The average woman in the UK is now spending an incredible £1,012 every year on hair and beauty treatments.* It appears that despite the tough economic climate the industry has remained resilient, with women in particular refusing to tighten the purse strings when it comes to their regular beauty treatments.
Treatments such as eyebrow waxing, facials and manicures are now seen as an essential part of our beauty regime, whereas just a decade ago such activities where considered a rather decadent hobby saved for the wealthy.
The rise of ‘celebrity-ism’ could be responsible for the industry’s continuing success with our social media feeds plagued with pictures of our idols sporting their latest hair styles, perfect pouts and luscious lashes. We all want a slice of the beautiful action with teen girls trying to look older and the rest of us …well trying to look younger! Male grooming is also proving big business with a fifth of salon customers reported to be men.
A whole host of weird and wonderful treatments are now available to the masses with more and more specialist salons popping up on our high street. According to a recent report, 29,415 businesses currently operate within the aesthetics industry with almost 140,000 people employed to help us look our best!**
