The Best European City for Cosmetics Lovers Revealed

According to Cosmetic, Toiletry and Perfumery Association Ltd. (CTPA), Europe is the largest cosmetics market in the world, valued at approximately EUR76,7 billion. With this in mind, Longevitahairtransplant.com wanted to find out exactly which city is the best place for beauty lovers.

To do so, they created a ranking of European cities based on the average rating for beauty services and the number of shops compared to the population to determine for once and for all which city is the most glam.

The top 10 cities in first place with an impressive score of 9.65/10 is Düsseldorf, Germany. This city in the west of the country is known for its fashion, but also boasts 48 hairdressers per 100,000 people.

Tied for second place are Paris (France) and Zaragoza (Spain). Both cities missed out on first place by just 0.5 points. Whilst Zaragoza has higher average ratings for waxing, nails, and hair, Paris has more hairdressers and beauty shops per 100,00 people. Making both great choices for those looking to pamper themselves.

In third place is a tie between Helsinki, (Finland) and Berlin (Germany) both with a score of 9.38. Of all the cities in the study, Helsinki may be the place to be if you need an appointment fast. Helsinki has the highest number of both hairdressers (76) and beauty shops (34) per 100,00 people, meaning that getting an appointment should be no problem.

Moving onto the worst cities to get glam in, at the very bottom of the study is Bristol in the UK, with a tiny score of just 1.61/10. With only four hairdressers per 100,000 people, those looking to top up their roots may find themselves with an unwanted ombre in between appointments. Just above Bristol with a score of 1.77/10 is Liverpool, UK. Whilst the city may be well known for its nightlife, those wanting beauty treatments ahead of an outing will have to plan far in advance to get a spot in the one beauty shop per 100,00 people. Third from the bottom is Brussels, Belgium with a score of 1.99/10. This city has only two beauty shops per 100,000 people and just one cosmetics shop.
