When I wax my clients, it is always on a white towel with paper on the table. The paper is for sanitary reasons and a nice barrier so I don’t drip wax on the towel or table. As I wax my clients, they are often put in various “yoga” positions so I can easily see the hairs and efficiently remove them. I often tell the clients that even though the position is uncomfortable for them to be in, it is the least painful since their skin is taut (without me having to hold anything) and they are so busy holding the position and worrying about not kicking me that they often forget what is happening. Not to mention, it is better than being on all fours with your tush in the air. The first time I was waxed down there, I was told to get on all fours. I’m not sure what was more shocking…that I had my ass in the air in someone’s face OR that I had hair there too! Anyway, I asked this one girl to put her knees to her ears, yoga position number two. As she did, I turned to grab a wax stick and paper. When I turned back to face her, I noticed two twigs on the white paper…..I didn’t put them there. The twigs were the size of bobby pins! Trying not to make a face or acknowledge them, I quickly waxed her and picked up the sticks with my waxed paper to toss in the garbage. All I could think of the rest of the procedure and wanted to ask her was, “did someone tell you that you had a stick up your butt today? If so, I think your good now.” After I got home I tried to tell my family the story…they would not believe me. Good thing I saved the twigs on the waxed paper strip.
Speaking of yoga position number two….in yoga class I heard it called the “wind release” position, Note to self, do not make your client laugh while in this position. Yes, it happens
