A unique algorithm designed to analyse beauty trend information powers the starting point for our forecast exploration.
Our bespoke in-house software monitors qualitative data across a variety of platforms from video to social media and blog content. It processes natural language into numbers and statistics. Data sets are valuable in this growing digital age but it doesn't define the future beauty conversation. Instead, we use it as fuel to power the content we provide.
Why process natural language?
Creating quantitative data from language allows us to spot newly emerging trends and study changes in consumer focus, social media and how other industries affect beauty.
Sales data and existing popularity metrics tell a story after the fact. They’re important for tracking established ideas but don’t have the context to look to the future. Our trend reports discuss:
- “the story so far…”,
- “what’s next?”
- "why is this shift occurring?"
- "what could this mean for the future?"
