ISHRS Releases Study Showing More Hair Is Still a Hot Commodity During Recession


GENEVA 9th April 2009

While lately most people are skeptical about their return on investment from stocks, some seem more inclined to invest in their locks.

According to a new online survey conducted by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS), 59.8 percent of people who were asked whether they would rather have more hair, more money or more friends chose more hair. By comparison, only 26.2 percent of respondents chose more money and 13.9 percent said they would rather have more friends. Of the 1,407 people polled, slightly more women (64.2 percent) than men (59.1 percent) indicated they wanted more hair than more money or more friends.

“This survey confirms that even during tough economic times, the desire for more hair is undeniably strong and seen by many as an investment with real dividends — both personally and professionally,” said William M. Parsley, M.D., president of the ISHRS. “These days, men and women are looking for any edge in this tight job market. Getting their hair restored can help make people more marketable to employers in looking more youthful, not to mention more confident in their overall appearance.”
