Interview with Senior Student Sam Basmajian

PB:  What’s next for your goals as a cosmetologist? SAM: First and foremost I am trying to finish my 1200 hours ahead of time to graduate and get my license. Once that is out of the way, I plan on coming back to do the teacher trainee program and get my educators license. After that it’s really limitless. There are just so many different directions you can go in the industry and I do not want to limit myself to one thing really. PB: What made you choose this career? SAM: As cliché as it sounds, I guess you can say it chose me. Once I hit middle school and I stopped getting buzz cuts and started growing my hair out I quickly became picky with it. How it would lay, how I...

Why I Love The Beauty Business

When we are children we have dreams of what we will be when we grow up. Our dreams usually begin with becoming a movie star, Wonder Woman, Superman or Malibu Barbie. As we begin to grow up, sometimes our dreams change, sometimes because we have changed, sometimes because the world has told us we need to change our dreams. If your dream has always been to be a barber/stylist,esthetician or nail tech, I am here to tell you that you don't have to change your dreams. What 30 Years in the Beauty Business has Taught Me What I have come to realize after over 30 years in my beloved beauty business  industry (10 of it as a hair journalist) is that many people, ladies and gents alike need to be...

Thoughts on what makes a great stylist

We are very excited to have guest blogger, Steph, from Life According to Steph. She blogs on everything from recent recipes to daily life. We asked to her tell us thoughts on what makes a great stylist. Standing behind the chair sometimes we focus so heavily on the hair itself. We often can lose sight of the personal connection with the person it's attached to. Its so important to remember that often times our clients look forward to seeing us all day, for the relaxation, retreat and social nature of our appointments. Here's the scoop "according to Steph"- Everyone loves walking out of the hair salon looking and feeling like a million bucks with fresh new hair, but most people are also...
