Best dressed: The ageing population has boosted demand for hair colouring and treatment

Population growth, particularly in the female demographic, is a key factor driving the performance of the Hairdressing and Barber Franchises industry. Industry revenue is expected to grow at an annualised 1.4% over the five years through 2017-18, to reach $323.3 million. Because most people consider haircuts necessary, demand for these services provides the industry with a constant, underlying revenue stream.Variable economic conditions over the past five years have caused some consumers to postpone the use of hairdressing services, and increase the time between haircuts. Additional services such as colouring, treatments and styling are typically discretionary in nature and are therefore more sensitive to movements in household income and consumer more.
