Professional Electrologists to Me: Your Hair Isn’t THAT Bad!


So I went to a neighboring city, about an hour away, called Colonial Heights, VA.

It is where a small electrolysis school is located, one that I intend on attending soon.  I love that the school is quaint and small and more importantly, it’s one of the few schools that teaches electrolysis that is registered with the state of Virginia.

The lovely and friendly Mrs. Furrow took me around her facility, which was very cute! She even had some toys for my children to play with!

After talking business about my enrollment, I informed her that I am getting my first electrolysis appointment done this coming week, Tuesday actually. She was very happy for me, but informed me that if I signed up for the classes, there is a good chance that I go be a model for students to practice on under her supervision, for free! Even if I did not sign up for the classes, if I were to get services done there, I could volunteer for such services for free!

How cool would that be!?

She inspected my facial hair and informed me that my hair did not look that bad! The hairs are kind spread apart and very easy to see, making me a great model for students to work on (again, under her supervision!) Coming from an educated woman who has been doing this for years, that made me feel very good!

I look forward to getting free electrolysis done and performing it on others in my own small salon in Newport News, VA.

I chatted with my mom about it who didn’t have a problem with it, but kinda down played the idea, saying I should wait to attend the classes…..wait for what?! I am passionate about this, why not go for it while I can?!

I really look forward to being apart of this class and learning such a great skill that will change so many lives! I’m excited!
