How often do you go to the hairdressers ?

Get nails done etc ?
Am trying to budget for next year and am thinking once every 10 weeks for a haircut, mid-length hair and colour (highlights) every 14 weeks ?
I'm going to go for nails once a month ?
I know I could do those myself but it's my only treat, don't smoke or drink or buy clothes really.

Highlights need done every 6-8 weeks to look nice

Every 14 weeks will leave you witn roots

I last had my hair cut in May.
Eyebrows/upper lip waxed every 3 weeks
Facial every 2 months

Cut every 6 weeks and colour every 18 for me, very subtle high and low lights that don't show roots. That works out at just under £50pcm which is my budget.

I have my hair cut every 6-8 weeks.

I occasionally colour my own hair and don't have nails done so cut and blow dry is my only extravagance.

ChasingSquirrels Sat 01-Jan-11 14:15:40

hair - know someone who does it either here or there - costs £5, approx every 2 months
I was colouring it myself (well my mum was) so around £6 every couple of months, but I am growing it out now, can;t be bothered tbh. Doesn't look great atm, but am nearly there.
And will probably revert to colouring!

nail - do what? I have never in my life had my nails done.

mugggletoeandwine Sat 01-Jan-11 14:22:19

I do my own.
Cut every 6-8 weeks, colour every 4-6 weeks.
Re-paint my bails a couple of times a week, file weekly and full buff/cuticle sort out once a month, though more often as needed.

I get my hair cut 3 times a year - it's long and curly, so I can get away with it; if it was straigh I'd want it to be perfectly straight-edged all the time. Never coloured it, other than a bad Shaders and Toners experience when I was 12!
Used to get eyelashed dyed and eyebrows waxed before I had DS2 - miss that.

I was kinda hoping that if I spent a bit more energy and money on looking groomed then I could get away with less on clothes and other tat that fills the house up with rubbish.
There's no way I could cut my own hair, I can hardly blow dry and as for nails, I can do them but they look such a mess when I do it's not worth the hassle.

mugggletoeandwine Sat 01-Jan-11 14:48:40

I also pluck my eyebrows almost daily (I'm a tad obsessed)
My hair is poker straight but looks fine and is easy to cut.
I'm good at doing my nails too, and always like them to look good.
I'm a cleaner and it's my way of fighting against it!

Hair cut/roots every 6 weeks.
Nails-toes every 5 weeks in the summer, fingers about twice a year.
Facials-every 8-10weeks, but I also have microdermabrasion every 6 weeks.

thefentiger Sat 01-Jan-11 16:43:22

Roots every month -vvv grey !
Harcut every other month and highlights 4 times a year.
Nails - do myself
eyebrows -threading once a month.
Have virtually no hair on legs so shave once a month grin

CybilScissorhands Sat 01-Jan-11 16:45:16

Hair , well <shem> I'm of the DFIY school of hairdressing atm

nails, toes NEVER, do that myself too

roots, DIY as well

Will go and get a decent haircut eventually though, always used to

CybilScissorhands Sat 01-Jan-11 16:45:33

and by <shem> I mean <ahem>

newpup Sat 01-Jan-11 16:50:38

I have my hair cut every 6 weeks and highlighted every 12 weeks. I have my eyebrows done every 4-6 weeks.

MrsSeanBean Sat 01-Jan-11 16:52:03

If you have long hair you can get away with 3-4 months IMO. <old witch emoticon>

jellybeans Sat 01-Jan-11 16:55:55

I have medium length hair and go every 4-6 months for a c & b. I colour it myself, have only a few greys underneath. Would like highlights but don't want to commit to the hairdressers every 6 weeks so stick with doing it myself when can be bothered.

Alouiseg Sat 01-Jan-11 16:56:09

I only have my hair cut about 4 times a year, I have my roots dyed monthly and I am a bit partial to a blow dry now and again.

Pedi and waxing monthly.

Eyebrow and top lip threaded monthly.

Mani v.v. Rarely as my nails are so crap it's barely worth it.

orienteerer Sat 01-Jan-11 16:56:46

Every 6-8 weeks

BecauseItoldYouSo Sat 01-Jan-11 16:57:36

Well I used to only get my hair done once every 6 months (or more often on when on holiday as cheaper with exchange rates). I don't get my nails done, however I do have massages and facials.

However, since I have discovered it has turned into once every 6 weeks for the hair and when I get a really good deal for a body treatment/facial.

verytellytubby Sat 01-Jan-11 17:00:29

I go every 3 months (half head of highlights & haircut). My hair is very rooty by the time I go.

bellavita Sat 01-Jan-11 17:04:08

I go to the haidressers every 6 weeks.

6th week - cut

6th week - cut and full head of highlights plus an all over colour similar to my own to minimise grey regrowth

6th week - cut

6th week - cut and half a head of highlights and root touch up of colour

Cycle begins all over again.

I do like having my nails done too, but I can do just as good a job myself - same with a pedicure - although I do tend to have one a week before our holiday.

Fleecy Sat 01-Jan-11 17:04:41

I have my (long, straight) hair done every 3-4 months. It's a bit rooty by then but it's subtley highlighted so it doesn't look that bad. I think...

Do my own nails. Never had a facial.
