Confession: I might be just a little high maintenance in the beauty department. As a beauty editor, I exist in a strange silo where meeting with celebrity facialists and getting a lash lift at the office are all in a day’s work. (Tough life, I know!) It wasn’t until 2020 forced us all to slow down and stay home that I realized just how many beauty services I was partaking in on a regular basis. From eyebrow lamination to haircuts with celebrity stylists, I never really took stock of just how many beauty appointments were constantly on my calendar.
Then, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale hit and as I shopped through the pages, I started calculating just how many of the items had come in handy for me in place of my beloved salon services. Now, there’s no comparing an at-home job to the real thing, but I’ve been holding it all together quite well if I do say so myself! All these crazy deals are finally open to everyone, so it’s the perfect time to browse for yourself and see about the face, hair, and body treatments you might be able to do yourself—and on the cheap. Now through August 30 is your chance to save up to 40% off on the most beloved beauty buys.
Ahead, check out all the on-sale tems that have come in super handy and saved me a whopping $732 compared to paying the professionals. Keep scrolling for everything you need to know.
