That’s an average of £144 per household
According to Barclays, Brits have saved around £4.2 billion during the pandemic by giving themselves DIY hairdos in-between hairdressers’ doors being open.
After the UK has imposed the COVID-19 restrictions, over 24 million Brits spent money buying hairdressing equipment so they could give their own and family members’ haircut.
On average, those who bought specialist tools spent £41 which would seem well worth it as 53% surprised themselves with how well they were able to do their own hair.
As a result, 47% of Brits decided they will continue to do DIY touch ups in-between visiting a professional.
However, there’s no surprise that almost half of them say that a trip to the salon or barbers is one of the first things they’re going to be spending their money on again when they can. Indeed, 58% hope to get an appointment within the first two weeks of hairdressers re-opening.
