Survey reveals a haircut boots mens’ confidence

The results of a study into modern day grooming and the affect it has on mens’ wellbeing reveals 81% of men feel most confident in the two-week period after a haircut. Having said that, the survey from Wahl, conducted by YouGov, also shows that regardless 70% of men still leave it over a month between hair and beard trims. This means that up to half of some mens’ life is spent feeling less positive than he could do, all while a simple solution is close to hand. 

In a world that is dominated by looking and feeling good, from the positivity of Queer Eye to the constant drive for perfection on Instagram, this lack of confidence can have a huge impact on a man’s life, especially in social and work situations. The survey also found that…

  • A third of men (32%) claim that a fresh cut gives them the confidence to deal with challenging work situations
  • 84% of men feel negative when they go out without a fresh cut and/or beard trim

What are you waiting for? Get out there and show them that their barber knows best.
