Women Spend Less Time Grooming on Fridays

Do You Do Less as the Week Goes On?

A new study by retail chain Debenhams has found that British women spend more time getting ready on Mondays than they do on Fridays. "Getting ready," as defined by the study, includes choosing clothes, showering, applying makeup, and doing hair. On average, women spend 76 minutes primping at the beginning of the week, and by Friday it's down to just 19.

Men cut down their grooming time even faster. On Mondays, they take 28 minutes; by Tuesday they've whittled their routine down to 14 minutes, and the rest of the week stays steady at 11 minutes. Does this sound right to you, calendar girl, or are you consistent day after day?

Psst! Like the calendar? It's free as iPhone and desktop wallpaper.

Oh this is so true. Thank God Fridays at my job are casual. Throw on a pair of jeans and hair in a pony tail and I'm set.

I'm consistent, except for Mondays. On Monday, I have to get my daughter ready for daycare and drop her off. We wake up three hours before I have to be on air at work, and I usually STILL come sliding in right at the buzzer! :O Most days, I take about 45 minutes to get ready.
