My mother-in-law has a waxing business out of her home.
Every so often a group of girls will come over and disappear into her crafting room, where she has a daybed. About an hour later they'll emerge, happily piling money into my mother-in-law's hands.
Personally, I find it kind of weird that they go in groups. I don't imagine that they're all getting their eyebrows waxed, which is the only kind of waxing I'd be comfortable letting others see me do. Do they not mind their friends watching someone rip their mustache off? Or worse, seeing them spread eagled for a Brazilian? And I know for a fact, because I stupidly asked, that the latter is the most common type of waxing she does.
I also find the whole AT HOME SPA CARE thing fascinating. There are lots of actual spas and salons to go to in Santos, but it's equally as common to just go to someone's house. Or have them come to yours. I'm totally on board with not having to get out of my pajamas for a manicure or hair cut, or going to someone's house for a massage. But waxing? NO FRICKIN WAY.
I seriously can't get over this whole waxing in the craft room thing! (Though I think if she has a designated area it would be different. Maybe?)
Regardless, it's pretty obvious that I will not be getting waxed in the craft room. Something Gilberto learned the hard way. The first time we came here, he suggested I let her wax ME. I made it pretty clear that not only was I a bit creeped out by a his mother's room of many uses, she wasn't going ANYWHERE near my nether regions.
