Here’s Your Top To Toe Guide To Beauty On A Budget In Dublin


Staying perfectly groomed can be expensive, especially in Dublin, so we’re here to help. 

We’ve put together a top-to-toe guide to some of the best budget beauty options out there. 

You can thank us later. 


It’s really tough to find an affordable hair salon in Dublin, but Cut_social in Phibsborough is cheaper than most of the big names. A blow dry costs €30 for hair below the shoulder and €24 above. 

If you’re really broke, Cheng Hair and Beauty Salon on Dame Street do blowdries from €12 and wash, cut, blow dries from €20 (I wouldn’t personally recommend them though!). 


Head to the Late Night Beauty Salon in Temple Bar, where you can get a lash tint for €12, an LVL lash lift for €70 and a full set of mink lash extensions for €100.


The pop-up salon in Penneys on Mary Street will do your make-up for just €20 and you can choose from five different looks. 


The lovely Skinfull Affairs on Exchequer Street does a botanical express facial for just 20 quid. 

It includes aromatic emulsion, cleansing, gommage exfoliation, toning, moisturising, and a relaxing head massage.

Skinfull Affairs


Our faves Tropical Popical charge €15 for a file and polish, or Sandy Nails on Aungier Street do the same for only a tenner. 


Wax in the City has two locations in Dublin: Liffey Street and South William Street.

You can get yourself a bikini wax for €20 and a lower leg wax for €25.


Top to Toe in Stoneybatter does a full pedicure for €37, or a toe shape and paint with cuticle tidy for €17. Bargain!
