7 How women who are interested in beauty choose brands

8 Quantitative Sample 1000 interviews amongst 20-60 year old, ABC1C2 women Agreeing with at least 4 out of the following statements: I only buy exotic bath products I only buy the best makes / labels in life I regularly visit a beauty salon I spend hours pampering myself I only drink expensive wine I like splashing out on beauty products I keep up to date with the latest fashions

9 Overall, these women categorise toiletries on a continuum from ‘everyday’ to ‘luxury’ Body lotion Face creams Exfoliants Bath Salts Haircare Toothpaste Makeup Mouthwash More everydayMore luxury Unusually Shampoo/haircare products encompass both ends of the spectrum The condition & appearance of their hair is almost more important to these women than make up

10 Choosing shampoo - The never ending journey…? These women appeared to enjoy the amount of choice available to them Few feel as if they have arrived at a perfect solution The amount of ‘claims’ by brands forces a large amount of self-diagnosis regarding their hair Whilst this can cause some anxiety, most enjoy the choice and tend to believe that there could be a better / more effective product somewhere in the market They are inveterate trialists……..

11 Prompts for purchase The desire to ‘switch’ products Change in hair ‘state’ Whimsical Habitual Part of same range as existing product POS offers New product claim Read review/news WOM What ‘I’ want External Messages No set process for decision making, any of these factors can be most influential at each purchase occasion

12 Magazines & TV are cited as the main sources of information about the category, but the internet plays a role too Primary source of ad messages Celebrities used to ‘sell the dream’ of great hair – not always believed Some resistance to overly scientific content Heavyweight campaigns have potential for ‘overkill’ Highly accepted source of new product info Praised for educational messages and free samples Good fit between ‘me time’ usage of magazines and haircare category Currently used to pro-actively source information about products Also some incidence of reading news, reviews online TV Magazines Internet

13 Personal recommendations are often the key to choice Word of mouth also a much valued source of information on the haircare category Hairdressers tips/recommendations What’s worked for friends/family Also receptive to positive/negative comments about their own hair Will change/stick with their shampoos off the back of this

14 Online advertising also reaches a good percentage of the target audience 39 advertisements were tested across 3 media 9 TV ads 15 press ads 15 online ads
