Spa And Beauty Treatments For Next To Nothing
Are your financial woes stressing you out? Are you longing for the days when splurging for an afternoon at the spa would instantly rejuvenate your spirits, but now you no longer can spare the cash for such a luxury? Well, our Fab & Fru friend Virginia called us up to let us know that there’s still a way to enjoy your favorite spa treatments without putting a serious dent in your bank account! Every city has high-end beauty and massage schools where students need to rack up hours practicing their trade. Some of these schools charge a marginal fee while others are actually free! So, if you don’t mind a supervised student giving you a mani-pedi, haircut, facial, massage, or even bikini wax (on second thought, you might want a fully trained professional for that one) then visiting your local beauty school may just be your ticket to recession style rejuvenation!
To get you started, we’ve complied a list of some of the better known salons and schools, but there are plenty of city specific beauty and massage schools that offer similar discounts as well.
