Esthetic education has neglected or forgotten segments of our society. Fearless Beauties will highlight skincare professionals of color and learn their stories of success to elevate the industry to become more inclusive.

48: How Did We Arrive in the “Age of Instagram Face?”
In this episode, the Fearless Beauties team explores how social media, face tuning apps and plastic surgery have led us into “the age of Instagram face.” The episode explains the factors that have resulted in the homogenization of our looks and an increase in pressure to look just like everyone else, or have the perfect filter-free face. The team also takes a look at the high costs associated with the tweakments required to get “instagram face,” as well as some of the problematic ethnic associations with the concept.

So I’m a new esthetician that went through the covid pandemic so I missed so much but I’m literally in tears in amazement because I am listening to my skin condition being talked about and so many things are going through my mind! Thank You Beautiful Ladies for this pod cast!
Important and timely discussions
As a new esthetician, I so appreciate their knowledge and perspective. They expound on subjects I’ve wanted to know more about and touched on issues I had never thought about before. Thank you for being this needed voice!
Just when you think you know...
Each episode is packed with inspiration and information. You could be in the industry for 18 years and still learn new modalities and equally important, how to meet each client where THEY are at. Esthetics is not a cookie cutter job and these episodes help us consult and treat our clients as individually as they are.
