Mom Sparks Debate After Helping Bullied 10-Year-Old Daughter Wax Her 'Unibrow' And 'Mustache'

A mother of a 10-year-old girl who has been subjected to bullying for having a "unibrow" and a "mustache" filmed a TikTok video of her waxing it off her daughter's face at home.

The clip was met with some scrutiny online and sparked a conversation about the appropriateness of a child's bodily autonomy.

Ashlee Pease's daughter, Giselle, insisted on the home remedy in spite of the fact that Pease assured her that her full eyebrows were beautiful and that the thin hairs on her lip hardly constituted a "mustache" as her tormentors proclaimed.

Said the accommodating mother:

"She doesn't even have a mustache. Just a little bit of hair."
"Every girl has a little bit of hair but we're gonna wax it because she wants it waxed."

In the clip, Pease, who is the owner of the popular Pease Family TikTok account, tried several waxing attempts that didn't seem to go well.

She also tried taking a tweezer to remove her "unibrow" but it was to no avail.

The text overlay read:

"Daughter wanted to get waxed because ppl in school are teasing her."

Pease wrote in the caption that Giselle "has some stubborn hairs."

When the DIY beauty attempt didn't work, Pease said at the end of the clip they were going to go to a professional since the hairs were "barely coming off."

She added:

"Honestly this wax isn't working."

Some TikTokers denounced Pease for indulging her daughter's wishes to do something they thought was inappropriate.

Others, however, came to Pease's defense and argued a mother was only supporting her daughter's bodily autonomy to prevent further bullying at school.
