18 People Who Did Things Their Own Way and Didn’t Regret It

Have you ever tried to add up how much money you spend on your beauty routine? Beauty products, haircuts, manicures, pedicures... It seems like this list could go on forever. And we shouldn’t forget about clothes, because we have to replace them from time to time. It seems like the people from our article noticed this tendency and decided to do some of these procedures themselves.

We at Bright Side are really happy for people who can brilliantly do anything they try to do. At the end of the article, you’ll find a bonus that shows how ingenious people can be.
