Can You Wear Bangs with Curly Hair?

You can absolutely wear bangs with curly hair, and once you graduate from beauty school, you’ll be reassuring your clients of this. Watch this featured video to see some examples of beautiful, curly hair that proudly features bangs. This video was created by a beauty guru who demonstrates how women can wear short, medium, and long bangs with their curly locks.

First, you’ll see two examples of short bangs, which only extend down to about the height of the eyebrows. You’ll see that this style works well whether the individual has tight or loose curls. Medium bangs extend to about the cheekbones, and can be parted in the middle or swept to the side like Beyonce’s hair.

Reversing Damage to Color-Treated Hair

In beauty school, you’ll learn more about health and science than you probably thought you would. One of the topics you might study is the effect of dye on hair, and how to reverse the damage. The outer layer of the hair is the cuticle. The chemicals in dye products have to lift up the cuticle, break down the natural pigment, and then deposit the new color onto the hair shaft. The longer the cuticle remains lifted, the more the hair strand is damaged. When you graduate from hair design school, part of your job will be advising clients about protecting and restoring their hair.

Minimal Coloring

A fresh new hair color can renew a person’s mindset. When it starts to grow out, it’s best to treat the hair gently by applying most of the dye just to the roots. During the last few minutes of coloring, comb through to distribute the dye to the ends before rinsing thoroughly.

Styling Changes

Regular coloring and heat styling will do more damage to hair than coloring alone. Advise your clients to take a vacation from aggressive heat styling techniques like straightening and curling. Drying hair can also be problematic. It’s preferable to blot the hair gently with a microfiber towel or even a cotton T-shirt, rather than a terrycloth towel. When there’s no time to let hair finish drying on its own, recommend that your clients apply a spray or serum labeled for thermal protection. Then, use a high-quality, ionic hairdryer with at least 2,000 watts. A high-quality dryer should dry the hair too quickly to do much damage from overheating.

Hair Masks

At least once weekly, clients with dyed hair should treat their strands to a deeply hydrating mask. There are plenty of options available commercially—look for a protein mask treatment. It’s also easy enough to whisk together an egg with a cup of olive oil for a DIY hair mask.

A Look at Selena Gomez's Nirvana Blonde Do

Selena Gomez’s beautiful, dark hair is as famous as she is, but the young singer recently ditched her traditional look in favor of platinum blonde tresses. When you enroll in a beauty college, your hairdressing courses will prepare you to transform your clients’ looks in dramatic ways too.

Watch this video to hear how Selena got her new look. It took two stylists, about 300 foils, and eight bowls of bleach. It also required a lot of patience. The stylists worked on her hair for nine hours in just one day.

Why Gel Manicures Are So Popular

It’s unlikely that nail polish companies will ever invent bulletproof polish, but gel manicures are definitely the next best thing. Once they’re set with the UV light, they stubbornly resist chipping. It’s standard for a gel manicure to last for about three weeks without showing any signs of damage. At makeup school, you’ll learn the dos and don’ts of preparing your clients’ nails and applying gel polish.

Your clients will fall in love with the sleek, shiny look of gel polish. Unlike regular polish, gel doesn’t lose its shine over time. Plus, it dries rapidly and cures in a matter of minutes with the use of the UV lamp. Do remember to advise your clients to get gel manicures occasionally, instead of getting them one right after the other. This is because the fingertips must be soaked in acetone to remove the gel, and this will weaken the nail.

At Long Island Beauty School, you’ll learn how to expertly perform gel manicures and nail art. Enroll in makeup classes on Long Island today by calling (516) 483-6259.

Choosing the Right Eyeshadow Color

In beauty school, you’ll learn that having a keen eye for color palettes isn’t just instinctual—it’s something you can improve upon over time. The right color of eyeshadow depends on the look the client is going for, and the client’s skin tone and eye color. For example, a blonde with fair skin and brown eyes will look fantastic with pale shades of lavender and blue. For more contrast, add some soft gray up toward the brow area, and blend darker colors closer to the lash line.

In contrast, women with darker skin tones look gorgeous with vivid, jewel-like colors like emerald, burgundy, purple, and bright blue. If your client wishes to brighten up her eyes or radiate a “warm” look, try blending some gold and bronze tones.

Creativity and artistry matter, and you’ll develop both as a student at Long Island Beauty School. Get in touch at (516) 483-6259 and ask how you can enroll in our makeup academy on Long Island. All services are performed by students under the supervision of licensed instructors.
