(1) Your body hair will be a mess
The hair that grows on your legs? Those babies don’t remove themselves. And if you are blessed with a good hair growth down under, say goodbye to shaving, for it will take 8 hours and 25 razors to get the job done. So, unless you want your feet to rival a 90’s hero’s chest, walk to your nearest salon!
(2) Waxing at home is a pain
(3) Scissors, untrained hands and lush hair don’t go well together
You may think you can be adventurous and trim your hair yourself, or have someone do it for you. But the truth is that the more you cut your hair at home, the more you’ll need to visit a parlour. This is because hair has to be cut in a certain way so that it doesn’t cause split-ends, and slicing through a chunk of your hair absolutely does not achieve that. Moreover, there’s always the risk of your hair being cut unevenly. Hence, let professionals handle the job and put those scissors away!
Well, don’t get a cleanup on your face for a month and see them for yourself.
(5) Who will fix your eyebrows?
Okay, a messy haircut can be fixed, or at least amended with some beanies and scarves. Messily made eyebrows? Not so much. Getting even one hair out of place could ruin the entire line and give your eyebrows different shapes. Do you really want to pull a Cristina Yang and go eyebrow-less for a month?
(6) Your upper lip needs you…
… to get it cleaned. What it absolutely does not need is a moustache.
(7) No matter how long your hair is, it needs a trim
This owes to the fact that if you don’t get a trim in a month, your hair will start developing split ends, and after a while, won’t grow anymore.
(8) Facials are your skin’s best friend!
Everyone needs to pamper their skin with the love it deserves, and if this means a monthly trip to the parlour, so be it. The amount of dirt, grime and sweat that collects on your skin and is not washed off even with the harshest soap! In a month, it gets far too much to go unnoticed, and thus, it should have you book an appointment to the salon at the earliest!
(9) Who’s going to take care of your nails?
Your roommate may be good at manicures, but she cannot be as good as a professional. A professional, who can clean your nails properly before making them look shiny, pretty and new. A professional, who already has all the tools handy unlike you or your roommate who will have to raid the supermarket for the right filer. A professional, who knows nail art much, much better than any amateur could!
(10) You will miss out on all the treatments you may need
Every woman knows that while sitting in a parlour, she will be serenaded by the beautician with suggestions for her hair, her skin, or even the blackheads on her nose. It’s almost a rite of passage now, and all for good reasons. These suggestions may seem like money-weeding to the sceptics, but they are actually well-meaning, and will prove to be good for you if you give them a shot! However, at home, you will never know when your toenails need a pedicure until it’s 2 AM and you’re staring at your feet thinking you need to get them cleaned if you want to wear those perfect shows for the party tomorrow.
