Victoria Beckham's brunette tresses are inspiring the nation

Sebastien Oebel, beauty store manager at Amazon.co.uk claims darker haired celebrities have influenced the increases, with people wanting a more natural look this year.

He said: "Last year we saw a trend for women and men dying their hair grey, resulting in an 80 per cent year-on-year uplift in sales of grey hair dye.

"This year we're going back to our roots and emulating the darker shades of well-known celebrities, such as Victoria Beckham, Emily Blunt, Jamie Dornan and Kit Harington."

Amazon reports a 90 per cent growth in the sale of wigs compared to last year, which makes sense in order to achieve a quick, dramatic makeover without making any permanent changes.

And who spends the most on haircare products? According to statistics, Southampton and Bristol buy more products than anywhere else in the UK – but DIY changes are becoming increasingly popular up and down the country, with hair products seeing a huge 430 per cent growth in sales year-on-year.
