“I was waxing a guest, a fairly large woman, for a Brazilian bikini service and towards the end of the service during the butt-strip portion, I had the guest lift her knees to her chest and at that moment a spider crawled from out of her buttocks. Needless to say, I was mortified. I flung the spider to the floor, stepped on it and continued to complete the service without mentioning a word to the guest. I have had many experiences as an esthetician, but this is the experience that stands out among the rest.”—Demetria Richardson, esthetician (Los Angeles, CA)
