    Last updated 9 days ago

    Once you complete cosmetology school and start working in a salon, a lot of your clients will come to you looking for their perfect wedding hair. Use this guide to learn about some of the latest trends so you are always ready to deliver:

    Embellish a High Bun
    A high bun is an elegant and modern style that is the perfect complement to practically any dress style. Whether your client is the bride or in the bridal party, this look works for any face shape. Embellish it with a sparkly tiara or an eye-catching hair clip to add just a little bit of pizzazz to the style.

    Create a Low Knot
    Whether you are working on a young bride or the mother of the bride, this style is chic and classic enough to use for anyone of any age. Gather the hair at the nape of the neck and gently pin it in a low up-do style. This look can easily serve as the ideal foundation for a veil or another great hairpiece.

    Make a Stylish Side Braid
    A side braid is a fun and sexy look for a wedding. Part the hair to one side and create a chicly messy braid that falls to the shoulder. This look is stylish enough to stand on its own but it will also look great with some decorative hairpieces.

    Keep it Simple with Loose Waves
    If your client has a carefree style, you might want to keep it simple with long, loose waves that can be perfect for an outdoor wedding. This style also makes it easy to accessories with a flowery headband or a floral crown. With a center part, this look is classic and sophisticated enough to provide the perfect effect for any kind of wedding.

    Last updated 23 days ago

    It is never too late to change gears and start working toward a new career that you actually enjoy. If you can relate to any of the following signs, it might be time to start looking into something new:

    You Feel Tired and Bored
    You should feel fulfilled by your job. If you wake up feeling tired or experience an unusual amount of boredom, your current job might be the problem. Although everyone will occasionally feel frustrated by their job, if it starts to happen more often than it doesn’t happen, you should try to find a career path that you truly enjoy.

    You Cannot Make Yourself Care
    Ideally, you should care about what you do. If you show up for work and cannot make yourself care about the job, you are probably in the wrong career. Changing to a new field can reignite a passion inside that makes you feel excited to get up and go to work in the morning. Make a change that gives you back a purpose in your life.

    You Feel Jealous of Other People in Your Life
    When you see a friend or family member who loves their job, does it make you feel jealous?  If so, it might be time to start looking into a new career path. The right job requires certain skills but also a zest for what you do.
