Beauty salon treatments are becoming ever more popular
All around the world nail salons are opening more a more, and they are becoming increasingly popular. It tends to be that women are the vast majority of the clients for these establishments, however in recent years men have been seeking out manicures and pedicures more. It is also the case that women who once saw these treatments as a luxury, are now seeing them something that they can regularly pursue.
According tothe National Hairdressers Federation, 93% of the 40,000 hair and beauty businesses in the UK are micro-businesses, employing less than 10 people, although two thirds are even smaller, employing less than 5 people. As small businesses, 94% generate less than £250,000 in turnover and most turn over less than £100,000 – yet together they contribute a massive £7bn to the UK economy and are the backbone of many high streets. Indeed, hairdressing businesses are the 5th most popular independent start-up businesses and beauty salons are the 8th most popular.
Having nails treated in these establishments are not the only part of the body that has been receiving a great deal more attention in recent years. Another part of the body which is seen as very important to look after is the teeth. Having white teeth is very attractive, and for this reason, many people are choosing to have their teeth whitened, and more so in recent years. Having a bright smile is something that is very much coveted, and it is very easy to do at your dentist.
Hairstyles have always been very popular, and hair salons are now offering increasing advice on how to change your style to give yourself a completely new look. Things such as hair extensions, especially those made with real hair, have become increasingly popular in recent years, and can create a dramatic change in look very quickly.
Another treatment to do with hair is laser hair removal. This is something of a painful process, that is rather expensive, but it is very convenient for women, as it means they won’t have to shave some parts of the body as regularly as before. This sort of treatment has become increasingly popular in recent years.
