5 Beauty Treatments That Might Actually Make You More Low Maintenance (No, Really)
We love our morning cup of coffee but hate that frizzy bedhead. Liberate yourself from morning beauty hassles (eyebrow filling, manicure fixing, acne addressing...you get the idea) with a few treatments that require no downtime and make daily upkeep a snap—so you have plenty of time for another cup of java.
Get Solid Brows
You'll skip that annoying ritual of filling in your brows after microblading, in which small amounts of pigment are semi-permanently tattooed to mimic the appearance of hairs. Starting at about $700, this isn't a cheap treatment, but it's a real eye-opener.

Apply Eyelash Extensions
It may seem like a big investment, until you realize all the money you'll be saving on mascara, which you won't need, and also how happy you'll be never sporting the raccoon look after lunch. Initial applications start at $120, and touchups, which are required about every three weeks, are $59.

Sit for a gel mani
Sure, you have to endure multiple UV-light drying sessions with each coat. But you'll get more than two weeks of chip-free nail protection and a super-shiny finish (starting at $50).

Schedule a Laser & Light Facial
Rubbing a slew of anti-aging or anti-acne products all over your face can be a real time suck, so we recommend just switching to a tinted SPF moisuturizer and stopping in for a soothing, collagen-boosting Skin Laundry treatment once a week. It's $65 but you'll be buying a discount package after you see your glowy skin.

Have a Keratin Treatment
Want your hair to be frizz-free and even look good without a blow-dry? Get a keratin treatment, in which a combination of proteins is applied to hair strands, which are then dried and flatironed into permanent (well, two-month) silky good behavior. It takes at least two hours and costs $200, but it will seem like you have a new (better) head of hair.
