Tell me where you’ve had your best facial ever?

I haven’t. I’ve never had a facial that blew me away where I’m like, “Girl, I have to go back to her!”

But isn’t that the irony of developing such a level of expertise? You think, “If I can’t get a facial as good as the one I give, why bother?”

Very true. A lot of estheticians come to me for facials. Some come to learn new techniques; some come because they really want the treatment. I don’t make it a point to visit estheticians in the same way; to be honest I feel nervous about what they’re going to do. I’ve dealt with so many people who have had facials and something has gone wrong. And I would hate as an esthetician to have something terrible happen to my face.

Our face is our billboard for what we do.
