I live in a country where not just women, but also men, are excessively concerned about their appearance. Most people here regard it as a part of their weekly, or even bi-weekly, routine to visit a beauty saloon where they have regular manicures, pedicures, hair styling, waxing, etc. When I first came here, I found it strange to see men wearing transparent nail polish, and sitting next to the women in the beauty parlors that you can literally find on every street corner. I come from a background where you can do most of these things yourself at home. You can look good without having to constantly pay others to take care of your basic grooming. Am I wrong?
