9780061175350: Damage Control: Women on the Therapists, Beauticians, and Trainers Who Navigate Their Bodies

Traditionally, women share their secrets with their hairdressers. But what about their manicurists, masseurs, chi gong teachers, and tattoo artists? In Damage Control, women wax poetic about the experts and gurus who help them love themselves, sharing stories of everything from friendships born in the make-up chair to the utter dismay of a truly horrible haircut.

Minnie Driver finally meets a Frenchman who understands her hair . . . and tries to teach her not to hate it.

Marian Keyes remembers the blow-dry that pushed her over the edge.

Francesca Lia Block tells the ugly story of the plastic surgeon who promised to make her beautiful.

Rose McGowan explains why it's harder to be depressed when you're glamorous . . . and shows how it takes a village to transform from mere mortal to movie star.

Witty and wise, Damage Control is an intimate, sometimes dark, look at our experiences with the professionals who pluck, prod, and pamper every inch of our bodies—and a reminder why we surrender ourselves to their (hopefully) very capable hands.

From Publishers Weekly:

Any woman who's ever wondered how her pedicurist maintains her sanity rubbing strangers' feet all day will get a kick out of these essays and interviews concerning aestheticians, hairdressers, chiropractors and psychologists. Novelist Jennifer Belle contributes a short but touching piece about a masseuse who rekindled memories of her youthful body; editor Forrest writes of the sensitive artist who tattooed an Edward Gorey illustration on her back; and in a particularly memorable essay, curly-haired actress Minnie Driver confesses that as a child all she longed for was her sister's straight blond hair: "at fourteen, I genuinely believed that if I could look like her, everything would be better." The most worthwhile parts of this collection illustrate how the business of beauty has given so many people-especially immigrant women-work, self-esteem, and entry into the American middle class. Though some pieces have the feel of hastily composed journal entries, the honesty and good humor demonstrated throughout makes it an entertaining and thoughtful read.
