Sao Paulo, Brazil, September 21, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- It seemed to peak last summer, when almost everywhere you looked there was a head sprouting feathers. But the feather hair extension trend that dominated among American teenagers and women has not subsided. Instead, it’s gone global.
“It’s been huge,” said Derrick Porter. Porter is president of Beauty Depot, an online beauty supply company that carries twenty types of hair feathers. “Hair feathers are very, very hot right now - not just in America, but around the world.”
Porter said at a recent Brazil trade show, he gave away thousands of samples almost instantly. “Beauty trends have become increasingly global,” said Porter.
With increased globalization and the emergence of a middle class in many developing countries, beauty companies can expand their base by catering to the international market. “It’s no longer just about what sells in LA, but what sells in Rio or Shanghai,” said Porter.
