Target
 Market
 Segmentation
 

To
 identify
 and
 deconstruct
 the
 market
 of
 the
 Hair
 Salon,
 particular
 importance
 was
 placed
 on
  psychographic
 characteristics
 of
 personality,
 lifestyle
 and
 motives
 (Elliot,
 Ferrell,
 Paladino,
 Pride,
 Rundle-­‐ Thiele,
 &
 Waller
 2006,
 p.
 120).
 A
 behavioural
 analysis
 was
 also
 conducted.
 
 Brief
 consideration
 was
 also
  given
 to
 demographic
 segmentation.
 It
 was
 determined
 that
 the
 key
 demographic
 characteristics
 of
  gender
 and
 age
 were
 females
 between
 the
 ages
 of
 25
 to
 45.

 determination,
 confidence,
 organisation,
 intelligence
 and
 diligence
 further
 define
 the
 target
  market.
 
 It
 is
 these
 attributes
 that
 guide
 their
 predisposition
 to
 engage
 in
 current
 technology
  trends,
 adjust
 to
 new
 situations
 promptly
 and
 acceptance
 flexibility,
 they
 can
 be
 classified
  members
 as
 the
 early
 majority
 of
 the
 diffusion
 process
 (Assael,
 Brennan,
 Pope,
 &
 Voges
 2007,
