These trend spotters head to centers of culture and take pictures and videos to capture the essence of new trends. Our beauty experts provide insight into how trends manifest in the real life and how these trends “stick.”

Increasingly, the customer journey is influenced online. Social media can rapidly spur purchasing among Early Adopters. For these reasons, we conduct Online Ethnography (Netnography) and Social Listening on a variety of social media networks. We analyze photos, hashtags and memes to provide insight for our clients to capture new opportunities. We follow YouTube stars and vloggers and in many cases have existing relationships with leading Beauty influencers.
