Beauty Treatments: Necessity or a Treat?

Visiting a beauty salon has become a regular event for many women in recent years, more of a necessity than a treat.

According to a Mintel research, over the past ten years, the amount spent on trips to hairdressers and salons has increased by more than 50 per cent, with an estimated £13 billion spent each year on cuts, colours, waxes, manicures, facials and massages.

British women spend an average of £133,575 on their appearance over their lifetimes. Women spend the most, £717 annually, on staying in shape with massages and other body treatments. Hair care is the second biggest expense, with £405 a year. More than half of women - 56 per cent - said they were more bothered about their faces looking good than their bodies spending £289 annually on facial treatments including Botox and cosmetics.

On average 50 beauty salons, training schools or self-employed therapists are setting up every month, a rise of 7 per cent on the previous quarter.

According to a new survey, 69% of the total female respondents frequented nail salons as well as hair salons. Forty percent of women who frequent nail salons visit at least twice a month, some as often as five or more times per month. Forty-eight percent of men frequent hair salons 6-10 times annually and fully 26% visit more than 10 times each year.

Anyone, ranging from school leavers to women going back to work after raising a family or people seeking a career change can enroll into beauty therapy courses.

There are numerous locations across the UK offering both general and specific courses, such as makeup courses, massage courses and nail training.

Beauty training courses ensure that only qualified people enter the beauty industry which is now estimated to be worth £155 billion globally.
