The Beauty Salon With a Bed

Dear Hotel maids worldwide,

I have a confession to make. When you find mysteriously stained hotel towels in rooms you are cleaning, I probably was the guest that stayed there. I like to use my layover hotel rooms as super secret beauty parlors. Today I am rejuicing my hair color, and what better way to occupy the 10 minutes of 'soak' time than blog about it?

I suspect I am not alone in this, nor is this limited to hair coloring. I have given myself facials, epilated, waxed , manicured as well as cut my hair in the hotel bathrooms.  Not only does this preserve my supply of pristine white towels at home, but it keeps these super secret beauty activities away from the gentlemen friends. For all they know, I am born with  this shiny hair color, with smooth legs and dewy complexioned.  (Some little lies are harmless, no?)

Seriously, how many salons always have time to fit you in, provide you with a television and bed to amuse you , and are absolutely free? Please crew, confirm I am not alone in frequenting Salon de Hotel Room....

Yes! I have exfoliated, cut hair (pre 9-11, of course), & mani/pedi's. One thing I will NEVER do, though, is take a bubble bath. Something about soaking in a tub where hundreds of strangers have been in really just grosses me out.

You are definitely not alone;-)

You're definitely not alone. While not a crew member, I find that the time spent in hotel rooms is one of the few quiet times that I get to attend to beauty rituals like haircoloring.

I would like to think that hotels throw away the stained towels...

You are SO not alone!! One of the biggest pleasures of a long layover in a not-so-exciting-city!

For sure you're not alone, babe! I always turn my hotel room into a personal spa. It's probably the best part of any layover!
