Beauty therapists: how to cope when a long-standing client dies

Harriet Maylin, owner of Total Looks in Harpenden, commented: “It’s always heart-breaking. After nearly 40 years as a therapist, I still cry and I’m so upset for days. In our profession we really do care about our clients; that’s why we do the job we do. We want to help our clients all the time, give them support and make them beautiful. It’s never easy when you lose a lovely client.”

Helaina Gunner, owner of Therapy Skin & Brows in Coolalinga, commented: “I have been to two of my long-term clients’ funerals… If you feel comfortable to go then you should go, pay your respects and say goodbye. You’re allowed to be sad, you’re allowed to grieve. You may just be their beauty therapist to everyone else but to them you were special and they trusted you, so much to share the stories and secrets of their lives.”
