Men’s Health Announces “America’s Vainest Cities”
NEW YORK, June 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Tampa, FL, is home to the vainest people in America, while the citizens of Des Moines, IA are the least concerned with appearances, according to the July/August issue of Men’s Health, which reports where looks are everything.
To determine the rankings, Men’s Health added up each city’s percentage of Botox users, folks who go for dye jobs, and people who will spend anything to look younger (Experian Marketing Services). Also tallied were sales of at-home hair dyes, teeth whiteners, and shapewear (SimplyMap), as well as per-capita rates of cosmetic procedures, cosmetic dentists, plastic surgeons, and tanning salons (American Society of Plastic Surgeons, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, AMA, and SimplyMap). Foursquare provided information on where people check into those salons most often.
The 10 Most Vain and 10 Least Vain cities are as follows:
Most Vain Least Vain 1. Tampa, FL 91. Memphis, TN 2. Plano, TX 92. Toledo, OH 3. Atlanta, GA 93. Detroit, MI 4. Las Vegas, NV 94. Burlington, VT 5. Dallas, TX 95. Fort Wayne, IN 6. Pittsburgh, PA 96.
