Cheap (Beauty) Thrills

Blowouts, waxing, and more

yuan spa!

’Tis the season to tame frizzy hair, battle sunscreen-clogged pores, and polish perpetually chipped nails. Keep it together with these top-notch, bill-saving treatments.

Splash Time
Soak your bones during Yuan Spa’s hydrotherapy happy hour (Tuesday-Thursday, 4-10 p.m.), where $25 buys you access to the hot and cold baths, steam room, and sauna.

Quick Change
Spa Scotta’s new 3G menu offers three 30-minute services (facial, pedicure, massage) for $30 each.

Two for One
Get both lashes and brows tinted for $35 total at Paris-by-way-of-Madison Park beauty boutique Frenchy’s Day Spa. At that price, we won’t even bat an eye.

Mane Attraction
Feel posh the minute you walk into pristine hair haven Swink Style Bar; look it by the time you walk out. Score a professional blowout or dry style for $35.

Nailed It
Quaint Queen Anne parlor Mimisan delivers luxe, ecofriendly nail services like an easy-on-the-wallet manicure ($25) and pedicure ($38).

Bare Minimum
If sipping a frosty beer in The Wax Bar lounge doesn’t entice you, its happy hour waxing specials (Tuesday-Friday, 1-3 p.m.) will. Call in the morning to find out that day’s discounts (e.g., $15 brows or underarms).

Face Facts
Need a facial fix on the fly? Julep Nail Parlor has you covered with its 25-minute express facial ($42, $32 for members).

Serene Scene
Unruly beach brows are no match for the happy hour services at the Spaahh at Hotel 1000. A brow wax rings in at just $16.

What You Knead
Sure, it’s a smidge over our self-imposed limit, but after the Tension Target massage ($55) at Vida Spa, you won’t stress about it.

Sounds pretty on the money to us.
