This morning bright and early, a client came in and looked a little more down than her usual self. Something about the beauty barn allows people the opportunity to spill it. Get it out!  Because we all know… What happens in the beauty barn stays in the beauty barn. She shared that her husband’s mother had passed away recently after a long battle of cancer, and to be honest they both had been drinking too much ever since.  A little too much escaping. After tears and hugs and that all too sudden smack of reality, it was time to get to waxing.  Her head pounding, my head eager to get that pubic hair gone. With one pull of the wax strip, she broke the quiet with an OH MY GOD! I pressed the skin, sheepishly applied more wax and said, “Have you forgot about your hangover?” Ha! We laughed and laughed. The sweet release of laughter. Then it started… the marketing slogans. “Kara’s Beauty Barn – where you go to forget you hangovers”.  “Kara’s Beauty Barn – where you go to get your hair ripped out and forget about your problems”. Oh the possibilities. Funny moment in the midst of a tough time for her. Thankful for some laughter.
