According to a recent poll, the average woman spends close to $800 after a breakupâ€¦no, not on Ben & Jerryâ€™s and white wine, but on making over her appearance!
The survey found that many women deal with the painful end of a relationship by indulging in retail therapy, with shopping for a fresh wardrobe, splurging on a new hairstyle and signing up for a gym membership among the most common image-improving purchases.
Experts say that women often feel self conscious about their looks after a breakup, and a makeover can be a great way to lift their spirits- and their confidence.
Here's the breakdown from the Daily Mail
--$144 on a new hairdo.
--$62 on tanning.
--$192 on new clothes.
--$96 on new shoes.
--$76 on new make-up.
--$81 on manicures and pedicures.
--And $128 on a gym membership, boot camp, and other attempts to get into shape.
--On top of that, the average woman also spends $109 a week going out once they're single.Â And 11% immediately buy an online dating membership.
