Beauty on a Budget

What do you do when money’s tight and sacrificing self-care isn’t an option? Fortunately, there are tons of money-saving beauty hacks to take advantage of! We’ve gathered our top tips for looking like a million bucks without breaking the bank.

Hit up your local beauty school

You can receive deep discounts on services if you’re willing to help a newbie hone their craft. After all, being a student doesn’t mean you can’t pull off epic style! Student stylists and estheticians typically have an experienced supervisor monitoring their work, so you’ll be in good hands.


Let’s face it, there are plenty of beauty services you should not try to do yourself. But there are also plenty that you can tackle from the comfort of your own home! If you don’t have the time or funds for a salon mani-pedi, a facial or a special hair treatment, that’s ok! Doing it yourself is easier than ever with so many affordable, salon-quality products out there.

Shop around

Yes, we love them. But buying beauty products at pricey boutiques can do major damage to your wallet. Try the more frugal route and shop at the drugstore instead! They have quality products for a fraction of the price. You might be surprised to learn the store brand ingredients in your favorite products are identical. If they’re virtually the same, go cheaper!

You don’t have to go broke to stay beautiful. It’s totally possible to look your best for less!
