For pampered paupers who missed out on the annual Spa Week--when many urban oases around town offer basic services for $50--there are a few spots where pretty can still come cheap. Those of us who like to stay plucked, painted and prettied without dipping into the 401k can do so at these SF spas that offer affordable services year round.

A quickie 25-minute Swedish or shiatsu massage may sound steep at $65, but the price includes all-day access to the steam room, sauna and communal baths (normally $20 for a weekday), making this a great mid-week relaxation destination.
A cut and style costs just $15 (or $20 for "creative services") at this SoMa teaching facility; basic color starts at $45 and many other discounted styling services are offered, too.
