How to Get a Cheaper Massage, Facial, or Pedicure

Money Tip: Get a Cheaper Massage, Facial, or Pedicure

Visiting a stylist-in-training for your trim is a known trick for saving money on your beauty upkeep, but I hadn't thought of utilizing the same idea for other treatments until I came across the tip in an article by The Frisky. In an article called "Five Ways to Stay Fabulous on a Budget," the author mentions that she can indulge on things like massage, pedicures, and facials by making an appointment with a massage or beauty school.

A student may or may not have the same polished touch of a full-fledged professional, but serious savings can be worth the slight sacrifice. If you went to a school for your treatments alternating every other appointment, with your usual splurge salon, you'd certainly notice the positive change in your bank account balance. The article's author suggests searching online for a recommended massage or beauty school, so I checked Yelp for reviews in San Francisco. There were plenty to choose from, and the affordable prices made me eager to try one for my next indulgent treatment.

Have you ever taken advantage of this money-saving method?
