Thinking of Changing Your Hair? Let Us Guide You

beauty salonsIt’s no secret that we all want to look our best. For many women, having great hair is important. It’s one of the first things people notice when they see you. It’s how many women choose to express themselves with different styles and colors. For these reasons, it’s no wonder the beauty industry is so profitable.

Researchers found that 25% of women change the shade of their hair at least five times while most experiment with three different colors over a period of years. With more than 210,000 beauty salons in the U.S. alone, finding the right salon for you can be nothing short of stressful. Finding hair salons that are staffed with professionals to complete the look you desire can be difficult for many reasons. Not only must a stylist be able to style your hair, but they must connect with you enough to establish a strong relationship. The stylist must also be able to work with your hair’s texture as not all stylists have experience with different hair types. Luckily, there are plenty of beauty salons in Indianapolis that cater to all hair types.

Every woman has her own reason for switching up her look. For some, a new hair style or color can make them feel more confident. A recent study shows that 44% of women were bored and decided to change their style while 25% did it to “reinvent” themselves. Just about a third stated changing their look as a result of a breakup or divorce. Events like weddings are also popular reasons women find themselves in Indianapolis hair salons and all over the country.

Trends in the beauty industry also motivate many women to visit their local beauty salons. One popular trend among women is the Brazilian blowout. Not every salon offers this service as it is very particular and uses non-traditional techniques for straightening hair. Nevertheless, you can be sure to find some of the best salons for a Brazilian blowout Indianapolis has to offer.

Whether you’re bored of your current look, getting over a recent breakup or preparing for upcoming nuptials, Indianapolis is full of hair salons to fit your needs. The first step is booking an appointment.

Top Reasons Women Are Going to the Salon — You Might Be Surprised By a Few of Them!

Top Reasons Women Are Going to the Salon — You Might Be Surprised By a Few of Them!

indianapolis hair salonsIndianapolis hair salons, and indeed hair salons all over the country, see women come in for all sorts of reasons. What motivating factors are driving women to visit their salon? Below are some of the most cited reasons why the ladies are having cosmetic work done. Note that these trends account for more than just Indianapolis hair salons, and encompass survey responses from all over the country. When finding a makeup artist, Indianapolis residents can typically expect similar answers.

  • Beauty salons report that 58% of women surveyed admitted they were planning on changing their hairstyle in the near future as a matter of regularity. In other words — because it’s overdue!
  • Around 56% of women claimed they prefer to seek the advice of their hairdresser or cosmetologist about an idea they have pertaining to their appearance.
  • One of the most interesting reasons on the list is this — 44% of women changed their hairstyle or color at least once in their lives out of sheer boredom.
  • Reinventing oneself was found to be a popular motivator, as over 25% of women surveyed claimed that this was something that brought them into the salon at least once in their lives.
  • 50% of surveyed women who visit salons will go at least once per month for regular upkeep on their looks. The amount of money spent on services and treatments increased 14% or so when this trend first started to really catch on around 2007. Compare this to Spanish women, where the typical cost of a visit to the spa or salon is close to $200 a pop.
  • Also in 2007, the amount of facials, massages, and manicures and pedicures increased by 50%, 38%, and 28% respectively, making them huge favorites for the ladies.
  • About 38% of surveyed women claimed that they wanted to feel more confident about their appearance and feel more attractive to the opposite sex.

Whatever the reason, women love going to the salon. Whether it’s to feel more confident, reinvent themselves, or simply because they’re bored, there’s always time for a trip to the salon. Beauty salons in Indianapolis won’t judge you for stopping by out of boredom! Feel free to share your reasons for visiting yourself!

Women and Their Hairstyles – By the Numbers!

Women and Their Hairstyles – By the Numbers!

beauty salonsThe ladies in our lives like to have fun with their hair. It’s just a matter of fact. From frequent style changes to color changes to all out transformations, women are notorious for taking great care of their hair and wearing beautiful, vibrant hair styles.

Recent studies seek to understand what makes some women want to change their hairstyles so often. As it turns out, there really isn’t one solid reason for it. There are a ton of them.

Below are some fast facts on the subject. Keep in mind that multiple women were asked multiple questions, so these percentages are not necessarily going to add up to a total of 100%, but rather reflect how many women gave a certain answer out of the total amount. So, by the numbers, what are women’s biggest reasons for heading to the beauty salons in droves? The results of the Makeup Artist Indianapolis survey are below.

  1. 61% of women stated that they have, at least once, changed their hairstyle simple because they felt it was time for a change.
  2. 25% of women stated that they have changed their hairstyle in order to reinvent their look.
  3. 38% of women changed their hairstyle at some point in order to feel more confident in their appearance.
  4. 44% of women have changed their hairstyle at least once purely because they were bored.
  5. Around 75% of women claim that they have regretted one of their hairstyles.
  6. 58% of these women said that they were planning on changing their hair color or style in the near future.
  7. 69% of women have claimed that they feel more attractive after having a style change.

Some of those numbers may seem a little shocking. The statistic about how many women have altered their hairstyle based on boredom alone may be a particularly shocking realization for many. It’s true though!

If you are in the Indianapolis area or have spent your fair share of time inside of Indianapolis hair salons, these statistics are probably a little less harrowing. Beauty salons in Indianapolis are particularly busy most of the time — the ladies there love their hair styles!
