Man Compared to Rosa Parks After Receiving $10 Manicure

Edited by

Some people simply have nothing going on in their lives. Which is fine. Not everyone has the luxury of television, or the Internet or readily available porn. Norris Sydnor III is apparently one of those people. After being forced — forced! I tell you — to pay one dollar extra for a manicure based solely on the fact of his mannish man hands, Sydnor is on a civil rights crusade, suing Rich’s Nail Salon for $200,000.

5 Year Old Girls Become Beauty Savy

Edited by

5 Year Old Girls Become Beauty Savy

What do you do when your 5 year old asks you for laser hair removal? Or your fourth grader asks for $150 highlights  and a mani/pedi to go with it?

An article in Newsweek talks all about this dilemma:

“Fourth graders are in the market for lush $50 haircuts; by the time they hit high school, $150 highlights are standard. Five-year-olds have spa days and pedicure parties. And instead of shaving their legs the old-fashioned way—with a 99-cent drugstore razor—teens get laser hair removal, the most common cosmetic procedure of that age group.  By the time your 10-year-old is 50, she’ll have spent nearly $300,000 on just her hair and face.”

Guess most of us don’t have to worry about that for some time, but imagine what OUR 5 year old’s are going to be asking? I’m imagining anal bleaching and Dora the Explorer temporary tattoo removal.

WOW!
