British Study Reveals the Most Popular Hairdresser’s Car in Real Life

And no, despite what you may have heard or read, the Audi TT ain’t the most popular car among hairdressers – or at least not in Britain. According to a new study made available today by UK women’s car insurance specialist Diamond, that title goes to…*drums please*…the one and only, MINI One hatchback. In fact, the BMW Group’s MINI brand had two vehicles in the top five positions.

The UK insurance firm came to this conclusion after looking at data from over 18,000 hairdressers in Britain. The company said the MINI One is three and a half times more likely to be driven by someone working as a hairdresser than everyone else.

Next up on the list are the Vauxhall Tigra, a Fiesta-sized hardtop-convertible from GM’s European arm and Volkswagen’s New Beetle (the outgoing model), both of which are said to be more than three times as popular with hairdressers than the rest of the UK. The fourth and fifth place finishers of the study are the Ford Ka and Mini Cooper.

“It’s not surprising that the Mini One is so popular amongst hairdressers, as it’s stylish, modern and looks great,” said Diamond managing director, Elwyn Gedrych. “In fact, with two Mini models in the top 5, that certainly cements its place as the ultimate ‘hairdresser’s car’.”

One more finding from the study is that British hairdressers are 33 percent more likely to drive a convertible model than drivers from other professions.

So there you have it. The Mini One is officially the real hairdresser’s car. Have your say in the comments below.
