With the cost of living sky rocketing I already find myself cutting back on life's little luxuries.
I try to go longer between hairdresser visits and can't remember when the last time I bought any expensive beauty products
I'm also on low/no buy new clothes this year and trying to utilise the clothes I already have. That's besides making changes to the heating and fuel in the car. Also less cinema trips and meals out.
Okay the thing that intrigues me is this. I have many friends who are 'really' high maintenance. And they're not all well off.
If I use Friend X as an example.
She has microbladed eyebrows that need topping up every now again.
She has her nails done every 4 weeks.
She also has eyelash extensions which have to be redone regularly.
As well as that she has regular facials and botox. She doesn't have extensions, but some of my friends do, and apparently they need to be moved at extra £££ every couple of weeks.
It's not just older ladies having this done, lots of younger people have gone down this high maintenance expensive route as well
How on earth will they manage to keep up with all this expensive grooming?
Listening to some of them talk, I get the impression that the top ups and ongoing maintenance is sometimes almost as much as the original treatments!
Because of the horrendously rising high cost of living do you think we'll see a return to more natural looking women, as the majority won't be able to afford to have these things done anymore?

Going after the economically disadvantaged!
