Do you get your hair professionally done? Nails? Facials? Waxed? Make-up? Massages? How much do you pay for your monthly upkeep?
Hair, about 120-150 a month, and then around 300 every third month when I get “the works”
Nails, 80 dollars a month
toes, 70 dollars a month
lashes 30 dollars a month
What about you?

Hair: I cut it myself
Makeup: chapstick, mascera and a light mineral foundation
That’s literally it, other than body wash and lotion. I tan going to the beach, I tweeze my brows myself and I can’t grow my nails out enough for a manicure.

I get my hair cut about every 6 weeks, that costs $60. Though I do have a gym membership ($500/year) and I buy any fruits and veggies I am craving even if they are not in season (if I want to spend $4/lb on tomatoes in January, so be it).

I have oftentimes wished I could do my own hair! It’s quite an expense to keep it looking good. If I knew how, it would be a no brainer…a done deal! Luckily, my aunt does my eyebrows, and I don’t get any other hair on my body taken care of professionally. So that saves!

I don’t dye, or treat my hair in any way. I used to get it trimmed but I stopped a year ago. I trim it myself now.
I sometimes buy shampoo and conditioner that is a little more expensive but nothing crazy.
I do my own nails and do a pretty good job at it.
I pluck my own eyebrows.
I guess I really only buy makeup — about $50 for 3 months worth of makeup.
I don’t pay for a gym membership, I just take the dog for a walk or jog outside.

A $10 box of Feria? That’s my only real monthly expense.
I haven’t gotten my haircut in like a year. I trim it myself, but usually I go every 6 months to get it cut and buy my hair products at the salon, so that’s $120 a pop, $240 a year. I buy makeup like once a year and that costs ~$200, maybe a bit more. I stopped getting my nails done and just use my own polish which is rolled into my makeup purchase costs. I do my own eyebrows and use Fiance for massages.
If you don’t count standard shampoo/bodywash/razors/etc then it looks like I spend about $47 a month if you average the total over a year.

Well, it used to be a lot more before the economy hit bottom. lol I used to get waxed, get mani-pedis once a week, laser twice a year for sun spots, etc. shots of cortisone for my zits, etc. I spent a small fortune every year on maintenance (would that I had that money now!)
But necessity is the mother of invention and I’ve become a pro at maintenance. I do my own nails once a week without fail and I take care of my own brows (pluck, trim and shape), I found this great Salley Hansen product called PODS that removes upper lip hair, so no more monthly waxing. My doctor has me on a really inexpensive antibiotic for the acne, which works great.
Sadly, the laser is out of the question, as are the Restalyne shots that I finally really need. Boo. But the one thing I will never give up is getting my hair done: highlights. lowlights and cut every six weeks and it’s worth every penny. I live in a small city so I spend about $200-$250 every time I go.

$60 haircut every couple of months. I trim the back of my hair myself in between cuts to keep from developing a mullet.
I do my own nails, and give myself mini spa treatments when I’m feeling run down. I spend maybe $10-$15 monthly on cosmetics if you average it out.

lashes 30 dollars a month
I don’t even know what it MEANS to have your lashes done!!
I get my hair cut about once every 3 months – $70, including tip
Well, that’s not true, in the summer I’ll get a bikini wax once a month for $40.
I do my brows myself, trim my nails but don’t regularly polish them, wear very light mineral makeup.

Haircut, maaaaybe every 6-8 months. $30-50.Done… just about as low maintenance as it gets. I don’t wear make up daily and take care of nails and brows and what not myself.

I live near a big hairdressing school, so I get my hair cut there for $10 every other month. I may spend $10 every month on face wash and hair stuff, but usually less than that. Oh, and i get my eyebrows done like every 3 months for $12.

Holy moly, I feel cheap.
I get my hair cut about every 5 months at about $50 each time. Other than that no expenses. Don’t do my nails, tweeze my eye lashes, don’t really wear makeup and DH gives me weekly massages.

My big expense is hair: $250 every 9 weeks.
Other than that, I do my own nails, don’t go to the spa, use drugstore makeup and skincare/haircare products so not too bad.
