Frugal or not so Frugal? You make the call!
Do you ever get to the place where you're ALWAYS wearing a banana clip in your hair and your feeling kinda hagged out like an Old Fish Wife? (no offense to any ladies out there!) I mean just put me in some Wellies and give me a Mackerel!
Last night my 2 older chickadees and I tried a night out at the local Beauty College. We had a great time! Normally I cut every one's hair but sometimes you have to splurge. Trying to become and stay debt free,Superman and I usually get family haircuts. So this was nice,pampering and helped the students out. We each got shampoos, cuts and styles for $8. That is alot right now, but so worth it! My oldest chick paid her own way. I'm so proud of her! ($8 is really good, with coupon the a "dry cut" around here is $10) Most of my friends pay between $35 to $45 for what we got for $8.
The other nice thing about the beauty school is that the Head Instructor checks the haircut! Mine needed a little "tweeking" and looks great! You also spend a bit more time getting pampered as compared to the other salons. The students want it to be perfect!
So when we need another splurge we're heading back for pedicures. I've only had 1 other professional one done in my life.So it should be a real treat! But for now I won't feel so guilty getting my hair done every 8 weeks or so.
