  • I used to get my hair done at a spa ( only because my stylist moved to one), but it just became too expensive. Now I color my hair at home. I don't get my nails done anymore either. Its just one of the first things to go when your trying to budget, that and restaurants. I'd kill for a hot stone massage though.

  • As a hairstylist I do my own coloring & waxing. My kids will paint my nails. I've never been into spending money on those type of things , I do get a($15.00 )haircut in a salon every 6-8 weeks.

  • I do my own hair, manicures and pedicures at home. It's easier for me since I used to work at a shop for years. I'd love to get a massage though. Waxing is out of the question!

  • I used to go to a spa but that really is expensive. So now I go to the salon to get my hair trimmed and coloring every 3 months. I do my own manicure and pedicures.

  • Waxing, salon, haircolor, lucky me I am a hairstylist, but never cut my own hair! Pedicures once a month and manicures every 2 weeks!

  • @farrahann @ewadun -ugh..I'm so missing massages.... =(  True! Those are the first things that are gonna go when one is on a budget.  I'm just done with my haircolor and now.  Ladies, I'm multitasking. Having a hair conditioning treatment at home, guiding the kids  with their multiplication table, CMing, answering emails and organize around the house.
