Hair care industry

The haircare segment is one of the most dynamic areas of the beauty industry. The complexity of product offerings influenced by geographic factors, social and cultural make haircare one of the most challenging industries for marketing professionals.


The Challenge

With beauty trends continuously changing in our digital age, it's far from easy for a large commerce company to stay up to date and continue developing the most innovative products.  Each year, companies use desk research which brings in a multitude of information sources together and enables them to map out consumer trends all across the world. Although insights resulting from desk research create a rich cultural context, they lack a quantitative component. The focus had to be refined to discover how different insights complement each other to better understand the consumer and uncover trends. In order to find out how women communicate about hair and hairstyles on a visual level, an alternate research method was needed that validated insights into actionable solutions.

The Solution
