As a mum, pampering yourself regularly might seem like something from the distant past. If you’re constantly finding yourself skipping getting your hair cut or forgoing on a manicure that you’ve been wanting for ages because you don’t have the time or money to do so, you probably feel like some precious ‘me time’ is soon in order. If you’re a mum who’s hoping to save some time and money without compromising on looking good, we’ve put together some of the best ways to find discounts on deals on all the beauty treatments that you need.
Coupon Codes and Online Booking
When you book online through services such as Treatwell, you can often enjoy some nice sales and savings. With a Treatwell voucher, that you can get from either the company themselves or through external coupon and voucher sites, you can often get hairdressing, nails, tan and skin treatments at a fraction of the usual price. But, it’s also good to keep in mind that some online booking treatments could cost more due to commission when there’s no promotional code involved, so it’s a good idea to call the beautician directly first to ensure that you’re getting the best deal.
Home Hairdressing and Beauty
With the demand for beauty and hairdressing treatments that suit the client on demand, there are an increasing number of hairdressers and beauticians who visit their clients at home. These mobile beauticians are often able to charge much lower prices for their services, since they don’t have the same overheads and charges to cover as those who work at a salon. Getting your hairdresser or beautician to come to you can also be one of the best choices as a mum, too, as it means that you’ll be able to relax having your treatment without worrying about keeping the little ones occupied or getting a babysitter.
Depending on the particular hairdresser or beautician that you see, you may be able to take advantage of generous customer loyalty schemes. More and more beauticians are using loyalty schemes in order to encourage their clients to keep returning, for example by offering a free manicure once you’ve had a certain number of treatments with them. If you’re planning to return to a beautician or hairdresser that you like, don’t forget to enquire about whether or not they offer any of these great loyalty deals.
Many beauty salons cater to mums by offering bundle deals that allow you to have a range of treatments in just one appointment. Along with being more convenient and a great way of getting an awesome pampering session that’ll leave you feeling and looking amazing, these deals are often cheaper at many salons and you’ll be able to get a discount for booking several treatments at the same time.
As a mum, getting the time and money together to spend on beauty and hair treatments for yourself can often be much harder than it was before you became a parent. But, with plenty of great deals and treatments out there, there’s no need to feel anything less than great!
