Tampa ranked vainest city in America

As someone who grew up just north of the city, and lived in South Tampa for several years, today's announcement comes as no surprise.

Tampa is home to the vainest people in America.

St. Petersburg ranked No. 11.

Miami ranked No. 8.

Men’s Health determined this by adding up each city’s percentage of Botox beauties, dye-job junkies and "people who will spend anything to look younger (Experian Marketing Services)," reads the email advertising the July/August issue of Men’s Health, on newsstands June 26.

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.
