3 lies your beautician tells you

05 May 2014, 21:51

Abuja - You trust her with your wrinkles, your nether regions and the knots in your back; the woman knows you as intimately as your partner, but we guarantee she's still keeping a few trade secrets from you…

LIE: Noooo, it doesn’t hurt at all
Everyone has a different pain threshold and beauty therapists have seen it all, from the man who bawled like a baby at a tingling facial to the mom who went full Hollywood without a flinch. Can you really blame your beautician for relaying the more positive feedback she’s received in an attempt to reassure you?

LIE: Runny nose, toe jam? Oh I don’t mind at all
We all like a clean workspace, and beauty therapists are no exception. Just because yours is too professional to show any signs of repulsion at your foot odour during a pedi or your sniffing during a lip wax, doesn’t mean the letters FML aren’t flying through her mind. Show her a little respect and clean up before you leave the house.

LIE: No the dad from next door doesn’t get his back waxed here
We go through all kinds of awkward situations with our beauty therapists, and the reason we trust them enough to strip down to our birthday suit is because of their discretion. You wouldn’t want her telling your bestie (because of course you go to the same salon) about that little patch of facial hair that’s sprouted up lately, so don’t expect her to dish the dirt on what her other clients are getting up to.
