Ugly Beauty is a curious mixture of biography business marketing theory psychology and historical conseuences of social behavior This probably explains why the book is so complicated and sometimes confusingto follow The premise of comparing and contrasting Rubinstein and Schueller founder of L Orealmakes for an interesting read They could not have been opposite in perspective yet so alike in business acumen The biographical sections of the book are interesting to anyone who enjoys history granted the lack of space to do a definitive work of either personThe early origins of the professional cosmetic industry its impact on culture and business as well as marketing inadeuacy to the general public could be a book in and of itself Brandon ties in the political atmosphere of doing business within the confines of an occupied France during World War IIIt is helpful to see business put within its historical context rather than as a separate single subject The inconsistencies of the L Oreal management in treading the line and sometimes going over the line between Nazism and business illustrates the loyalty to business over patriotism and humane values Indeed it is a warning to us of today s international corporations when business priorities trump other important values The personal and national repercussions for Europeans of how their elders participated in anti Semitic activities sometimes playing both sides of the fence is still a current issue The author does not gloss over this This middle section of the book gets dense and becomes difficult to follow It would be easy for a reader to get bogged down if not knowledgeable about the political nuances in French historyThe weakest part of the book is the chapter Consumers or Consumed The topic is of incredible value but Brandon tries to put too much into one book This section should have been lifted perhaps developed into another bookWhile some of the analysis is stretched the overall subject of the book is intriguing At times it reads like a term paper and the concluding uestion of whose life had meaning Rubinstein s or Liliane Schueller Bettencourt feels lame diminishing the impact of the earlier writing I vacillated between giving this a 3 structure or 4 subject content

review Ugly Beauty Ugly Beauty Free read ð 6 Ruth Brandon ã 6 characters Changing product lines such as Avon and Mary Kay Ugly Beauty resonates as well with its implications for modern culture as we enter an era when haute couture and cosmetology exert an ever powerful influence upon society at large. Well written and engrossing company histories that probe personal ambition in nuanced context of a time period that saw both huge upheavals of war and restructuring of European business This opened a door for American beauty products in the empire that the tireless Helena Rubenstein had already been building across national borders The story becomes complicated and shot through with irony as Brandon astutely combines it with the company history of L Oreal founded by a French chemist whose strange ideological passions led him to the Nazis and collaboration in Vichy And behold in our time the wonders of mergers saw the joining of the Rubenstein brand born of the Polish Jewish diaspora to the never graying miracle of better living through chemistry offered by Eugene Schueller s company l Oreal The oddness of this synthesis of lovely complexions and tainted past was only revealed when some staffers turned out to have served serious prison sentences in France for collaboration and Arab business interests objected to the Rubenstein branches in Israel This is not the politics of beauty one might expect but show that business history can be just as interested and twisted as the plot lines of Ugly Betty
