New York Salon Habits

We surveyed female salon-goers, aged between 24 and 54, to find out more about their beauty habits and preferences. Check out the results in our stunningly-cool salon infographic below.

Did you know that 25% of women, aged between 45-54, make up to seven salon appointments a year? This is in stark contrast to younger generations with only 32% of women, aged between 25-34, visiting a salon once or twice a year.

It might surprise you to know that, the oldest demographic surveyed was likely to spend the most, with a large proportion willing to part with more than $151 per hair appointment. Overall though, most women spent an average of $60 per visit.

When it comes to beauty, 54% of the women surveyed said they visited the beautician at least once a year, while 46% stated that they don’t visit any beauty salon.

Best Facial Hair For Men

Besides women’s beauty routines, the survey let us know what style of men’s facial hair women preferred best. And from the results, it looks like hipsters can step aside and let clean-shaven men enjoy their moment in the spotlight.

However, when we looked at the demographic split, we noticed that younger women much preferred a man with a beard. Unsurprisingly, moustaches fared the worst, and were deemed the least favourable facial hair style – keep it for Movember boys!
