How frequently do Brits cut their hair?
Last week, London Mayor Boris Johnson gently poked fun at David Cameron and his Cabinet colleagues’ haircuts by comparing the Prime Minister’s hair to a ‘broom’, Chancellor George Osborne’s to a ‘dustpan’, and Education Secretary Michael Gove’s haircut to a ‘jay-cloth’ during his speech at the Conservative conference.

How often do Brits cut their hair?
The largest proportion (36%) of the British public said they pay a visit to their hairdresser once every two months. 21% of Brits cut their hair once a month, while a small percentage (4%) said they need a haircut two or three times a month.
Only a small proportion (4%) of the public never get their hair cut, while an even smaller percentage (1%) cut their hair as often as once a week or more.

When it comes to choosing a hairdresser, it would seem Brits are a loyal people. A majority (69%) of the public always get their hair cut by the same person, while only 29% get their haircuts from different hairdressers.
