Best Bets Daily: Friday

Triple Threat

Posted July 8, 2005
When it comes to manicures and pedicures, I’m a do-it-yourself kind of girl—why spend thirty dollars when you can spend five? But even I couldn’t resist this amazing deal from Salon A-K-S, where special mani-pedi combinations with herbal soaks or exfoliation come packaged with a free blowout. Even a DIY junkie like me can justify the extra pampering, especially with the summer heat making sandals—and non-frizzy hair—a necessity. The offer is available through Labor Day, and saves about $100 altogether—that just about covers a round-trip Jitney ticket to Southampton, where perfect nails and hair are, of course, a must.

$100-$150 at Salon A-K-S, 689 Fifth Ave., at 54th St., 212-888-0707;
