Nationally 37.8% 62.2%
Male 43.6% 56.4%
Female 23.8% 76.2%

National Prediction Accuracy: 47.4% (Interesting… most people guessed wrong.)

Almost twice as many guys as girls go to the barber more frequently than every two months. The last time I visited my barber, we were talking about how much the average visit to the barber costs guys versus how much the average visit to the beauty salon costs women next door. I was shocked to discover that I spend in a year what many women spend in one visit to the stylist at a salon. And I spend significantly less time per visit, too.
