Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

This qualitative study explored pain among cosmetologists via an online survey of open-ended questions. Participants were recruited from cosmetology social media platforms. Qualitative data were analyzed via content analysis. Multiple researchers and data from multiple sources helped to ensure rigor and trustworthiness of the data. The voices of cosmetologists report that they experience pain in multiple parts of the body that results from repetitive movements and extended physical positions.
