Now, since the parlors are even found within 1 mile’s radius, and the services and not ridiculously expensive, people prefer to be pampered by others. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that it’s in every women nature to want to look beautiful, but this wish has spread in our society’s male spectrum more than ever before. If women want to feel empowered, men do too. If they want more and more of these grooming services, why would men fall behind? Society has not only put pressure on women to follow the trend and stay in the race- men have their own league to follow as well. Some may see this in the negative spectrum and criticize the culture of constant self-consciousness and self-obsession.

22 Beauty Parlors From valuing the morals and internal soul of an individual, we have come to appreciate and not look beyond the outer covering of a human being. There is nothing wrong to feel empowered, but the truth is there is a very thin line between that and arrogance. In the social media culture where we are constantly appraising and competing with others beauty, we forget the essence of beauty which lies within. Character is becoming of lesser value since outer shell is in the limelight for everyone. With this busy day and age, where everyone has many responsibilities, women and men still take the time out to visit the parlor in efforts to beautify or comfort themselves. Majority of our day is spend on fashion and self-maintenance. Nothing is harmful unless it exceeds the limit. One should be self- maintained but not selfish, and self-groomed, but humble not arrogant. With this increase trend of beauty maintenance, one should not forget the internal exquisiteness as well. Outer beauty will fade, no matter how many efforts are made and this should never cause depression since beauty parlor services serve the purpose of empowerment not consciousness.

Beauty salons provide a safe working environment for women similar to schools. In our conservative male dominant society, there has always been a barrier for working women. In most middle and upper class family’s young girls are getting their education and emerging as profound professionals. Unfortunately, lower and bottom middle class families are unable to break the bubble despite having education. In our society millions of families struggle financially and find it hard to make ends meet. The situation gets worse for families who are not run by male figures and the reason may vary. Most girls who enter into the beauty field and possible start working in the beauty parlor are as young as nine or ten. Education for many is not the easy path to change their financial condition but a job is. When these young girls enter this field, they know that along with making money, they are also gaining skills and eventually as they improve, so will their income. These

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
