Now that I have subscribers who are clients, salon assistants and hairstylists, I've decided to extend my articles to anyone who is interested in hair.


If you love hair and the hair world, chances are you have already started your training in one on the many cosmetology schools across America. If not, well honey, start your enrollment today! Here are some helpful tips to get you on the right track to a successful start in an amazing career.

1) Document all of your work from day one. This will help you to monitor your progress. When you are at the point where you are about to graduate, you not only have your early work (which you can laugh at) but you also have a portfolio of your most recent work. Applying for a job fresh out of school and presenting a portfolio is very impressive.

2) While practicing in school, use magazines as inspiration to create styles, cuts and colors. It will keep you familiar with trends and how important it is to stay current.

3) Please do not go hog wild with hair color on yourself, especially when going to an interview. Get the faded pinks and big panels of black and blond out of your system early in the game (speaking from experience here).

4) Do as many wet sets and pin curls as you can, they are very important to your future in styling. Most styling techniques were born from these two old school techniques.

5) Find someone that inspires you in the industry and keep an eye on there career as it grows and changes. That could be you one day.

6) Be patient, you are embarking on an incredibly exciting career, however, it is up to you to take it to the moon.
