This week’s Bionic Asks…
In this ick-onomy, we’re all trying to save a bit of cash. So what are your must-have salon services? The ones you absolutely, come heck-or-high-water go without? And which ones have you changed to doing at home?
Lately, my only mandated salon trip is for my hair cut. Every 6 weeks I need a trim or my ends get a bit scraggly. But I have even found a way to cut costs there. Instead of going to my normal salon when I just need a trim, I head to the local low-cost hair cuttery. It ends up to be about every other visit. So I’m saving approximately $25 every other cut- and that adds up over the year. I take those savings and stash them away. When I have enough saved, I indulge in a massage!
As my regular readers know, most everything else I’m a “do-it-yourself” type of gal. I color my own hair, add highlights when I want, do my own manis and pedis, and mix my weekly face masks. My skin is so sensitive I actually don’t trust most spas or salons with it.
Now it’s your turn… what do you scrimp n’ pinch in order to afford from the salon?
