Ok, I have been giving this some thought. I think this was a simple misinterpretation of what was truly happening. Obviously, this is one of those "green" salons with "natural" products. This poor salon owner was just in the process of harvesting said product for the next week. It seems reasonable that she would take off her clothes to avoid an expensive trip to the cleaners.
ChiTown, you may want to pass on the "gel" after your cut on Friday. I'm just sayin'...
