If you’re a woman in America, it’s assumed that you love hair and makeup products, days at the salon, free makeovers at the makeup counter in the department store, spa days, contouring tips…you get the idea. Makeup isn’t just an industry—it’s a culture. In many friend groups, doing hair and makeup is the social activity. So if you’re a woman who just couldn’t care less about doing her hair and makeup, who sees chapstick as a form of makeup, and believes so long as you brush your hair, you should be ready for the day, you can feel a bit left out. If you are into hair and makeup, you probably wonder, “How big of a deal can it really be to not like these things?” We’ll show you. Here are struggles only women who don’t care about hair and makeup understand.
