The trusty treatment – the haircut. From making finer hair look fuller, to experimenting with that chop Dua Lipa pulls off so effortlessly, heading for a haircut pays off aesthetically and feels pretty great. Plus, we all need regular trims – even if you’re growing it out. Head massage, fancy shampoo, frothy coffee. All the good stuff. No wonder it’s consistently our most-booked treatment. Book hair
The all-off. No hair remaining. More streamlined for hitting the shops, if you will. It’s our most-booked waxing treatment, closely followed by the Brazilian, and a leg wax. Remember before heading to the salon to avoid coffee and alcohol (shucks), and wear loose trousers to prevent irritation post-wax. Heck, why not buy some fresh pants? It’s probably 50% off somewhere. Book wax
The two-week mani (that usually lasts for three), is created with gel, or shellac polish and cured under a UV lamp. This leaves an extra glossy finish, and nails so tough, you can carry 10 Zara bags at once without your polish suffering. It’s a miracle. I’ve also done the maths (somehow). Book this Friday, and your nails will last ‘til mid December. Get another mani then, and you’ll have festive fingertips right through to 2019. Book nails
Just because your Birkenstocks are packed away come winter time, doesn’t mean your feet won’t feel the benefit of an intensive pedi. The foot massage bit (AKA the best bit), will work wonders on post-shopping feet. And though you may be sans flip flops in December, sandals are a sort of go-to at festive parties. So, a glossy slick of polish won’t go amiss. Summer feet were made in winter, yep, that’s the phrase. Book pedicure
Less time applying mascara = more time for scrolling discounts online (definitely not at your work desk…). Eyelash extensions are forever popular around holiday season, lasting three-six weeks with the correct care, and varying in volume to suit your chosen 'vibe'. From ‘Russian volume’ to ‘classic lashes’, do your research, and choose wisely.Book lashes
Sometimes nothing beats a really great boost of bounce. Save yourself the arm ache and head to a hair stylist for that volume (because no one can do it like they can). A blow dry can last up to four days if you look after it – think sleeping in a silk scarf, and avoiding getting your hair wet – so it’s a good one to try pre-Christmas party. Or during your break from deal-searching. Book blow dry

Gather round – get close, real close – now shout it from the heavens, Ella-Eyre-style, because we just got paid. Like time passing on a Tuesday afternoon, or waiting for the tour at the end of Grand Designs, January has moved painfully slowly. It’s been filled with packed lunches, turning down social events, and balaclavas (for the cold, obviously). So, now that the funds have arrived, I’m going for it – americano, not filter; wine, not water; and beauty treatments, by the bucketload. Here are the treatments to invest in, this payday.
