And although many of the survey participants reflect with shame upon their past style and image choices, some people think that they have not evolved with the modern times. In fact, the average person surveyed claims that they have not changed their look in six years.

“While many customers desire to evolve their look, the idea of a style update can be scary and often overwhelming. The good news is that you don’t always have to be with a dramatic change to see a result. It can be done in steps to make you feel more comfortable and minimize the risk of a fashion or styling disaster you might regret,” said Floyd’s 99 Technical Director of Education Patrick Butler.

Other situations where Americans find themselves making the effort have a job interview (68 percent), go on a date (66 percent), with friends (57 percent), and a function (46 percent).
