Women will go through 100 different hairstyles and colors in a lifetime, according to a top hairdresser.

London-based Andrew Collinge’s research found that between the ages of 13 and 65, a “typical” woman would have her hair layered, shortened or colored twice a year.

She will try out three different colors — dark brown, the most popular — and at some stage has probably worn her hair long with a fringe — a style favored, at some stage in their lives, by two-thirds of women.


With their ever-changing locks, celebrities such as Victoria Beckham and Jennifer Aniston may account for some hair trends, Collinge said.

“Women have always used their hair as a way of altering their appearance as it often has the greatest impact visually,” he said.

But he added that his feeling was that women were changing their looks “little and often” rather than by making dramatic changes.

“You can add modern texture without altering the length just by adding some layers or by drying and styling differently — think Jennifer Aniston,” he added.
