This report presents the beauty culture of French Polynesia and cultural influences from the United States. The expedition took place at the turn of June and July in 2005. The visited islands are Tahiti and Moorea. It was found that the islands of Tahiti and Moorea, while being close, can be distinguished by significant cultural differences and standard of living.
