The Cut has profiled a “beauty consultant” who’s a kind of concierge/one-woman-referral-operation for plastic surgeons, cosmetic dentists, and so on. Half of this story is in the comments, though. Apparently, Farina and some of her fans don’t think she got a fair shake in the piece, and they are all kinds of saying so, plus responding to hater readers.
