    I think she meant she is visiting the salon for a treatment, not to work there!

    Where did I say I *worked* in a salon?

    In fact, considering the amount of crap going on at the moment in my company... I would love to work in a Salon... I love my stylist....

    But no, I'm just getting acrylic infills done...

    ETA: Thankyou FenFen :D

    Euuuuwwwww, Ive never understood this nail fetish :D Do you have those fake plastic thingies stuck on? Weird *shaky head look*

    Having said that Ive been thinking about getting a wig, I quite fancy having totally different hair styles each day! :D Theyr expensive though, even on ebay :(

    Plastic thingies?


    :mad: :mad: :mad:

    Good heavens no...

    I never used to have false nails due to the martial arts / body building stuff... kinda crap if you can't punch someone properly or if you have problems gripping things...

    However every so often, when I need to have my photo taken (think: graduation ;)) I want my hands to look nice.. not builders hands, nor stumpy hands, like a stump like person...

    Sooo I get acrylic nails... they stick on a very small bit of plastic but use powder and water to create the acrylic stuff (no MMA) and brush it on... It looks more fake than gel, but lasts longer than 24 hours - first and only time I tried gel nails, 3 of them broke off within the first day! :(

    I'm not a girly girl... I own one handbag, no high heels and bum around in trainers and jeans... but every so often I just like my hands to look nice... plus it's kinda fun to wander down there with a mate and spend an hour chatting - trust me, there are less weird looks given to you walking into a nail salon than there are when you walk into a computer book store and ask for books on C++ programming - the bloke looked at me as if I had got lost :(

    Not really into wigs... I've got some hair so that's good enough for me ... you ever looked into 'bonding' though (no, not bondage for all you dirty minds!)... I think I might try that next month with purple bits :D

    I came in to this thread with some pithy remark to make about Jessops - and am confronted with fake nails and purple hair... :D

    Do you not have any desire to join us? :D

    New waxing techniques? (sod that for a lark, but some people seem to want to put themselves through pain..)

    Did you know there are apparantly handbags costing £5,000 out there called 'Hermes' or something like that? my friends friend has some and says they are a good investment :D

    You could buy 50 Billingham bags for that! :eek:

    Waxing is for morons; anyone who doesn't know that hot wax and flesh are never meant to meet deserves what they get.

    Most girlie thing I do is go to the hairdresser once every three months, and have my hair cut and coloured. And I do paint my nails; though that chips off in no time due to evil housework. :mad:

    Jeans, trainers, t-shirts are my usual. Pointless getting too dolled up when I'm in up to my ears in children, toys, laundry and God knows what else everyday!

    £5k for herpes?

    Yes Im one of those people who thinks "shall I wash my hair today" and is usually answered on the basis of whether Im actually going to meet anyone of interest before I go to bed again :eek: Sainsburys is not a reason to wash my hair.

    Waxing is something I have never done in my life and never intend to. My legs are unlikely to see the light of day anyway, so I dont see why they should care what hairstyle they have :D

    I'm the same.. to a point.. however I do tend to steal the boyfriends razor blades (we both have a Mach 3 turbo as female razors are crap)

    However, shaving legs only happens for my benefit as my legs never see the light of day either..

    My ex moaned as I didn't shave every single day (he was a porn obsessed idiot so I was always pressured to look like the women in pornos :( - hence why he's an ex) and I refused point blank... unless he shaved - equality and all that, he shaves his legs every day... I'll shave mine.

    He tried to call my bluff and spent the next week being driven mad with the scratching as the hair grew back and never, ever moaned at me about that again...

    I've never waxed... it looks painful.... /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Ah me too. He always whines that if I use them too 'they run out quicker', like duh!!!! :D Logic being strong point number? Yeah if you shaved your face twice a day theyd run out faster than once a day too... Point being? If we had 2 separate ones he'd whine about which one was his anyhoo... *rolls eyes*

    Anyhoo, As I shave my legs once, maybe twice a week on a good month?

    Heh heh :cool:

    When we were first dating... he was shaving his face in the morning and had loads of shaving foam on his face... I knocked, he said come in and I thought 'Hahaha, this could be fun'

    Cue me, clearing my throat and standing by him and sticking loads of shaving foam on my face and picking up a disposable razor.

    OH MY GOD.. even now I'm sniggering as the look of horror on his face... and I said 'what? don't tell me you didn't know women shave their faces as well?'

    I then wiped it all off and continued to laugh so hard I was nearly sick.

    Poor boyfriend, he suffers greatly :(

    Anyone remember that sci-fi series on TV a long time ago about a rabies outbreak in Britain?

    Well, I thought it would be funny, during a 'comfort' break, to put shaving foam round my mouth and then just come back quietly into the room and wait until SWMBO noticed.....

    Well it was funny to me..... :D

    Even the non shavers among you ladies seem to shave more often than me!

    FTR, on the VERY rare occasions that I do scrape the growth of the front of my head, I steal HER razors!! Although these days she uses one of those depilator things rather than wax strips or a razor. Once my face has remembered what happens when it sees the sun (and feels the steel!), it soon decides that hiding behind the fuzz is a far better option - not to mention far fairer on the populace at large!

    No it's not. Mine used to get waxed every week when I was racing.

    Hasn't been done for many years you'll be glad to know.

    Although the girlfriend waxed my back a few months ago! That was on a Sunday and by the Thursday the air was growing back :D

    Snap - I'm clean shaven at the moment but give it a week or so and the beard'll be back! At least it hides half of my ugly mush!
