Does anyone else feel like they spend a small fortune on their hair every year? Well, that’s because many of us are. Further confirming our suspicions, we recently came across a survey conducted by Advanced Dermatology in 2022 of over 1,000 Americans on their annual grooming costs—and get this, the average spend came out to $877 for women (and $592 for men). Though the survey includes other beauty maintenance costs like skincare, makeup and even gym memberships, topping the list were hair products, haircuts and color.
Ever curious about the spending habits of others, we polled our friends and colleagues to get a sense of how much they shell out each year on their hair. The overall consensus? It costs a pretty penny...but it’s a worthy investment considering the way it makes them look and feel.
