“TikTok made me buy it”: The biggest haircare trends of 2023

Once the TikTok—specifically BeautyTok—community is behind a brand, there’s no stopping the momentum. Despite predictions Instagram will still outpace the growth rate of the video sharing app over the next four years, TikTok continues to serve as a key source of beauty inspiration for consumers and brands. Cementing the platform’s influence is its very own hashtag, #tiktokmademebuyit, which has accumulated over 8 billion views to date, and enabled thousands of beauty products to reach viral status.
