Beauty, Massage, Pedicure, and Manicure Appointments versus Doctor Appointments
By Susie Ellis
After a weekend in Daytona at “Bike Week,” (my contribution to our marriage) am back at my desk. As soon as Peter sends me some photos of us on his Boss Hoss motorcycle I will post them. It did actually turn out to be a lot of fun.
In the meantime an article in Hospitality Trends this morning caught my attention. It is called “Physical Attractiveness in the Workplace” by Eddy M.Elmer and Jim Houran.
As much as I may not like everything I am reading in this article, I think those of us in the health and beauty world will recognize that these findings explain a lot about why people pursue beauty so intensely. As they say, a woman is more likely to cancel her doctor appointment than her hair appointment. For better or for worse, here are some paragraph headings which may entice you to read the entire article.
