Reviews

"Overall Kang has written an exceptionally well-argued, insightful book."--American Journal Of Sociology
"Rich and textured account."--Women's Review of Books
"A poignant account of the ways those seeking beauty services realize their own sense of self with the assistance of the low-wage immigrant women."--Contexts
"A beautifully designed and brilliantly executed study. . . . Skillful analysis . . . An important contribution to the growing literature on 'mundane' beauty practices, as well as to scholarship dealing more generally with the 'body/work nexus.'"--Social Forces
