2008-05-28T06:41:36.288-07:00

On average, women spend about 45 minutes a day on grooming habits, which includes washing, dressing and hair care. Men spend about 30 minutes, according to the American Time Use Survey from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

With the advent of a seemingly endless supply of hair products, Americans — especially American women — have taken control of their locks.If you have curly hair, no worries; with a flat iron and some time, it can be straight. If your hair is straight, break out the curling iron or get a perm.Need a little shimmer, try this product.Want a little kink to the hair, well, there’s a tool for that, too.

Even with a 2-month-old baby, one individual admits that she still puts in about 30 to 40 minutes to fix her hair each day. She starts by blow drying and then back-combs the top. After that, she flat irons. “I use a lot of hair spray,” she said.

For women who think 10 minutes is too much time to spend on hair, the future may be bleak. That’s because the “big,” high-maintenance hair of the ’80s is coming back.

Headlines Academy cosmetology school reports that the back-combed look is making a healthy comeback. Even the permanent is rearing its head again. assure low-maintenance lovers that they need not worry.

The increase in tools and hair products has made it easier to get the high-maintenance look without the high-maintenance timetable. So even if you want it big, you can still get it done in a shorter time frame, the school says.
