Wow. I occasionally buy a new lipstick so like $5 a month? I don’t get my hair cut often but maybe divided out that would add $10 a month.

Hmmm…..it’s like $60 dollars to cut my hair every two months. And I get my eyebrows plucked or waxed every two months too, so that’s $20. I haven’t gotten a pedicure or a manicure since March, but I’m getting that done the day before the wedding. laughing

I don’t really do any of that stuff. I do buy expensive makeup and skincare, but it’s not really a monthly expense, more “as needed”. I wax my own eyebrows, do my own nails, dye my own hair, etc. 

Depending on the month and what I need, I could spend as little as $20 or as much as $200.

Hair – $20/month (1 hair cut every 3 months)

Nails – Nothing, have gels at home

Eyelashes – Just started these. $60 every 4-6 weeks for fills

Massage – $20 every 2 months, rest is covered by medical

Makeup – Part of a subscription box (Ipsy) which is $12/month

Maintain me the way I look now or maintain me the way I aspire to look? lol

Current:  deodorant, toothpaste & Taco Bell

Aspiring to: Hair that’s not always stuck in a ponytail, something approaching an actual skin care routine, an upgrade from home mani-pedi to spa mani-pedi, getting back into the habit of wearing make-up on a daily basis after a summer of outdoor sports and slacking and maybe expanding my non-work wardrobe beyond yoga pants and tank tops.

Hair cut once every 6 months, so works out to $10/month. 

Brow/lip threading maybe every 6 weeks, technically works out to $11/month

I used to get a massage monthly, but benefits fully covered it, but would be $90/month

Brazilian/lower leg/underarm wax every 2 months, works out to $75/month

I get my teeth cleaned every 4 months, so I guess 150$/ a session, so that’s but about $35/month

$5 a month for lip balm

$10 a month for hair masks/ oils

so that’s a total of about $50 a month.

I like mud racing and quadding, so that’s where most of my money goes 😂

The only thing I do is my hair for $130 every two months (highlights and cut).

zoraneale :  I get my hair cut ($85) about every eight to ten weeks.  Nothing else.  Well, I use Vaseline for lip balm.

zoraneale :  Yeah there are a TON of places in town that do lashes so it’s pretty competetive. It is $90 for a whole set or $60 for the fill.

And I think that they last just because I very rarely where makeup. At all. I work in a remote mining camp where if I wore makeup I would really stand out. Other then that just the standard no oils, brush them out, etc.

I get a $50 haircut twice a year and spend maybe $100 a year on random beauty things like wax, face masks, makeup, etc. So I guess it works out to $16 a month.
