How to Nail an Updo on Curly Hair

After graduating from your Long Island hair school, you’ll be ready to start a career as a professional hairdresser. This type of career will let you work with many different clients with different types of hair.

As you’ll see in this video, knowing how to work with curly hair can help you create gorgeous updos for your clients. You’ll start by spraying all of the hair with hairspray, then pinning up half of the back section of the hair and creating volume. Next, you’ll split the other half of the back section of hair evenly into at least 3 sections. Pin each section up before spraying with hair spray. Finally, pin up the front pieces of the hair and finish with more hair spray.

You can learn more about styling curly hair and other types of hair when you enroll at Long Island Beauty School in Hempstead. Our hairdressing courses can provide you with the training you need to find confidence and success. You’ll get hands-on experience, and all of our services are performed by students under the supervision of licensed instructors.

How to Fill in Eyebrows

Fuller and more natural-looking eyebrows are currently in style, but not everybody has these eyebrows naturally! You can learn about eyebrow trends from a makeup artist at a beauty school, but you’ll also want to learn how to incorporate the right makeup techniques into your regular routine. Learning how to fill in your eyebrows is one step that can make a big difference.

Start by finding the eyebrow product you like best, whether it’s a pencil, gel, or powder. Use a spoolie brush to comb your eyebrow hairs up. Use your brow product to gently fill in the bare spots, trying to create strokes that look like natural strands of hair. When you’re done filling in your eyebrows, use the spoolie brush again to straighten your brows and blend the brow product for a more natural finish.

How to Help Your Client Choose a Hairstyle

When you’re in beauty school, you’ll be learning many aspects of the cosmetology industry. This includes talking to clients. As a hairdresser, your clients will look to you for guidance when choosing a new style. These tips can help you help your future clients:

Identify Your Client’s Face Shape

During your hair academy training, you will learn about the most common face shapes and what hairstyles are most flattering for each. When you are meeting with a client, it’s important to make sure you can identify his or her face shape and then talk about what types of cuts and styles are most flattering. Your clients will be sure to appreciate your insider knowledge.

Ask Your Client about Their Preferences

You can help your clients understand what will be most flattering for their face shapes, but it’s also important to ask about their preferences and ultimate goals for their hair. Ask if your client has any specific images or people in mind to emulate, and what he or she hopes to get from the appointment. Think about what will be flattering while also incorporating your client’s wishes.

Consider Your Client’s Hair Type and Lifestyle

You should also talk to your clients about their hair type and ask questions about their daily routines. Along with face shape, hair type can be a determining factor for what cuts and styles are most flattering. You’ll also want to make sure you provide hairstyles your clients will be able to maintain, so ask how they typically style their hair and how much time they are willing to spend styling their hair each day.

Styling Tips for When You're Growing Out Your Bangs

Bangs can look great, but they can also be difficult to maintain. If you’re thinking about growing out your bangs, visiting a Long Island cosmetology school is a great way to learn how to style your hair so it looks beautiful as it gets longer.

Stick to a Side Part

Middle parts are popular when you have straight-across bangs, but when you’re growing your bangs out, it’s a good idea to start wearing a side part. Pick which side you prefer and start parting your hair that way so your bangs will get accustomed to the part as they grow out.

Be Bold with a Braid

If you like the look of braids, try braiding the front of your hair and include your bangs. This will get your bangs off of your face as they grow, and give you a super stylish hairdo to rock day or night. If you’re not the best braider, make an appointment at a beauty school to have your hair styled and ask for tips.

Use Accessories

Hair accessories can be your best friend when you’re growing out your bangs. You can use bobby pins or clips to keep your bangs pulled back whether you’re wearing your hair down or up. Headbands can also be a great way to keep your hair back and away from your face.

Trim Your Bangs

It might sound weird to keep getting your bangs cut if you’re trying to grow them out, but regular trims are always a good idea when you want your hair to grow. Trims help you avoid split ends and help keep hair healthier, which can lead to faster growth. Visit a beauty school for regular bang trims to help your hair grow out healthy and fast.

What You Need to Know About Changing Your Hair Color

If you were to stroll down the hair color aisle at a big box store, you might be led to believe that changing your hair color is as easy as apply, rinse, and dry. But really, there are lots of factors to consider, and you’ll learn about all of them if you choose to take hairdressing courses at a beauty school. A professional knows the ins and outs of choosing the right hair color to complement one’s skin and eyes, for example, and how to evaluate the overall health of the hair.

Your hair color should complement your skin and eyes.

Before committing to a drastic makeover, you should ensure the hair color you choose will flatter you, based on factors like your eye color and skin tone. For example, if you have a medium to fair warm skin tone, with green eyes, consider a stunning red color. Generally, lighter skin tones pair well with lighter hair colors, like honey, butterscotch, and strawberry blonde. Olive skin tones and dark eyes do well with an earthy, rich color with gold or honey highlights. Dark skin tones and dark eyes pair well with a hair color that contrasts, such as a darker or lighter color.

You should know the required commitment for maintenance.

Some hair colors and styles require far more upkeep than others. Always know the required maintenance before committing to a makeover. Ask the stylist whether it will take more than one appointment to finish the initial work, and how often you’ll need to return for touch-ups. You should also ask about any recommended changes to your hair care routine.

The health of your hair can influence your options.

In hair design school, students learn how to assess the health of a client’s hair. Very healthy hair can withstand a drastic, full color makeover. If your hair has already been chemically treated or aggressively styled, it may need a rest before a major change. Instead, consider a low-ammonia hair color glaze, ombre, or balayage style.
