In-Home Visits with Felipe and Isabella
In LA, the rain throws a wrench in most people's plans, but not for Beauty Bus. This morning, Beauty Professionals Elena and Alyssa packed their car with Bags of Beauty and zipped up their raincoats, determined to bring some sunshine to those in need on a rainy day.
Their first client of the day, Felipe, has been with Beauty Bus for nearly two years. Usually Felipe receives a haircut while his mother and caretaker, Juana, enjoys a manicure, but today Felipe is savoring all the pampering himself. "This is the fun part... it feels really nice to get my hands done." Alyssa deftly buzzes Felipe's hair, while Elena massages his hands, chatting with his mother in Spanish about her recent trip to Panama. Felipe's family sits in and joins the conversation, as the ladies work their magic.
Before the session wraps, Elena checks in with Felipe to ask how the scalp and oil treatment she recommended on their last visit is helping with the dryness he's been experiencing. A freshly cut head of hair and smooth, manicured hands will certainly aid in his routine. Our Beauty Professionals pack up, say their goodbyes, leave a Bag of Beauty filled with products for Felipe, and head out for their second visit of the day: Isabella, for a facial and a manicure.
The rehab center where Isabella is staying is bustling with activity. But the background noise seems to fade away as our Beauty Professionals set up to begin services, and the rain outside continues to fall even harder. "Feels good," Isabella murmurs, as Alyssa gently massages a calming mask along her temples. Isabella is pure Zen as she relishes in the pampering. Her eyes close and the ladies work silently, not wanting to disturb her peaceful moment.
As Elena applies the second coat of bright pink nail polish Isabella picked out, Alyssa packs up their equipment and sets aside a Bag of Beauty for her. As the services conclude, Isabella's eyes flutter open, and a smile spreads across her glowing face. Another happy client.
