Even though we love those deep conditioning treatments at the salon, some can end up doubling the bill. Plan in advance, suggests celebrity hair stylist and owner of two Connecticut salons, Adam Broderick. Consider wearing an overnight hair masque for 24 hours before your salon reservation. No masque on hand? Warm your thickest hair conditioner and apply to dry hair for 24 hours before your reservation.
At a nail salon, be aware that the potential for upcharges are everywhere. If they offer you a special "spa pedicure" or a 10-minute massage add-on, just say no. (Unless you feel like treating yourself that day!) Ricevuto also suggests double checking that the manicurist isn't charging you extra for strengtheners and special base coats. Also, many salons will try to talk you into a callous removal service since it's an additional charge, however, their regular pedicure with a deep soak and scrub will do the job just fine.
