Beauty salons

The number of independent beauty salons is set to increase by 7,852 outlets in the next five years, the highest level of any business sector on the high street, according to research by Global Data and American Express. As a result, there will be 56,484 independent beauty and hair outlets across the nation by 2023.

The growth is being driven by the rise in the amount consumers are willing to spend on their appearance, with the data revealing that the nation spends £7.62 billion on independent beauty services. Millennials (22–36 year olds) are driving the increase in consumer spending, accounting for more than a quarter of all spending in beauty and hair salons and barbers, with an average spend of £281 beautifying themselves every year.

Within the hair and beauty retail sector as a whole, the research found that beauty salons, which included brow bars, waxing salons and massage, as well as nail bars, are predicted to experience the greatest growth in terms of numbers of outlets, with 2,810 more on British high streets by 2023.

“Independent retail entrepreneurs were early to spot the opportunity to offer a range of beauty services to consumers, from waxing and weaving to braiding and beard trimming,” said Caroline Bouvet, vice president at American Express.

“The beauty economy is a growing part of our high street and demonstrates how quick independent retailers are to adapt to shifting demands from consumers. With our passion for grooming booming, we hope everyone will remember their local independents by shopping small this Small Business Saturday and beyond.”

Smile with a free teeth whitening makeover from Church Road Dental

Smile confidently with a *free* teeth whitening makeover

Welwyn Garden City’s Church Road Dental are giving our lucky readers the chance to win a dazzling free teeth whitening makeover worth over £400.

What is tooth whitening ?

Tooth whitening can be a very effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface. It cannot make a complete colour change, but it may lighten the existing shade.

Deep Bleaching works by increasing the tooth’s permeability to oxygen which breaks down stain molecules. It is a combination treatment meaning that there is a 2 week home treatment followed by 1 hour visit at the dentist (optional).

Teeth are stained by the foods and drinks we consume. Smoking further stains teeth and the natural bright, white shade becomes darkened. Teeth whitening is a successful and simple method of lightening the colour of your teeth. The degree of whiteness achieved will vary from patient to patient and with the type of bleaching process chosen.

What are the benefits tooth whitening ?

One of the benefits of tooth whitened is an improvement in general self esteem, making us happier and more content.

Over time our teeth may become discoloured by certain foods that we eat, drinking coffee or red wine, smoking, and how well we brush and floss. Whitening can help by producing a younger looking effect. If we’re not embarrassed by or conscious of our teeth, we smile naturally and confidently. Smiling has been shown to improve mood by triggering the production of endorphins.

Dental professionals have noticed that patients who’ve had their teeth whitened tend to show an improvement in their oral health care routine. Experiencing the advantages of whiter teeth often leads us to take good care when brushing, flossing, and seeing our dentist for professional cleanings. Since good oral health can improve your overall health and prevent many diseases, this is by far the most important reason to consider teeth whitening.

How do I enter the competition ?

For a chance to win, follow or like Church Road Dental on Instgram or Facebook. Then share their teeth whitening post and tag TWO friends. More information is available upon request from Church Road Dental.

The Future of Beauty? The Beauty Hall from Next

Fashion retailer Next have announced they will be opening a new beauty store in the former Debenhams units in intu Watford and intu Milton Keynes.

Called ‘The Beauty Hall from Next’, the new concept store will open in units formerly occupied by Debenhams in both intu Watford and intu Milton Keynes. Next currently sells more than 200 beauty brands, including Estée Lauder, Clinique, Benefit, Elemis, Burberry, By Terry, Rituals, on its website, Next.co.uk, and additionally premium brands such as Bobbi Brown, YSL, Lancôme and Nars on sister site Fabled.com, which it bought from Ocado last year.

Many retailers are looking at ways to enter the lucrative beauty industry which is estimated to be £30 billion this year alone. The recent lockdown saw a rise in the demand for beauty products as beauticians and make-up artists downed tools.

Next already had plans to launch the new concept stores in five former Debenhams locations: the Bullring in Birmingham, The Oracle in Reading, Highcross in Leicester, Silverburn in Glasgow and Centrale in Croydon.
