The beauty services market encompasses three key service segments: hair, skin (including injectable products, makeup, tanning and waxing) and nails, as well as beauty products sold in salons. Beauty salons offer cosmetic treatments for both women and men. The industry includes several sub-segments, such as hairdressers, nail salons, and skin care treatments. Many salons position themselves as a full service and offer a wide range of services including hairdressing, manicures, waxing, tanning and skin care.
Globally, the industry is strong and is only getting stronger. People between the ages of 34 and 45 tend to spend more on beauty services such as hairdressing, skin care and nail care. While the inherent (and false) implication of the beauty industry is that it takes something more to be beautiful, women are arguably just as responsible for focusing on beauty.
