NEW YORK — Afghanistan, a country whose government once outlawed women from showing any part of their body in public, is welcoming its first beauty school.
Scheduled to be renovated by the end of September, the beauty school — which still is searching for a name — looks to teach women a trade, as well as business-building skills, so they can create an industry in a land rife with poverty. Since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan in 1996, the country had been stripped of much of its culture, which at one time celebrated freedom of expression through hair and makeup.
