A luxury haircare brand is hiring its first ever Chief Shower Officer and will pay that lucky ‘executive’ $5,000 just to wash their locks.
Fekkai Haircare, the high-end brand founded by A-list hairstylist Frederic Fekkai, is looking for a beauty lover to join its team of C-suite executives in the 30-day position, which involves testing and reviewing new products, providing feedback, and documenting their thoughts on social media.
‘Throughout the 30-day position, the Chief Shower Officer will be responsible for providing a weekly “suds report” recapping their experience with the products, documenting their results on social media and providing feedback for future product development,’ the brand said in a statement.

Speaking about the new position in a video posted on the brand’s official YouTube account, Mr. Fekkai – who counts Cameron Diaz, Debra Messing and Anne Hataway among his clientele – said: ‘To apply, visit our website and tell us a little bit about yourself.
‘This may just be the most important position we have ever hired for. Welcome to the C-suite.’
To apply for the beauty-based role, would-be CSOs, who have to be over the age of 21, need to put together a short Instagram video about themselves, explaining why they think they would be suited for the unique position.
They are then being asked to post the video on their account using the hashtag #FekkaiCalm.
Other requirements for the role include: ‘having a shower, hair, and at least 15 years of experience washing their own hair’ and ‘a presence on social media channels’.
