Beauty on the Cheap

Six great spa services under $75

Stress causes wrinkles. No breaking news there. But if financial issues inflict crow’s feet and undue tension, bargain beauty treatments can provide a double dose of therapy. Here are six services that cost way less than 100 bucks.

Organic Hair Replenishment and Blowout
The Payoff: A replenishing treatment with essential plant oils and conditioners makes locks soft and shiny; a healthy-hair consultation gives you vitamin and diet recommendations.
The Payout: $60 for first-time clients who mention DailyCandy (reg. $75).
The Place: Pure Luster Hair Design, in Lidia’s European Beauty Center, 15404 Addison Rd. (214-966-9253).

Indian Head Massage
The Payoff: Increased energy flow and relief from tension headaches. Think how great a professional shampooing feels and multiply that by approximately 93.4.
The Payout: $50 for 30 minutes.
The Place: Pranaa Ayurveda Spa & Yoga, 4017 Preston Rd., Plano (972-608-0402).

Facial Threading
The Payoff: Baby-soft hairlessness without the irritation or “Kelly Clarkson!” moments of traditional waxing. Works for brows, upper lip, chin, forehead, and neck.
The Payout: $8-$36.
The Place: Wink Threading Salon, 3839 McKinney Ave., ste. 115 (214-599-9465). No appt. needed.

The Payoff: Fewer wrinkles, improved skin tone, smaller pores, and better production of collagen and elastin. You’ll look like you just returned from vacation.
The Payout: $75 for first-time clients who mention DailyCandy (reg. $178).
The Place: Luxury on Lovers, 4703 W. Lovers Ln. (214-352-8800).

Foot Soak, Reflexology, and Hot Stone Massage
The Payoff: Tired feet and legs get new life. It’s the antidote to all those wedges you’ve been wearing.
The Payout: $50 for 25 minutes.
The Place: V Spa at the Verandah Club, in the Hilton Anatole, 2201 Stemmons Fwy. (214-761-7800).

Classic Pedicure
