Slang expressions used among beauty parlour staff are very interesting to explore. This research deals with the three research questions related to those used by Johnny Andrean Beauty Parlour staff in Delta Plaza Surabaya. The three research questions are: (1) what forms of slang expressions are used by Johnny Andrean Beauty Parlor staff in talking to another (2) which form of slang expressions is mostly used by Johnny Andrean Beauty Parlor staff in talking to one another and (3) what reasons influence the Johnny Andrean Beauty Parlor staff to use slang expressions in communicating with one another. To answer these questions, the writer recorded Johnny Andrean Beauty Parlor staff’s conversations in seven occasions. The conversations, then, were transcribed and analyzed in terms of the forms of slang expressions and their frequency of occurrence. From the analysis of the data, it is found out that there are three forms of slang expressions: (1) words, (2) phrases and (3) clauses. Among the three forms, slang words are the most dominant (69 percent of the total slang expressions). By crosschecking the structured interview, the underlying reasons why the subjects used slang expressions in their conversations were revealed: (a) to conceal a message, (b) to show high degree of intimacy, (c) to have fun with the words.
