Afghans flocking to Beauticians Without Borders

Beauticians might have been smirking to themselves lately, thinking "nobody can outsource us". But that doesn't mean that the competition can't come to the US. And maybe one day we'll see a bunch of women from Afghanistan over here doing hair and makeup the way many Asians are over here doing nails.

Why women from Afghanistan? They're getting interested in beauty products now that they're not necessarily covered from head to toe all the time. There's not much they can do over there under traditional circumstances, and they're getting trained as noted here.

Stolen from Winds of Change.
