But if you dig a little deeper? If you start to understand issues of beauty, if you debunk the myths that you sacredly believe? Chances are, you’ll become a real queen. And the right literature will help.
Hair: A Human History
This book was published in June 2021 and immediately became a bestseller (however, it was recognized worldwide much earlier). It was written by the world expert on hair and its health, Kurt Stenn. He has worked with top models and Hollywood stars and now offers a walk through the pages of the past. Through the pages of beauty and first and foremost hair.

And yet hair and the condition of strands have played no small part in cultural formation, in forensics, in industry, and in beauty standards. From this book you will learn what role hair played. Knowing the biological and cultural aspects associated with it will help you look better and pay much more attention to your hair.
The Beauty Myth Naomi Wolf
This is a curious and unusual book that is simultaneously a fascinating historical novel, a social study, and a good read. The writer takes it upon herself to trace the origins of the most popular myths about female beauty and appearance, stereotypes about appearance that are often no less damaging than “the clock is ticking, where is the baby” or “your place is in the kitchen, woman! How is it that physical beauty has become a real obsession for girls? Why are skinny girls so popular now, while some 100 or 200 years ago, a lady with a body was the standard? Where to find the fine line between the imposed opinion and their own attractiveness? Such burning topics made the book a bestseller.
The Body Book, Cameron Diaz
Actress Cameron Diaz has long been and remains the standard of femininity and natural beauty. She herself has repeatedly said in numerous interviews that she is naturally inclined to fullness, that she has genetically fast aging skin, thin hair and a whole bunch of other problems. And the actress has not always thought about her health and its connection with beauty and grooming. We’ve all seen pictures where she was so plump, that it was difficult to recognize her fragile blonde. This incident made her think about her own body and its health. Now Diaz is an active follower of proper lifestyle, natural cosmetics and sports. In the book, she shares her experiences as well as the knowledge she learned from Hollywood gurus and books. If you think this is just another pacifier from the actress to boost her popularity, you’re wrong. “The Body Book” is an honest tune-up for changing eating habits, for being mindful of nutrition and life, and the secrets of youth and beauty proven by science.
