What is the Olaplex Lawsuit About?

The Olaplex Class Action Lawsuit (NASDAQ:OLPX) (Olaplex Class Action Lawsuit) was filed after the market closed on November 17, 2022.

On September 29, 2022, a Piper Sandler analyst downgraded Olaplex to Neutral from Overweight, stating that her work revealed that “competition and misinformation pose growing risks to the company.”

According to the analyst, calls to 150 hair salons across the U.S. suggest Olaplex could be losing a mid-to-high single digit percentage of share in salons, and other hair repair brands like K18 are rising in turn.

Finally, the analyst indicated that she anticipated investments in marketing and education were needed to offset the headwinds and that “little room for valuation upside given the risks at play.”
