I’m a “DIY girl” and I do my own salon treatments… people call me “frugal queen”
One BEAUTY guru claims her slick DIY skills have given her the go-ahead for expensive beauty treatments.
Destinee Hobbs, who posts regularly on Instagram, claims she was able to do her own salon treatments — including nails and waxing — for under $50 and has encouraged more to get involved.
In one clip, she said, “I’ve started doing my nails at home and honestly they look so good and are so much more affordable.”
The Instagrammer says her secret to success is smart shopping on Amazon, including cheap nail polishes, clipper sets and eyelash extensions.
Their full list includes:
- Beetle Gel Nail Polish
- Teenitor Nail Brush and Clipper Set
- Quewel eyelash extensions
- Kiss Falscara
- Bella waxing kit
- Koula wax set
- 20 inch hair extensions (x2)
- Dyson hair rollers
- Might Patch Cleaning Strips
- Vina La Juicy fragrance set
Instagram users appreciated Destinee’s useful tips and were quick to use the comments to express it.
“Definition of boujee on a budget,” said one.
“It gives and saves money so smart,” wrote another
“Where have you been all my life I need those eyelash extensions and the glue,” added a third.
A fourth wrote: “This is the new Flex that saves money”
While a fifth exclaimed: “We love a frugal queen. Live HONEST for it.”
It comes after a survey found millions of women have abandoned beauty salons for good after learning to treat themselves at home for a fraction of the cost during lockdown.
A survey of 2,000 women aged 18 to 45 found 34% have been forced to miss their usual appointments due to the Covid lockdown.
And now 38% say they will never return, and 28% love not having to book an appointment to be pampered.
Those who switched to at-home hair removal methods estimate they saved an average of $196.
Braun’s Olivia Hughes, who commissioned the study as part of her Salon to Sofa campaign, said: “A lot has changed in the choices we make today when it comes to our beauty routines.
“Convenience has become an even more important decision factor for women alongside reliable results.”
Performing beauty treatments at home is reportedly cost-driven and has led to a wave of so-called “tricks” being shared online.
This month, a skincare expert shared her secret trick on how to make DIY eye masks that help remove dark circles using a popular salad ingredient.
While a TikToker shared her tips for DIY botox — and all you need is an EGG.
