Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Debbie Rodriguez is an American author and hairdresser, who wrote a best-selling book regarding her experience in Afghanistan managing the Kabul Beauty School. Deborah Rodriguez, a hairdresser, went to Afghanistan as part of a group offering humanitarian aid after the fall of the Taliban in 2001. Soon after arriving, she became involved in the set up of a beauty school training program to certify Afghan women to work in and set up their own beauty parlors. Rodriguez wrote a book about her experience, entitled Kabul Beauty School. The book became a best seller, and at one point, it was slated to become a movie, with Sandra Bullock playing the lead. In the book, Rodriguez portrays herself as the founder and main force behind the success of the beauty school and a savior for some of the women who trained there. However, other women who were also involved at the founding of the Kabul Beauty School say the book is filled with inaccuracies and inconsistencies, that events did not unfold the way Rodriguez depicts them, and that she exaggerated her role in the formation of the school.show more
