MEN are spending thousands of dollars to look like a million bucks. In Australia, men buy 10 times more grooming products than 20 years ago.


Market research organisation IBISWorld has predicted Australian men will spend $48.4 million on cosmetics during the 2009/10 financial year compared to $5 million in 1999/2000. They are also expected to spend $1.04 billion on having their hair done and day spa treatments.

In the early 1990s, 12 per cent of the hairdressing and beauty industry’s clientele were men, but now they make up 33 per cent, with that figure expected to increase to 38 per cent by 2014/15.

IBISWorld general manager Robert Bryant said increasing numbers of women in the workplace had encouraged many men to smarten up their appearance.

“In a male-dominated environment, there is little pressure for men to dress up to impress their colleagues, however as the number of women in the workplace increases, so too does the focus on fashion and overall presentation,” he said. Metrosexual celebrities like soccer star David Beckham, who has worn nail polish and a variety of hairstyles such as braids, have also had an influence, he said.

Elysian Hair and Day Spa owner Jack Paitaridis yesterday said men made up about 40 per cent of his Torrensville salon’s clientele and many favoured treatments such as facials and hot stone massages.

“Men want to look good and have an understanding of the benefits they get from the treatments in terms of their appearance and well being,” he said.

Elysian client Billy Neely, 30, said he spent between $100 and $150 on grooming per month because being well presented was essential for his work as a fitness coach at EFM Health Clubs Wayville.

“I have been having facials and massages every six to eight weeks for about a year,” he said. “It’s more socially acceptable now for men because we want to look after ourselves for the long term.”

Atlanta, GA (October 19, 2009) – Whiter Image, a leader in the $14 billion teeth whitening industry, has expanded its international presence to now include South Africa.  The initiative will expand its international relationships and will involve strong growth within several industry sectors including spas, salons, dentists, retail chain groups, and independent whitening facilities.

The products debuted at the Professional Beauty Show in Johannesburg in late September 2009.  “[The response] has been very positive…every salon we have approached has come on board.  To make it easier for the salons to start, we have introduced a rental program for the lights.  This has been very well received,” says Tony who is the Managing Director of the new division.

The expansion into South Africa is an exciting step for Whiter Image.  With strong success in the United States and Canada along with several other countries in Europe and South America, this is the first step for the company in Africa.  Brad Stevens, one of Whiter Image’s Founding Partners said “We are very pleased with the business intelligence and strategy outlined by our new relationships in South Africa. The team has a strong record of success in related industries, but most importantly they have shown an extremely proactive approach towards capturing market share with diversification in mind.”

“What I did not realize was how popular and important the whitening pens would prove to be. Everyone that we have shown them to and has used them absolutely loves them. It is a great way to get a foot in the door with the salons. Once they have taken the Pen Starter Pack and you start showing them the potential and how much money they can make in their teeth whitening business, they eventually end up purchasing the light, stock and all the other promotional material that they need,” said Tony.

The success in South Africa comes even during one of the country’s worst economic periods in a long time.  Like the United States, South Africa is in the midst of a recession.  Whiter Image’s approach in South Africa has been one of perseverance and optimism.

“The economy is very tough at the moment. Most salons have really struggled to keep their heads above water. It has been one of the toughest winters ever. With summer now approaching and consumer confidence improving we expect to do great business in the months to come. Also next year South Africa hosts the 2010 Soccer World Cup so the salons should coin it with all the tourists coming to be pampered during their stay,” says Tony.

Gift Pack 02“We have also taken a lot of creative steps to uniquely merchandise the products as well including the use of an innovative, clear display bag that doubles as a wine carrier.  The pens specifically have an additional benefit of instantly wiping off the crimson film to have your brightest night after a dinner with your favorite Merlot,” Tony commented.

Whiter Image is excited about the success in South Africa.  The opportunities are growing each day, and the company is looking for new ways to continue growth in the country.  Whiter Image will also be showing at the Professional Beauty Show in Cape Town in March 2010, Durban in April 2010, and Johannesburg in August 2010.
