Women have always had to suffer for beauty. But in recent years, it’s gotten worse. Jeez, between the waxing, exfoliation, and microdermabrasion, it’s a miracle you have any skin left at all. Katherine Coleman, aesthetician extraordinaire, can help take some of the sting out of your beauty regimen. Your mission, should you choose to accept it: to rally together some friends and get ready for a few hours of primping. Her mission: to service all of you while you chat, gossip, and, heck, maybe even throw back a few margaritas (that oughta lessen the pain). Katherine offers waxing and facials that include skin analysis, steaming, deep pore cleansing, exfoliation, mask, and massage (scalp, face, neck, shoulders, and hands). She also has oodles of different peels and does microdermabrasion. Plus, she uses only natural, medical-grade products, so you can sleep through the night free of guilt. And it’s all done in the presence of your pals, which makes this a bit more bearable. Because beauty may be painful, but misery loves company.
