I got my hair cut this week; It was way past time. I was once again at that cut it or let it grow stage, cut it won, again. The battle will rage on, as it always does. I think I want to let it grow, then as the weeks stretch and the hair begins to look like I’ve given up, I cave and have it all trimmed. It is evident, I am at war with my hair. Typically, when I get my hair done I also ask the stylist to wax my eyebrows. I’ve been doing it for years. This time, I’d went someplace new, a local day spa. Apparently, day spas have different rules about things like that, and waxing is not on the stylists to do list. No, you need a separate appointment with an Esthetician. I made an appointment, and went back today for an eyebrow wax, or so I thought. I lay on the table, which is much more comfortable than sitting in a chair and having your head tilted backwards over the shampoo sink while the wax is slathered onto your skin, and ripped off before you have a chance to declare that it’s too hot. As Dora, the technician hovers over my eyebrows, she asks if I want to do anything else. I tell her sure could you take care of my chin hairs. Don’t laugh, I assure you if you don’t have this problem yet, you will! The next thing I know hot wax is applied from the tip of my chin to my Adams apple. I clutched onto the sides of the table knowing I was in for some serious pain. I was right! Just when I thought the worse was over Dora calmly said “we got rid of the beard, how about making the mustache go away too? I looked at her with tear-filled eyes, not because she said I had a mustache, but because I was still feeling the pain from the removal of my beard, and said, “if we must,” to which Dora smiled and reached for the wax. If I thought the chin was bad nothing had prepared me for the pain of ripping hair, which I had not seen, ripped from my upper lip. I must admit, when my hand flew to my mouth for comfort it did, in fact, feel smoother. Of course, that could just be because I’d lost an entire layer of skin along with the mustache. In an attempt at making small talk I asked her what else she did besides waxing faces. She smiled sweetly and said I do whole body waxing. I jumped from the table and said we’re done here to which she said okay, see you in five weeks! #over50 #joysofgrowingold #whatwomando! #Waxing
