An average woman spends more than an hour getting ready for a routine night out, with eight per cent taking more than two hours to get ready, a British survey has revealed.
The getting ready procedure generally involves 15 minutes in the bath or shower, 21 minutes doing her hair, 17 minutes trying on outfits and 12 minutes applying make-up. The survey also found that merely planning a night out will have involved four phone calls totalling around 55 minutes.
According to the survey by Table Table, a restaurant and pub website, the average night out is likely to involve four or five friends who go out at about 8.05pm. The study found that once out and about, women will spend a further 29 minutes fixing their hair and make-up in the lavatory of the venue. However when it comes to big occasions like Christmas parties the time spent getting ready can be significantly longer.
So if you are going to spend as much time as that then you better make sure that the time is spent productively and you are getting the best possible results. Galway women will have the opportunity to have their Christmas party make-up look carried out by a high profile television and film make-up expert this week when the well-known Ann Hutton visits the new Lancome department at University Late Night Pharmacy.
