The thing I love about my school is the way they just toss you out there. Not without a bit of assistance, but nonetheless…I’m getting some experience. Day three. It feels like weeks. So today I waxed armpits. Who’da thunk it? Lynn has that friend who had her armpits electrocuted…But waxing? Regularly? Sounds like, totally painful.
But get your shirt off, get the robe on and let me at ’em. Cause I’m gonna be a professional (soon). She only bled a tiny bit and didn’t squeal, so I think I did okay.
Then Alisha peeked her head in and said “Tracy, eyebrow tint at 12:30”. Like I’m on the books or something. Whoa. So I tinted some eyebrows. THAT was fun. And she loved ’em. Score. Two down.
How many more victims can I lure in???
LEGS! They take FOREVER to wax. Zowie. But very satisfying because they are soooo sleek afterwards. Sweet!
Oh dear. Number THREE!
“Tracy! Lip wax!”
Can I say crap? I mean can I just say crap? Because nothing hurts quite as bad as a lip wax. Not that I know, but I’ve seen the little tears dribbling afterwards. Prolly just a natural stinging reaction, but still…. Okay, I’m just gonna say crap.
I totally brace myself. YOU ARE A PROFESSIONAL WITH THREE DAYS EXPERIENCE. YOU CAN DO THIS.
So I greet the client (who is very lovely and older and I wonder – can I keep the skin taut? will the wrinkles cause me issue? is her skin more delicate? will it lift??? OMG CRAP CRAP CRAP!), take her back with Alisha and the client says “Is this your first lip wax”. I sooo cannot tell a lie. “I’ve waxed before, but yes…this is my first lip wax”. I thought she was going to leap right off the table. She didn’t. She even asked for more – so I did her eyebrows too.
Dang! My very first off the street client that wasn’t a student or related to a student…
Then I took a break and Alisha did my nails. Then we had coffee. I mean, this school thing. Its so…super fun 🙂
