Do you get your hair & nails done? If so, how often, and how much do you spend?

My hubby has no idea how much money I save the family... I cut my own hair, rarely touch up the color with a $5 box from walmart, and never do my nails. I'd LOVE to get my hair done every 6-8 weeks, but mine costs $125 each time to maintain, so I just don't. I keep it in a ponytail most of the time.

Nope, never have, and I never will

I cut the kids' hair too. Mine hasn't been cut in ages, but I can cut it myself if needed. I'm a very low maintenance type person. I don't do makeup(except nail polish). I don't do much with my hair, and def. I never use extra products other than a conditioner now and again if needed. I tend to leave my head alone, it has enough problems.

My aunt is a cosmetologist so when I am home in Texas (like I am now) I go to her shop to get it done. She charges me 50.00 for a cut and color-so basically I only pay for product. When I am not in Texas I rarely get it done though, and that's only getting my bangs trimmed every once in awhile.

i go to a salon to get my hair cut, maybe once a year. Usually we all go to my BIL as he is a hair stylist (though the boys and Dh go more often than i do). But i only get my hair cut, not dyed or anything fancy

i have never had my nails done, i dont think i ever will, its just not something i would enjoy or be into

I get a haircut once or twice/year, never my nails. I cut DH's and the kids myself (except Alyssa's last haircut, she was donating so I took her to get it done).

No to both. I do my own hair and my nails. I'd prefer to do it myself.

I bite my nails so I definitely don't spend money to get them done. I occasionally get my hair trimmed. I don't even let them blow dry it when I have it cut. I don't do it at home so I don't do it at the salon (um, Hair Cuttery) either. I never use anything but shampoo and conditioner on my hair.

I worked in a salon for a while and learned a lot. So I cut my own hair as well as everyone in the family (neighborhood? lol). I feel like I'm always cutting someone's hair. I actually wish I had a sink and chair in my house specifically for it. I don't go into the salon unless a friend needs a model for something, then I might go let them do something to my hair for a show. But I like doing things on my own for the most part. Saves money and time.

I don't do anything to my hair or nails except cut them. I'm very low maintenance!

I'm not high maintenance, so I get a hair cut twice a year and I do my own nails.
