Spa, Salon and In-Store Treatments - UK - September 2015

“The beauty treatment markets enjoyed strong growth in recent years, boosted by new destinations and growing interest; however sales were impacted by cheaper pop-up locations and at-home devices in 2014. Encouraging an older demographic to visit spas and salons with a health positioning, as well as tempting clients with high-tech treatments, present opportunities for sales growth.”
– Charlotte Libby, Senior Beauty Analyst
