In the United Kingdom, the beauty industry is a four billion pound money maker. There are over 99,000 people working in this service industry and that number is expected to increase as well. Most salons employ four stylists and there are over 35,000 salons and barbershops in business in 2007.

CBS reported in 2007 that number of visits to a beauty salon had increased by almost 4% from 2006. It was also reported that the turnover of salons had decreased by almost 7%, proving that the industry was once again experiencing an upturn in profits. However, much of this is due to higher pricing for treatments and services.It’s easy to see where beauty salons and spas are becoming more and more popular, but like most other services, the fees are increasing. However, the increased pricing does not seem to affecting the number of people that patronize their favorite salon. For many people, a visit to the salon is as a necessary as a visit to the grocery store. Some women will go weekly, but most go about once a month. It’s a far cry from the salons and services just a decade ago. The extra treatments, such as facials, massages, and tanning, are all making a positive impact on the industry. This is expected to continue throughout the next few years.
