Women may have to pay considerably more at £31, however this is still more than £10 less than the national average.

He said their figures showed that British women in particular do, with the average woman spending a £751 each year looking after their hair, almost twice the amount spent by men.

For Londoners in particular, hair care can be expensive, with the average haircut setting men back £31 in the capital. London is followed by Glasgow and Manchester as the most expensive city for men’s haircuts, with both cities charging £24 on average.

London was found to be the most expensive city for female haircare too, with the average woman forking out £66 for a new trim.

Those in Manchester and Liverpool were also guilty of paying over the odds to have their hair cut, with the average prices in these cities being £53 and £51 respectively.

He added that the difference between the sexes also ran to hair care too.

Women with longer locks wash their hair on average four times a week, forking out £58.24 on shampoo and conditioner yearly.

This is in stark contrast to men who wash their hair three times a week, who spend as little as £9.36 on these hair care products.
