Wouldn't it be great if we could barter our services for things that we need?! It came to me in a flash of inspiration last night as I was trying to sleep (cheese before bed, don't do it). If say, a beauty therapist could offer a treatment e.g. a tan, a facial, make up or whatever in exchange for a set of nails from a nail tech, both would be getting luxury treatments for a bargain price and be able to promote each others businesses...

Maybe I DID eat too much cheese :green:

I do this with my hairdresser - it worked out harder passing money then giving it back!!!

Wish I could find a hairdresser like that, lol...just had my hair done and was staggered at the cost, lol. Still, like Eva Longoria, I'm worth it :green:

Im always swapping a tan or nails to get my hair done. I used to be a hairdresser but still have a lot of hairdressing good friends that always seem to want to swap treatments. So im a very luck gal!!!

that's the bad thing about being the only therapist in your salon, you don't have anyone to do the lovely treatments on you! grr!

I'm so jealous :) Skills I have aplenty, but alas, ready cash I do not! Think the bus driver will accept a facial in exchange for my weekly bus ticket? haha.

I think we should start some sort of I wanna/I gotta club :) If anyone's in the Liverpool/Warrington area, do give me a nudge :)

I'm not far from you (in Leigh) but I can only do nails! Would be more than willing for you to teach me how to do a facial with you as the guinea pig though if you're up for it!!

Bus pass? Does that mean you don't drive? I could pick you up, we could have a proper girlie pamper session - bring a bottle of wine or something - although I don't drink, fortunately that now means no taxi home for you either then! (Or you could stay over)

I LIKE this idea of 'wanna/gotta club'!!

You could always have a wash and blow dry every time she has her infills just to even things up a bit? Plus, there's nothing better than a professional blow dry, especially when you have a birds nest like me :green:

I have only today started swapping treatments with a lady who does reflexology for me, I give her a Classic Pedi in return.

She does a load of stuff, Hopi Ear Candle, Reiki, Accupressure, Massage etc etc, so I cant wait to try different treatments!!
