‘A VISIT TO THE BEAUTY SALON’ – How many of you can relate this ?

Hello beautiful ladies out there ! All of you want to look our best, a part of our lives has always been revolving round the many ways to look beautiful. Presenting a small snippet, an experience I hope many of you can relate with…waiting to hear more from each of you …

Couple of months gone by and my beauty seems to dip a shade;

A glance in the mirror is no more making me smile I’m afraid

Wind, dust and lack of pampering has made my skin dim;

Family and work have kept me occupied until the brim

Finally one day, I muster the courage to say- Come on!

It’s time to get pampered and knock the doors of my salon.


Never miss real stories from India's women.

Greeted with smile so warm and fragrance to enthrall;

Enticed with a service list from head to toe that had it all

Hair spas , pedicure , manicure, highlights & streaks;

Keratin , straightening, detan, root touch up and what not oh freaks!

Facial is all I want this day to relax I decide

A gown and headband was in no time placed by my side.


Sinking in heavenly glory as my face was massaged and rubbed

I could feel the dead cells flee as my face was being scrubbed;

With perfumed creams and strokes so soothing on my face

Time stood still as my nerves felt relaxed in this space;

Only then did I realize that I had gone to into a slumber

Thanks to the pack on my face that rested as cool as cucumber.


Finally done, I get up feeling fresh with skin so radiant

Admiring thyself knowing this glow is but transient ;

Handed to me now is a towel to give my face a final wipe

The quirky girl convinces me hard to take a beauty package in a swipe;

“ Hair is dry, roots have splits your true beauty I’ll help you find”

“ Call when there’s a discount”  my number I leave behind.


Finally..  Its late and as two hours have flown

Missed calls from home as I see on my phone;

No doubt I love my supple skin –  now so fresh and new

But I’m also the woman of today , life with confidence I pursue;

The essence of true beauty is not in a facial mode

True charm of a lady is reflected in her beautiful soul !
