Another week, another episode of Toddlers & Tiaras, and another horrifying act of child cruelty. While there were no cone bras this time, there was an absolutely terrified five-year-old whose mother forced her to get her eyebrows waxed.
Honestly, this video is actually quite difficult to watch. While it’s absolutely understandable that a child wouldn’t want hot wax poured onto her face and then ripped off by an uber-coiffed salon worker, in this case, the young girl had actually experienced a traumatizing wax prior to this incident, in which the wax was too hot and actually tore off her skin. Her mother admits this to the cameras while her daughter (who is screaming and shaking) is being cajoled by the salon worker with a bag of candy. “Normally I woulda just held her down and ripped it off,” she adds.
That said, the most terrifying part of this clip might be the end, when the mother turns to her daughter and says, “There! Doesn’t that look pretty?”
