My youngest daughter, Nature Girl, turned 12 in June. Since she was away at Girl Scout camp over her birthday, I gave her the choice of having a party or a "Day of Beauty" after she returned home from camp. Thank goodness she opted for the "Day of Beauty". I did not want to deal with having yet another teen party after my oldest daughter's birthday party the early part of June.
So, it was off to the local Beauty School where I planned for Nature Girl and her gal friend to have a complete hair and nails makeover. The Beauty School seemed the perfect place. Afterall, their prices were right up my alley. A hair cut & style, manicure and pedicure cost me a whopping $23 bucks! At the Beauty School, students get to "practice" on real customers before they become licensed beauticians. They offer pretty much every beauty service you can think of from skin care to waxing to hair color! You really can't beat it, especially if you have alot of time on your hands. Since the students are learning and they want to do a good job, it takes a
little lot of extra time for them to complete the services.
Four hours later, and I mean a whole 4 hours later, the Beauty School released my beautiful birthday girl and her gal friend all done up with fancy hair and nails!
I'm not so sure they would agree that it was worth the 4 hours of pampering. Even though they loved their new look, it was a bit too long to sit. Good thing I promised them
lunch dinner at McDonald's and shopping at the mall! They were famished and they needed a new outfit to go with their new look!
