Barber: average visit frequency in the United Kingdom (UK) 2017

UK men pay a visit to the barber shop as often as every two and a half weeks when they feel like they need a cut throat shave. Or if it is a more elaborate treatment like restyling their hair, the time between two barber visits extends to every 5.8 weeks.  

Cut throat shave: frequent and expensive

  The most sought-for treatment for men in barber shops was by no means the cheapest. In 2017, the average price for a cut throat shave in the UK was considerably higher than other barber shop services such as a wet cut and wet shave. While a hot towel shave was the most expensive treatment, a quick beard trim cost as low as 5 British pounds.   

The more niche, the costlier

  In the United Kingdom, prices at barbers and beauty salons went down over the years. In 2017, men were charged an average of 14 British pounds for a haircut, which was slightly higher back in 2012, for instance. Similarly, hair colouring got considerably cheaper over the same period of time. It is now a less costly service for men than it was in 2012. Compared to female hair salons and beauty establishments, prices for men were more reasonable, although some treatments such as manicure/pedicure and hair removal cost more for men.
