Women spend almost a month and a half of their lives in the hairdressers, a new survey has found.

The poll, by money saving website PromotionalCodes.org.uk, asked women how often they visit the hairdresser, and how long they spend having their hair done.

It found that ladies spend 20 hours on average a year in the hairdresser’s chair, which equates to a massive 39 days in their lifetime.

Visits included appointments for a standard cut and blow dry, which averaged at 45 minutes, a full colour that takes two and a half hours and up do’s for special occasions such as weddings and parties, which averaged at one hour. The survey also found that women splash out just short of £600 on keeping their hair styled in one year- or a whopping £28,000 in a lifetime.

The Price of Beauty

The average British woman spends a staggering £38,400 on beauty products in a lifetime, says a new study.

The research by discount shopping site PromotionalCodes.org.uk shows just how much we are willing to pay to in order to get the perfect look.

On a daily basis, women use a range of make-up products including foundation, lipstick, blusher and mascara to the value of £85 on average. Many women also spend their money on luxury facials every month, costing around £25. With products being replaced every four months and the frequent use of facial treatments, this calculates to £640 per year and an amazing £38,400 during a lifetime.

Asked about the general pricing of make-up, 60% of women agreed that make-up is expensive but also said that this wouldn’t stop them from buying products. Over two thirds (67%) agreed that when they find a brand they like, they stick to it and do not try cheaper alternatives.

A spokesperson for PromotionalCodes.org.uk commented: "It is amazing to break down all the costs and see how much women actually spend on make-up ever year. For a lot of women, spending money on cosmetics has become second nature to them."
