Why do you do hair?
I’m going to share a little bit of my story in this post.
After high school I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go to college or trade school. I tried a couple semesters of college, and wasn’t sure what I wanted to focus on. I decided to go to cosmetology school because I figured this would give me the freedom and flexibility to create my own schedule, and make good money, while I decided what I wanted to be when I grow up. 😉
Immediately after attending Paul Mitchell Academy we went to our first hair show. This is the moment that I thought, “Holy shit this hair thing is cool stuff…These guys are like rock stars.”
I loved the art almost immediately. I always loved theory in hair school. I love the science, and the art. I felt like a chemist, but I was able to put my own creative spin on things. Even back in Hair school I had the ability to look at a client and visualize what I wanted the end result look like.
I teach my students assess the hair.
I think many stylists overlook this in hair.
What does this mean?
Assess the hair in the consultation. Assess each section as you start your coloring. Assess each strand you’re picking up to color.
I don’t come up with a plan – I create the plan as I’m going.
One of the most important parts in blending hair extensions, is having an eye for color. We’ve all seen those bad extensions right?? What’s the first thing we notice… the blend, right? (Hair Color).
Now listen. Shortly after I went into hair school I realized I’m kind of a problem solving person… And I realized I only have 4 inches of hair color ha ha. My hair has never been great – the longest it’s ever been is a little below my collarbone. But I wanted to create longer hair, and have a natural look. Thus, I began my journey to find the best solution for hair extensions (NBR).
Now, if you’re virgin to hair extensions… here’s how it goes… basically they are either glued (great lengths), individually beaded in, individually taped in (on about a 1 inch tab), or Sewn in with either a braid or beads.
You name it, I’ve tried it.
I could sit here and share all my good and bad experiences, but it all comes down to one fact.
The less points of contact in the hair with the hair extensions, the least damage. 🤷♀️
Less point to contact, less shedding. Less points of contact, a cleaner removal. Less points of contact, more hair for you to enjoy.
Don’t take my word for it… Do your research and find out the results others are having.
In the meantime, if you’re ready to change your career we have a convention coming up in December. This week we close the registration for the event.
Now, I get it. If your hairstylist you’re probably thinking “this is the busiest time of year for me, I can’t possibly take time off for myself.”
Perhaps this is the problem?
You never take time to invest in yourself. Maybe your ok staying in the same situation you’re currently in. Or, maybe it’s time for change. Or, maybe you feel like you’re in a good situation. But I can tell you from my own personal experience – there’s always room to grow 😉
Even though it’s not until December, we like to do things a little different. We actually offer you three weeks of pre-training before the event even starts.
Want to find out more? Click here. Not only will you become certified in NBR, but you’ll also get business training to kickstart your 2018!!
We also offer small, more intimate classes once a month – New class dates will be released mid December. Stay tuned.
