International Beauty Trendspotting at 49th Edition of Cosmoprof Worldwide

The 49th edition of Cosmoprof Worldwide was held in Bologna from March 18 through 21, 2016. Cosmoprof Worldwide unearthed some interesting International beauty and grooming trends that will no doubt filter into the American market … and your beauty bag or dopp kit over the coming months. The eye behind the beauty and grooming trendspotting was Cosmoprof North America Marketing Director, Daniela Ciocan -- a woman who is known as a true industry influencer with an uncanny ability to spot the trends that we’ll be sporting in the upcoming seasons. 

Daniela shares a list of the top trends that will most likely be on display at the upcoming Cosmoprof North America in Las Vegas -- July 24-26, 2016. Cosmoprof North America is also home to the North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA), which our very own TME Editor, Yvonne Pearce Mazzulo, had the pleasure of serving as a judge for this highly prestigious event.

Looking ahead, let’s check out what will be on trend for Summer, Fall, and Winter 2016/2017!
