Tan Craze: Men Are More Self-Conscious Than Women. See for Yourself!

Published March 5th, 2019 - 06:04 GMT

It's a beauty treatment you might expect many women to book up before a big night out.

But image-conscious men are almost twice as likely as women to get a spray tan before an evening out, according to a new study.

The survey found that 21 per cent of men usually get an instant tan ahead of a big night, while only 12 per cent of women would do the same.

Men are also more likely to get their hair styled before a night out, with 42 per cent visiting the hairdresser, while only 28 per cent of women do.


Women, however, are more likely to buy a new outfit for a night out, with 37 per cent trawling the shops, compared to 22 per cent of men.

Worryingly, the study found that 70 per cent of men and 60 per cent of women feel social media pressure to spend more than they can afford on clothes and smart cars.

The study, by banking app U Account, revealed that those aged 25 to 34 spend the most on luxuries – an average of £400 a month – with 18 to 24s spending £280 a month and 35 to 45s £190.
