year and we’re excited to now
bring it to Philadelphia,” said P&G’s Janet Fletcher, Director, Sports
Marketing. “It’s received great feedback from the prospects’ families
over the last two years and we’re really happy with how our family of
brands can help these athletes and their families prepare for a huge
moment in their lives.”
