Which one are you?
Leave it to the internet to spit out memes that perfectly sum up life as a beauty therapist in a completely inane way that reminds us not to take ourselves too seriously. Which, let’s face it – is what we all need on a Friday, when our non BT friends are celebrating the end of the week and we’re only just preparing for the onslaught of hell. So, what type of therapist are you?
1. The proud one.
Otherwise known as the recent beauty college graduate who is bursting with enthusiasm and ready to go forth and change the world, one manicure at a time.
2. The pissed off one.
Also recognised as the BT with a knack for making the world’s most passive aggressive appointment bookings.
3. The passionate one.
The beauty therapist who is just a little too excited about her job. Also regularly heard saying, “Oh my God, have you guys tried this new cleanser that just came in? It is like magic!”
4. The sarcastic one.
Also known as the beauty therapist who has done away with client pleasantries in favour of hard truths, she can often be heard saying, “Honey, if you don’t start taking your makeup off before bed your face is going to turn into a pizza.”
5. The jaded one.
Otherwise recognised as the BT who has been in her job about ten years too long.
6. The realistic one.
This therapist likes her job, but is also realistic about the fact being a BT isn’t always a big ol’ pile of discount beauty products and fun makeovers.
7. The burnt out one.
Otherwise known as the BT who looks like she could do with taking some of her own beauty advice, stat.
8. The fun one.
This beauty therapist is the most likely staff member to flash you a wink when a hot client walks in, or bust out her dance moves when the salon is empty.
9. The dedicated one.
Also known as the beauty therapist who lies awake at night thinking of all the brows she could fix if she only had more time.
And finally of course, there’s perception versus reality…
