How to trim your hair and tan it back?
Aussie tanning salon owner, Trina Leitch, said she had a client in her 30s who wanted to try a spa-type experience but had never done it before.
“She was really concerned that I was going to have to do it on her body because of her body shape,” Ms Leitch said.
“I told her, ‘You know, I’m a bodybuilder, I’ve always had a lot of body fat, but I’ve never done anything like this on my body.
It’s really important for women to get their hair and nails trimmed properly’.”‘
It’s really exciting’For Ms Leitt, a yoga instructor and self-described “skinny woman” who has “grown a lot in the last six months” and has a small family, it was her first time at a spa.
“The experience was really exciting, I had a ton of questions and it was really relaxing,” she said.
Ms Leitt said she liked that she could take her body back to her own style, which was “really refreshing”.
“I think it’s a bit of a stretch to say it’s going to work for everyone,” she added.
Ms Kowal and her husband Dave Kowalski from Warrnambool, Victoria, had been going to the spa twice a week since June and had never had a spa experience before.
They wanted to see if there was anything new to try.
“It was really good.
The staff were really helpful,” Mr Kowaling said.
They started at the Spa of the World in Perth, and it took three hours to complete the two-hour treatment.
The spa’s head of customer service said it was the most popular spa in the country.
“We’ve seen a lot more women over the last couple of years, it’s definitely a trend,” she told ABC News.
“There are some really, really talented women at the spa who are just doing it for fun, and I think the trend is catching on, and we’re seeing more and more women wanting to try it.”
She said the spa had been inundated with inquiries since the ABC reported the story, and had had to hire extra staff to help handle the surge in customers.
The business owner has since started charging $60 a session for those who have a body mass index (BMI) over 25.
She said it took a few days for the body fat to go away after the spa was open.
“When you’re looking at your body and looking at the scale, you can really tell the difference,” she explained.
Ms Leeitt said her body was “not going to look any different than it is now” once she got to the end of her treatment.
“You can’t really tell that it’s over, because the weight hasn’t really gone away,” she noted.
“So, there’s nothing really that has changed.”
