How much time do you spend styling hair?

Styling Hair

This article claims you spend 41 minutes on styling hair each day

This article is one of those that I have to do a reality check, most often the conclusion is . . . “I don’t think so”.“Styling Hair-I’m hard pressed to get anywhere near that number.”

I know, I know, this is a British study, but I’ve been in the UK and the lifestyle isn’t that dissimilar to ours, especially in the area of styling hair. I don’t know where these people come up with these kinds of numbers. I sometimes think they start out with a goal that the survey must prove, then they only include in the study those that prove their theory and disqualify the others. That’s the only way that I figure they could come up with these kind of numbers. In my business experience and circle of friends and acquaintances, I don’t know a handful of woman who would average 41 minutes, day in and day out, 365 days a year, to wrestle with styling hair into submission.

In almost every class I teach on, “Finding the Right Hairstyle For You,” the students get asked the question, “What is the average amount of time you spend/and are willing to spend, on styling hair in the morning?” I find the average time spent in coercion of hair in the morning comes in between 10 to 15 minutes a day. And for those who are spending more than 15 minutes . . . their goal is to do what is necessary in order to cut that time down.

Am I wrong? Post a comment on this one, how much time do you think you spend each day styling hair.

Women spend two-and-a-half years on styling hair

Talk about going back to your roots…

The average British woman spends an astonishing 36,903.75 on her hair in a lifetime, according to new research.

She will spend the equivalent of just under two YEARS of her life washing, styling hair, cutting, colouring, crimping and straightening her locks in salons or at home.

A whopping 650 days will be dedicated solely to creating a ‘salon look’ in her own bathroom. The average woman splashes out a monthly average of 10.08 on shampoos and conditioners, 14.03 on home styling products and 301.14 a year on haircuts and colouring.

She spends the equivalent of 41 minutes at home every day washing, styling hair and restyling. A third of women say their hair is the most important part of their appearance, and they spend more time styling hair than doing their make-up.

The poll of 2,500 women was conducted by Boots in conjunction with the launch of the UK’s first ever home lotion-based straighten kit.
