Women shell out 8,000 pounds on hair removal

London, Aug 25 (IANS) Hair removal is a must for every woman and women spend 8,000 pounds on it in a lifetime, reveals a new study.

The study of 3,000 women conducted by supplier of hair care and personal care appliance company Remington shows that women spend 8,000 pounds on hair removal in a lifetime. The findings also show that 88 percent of women will spend four months of their entire lifetime removing body hair with products like razors, epilators and waxing, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Women said they can spend 712 pounds to remove unwanted hair for life. A further two percent of respondents admitted they were willing to pay up to 10,000 pounds.

"Hair removal is seen as a chore, but we hear from women all the time that being fuzz free is crucial to women’s confidence. The good news is that it is no longer necessary to spend such an astronomical amount in the quest to be hair free with permanent IPL at-home solutions which offer a significant reduction in the time and money required for baby soft skin,” said Vicky Williams, marketing director at Remington.
