I would make a poll, but there are just too many options (and I am not girly enough to know all of the options to put, lol). I am just curious about what beauty treatments you pay for versus doing yourself and what your approximate cost is each month. I am trying to decide what is worth paying for and what isn’t.
I would like to start doing a few things that I never bothered with before, and I’m debating where to start. I get my eyebrows threaded, my hair cut, sugaring, and facials. I do not do my nails or get them done (talk about lazy), I don’t do any kind of body treatments or scrubs, and I don’t even know what else I don’t do 😛
How about you?

I’ll get an occasional manicure/pedicure and get my bangs trimmed, but otherwise I don’t spend any money on grooming on a regular basis.
I didn’t realize I was so low maintenace. I feel pretty good now. Thanks, MrsPanda! 😀
ETA: I do paint my nails and do my eyebrows every few days!

I’m fairly low maintenance. I get regular manicures and pedicures and I have a stylist who cuts/colors my hair. Other than that I’m a do-it-yourself girl.

I only pay to get my hair cut – do everything else myself. I’d rather save/spend the money elsewhere – it’s easy enough to paint my own toenails and stuff, you know?

I get my hair trimmed and colored every 6-8 weeks. And in the summer I try to get a pedicure every 2-3 weeks. That is basically the only thing I splurge on :/
I do my own nails (except for special events), tweeze my eyebrows, and only had a facial once.

@jackieee: You’re lucky! If I knew how to do my own eyebrows, I would. As for facials, my skin really responds to them. I hate shaving, so that’s where the sugaring comes in. I rarely cut my hair (maybe twice a year) and I sure can’t do that myself.
Wow, I am higher maintenance than someone?! My sister would be proud 😀

I only pay for a haircut. Everything else is not worth paying for to me. And if I could give myeslf a decent haircut, I’d do that myeslf too!

@MrsPanda99: Before I went back to school, and actually had that money stuff, I used to get manicures 2x/month, pedicures 1x/month, eyebrows, underarms, and bikini waxed 1x/6 weeks (I’m relatively unhairy…), and my hair cut every 3 months or so.
Now it’s only the hair, I do everything else myself…minus nails, lest I look like I let a drunk kindergartner do them, and the occasional eyebrow/bikini wax.
Let’s just say, I’m so looking forward to full-time employment again.

@Sunfire: I love how regular manicures and pedicures look but I am scared of what the cost would be. @crayfish: tells me it is easy to do myself but I beg to differ. I end up with nail polish all over myself like I am 5 years old. Seriously 😛

Haircuts and the occasional pedicure and manicure… That’s it!

I get my hair cut and highlighted by a professional every 8-10 weeks. During that appointment I’ll also get my eyebrows waxed. I can usually keep them up pretty well between appointments but by the time I go back in for my hair touchup it’s time for a professional to reshape them.
I do my own at home gel manicures and regular pedicures. Where I live, an average shellac mani costs about $30 and a pedi runs about $35. So by doing those at home (2x a month for each) I save about $130.

Haircuts and color I have done at a salon. I do pretty much everything else myself.

@Cummins59: I think I am going to try to do my nails on my own, but like @lizzieb: said, I am about as skilled as a drunk kindergarten kid. I wish I had learned how to when I was younger but I never do…and now I suck!

Haircut done every 6-8 weeks, leg wax every 4-6 weeks. I’ve never done anything with my eyebrows. I wear glasses, what’s the point? I was getting bi-weekly manicures, but I stopped for a while to let my nails rest.
Haircut runs about 30, wax 95, manicures run 25ish – that includes tip.

@MrsPanda99: I, like you, am not very girly, and really don’t bother doing most stuff.
My nails are not done 90 percent of the time, but when I do them I usually pay for it. Same for pedicure. I cut my hair once a year, twice at most, and I also pay for that. I do not do facials, although I should. I have my eyebrows and upper lip waxes every three weeks.
