It has become apparent from conversations with friends, family and clients that us ladies cost a bloody fortune in treatments what with our nails, hair, waxing, facials, pedis etc.

Personally I indulge in a monthly facial, used to get waxing done but have gone back to shaving as I'm very dark and I can't bear the regrowth AT ALL in the summer, I have my hair cut about every 7/8 weeks, and I do my own nails but that is it.

Apart from swapsy treatments with other therapists, what do you spoil yourself with regularly?

I get my hair done every 6 wks cut and colour, but everything else I do myself, nails, wax tanning etc. It would be nice to be pampered just once in a while.

I would LOVE to have facials.
I get my hair cut about once or twice a year!! :lol:
Honestly........ but I have vowed since having it cut recently, that I am going to get it cut every other month from now on!

Everything else (Tanning, waxing, nails) I do myself......... That's why I'm pale, hairy and in need of a rebalance most of the time! LOL

Therapists are the worst aren't they! We have all these skills, and all these lovely treatments that we tell people they ought to have regularly but we never have any done ourselves. :smack:

And I'm just as bad. I had a massage about three months but I can't remember the last time I had a facial. And I had a really really dreadful manicure at a local salon - but that's another story..... - so I don't think that counts.I do all my own waxing, manicures/pedicures, eyelash tint etc. I feel a visit to a salon coming on!

I get my waxing done regularly...get my hair done about every 6 weeks and have my nails done as often as possible....if I can't I do them myself but I hate doing my own nails I'm ok on one hand but the other really annoys me.
I love having facials and massages but never seem to find enough time so end up buying the products and doing the best I can at home.
I do regular pedis on myself but its not a treat doing things yourself.

I have my hair cut regularly, sometimes coloured or I do the colour myself. I do my own nails....... although Cathie did them for me a wedding in April, which was lovely!

I keep promising myself a massage or a facial or a Spa Pedi but never either don't have time to talk myself out of it......:irked:.

A Facial at least once a month. I see it more as a necessasity (sp) then a luxury although it is very relaxing.

I like to to practice what I preach :)

Nothing :irked: But I really am going to start.

First off (although not really a treatment) I am going to go to the Bath Spa for a couple of hours and have a soak in the ' waters ' and hope that it will ease my pains, apparently they are amazing.

I don't have any treatments done to myself, ever !
I never have , I've never had a massage or a facial or a spray tan,etc... and I have only had my nails done once before when I was 17.
I have only been having my hair cut by professionals since I was 22 , up until then I used to cut it myself :o
And I have never had my hair coloured professionaly.

woe is me !!! lol :green:

I do my own nails obviously and I wax myself .

I have my hair cut & permed probably 3 times a year....I hate the hairdressers so I do my own colouring approx every 6 weeks. I use a sunbed intermittently but everything else I do myself...pedicure, nails, waxing/shaving.

It's not the best, doing it yourself, but I can't do with faffing from other people. ...especially on me:)

I have eyelash tints & nails done. I have a facial every 6-8 weeks and a massage when I can. I usually do my own toes, and have my hair tinted every few weeks (damn grey hairs!) and cut every so often. There are other treatments that I would love to have done regularly but its not easy to take time out with a business to run and a young family to take care of.

I have a pedicure ever two weeks in the summer and monthly in the winter. I have my under arms waxed.

I have the odd facial and back massage when the mood takes me.

I have my hair done on a regular basis - about every 5 weeks.

I do my own eyebrows and any other facial hair removal and my own nails when I want them doing.

I do my own nails... hands and toes every 3-4 weeks

I get waxed every 4-5 weeks (slow growth rate, so im told)
hair trimmed every 6 weeks and coloured every 8.. I like to get a facial once a month if i can afford it.
I went through college with a lady who i stayed really close to, she gives me a hot stone massage in return for enhancements and a pedicure.. :green: I look forward to our monthly catch ups.. I do her refills and give her a pedi, then she gives me a 60 min massage! GREAT STUFF!
