Beauty Trends Coming Soon to a Beauty Counter Near You: Skin Care, Hair Care, Nail Care
As with every industry, the beauty industry is no different with trends – they catch on. One product begins the trend and as competitors see the popularity they jump on the bandwagon so to speak. Usually, we start seeing the trends approximately 3 years after the first “hero” product is introduced.

These conditions can lead to hair thats thin, weak or greasy hair.
Hair Care: Powders
Unlike, how powders were used in 18th century [for mainly adding colour to wigs], today’s powders offer a plethora of benefits. Benefits from oil removal, to texturizing to volumizing.
Tools: Infusing Ingredients
Our tools have been just that in the past. A hair dryer, flatiron or water filter for that matter. The trend that we have seen becoming more mainstream is the infusion of product through these tools.
