Just when we think we’ve heard everything comes proof that we are oh so wrong. A story in this month’s Philadelphia Magazine tips us to the latest trend in grade school beauty care: facials, mani/pedis and bikini waxes. Here’s an excerpt from Carrie Denny’s story:
After years in the beauty biz, Engle had seen her share of crazy ladies demanding perfect, Glamour-cover-worthy brows. But this Crazy Lady wasnâ€™t talking about her own brows. The brows in question belonged to Crazy Ladyâ€™s daughter. Who was eight.
After sweating through the kidâ€™s eyebrow wax, Engle, today an aesthetician at the Adolf Biecker Salon/Spa outposts in the Rittenhouse Hotel and Strafford â€” and, it should be noted, one of the most sought-after eyebrow specialists in the region â€” was directed to give her pint-size client a â€¦ bikini wax…
â€śBut â€¦ thereâ€™s nothing there, right?â€ť I ask Engle (later). â€śI mean, at eight? Am I forgetting something?â€ť
â€śNope,â€ť she says. â€śThereâ€™s not. Doesnâ€™t matter. Thatâ€™s when the mothers are starting them these days.â€ť
