Tigra shows its stripes as ultimate 'hairdresser's car'


The term 'hairdresser's car' has long been coined to describe sporty little
run-arounds, but is this really the case? Women's car insurance specialist Diamond decided to find out what hairdressers really drive and can reveal that the most popular, and therefore ultimate 'hairdresser's car', is the Vauxhall Tigra.

Diamond looked at data from over 12,500 hairdressers to create a definitive list of the most popular cars amongst Britain's hairdressers. The Tigra is four times more likely to be driven by a hairdresser than everyone else. The next most popular for hairdressers are the Volkswagen Beetle, and Ford Ka, which are both more than two and a half times more popular with hairdressers. Rounding out the top five are the Mini One and Peugeot 106.

Commenting on the findings, Diamond managing director, Sian Lewis said, "It's not surprising that the Tigra is so popular amongst hairdressers, as it's stylish, modern, and the metal folding roof allows them to show off their latest cut!"

"However, look out for ‘hairdresser's cars' on the roads as hairdressers have a poorer accident record than non-hairdressers. In fact, according to Diamond's data they are 18% more likely to have an accident."

The list of ultimate ‘hairdresser's cars' is as follows:

  1. Vauxhall Tigra
  2. Volkswagen Beetle
  3. Ford Ka
  4. Mini One
  5. Peugeot 106
