beauty salon - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Being with other girls is to have the company of those who see you as a full human being with all potential, emotions and intellect. It releases feelings of positive self worth and mental wellness that can last for some time. Such experiences enable us to keep on giving to our children, lovers and family. So while social time with men is great and enjoyable, the spas and beauty salons give us somewhere to truly relax and revel in being both feminine and strong.
The massages at the beauty salon keep me out of the osteopaths surgery and help me to remain as a good mother. Once a month, especially as a single mom, I need someone to take care of me. As a person who works from home I need some human contact. Some go to the pub to relax or perhaps out to a club to dance, yet I (and many women) prefer beauty treatments as part of socialising and keeping positive mental health. Beyond being a positive space for women, this industry is how many women support their families. So let us see our beauty parlours en par with restaurants and other places people meet.
The beauty salon is such a calm space that the tension within me evaporates as soon as I enter through the double doors. It as if my inner warmth glows a little brighter and sends the negativity away of its own accord. It is the start of my strength renewing, of being allowed to reenter the cocoon once more before being expected to show butterfly wings once more.
The beauty salon, with its aroma of flowers, with the pink and feminine touches, feels akin to a hug from a beloved sister as soon as I enter.
The beauty salon is where I can remember that I am a person too, that my needs are real needs, and it's okay to take care of myself too. Sometimes women need permission to seek self care and time for themselves to stay healthy. If we don't care for the carers, if we don't support the supporters, where will society go?
