Debenham's say that the treatments at the top of women's lists are spray tans, manicures, pedicures, waxing and eyebrow tinting. Spray tans are number one of the list, with women not being able to even get a slight glow before their break because of the terrible British weather we've had so far. The average cost of these treatments is almost double the cost of a seven night trip to the Costa Del Sol. Women may be prepared to cut back to get a bargain holiday, but won't compromise on their beauty preparations before the holiday. With preparations starting around 3 weeks before their trip, and taking up to 11 hours in total, the pre-holiday regime is anything but a last minute rush. Sara Stern from Debenhams said that “looking good on holiday involves a lot more than finding that perfect bikini”.
