  1. It must know a great deal about cosmetics to be able to full us with uncertain gender. Come on people hire that thing ! It's great at parties !

  2. Cosmetologists can have nose rings and colored hair and dress [when not on the job] like a goth-club-goer, and get jobs*.

    Indeed, well-done colored hair is self-advertisement for a subset of cosmetology work. (Not so good for the blue-haired old lady market, great for the club-kid market. Which exists and is real.)

    Probably the real problem is that there's not a lot of work for cosmetologists in New York, and she can't figure out that she should move to find work.

    (* I know this because I know people much like that, doing cosmetology.)

    Her personal appearance would explain it if she was looking for work as an accountant or got an MBA. But not cosmetology, not in itself.

  3. She's got the crazy eyes.

  4. At least next week she will be busy making people up for Halloween.

  5. Girl (if that IS a girl) is a hot mess. Bad hair cut, bad dye job, poorly applied and unflattering make-up, unfortunate skin...

    She's certainly a walking advertisement, but not for the wonders of her cosmetic work. Rather than moving, she should possibly consider a career in which she has more talent. Head Shop cashier, maybe?

  6. Sigivald,

    There is such a thing as attractive female goth/punk (see Suicide Girls) -- and this ain't it, not by a long shot.

  7. She's not exactly a walking billboard for the styles for which someone is likely to hire a cosmetologist. Also, she has zits.

  8. Maybe it's the massive acne problem.

  9. She looks like she needs a shave.

  10. Her problem is not the shocking pink hair, piercings, or crazy eyes. It's the acne on her chin. It's like a big neon sign, saying; "I'm a lousy (or maybe just lazy) cosmetologist!"

  11. What Sigivald said is only partly true. That segment of the cosmotelogy field is very small. Rachel can either insist on doing something for which there is very little demand, or she could move into an area of the market (blue-haired old ladies) for which there is a lot of demand. That will require her changing her appearance. She can either cater to her prospective customers tastes and needs, or she can remain unemployed. Is she there to serve a social need, or does everyone else exist to serve her needs and wants?

  12. Because she's a man?

  13. Your field seems to be crafting a personal appearance and demeanor that will simultaneously confuse and repel anyone who encounters you. This is not personal style, but personal pathology.

    No one knows who you are. People judge you by how you present yourself, by who and what you say you are. Nothing speaks more loudly and consistently than your physical self. Go around presenting yourself in a package that says "creepy head case," and people are going to take you at your word. How could they do otherwise? They don't know you. They only know what you show them. Take control of what you show and tell people and you take control of what they think of you.

    Want a job as a cosmetologist? Create an appearance that says "I'm a costmetologist." Persist with an appearance that says "I'm an outcast on drugs and I cut myself" and you'll continue to be out of work.

  14. Kato Kaelin in drag?

  15. If that's a girl, I'll eat my hat.

  16. The cows in the field don't usually need hair and make up. Get out of the field, remove that crap, do something with your hair and join the human race.

  17. The assumptions here are interesting; you are all assuming that this is what she looked like when interviewing for positions as a cosmetologist. Just like any of you look the same during an interview as you would on say some random Saturday morning? I would imagine that if I were jobless for quite a while, I'd spend less time on getting dressed each day ... and since I am not working, I'd feel free to try something different with my hair. (Pink is not my type of thing, but still...)

  18. Cosmetologists who I've met and who relied on that skill for actual bread-and-butter work were in Theater, helping various productions with stage-makeup application - and that was a very small set of workers, in an extremely demanding environment, with poor pay and long and quite bad hours...

  19. First thing that she should do is to TAKE A BATH! Get that red food coloring out of her hair. Remove the Snot catching Ring, wash her face and try some of the latest Acne medications. No reason for anyone to have complexion problems in this day and time. Then put on something decent, even a tee shirt! I wouldn't hire "it" for a janitor's position! Let alone someone to work on my hair or makeup!

  20. Wait...to have a job you've got to participate in capitalism and maybe go to work for an evil corporation. I'm guessing she doesn't really want to work and is quite happy living on the dole, otherwise she'd be attending Tea Party rallies and not OWS.

  21. Hey "Rachel", where's some free advice with your best interest at heart: If you want to get a job as a Cosmetologist, you need to have a look that your customers will find attractive.

    I suggest you try another one.

  22. Because the hair on the left side of her face is protruding a little and is not balanced with the right side of her face.

  23. My wife is a PhD cell biologist with a strong record of accomplishment, laid off from a Director level position in project management at a biotech company in March 2010. She can't get a job in her field either. It's easy to make fun of Miss Nosering, but the economy stinks even for people with advanced degrees in what are supposed to be good fields.

  24. There's an old saying: never trust a skinny cook. A subset of that rule is: never trust a cosmetologist who looks like she's been beaten within an inch of her life with an ugly stick.

  25. Maybe she looks like this because nobody has ever told her about the Lord and how much He loves her. Maybe if someone shared their faith with her, accepted her, loved her just the way she is, and invited her to church, she would start to have faith and to develop some self- esteem and to take better care of herself. Then she might become more employable.

  26. Do remember that when you walk into a beauty shop or a barber shop you look around, select the best haircut, manicure, or whatever else you've come for and tell the receptionist, "I want the person do did that person's hair (or whatever)."

  27. You can have a job in my field.
    Ever picked cabbages?

  28. The reason Rachel here is unemployed:

    1. she is a poor advertisement for any beauty shop
    2. she directs her look to a very competitive subset of the field
    3. if this is her "a" game to enhance her beauty she needs to rethink her skills
    4. I would not put it past her to claim she should only be scheduled from 3 pm on, and only on days she is not going out

    It is not "the public's" (whatever that is supposed to mean) job to employ her....

    ReplyDelete
  29. You sure that person's name isn't "Pat"? Or "Andy"? Or "Erin"? Or "Bobby"?

    ReplyDelete
  30. A little detour in your focused job will not be a problem. Maybe that is not really your field.

    ReplyDelete
  31. She is unemployed, but she wants to study the 'cosmos' (at least that is probably what she thought when she signed up for the classes).

    ReplyDelete
  32. It takes a talent to conquer the world of cosmetics. Sometimes being simple in appearance is a good point.
