A lot has changed in 10 years.  In 2010…

  • The first iPad was introduced, and we were only on iPhone 4
  • Instagram had just been created; Facebook still dominated
  • The Saints won their first Super Bowl
  • The Affordable Care Act was signed into law

And, there hasn’t been another census since then. Maybe not a big deal to everyone, but in an industry where we rely on knowing the population, the census is important!

They say, “it’s just hair, it will grow back”…right? While that saying may be somewhat true, we know that hair is seen as a crown of glory (especially for women). Hair can be something people envy others for, and it can also be used as a weapon to label a group or culture as “other.”  The expression of beauty through hairstyles has been a long-standing signature of Black culture. From the "fro" to hair wraps to braids, Black men and women use their hairstyles as a personal expression of who they are and to show the evolution of Black culture over time.

As qualitative researchers, we often find ourselves in the trenches with consumers, seeing firsthand the environments, interactions, and behaviors that influence their daily lives. This also means seeing consumers’ challenges play out in real-time. As multicultural researchers, especially, it is our job to bridge the gap between our clients and a specific cultural cohort.

Clients often come to us with the request, “How do I reach the African American consumer?”  Sounds easy enough, right? But it may not be that simple. Cultural identity in today’s world is an ever-evolving concept that some consumers ponder continuously, and how individuals identify themselves can have a profound impact on their behaviors and preferences.
