(MENAFN Press) (EMAILWIRE.COM, December 23, 2012 ) San Francisco, CA --

Hair salons can charge 30 more for a female customer than her male counterpart. The Wilkinson Sword razor will cost a woman 30% more than a male version. However, Nivea charges double the amount for a male moisturizer than for a female version. Money explored various areas of spending to find out where discrimination was occurring most frequently. The research for the sake of gender equality in financial services.

After crunching the numbers on various products and services, Money found that women are charged 6% more than a man.

When it comes to clothing, certain retailers naturally price items differently depending on weather you are in the men's or women's section. While one may believe men's clothing costs more, it is not always the case. Despite mens' clothing often using more fabric, some stores will charge slightly more for women's clothing of the same design and style.

If a woman buys the same articles of clothing as a man, she will likely pay more. The latest ONS survey on spending showed the average for men's clothing was 244 per year, while women's spending was 458. Shoe's were the largest gap, with women at 109 and men at 68

When it came to underwear, women spend more as well. 57.20 per year vs 26 for men. Sanitary products also are more costly for women, thought it should be noted that women have more 'necessary' sanitary items than their male counterparts.

When it comes to food, men do spend slightly more. This is likely due to the need for more total calories, as well as the fact that men tend to not use restrictive diets, meaning they can often intake more overall food. A survey of U.S. Office workers found men buy quick or ready-made sandwiches, and spend about double what female counterparts spend.

Women tend to drink less as well, but of course the variance is large depending on the individual. Women on average spend 1.47 per day, and men 1.96.

When it comes to haircuts, nearly everyone is being gouged, however women tend to pay a higher price than men. Men often go for the easiest and cheapest cut, bringing down their collective average, while women often want standard cuts at least, which drives up the average for them.
