Revenue in the Hairdressing and Beauty Services industry has slightly declined over the past five years. However, the industry had been mostly growing until the outbreak of COVID-19. The industry's solid performance over the same period went against broader economic trends, such as a decline in discretionary income and mostly negative consumer sentiment.

This includes an anticipated decline of 15.4% in the current year due to negative consumer sentiment, declining disposable incomes and reduced shopping activity as a result of the outbreak of COVID-19.

Furthermore, persistent consumer demand for the latest fashion-forward styles and rising disposable incomes are forecast to drive sales in new and existing stores across the industry over the five years through
