When you’re giving a client a facial behind one curtain, but you can still hear everything that’s happening behind all the other curtains,* here’s a conversation you don’t want to overhear:
Beauty U Student #1: Why are you on all fours?
Beauty U Student #2: That’s how they did it on the video!
Miss Jenny (sticking her head behind their curtain): What’s going on? Why is she kneeling like that?
Beauty U Student #2: Is this going to hurt?
Miss Jenny: The skin back there is much less sensitive than you’d think. You won’t feel a thing.
Beauty U Student #1 (hushed tones): Oh my God, what is that?
Miss Jenny: Someone get me the tea tree oil…You really shouldn’t be picking at that.
I’m sorry, dear readers, to ruin any illusions you might have had, but there is just nothing pretty about learning to wax, Brazilian-style.
*The Beauty U spa isn’t big enough to have separate treatment rooms, so we work in little curtained areas, sort of like a hospital ER, but with a “Music of the Rainforest” soundtrack.
