What is Beauty Tourism?
Traveling for specialized beauty treatments is an evolving trend for men and women. You may have heard of medical tourism, but beauty tourism involves visiting beauty centers for permanent makeup, specialized cosmetic surgeries, or to use an exotic beauty treatment or herbal remedy for anti-aging.
According to the Daily Sabah, Turkey has become a center of attraction for permanent makeup, attracting tourists from around the world. Microblading and permanent eye makeup is less expensive in Turkey and beauticians and cosmetologists there are touting the tourist attractions as an additional plus. Hong Kong, Thailand, and other countries have been touted as go to places for beauty treatment coupled with a vacation. For protective hairstyles, several countries in Africa have been promoted as go to places for more than 50 braiding techniques that have been documented. Each region and tribe has a special way of braiding hair.
