After 650 hours working on the general public, I am now considered a “senior” student of cosmetology. HOW wonderful. lol, anyway my experiences are becoming quite interesting as the hours roll on, the weeks, the months. Thank goodness I’m half way through the program. I’m beginning to see a few patterns in the way people view their stylists.
First and foremost, and most entertainingly.. people have few limits when it comes to discussing their personal lives with you. Whether you’re lathering their head at the shampoo bowl or slicing through their locks, they’ll spill it.
The other day I had a young woman tell me about her menstral cycle. Oh and of course the stories of their husbands habbits, stories of heartache and pain.. births and zits. New clothes, mental disorders, you name it! Ahh the life of a stylist. And I’m only a student! I can’t imagine owning my own place someday, how interesting lol.
I’ll gush more later. I think I’m getting carpel tunnel :/
