What your beautician is REALLY thinking when she sees you naked: Therapist answers the question thousands of women are thinking during a treatment
- A beauty therapist in Sydney has shared an eye opening post about her industry
- Elise VonTea from Quality Lashes spoke about how people react around her
- They apologise for being ‘ugly’ when they remove their clothes in front of her
- She insisted that no beautician is judging their body while doing their job
A beautician has detailed what she thinks of her clients when they are naked during a routine wax or spray tan after noticing a lot of her clients spoke negatively of themselves.
The owner of Quality Lashes in Sydney, Elise VonTea, shared an inspirational post that addressed some of the common concerns people have about beauty therapists ‘judging’ their bodies while being plucked, tinted or waxed.
‘I do eyelash extensions, brows and spray tanning because it’s nice to pamper someone and make them feel extra beautiful,’ the 37-year-old wrote on Facebook.

‘But sadly I hear it in all of these areas. Women thinking they are ugly without makeup, without lashes, without a tan, without filler or Botox and that they are now old or fat.’
Ms VonTea said people often apologise for their appearance and complain about how ‘ugly’ they are, and she hears it countless times a day.
Beauticians, doctors and professionals have seen it all. They don’t look at you and judge you.
But despite grievances with their own bodies, she doesn’t perceive them in the same light.
‘I see women and men who are short, tall, young and older, big and small,’ she said.
‘People who have lost weight and gained weight. Women who have carried babies in their bellies, women whose boobs don’t sit up high like they did at 15, men and women who have scarring, stretch marks, loose skin, men and women who have lots of body hair and women who have none.’

She said all they’re thinking when they look at you is that this is a nice person and that is their body.
‘I know I may sound like someone that’s just trying to be nice and positive or some crap but I really mean it when I say you are not ugly,’ she said.
She went on to say that we don’t look at our friends and judge them the way we judge ourselves, and that’s exactly what our beautician is thinking.
‘Also young people under 35 please realise you are in the prime of your youth and beauty,’ she said.

‘When you get older you’ll realise that you literally wasted all this time thinking you were ugly, when in actuality you were beautiful, healthy, able, with young skin, a full head of hair and even though you probably wanted to be slimmer, you actually looked amazing.’
While Ms VonTea by no means endorses perfection she would like people to stop looking inwardly at their own insecurities and instead turn to see what they can do outwardly.
‘Get out there, get busy, do something to get out of your head and into the lives of others with your kind heart and helping hand,’ she said.
‘It will bring you much joy and leave little time to think about what’s wrong with you, cause you’re actually pretty god damn special.’
Elise’s clientele responded with gusto and loved her body positive message, saying that all their fears about judgement in the clinician’s room was pointless.
