Men gradually taking over beauty business in Jos

By Martha Nyam (NAN)

In what seems like an unusual turn, men in Jos are gradually taking over the beauty business.

Years ago, the business of making women beautiful was considered a job exclusively for the female gender.

It was generally the belief that only a woman knows how best to make another woman look beautiful.

Hence, jobs like fashion designing, hairdressing, braiding, manicure and pedicure and other related tasks were seen as no-go-areas for males.

Before now, any male found doing such businesses was seen as eccentric, gay or an unserious person.

It is no longer what it used to be, in recent times men have gradually established themselves in the business of making women beautiful.

Today, the preferred choice of many ladies for their beauty needs are the men.

A cross-section of some of them who are doing the business in Jos, shared their experiences with NAN.
