A New York City salon refuses to offer Russian manicures, and a Bahraini salon cancels Russian lips

Until recently, one of the salons in New York City, USA, used to offer a "Russian manicure" service. As it turned out, there are many such names abroad. For example, cosmetologists may offer to make you "Russian lips," and in a coffee shop you will find a honey cake that is inexplicably labeled as a "Russian cake." Ukrainians are outraged, and this is good, because outrage provokes change.

Ukrainian supermodel Alina Baikova was one of the first to draw attention to this problem. She urged her compatriots not to be silent and, if they find a name with the prefix "Russian" among the services, to complain and demand changes. The model's subscriber, a Ukrainian woman named Anna, who now lives in Oman, also raised this important topic on her social media and shared her own experience with everything "Russian."

It's worth starting with the fact that the complaints did have an effect on the New York salon. The Russian manicure service was renamed E-FILE MANICURE.

Baikova commented on her InstaStories: "This is how an apolitical business shows its morals! This small change has a huge impact."

The supermodel also urged: "Whether you work in the salon or as a client, you have the right to suggest changing the name of the service."

Meanwhile, Anna shared with OBOZ.UA that she really resonated with the topic Baikova raised. She herself has repeatedly come across such cases when services, dishes, etc. had the prefix "Russian" in their names.

"It's not unheard of for a girl to work for hire, but when she works for herself, it doesn't even occur to me. And in Oman, a girl proudly posted a video from a Russian public telling how well she does a 'rush manicure' as a Ukrainian."

On her social media, Anna also shared news from an American salon that managed to get the name of the service changed. She commented: "It's not just about changing the word, it's about changing the world's perception and consciousness of 'power and strength'. Change starts with us, with small steps. Don't wait for someone else to do it for you."

The Ukrainian woman recalled a similar incident in Bahrain, where she saw a "Russian cake" and refused to take it on principle. In addition, Anna told the waiter that she would not order a dessert solely because of the name. He replied that it was not the first time he had heard complaints from customers for this very reason, so the management decided to change the menu.

Meanwhile, some people working in the service sector refuse to use "Russian" names on their own because of their conscious position. This happened to a cosmetologist who also works in Bahrain. Anna shared her story: "This is the post of a doctor, I think from Latvia (I'm not sure), who works in Bahrain as a beautician. Back at the beginning of the war, she also did not want to follow the whole rashna thing, because what? Right, injected lips are also called rashna, why the fright? But we understand where the legs come from. Someone gets it faster, someone takes longer, the main thing is that they get it."

Back in early March 2022, right after the full-scale invasion, the cosmetologist posted an image of her lips in blue and yellow colors on her page and announced: "We say no to war! We say no to Russian lips. We are renaming them 'Ukrainian doll lips'.

Earlier, OBOZ.UA wrote that Alina Baikova reacted to a clumsy joke by American actress Megan Fox about "Ukrainian inflatable dolls." In it, the Transformers star tried to humiliate Ukrainian women, and after a wave of hate, she assured that she "did not mean it at all." Meanwhile, a beauty from Kropyvnytskyi, who has conquered many world catwalks, publicly called Fox a "Putin's whore."
