Just like the schoolyard and cyberspace, the beauty realm is full of individuals who seek to assert their authority over others, preying upon the vulnerable among us. To the trim seekers who are coaxed into lobs coupled with full fringe, anyone who’s ever left a dermatologist feeling worse about their skin, and victims of professional skin tormenters: We’re here to help you take back the power.
No matter the scenario, we have solutions that will help prevent future beauty intimidation. Of course, not every beauty pro is a bully. This handy primer will help you weed out the bullies from the bona fides and learn how to tell them to buzz off. Stay strong out there, ladies.
