“I’m A Red-Hot Mama!…But I’m Blue For You!”

P.B.D.S. Client #0024

From the collection of Steven!

It was the hottest day of the summer and the mercury in the spa’s thermometer left the 100 degree mark behind and continued right on climbing. On top of that, the air conditioner went on the fritz which only added to the merriment. I had Daffy find and plug-in all the fans we had stored in the back. Of course Vera complained the most about the heat as she doesn’t like to be uncomfortable, AT ALL! Beads of sweat, mixed with Aqua-Net trickled off her forehead, which she continually dabbed at with her lace hankie. Mix that with the smell of “Ambush!” her latest signature scent, and boy howdy!

We all sat cooking in our own juices waiting for Herb the repairman to show up and fix the darn cooler, which I’m sure is on its last legs. Now, just when you thought it wasn’t going to get any hotter, in walks our latest spa quest. This red-hot redhead certainly got your attention, bringing her own kind of heat! I swore the temperature jumped up ten more degrees when she entered the spa! Her Lava-Red hair and not so subtle make-up palate, complete with shiny as glass sealer, wasn’t exactly screaming “Sandra Dee” innocence. She was “all-woman” alright and I wouldn’t recommend leaving your Husband lying around out in the open with her in the vicinity, if you get my drift!

She climbed into my chair and after welcoming her to the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa, I asked how I could help her. “Well, I guess what I’m looking for is…you know, to tell you the truth, I’m not sure!” she said with a laugh. “I guess we can start at the top and work our way down honey!” 

She had a great attitude with a terrific sense of humor to boot so I liked her immediately! “Your hair color sure is striking!” I told her. “I don’t think I have a swatch in this color.” “Well, snip off a sample with my compliments!” she laughed. “It might catch on.” “Or might catch fire!” I said as I gave her a wink. “I decided to become a red-head, and I don’t do anything half-assed!” she said. “If you’re looking for the girl next door…” “I know”, I said holding up my hand, “…go next door!” we both said in unison, laughing. Vera looked up at us, not amused!

“I guess I’d like to tone it down a bit…not my hair color mind you, I love it, but my overall look.”  she told me. “I’m a singer, and I’m gonna try breaking into some of the high-brow joints uptown.” “I wanna stay me, but class it up!” were her instructions.

I handed her off to Daffy who escorted her into the back where she relaxed in a “cool-down” version of our Pink Bubbles Beauty Bath for Face & Body treatment. With her hair in a towel, she hopped back in my chair and my work began. I tamed her mass of locks, shaping them into a classic swirl hair design. With her hair now perfectly set, I finished her make-up, giving her a more elegant look. When I finished, she looked in the mirror and said “This is perfect, your some kind of magician! I sure could use you in my dressing room opening night!” “Well, I’ve been known to make house calls, why should nightclubs be any different! You know, I swear I’ve never seen shinier hair. What’s your secret?” I asked. “Just got lucky!” she said. “My hair has become my trademark, it really reflects the spotlights.” she told me.”Let me show you!”

Suddenly, she stood up and gave us an impromptu night club performance right on the spot! “You see, I always open up my set with this number! It’s called “That Terrific Rainbow!”

“Imagine me bathed in a hot red light!” she said. Raising her arms straight up, she began her song, a cappella. “I’m a red-hot mama!”…  picture it, they hit me with a blue gel when I sing this line,… “but I’m blue…for you!” ….get it?…then comes the purple gel… “I get purple with anger…at the things you do!”…then a green gel bathes me in its light… “but I’m green with envy, when you meet a dame!” …here comes the orange hue… “and you burn my heart up with an orange flame!”…again with the red…”I”m a red-hot Mama, but your white and cold… white light… “Don’t you know your Mama, has a heart of gold!” …hit me with gold!… “Though we’re in those grey clouds…someday you’ll find, a terrific rainbow, over you and I!”

Myself, Daffy and yes, even Vera, gave her a round of applause. But the loudest clapping of all came from the entryway. Herb, who had finally showed up to repair the air conditioning, was the most appreciative of our floor show. “Put your eyes back in their sockets and get that thing working Herb!” scolded Daffy. Picking up his toolbox, he shot back a glance at our fiery songbird and let out a long wolf whistle! Laughing, he headed towards the back. “A typical man!” shot Vera.

Our new friend was a Red-Hot Mama alright! I think we’ll try to schedule an appointment for her in December, you know, when the furnace goes on the blink. We’ll need the heat!

Picture101Steven’s gorgeous Swirl Barbie had an attentive audience here at the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa! She began with our wonderful P. B. Beauty Bath for Face & Body. Her shocking red tresses were styled into the classic swirl hairdo. A softer hand was used to give her an elegant new make-up, fit for the classiest of nightclubs. I doubt you’ll find a more scintillating siren anywhere!
