20+ Girls That Don’t Need New Clothes and Beauty Salons to Look Stunning

Have you ever counted the amount of money you spend on your appearance? Your clothes, hair, nails — all these costs add up. But the people from this article prove that it’s possible to spend way less on these things if you try and make something yourself.

We at Bright Side were amazed by the talents of these people. Some of them took a risk and even made their own wedding dresses. And at the end of the article, there are 2 bonuses for you: a cat that loves the thing her owner made, and a photo of a wedding ring made by the groom.

“My beaded crochet bag. It is made of 20,000 beads, each of them is crocheted on. It took 80 hours of work, but it was worth it.”

“Super easy at-home hair I did on myself today!”

“Volume is my new love. I actually wanted to make a dress but I didn’t have enough fabric, so I made a blouse.”

“After not being able to find a nail salon in Boston that does sculpted acrylics using forms instead of tips, I started doing them myself at home. It’s French ombré using a light pink glitterish base and the usual white.”

“I made shorts... With pockets!! All by myself”

“Did my own hair for my wedding using a regular curling iron.”

“I finally finished knitting this top and now I don’t know where to wear it. It is so bright that I’m not confident enough to put it on.”

“Mustard crochet bag for the upcoming autumn season”

“Polymer clay monstera earrings: Many people are asking me to make these for them.”

“Made this hoodie for home. I learned how from YouTube videos.”

“3 months ago I paid $90 for nails that I didn’t like and for services I didn’t request. Since then I told myself I will do my own nails.”

“I made this tropical set. All I want to wear now are clothes with natural prints.”

“I planned on making space jewelry and they came out looking like nebulas. I’m currently located in Japan where resin jewelry is pretty mainstream.”

“Saw this fabric and had to have it, so I made this cocktail dress to wear to an upcoming wedding.”

“Leather bags I made for my mom and aunt. All done by hand! The large one took around 20 hours, and the small one a bit less.”

“I did my own bridesmaid’s hair and I think it came out pretty fancy!”

“First time trying French nails and I designed them myself.”

“Made a neoprene dress for a fall wedding. I wanted something classy and bold, but didn’t want to overtake the bride.”

“I made this dress with pockets. I was able to put my phone and charger there and nobody noticed a thing.”

“Just finished my Valentino-inspired dress. First time doing a collar, shirt cuffs, and a button placket!”

“I was a bridesmaid at my friend’s wedding yesterday and I was nervous when I heard we had to do our own hair, but I was very happy with how it turned out!”

“I saw the yarn and just knew I needed to be able to wear it!”

“Made my own wedding dress! Almost entirely made by hand!”

Bonus № 1: “It was just my hobby to make jewelry. Just look at me now: I made this ring for my fiancée.”

Bonus № 2: “I crocheted a cheeseburger and my cat loves it so much.”

What do you do? Do you do your own hair and makeup or do you go to beauty salons?
