Everyone knows that work is called that for a reason. While some careers tend to have more glam than others, most jobs come with a downside. What Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly (2000), by Anthony Bourdain, did for the culinary set, Lora Condon’s Spa Wars: The Ugly Truth about The Beauty Industry (2011) seeks to do for the spa set. A licensed esthetician since 1998, Condon goes behind closed spa doors to reveal some of the dirty industry secrets she has witness over the years. From spas that re-use worn robes and used towels to clients with questionable hygiene, she doesn’t mince words when it comes to taking the “warm and fuzzy” out of spa.
