by charlottegw / last updated June 16, 2021


A new hair report has revealed the UK’s spending habits, where they’re spending the most and just how much hairdressing searches have increased.

New data from Dojo, a UK-based payment provider, analysed the most asked questions on Google to reveal the most in-demand queries post-lockdown, and where the most amount of money was being spent in the UK when it came to beauty services.

The study also analysed Dojo’s own data to find out how much was spent and which UK cities spent the most.

The results!

Nail salons saw a 474% increase in searches, whilst hair saw a 357% increase and beauty 107%.

Type of store Question February 2021 search volume March 2021 search volume % increase in search difference

Hairdressers When do hairdressers open? 35,520 162,540 +357%
Beauty When do beauty salons open? 10,520 21,810 +107%

The data found that Brits couldn’t wait to sit back and have their hair restyled after salons reopened in April. Whether opting for a full colour or just popping in for a cut, it was found that hairdressers had a +357% increase in searches when it came to the reopening of hair salons.

Nail salons (+474% search increases) and beauty salons (107%) also saw a huge increase in searches when they reopened.
