Entertainment

Hair and beauty

It’s good to take care of yourself as a woman and make sure that you look good, but you need to be selective so as not to drain your pocket. Speak to your hairdresser and check with her if it’s possible to have a deal in which you pay a monthly fee.

Tip: An even cheaper option would be to buy the products and do your own hair at home. It’s also not necessary to change your hairstyle every two weeks.
