Skin Care – Is it a splurge or a steal?

Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love saving money, but sometimes it’s equally important to invest. This post we are going to break down some of the most common things we hear about cost and services.
Brows-
“That is too expensive for a brow wax. The nail place I go to will wax them for $10.”
First off, people typically wax their brows every 4 weeks, that means you have 13 waxes a year. The grand total for a year of BBHL brow waxes is $234 dollars. Spending 5 dollars at Starbucks each week for a year costs $260 dollars. When you break it down, it’s not really that expensive.
Second, there is a difference between waxing and shaping. There are some people who were genetically blessed with perfectly shaped brows, and then there is the rest of us. In order to give you your best brows we measure and map your face. Over time this will help your brows grow in with the desired shape.
Finally, while some nail technicians are licensed cosmetologist, some do it illegally. Either way, most have not had much in-depth training on waxing techniques and skin care needs. Every week I answer at least 3 to 4 frantic messages from someone who had a bad reaction to a discount wax. Aside from unsanitary practices, many of these places are not trained to recognize common skin conditions. The type of wax, the temperature, how its applied and pulled and of course the state of the skin being waxed are all things to consider, as well as medications you might be taking.
Skin Care-
“I want to book a facial, I have wrinkles/acne/age spots and I want them gone.”
Facials are great tools in a skin care regimen, but many people expect miracles. Think of it like weight loss. If you eat unhealthy the majority of the time, one salad won’t equal a year of healthy choices. Invest first in a quality skin care line that addresses your concerns and goals. Adding facials on top of a good skin care regimen, can help supercharge the battle for healthy, happy skin. If what you are looking for is an hour or 2 of pampering, then book the facial. But if you are looking for solutions to skin care problems, book a consultation and invest first in a skin care regimen designed for your specific skin type to target your specific needs. The outcome of your facial will only have long term results if you have a good home regimen.
Some of our services fall into the splurge category, but regardless of what it is, BBHL tries very hard to keep our prices affordable. On top of that we offer monthly deals and a referral program. Make sure to check our website and sign up for out emails for information on our current deals. If you refer someone, make sure they let us know you sent them, you both get a discount!
XOXO, Ashley & Hannah
