Being high maintenance means placing a high premium on looking and feeling good. While high maintenance is sometimes used in a derogatory way, it's not necessarily a bad thing. If all of the celebs that we follow so avidly on social media stopped being high maintenance, we'd probably be disappointed.
Celebs use glamour to entertain us. Staying glam requires a lot of work, from hair and makeup to amazing clothes and accessories to spa treatments and trips to revered dermatologists and plastic surgeons.
Some non-celebs like to be glam, too. They embrace the high maintenance lifestyle to get the look that they like. What's wrong with that? Nothing. Every person is different. Some people just wouldn't feel like themselves, or feel happy, without their extensive (and sometimes expensive) personal maintenance routines. Others are able to do much less and still feel great about themselves.
