What is it about being made over that reduces women to tears at the shock of their beauty in the mirror? So many cases where the woman has forgotten to take of herself, or has no time to take care of herself, or has too much fear to take care of herself, or feels herself is not worth taking care of.
What is it about the right clothes, haircut and make up magic formula that peels off the layers of forgetfulness, carelessness, fearfulness, worthlessness?
Is it just the harsh comments of passers by which shock and shame her to agree to the change? Is it just the relief then to see unveiled an image of herself in the mirror she knows will be approved by Joe Bloggs on the street and more so her nearest and dearest?
There’s always a story of the outer care birthing or unveiling the beauty that was always within but not seen, not believed in. What is it about the beautifying treatment that touches a woman’s emotions in this way? How far is it the Way Things Should Be?
