Study shows that Hair styling professionals and Personal Trainers are the most sought after professionals in Leeds.
The analysis of their 2017 first quarterly statistics unveiled recently by StarOfService, a study that also took into account data collected from past quarters, shows that Leeds is registering a staggering growth in the market’s demand for a particular group of service professionals within Hair Styling and Personal Training industries.
The study also reveals that Hair Stylists, Make-up Artists and Personal Trainers professionals have had an impressive average 10% growth in market requests, week over week, since April.
If you think about it, it is not an unfamiliar scenario to take a walk down the park and finding someone exercising or running there, isn’t it? One of the hottest trends in fitness these days is training with your personal trainer outdoors. And when the weather is good, chances are that even more people will be focusing on getting their healthy dose of fresh air and exercise.
In fact, research has shown that moderate exposure to sunlight increases your mood and boosts your Vitamin D intake. The data gathered from StarOfService’s community users, for 2017, and previous years, goes to corroborate this reality, being Personal Trainers the number #3 most requested professionals in Leeds these days.
The number one requested Professionals in the city, Hair Stylists, are also in for a busy season, being the next months traditionally the most sought after for wedding ceremonies.
«This year’s trend goes along with what we observed in previous years. There are certain service categories that benefit greatly from seasonality, and that have an exponential and consistent growth during specific months of the year. What we see happening in Leeds can also be observed in other main cities in the UK, like London, Glasgow or Sheffield.
This is the season of hot summer weather, the season of outdoor parties, vacations, and weddings. Everyone is paying more attention to looking great, being fit and enjoying themselves. So it makes total sense that Hair Stylists and Personal Trainers professionals have their hands full with clients these days», says Monica Zamfir, StarOfService’s International Director.
