This video should be liberating for women and instructive for men, as should 1 Peter 3:3-4:
“Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear—but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.”
Beauty is fleeting even when it’s real (Proverbs 31:30). How much worse is it when girls are taught to chase after beauty that isn’t even skin deep, but is entirely artificial?! I pray that all 4 of my very pretty daughters will grow to be more attentive to their hearts than their hair. (Which means I should primarily complement them for their character, not their appearance. And which also makes me thankful for their mother who is even more beautiful inside than out—which is saying plenty!)
BTW, it probably wouldn’t hurt to show this to your wives and daughters, men. Let them know that they don’t need to compete with plastic. For that matter, show it to your sons and let them know that they don’t need to look for plastic, either. Lessons to learn here for all of us!
