So I’ve always spent ages getting ready in the morning, mainly doing my hair, but now research actually shows that it is true.
On average men spend 81 minutes a day on personal grooming, including cleansing, toning and moisturising, shaving, styling hair and choosing clothes, the study found.
Women have their beauty regime down to a fine art and get hair, clothes and make-up done in just 75 minutes.
The research, carried out for Travelodge (Oh by the way Travelodge is a great cheap hotel chain throughout the UK), found that on an average morning men spend 23 minutes in the shower, compared to 22 minutes for women.
Choosing an outfit is also a time-consuming operation for men who want to look their best – taking 13 minutes compared to 10 minutes for women.
