As soon as I started working in the beauty industry, I realized that knowledge, the use of the right techniques, and passion are essential to have your customers happy and completely satisfied. Of course, every person is unique and each one of them represents a new challenge. As of today, I am celebrating 10 years of being a business owner and approximately 13 years of doing what I love.. being a cosmetologist!
Just like in any other profession, I strongly believe that you must keep learning new procedures, products, and up to date with tendencies in the industry. I see myself as an artist, and I always try to give my best to obtain a positive result. However, even though I love my job, there are times where I find myself in need of motivation looking for classes, events, beauty shows or just an article that can enrich my knowledge.
Every year, I try to attend at least one International Beauty Expo. So far, I’ve had the opportunity to visit shows in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Long Beach (my favorite), and recently New York. When I tell my customers that I will be going to a show, they always get curious about it. They asked me about the event such as what the new tendencies are, what I am going to do there, and what classes or presentations am I going to attend.
Even though the Expo at Long Beach has been my favorite so far, this year in March I had the opportunity of attending the show in New York, which is considered the fashion capital of the world! I visited the city before when I was in college, but now I saw it differently. It might be because my attention was focused on people, trends and everything around me... It is a city full of life with visitors from all over the world.
In New York, I took different classes including hairstyles, haircuts, and color. Here are some of the trends that captivated me for this 2019, and I hope you are willing to try them.
ABOVE THE SHOULDER BOB – This cut suits all face shapes
HAIRCUTS WITH LONG / LIGHT LAYERS
GREY HAIR – This has been trendy for a while and is not going away any time soon
STRAIGHT HAIR / NATURAL HAIR TEXTURE
LILAC-PURPLE / PINK HAIR
BRIGHT GOLD BLONDE TOUCHES – Particularly on rich brown strands, blending the color into the roots to make it low maintenance
Another thing that I noticed was that many hair products are composed by natural ingredients which try to be more gentle and less aggressive to the hair and skin. Also, I saw many oils and diffusers for relaxation... I’ve always been a believer of aromatherapy and I love it!
