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.
