VIDEO: Powerful Short Film Challenges Stereotypes about Female Beauty

| August 2, 2017

The Huffington Post’s Curtis M. Wong brought our attention to this short film by Dove. The “Real Beauty” clip shows the power of living genuine.

“Dove teamed up with “Scandal” screenwriter and producer Shonda Rhimes for a powerful short film that aims to help “redefine” female standards of beauty,” Wong wrote.

Released July 25, 2017 “MEET KYLEE” tells the story of Kylee Howell, who owns and operates Friar Tuck’s Barbershop in Salt Lake City, Utah. Growing up, Howell aimed to fit in by wearing her hair long and dressing in traditionally feminine styles, but realized she wasn’t happy doing so.”

“Looking back at old pictures just kind of reminds me of what it’s like to not know yourself,” Howell explains in the clip, which can be viewed above. “It wasn’t until I cut my hair short that I really felt like I had come into myself … I made a choice to be happy. I made a choice to be genuine with who I was.”

“Barber shops are known to be pretty hyper-masculine places,” she said. “I realized there might be room to create a new haircut experience.”
