I hate going to a parlor or a salon. If you are getting a haircut, they try to get you to color your hair, or perm it, or buy one of their ridiculously expensive care products. So I decided I shall grow my hair out and see how long I can go without a cut. I have long stopped getting facials at a parlor and do them at home instead. Waxing is something I shall never ever get used to, so going to a parlor for that was out too. Eyebrows however are another story. Since I was going for my BIL’s wedding, I had gotten my eyebrows done, and at that visit I acted like I was in so much of a hurry that the girl at the parlor did not have time to ask me if I wanted anything else. Today when I went back to get my eyebrows done again, I forgot about my in a hurry trick. This is what happened:
Eyebrow Girl(EG): Ma’am have you been here before?
Me: yeah I came about a month back to get my eyebrows done.
EG: Do you want to get your upper lip threaded as well?
Me: No, only the eyebrows please.
EG: Oh, OK (gives my upper lip a hard, long look)
After some time, when she is almost done with eyebrows
EG: Do you want to get a facial cleanup done? You seem to have a lot of black heads…….
Me: Umm…..no thanks.
EG: we are offering a discount on your gold facial too, your skin won’t look so dead anymore…..
Me: No, it’s ok. I am fine.
EG: Ok ma’am, as you wish. What about a haircut? You have too many split ends…
Me: No, it’s ok.
I was done and was at the front desk paying.
Front desk girl(FDG): Ma’am do you want to buy some of our skincare products? This serum here ma’am, it will clean up your dead skin cells and make it glow.
Me: No no, I just want to pay for the eyebrows and leave. Actually I am in a hurry, I have a meeting in 10 minutes!
FDG: Ok ma’am…..(stares at my skin and hair)!
Why didn’t I remember to say that I was in a hurry? It almost always works!
