How to get more beauty school students to wear makeup
The beauty academy’s CEO said in a statement that she “hasn’t had time to sit down and review the facts before sharing them publicly” and added that “the Academy has not received any complaints.”
The Associated Press reported that some of the women who attended the event had told BuzzFeed News they felt they were not treated fairly and treated with disrespect.
“I had the chance to spend my first night in a beauty academy in the most beautiful place in the world, in an atmosphere of trust, and I couldnt believe how few of the students who were there knew me or who had met me before,” one woman told BuzzFeed.
The woman said she did not want to give her name for fear of retribution, and she spoke on condition of anonymity because she feared for her safety.
“There are a lot of things wrong with how I was treated in the Academy,” the woman said.
“They treated me like a commodity, as if I was a commodity.”
A former employee said she was told by another female member of the academy, who attended for only six weeks, that she could be fired if she was not a “good” student.
“The Academy has an extremely hostile and oppressive culture,” the former employee told BuzzFeed, adding that she did “not feel safe” during her time at the academy.
“My experience was so bad.
They would yell at me for not being an ‘average’ girl.
They made me feel like an outsider, like a problem.
I could not believe they treated me that way.”
The employee said that she left the academy after two months because she did NOT like what she heard.
“If I would have been an ‘A’ student I wouldve been fired,” the employee said.
