It’s no secret that the beauty industry is a booming business with women spending approximately £300 billion per year on keeping themselves looking their best.
A country of low maintenance tomboys we most definitely are not.
According to a survey by hairtrade.com women will each spend up to £40,000 in their lifetime on cutting, colouring and styling at the hairdressers. Just to put this into context, the average amount spent on a UK house deposit is £31,000. For around the same amount, you could buy two Mini Coopers or a modern apartment in Bradford.
A woman could visit the salon six times a year for a cut and blow-dry, which would usually cost around £35 at an average salon. Add that to the £65 a woman pays to colour her hair every 10 weeks and that’s a total of £338 per year – without taking into account more exclusive spots and other hair treatments.
