1. Social media said to be shaping the beauty industry
At Diamond Designs, we love being active on social media, keeping up to date with what
you’re all up to, and keeping you up to date with our latest too. In a recent survey by Dove,
30% of women admitted that their beauty purchasing decisions are influenced by social
media. Social media is rapidly changing the way beauty brands connect with their
customer, so if you’re a beauty business owner, ensure you are being consistent and
adding value across all of your online channels.
2. 3D printed hair is actually a thing
We were slightly taken aback when we heard this one too, is there anything they can’t print
these days?! 3D printed hair isn’t technically a new innovation, as it first became available
around a year ago, but it’s the advances in the technology that could have an effect on the
beauty industry. With the machine now being able to make smaller hairs than ever before,
the technology may be used in the production of makeup brushes, to make the fibres
smaller and softer, making makeup brushes even better and more affective.
3. Beauty industry ranks third for ‘brand intimacy’
According to the MBLM’s Brand Intimacy Report, the health and beauty industry ranked
third. MLBM defines brand intimacy as “an essential relationship between a person and
brand that transcends usage, purchase and loyalty."
Chanel was ranked as the most intimate brand in the industry. Also in the top 10 was
bareMinerals, Olay, MAC, Dove, L’Oreal, Clinique, Estee Lauder and Bobbi Brown.
Retail sales in the beauty industry has grown globally by 4.5 per cent every single year
over the last twenty years, so it’s clear to see that the industry just keeps getting bigger.
