I am an entry level Cosmetologist just got my lic in 2008. My passion is Haircoloring, Haircutting, and Hairstyling. I am so excited about my new career. I would like to have a mentor in my life that I can look up to and even assit with any type of work. I want to learn, learn, learn. I am very passionate and ready to learn all I can.
Definitely must say- Vidal Sassoon for precision cutting, Paul Mitchell & crew for creativity, Beth Minardi for hair color, Robert Cromeans for inspiration and success, and definitely Redken Exchange for education.
Redken, Rusk, TIGI, Paul Mitchell, Kenra, Pravana, and Aquage.
Love a variety. Definitely Freestyle,Techno, and R&B.
As for Vern Cutting you can go to vernshears.com I will be teaching a class in Boca Raton on Sunday June 21st. Its $145.00 and includes a great lunch, mannequins and if you want to get any of the shears the $145 goes toward them. It will be all day training. Let me know. Also we will be at the Orlando show at the Harmonix booth. Hope to see you. And as regards Joseph try to go to anything he does photoshoots, classes , whatever. He has an addictive passion!
Hi Selines, the best thing I think you can do is to get on with a team. I was able to get on with L'Oreal and then all of the education was free. Plus you are able to met so many interesting, talented people and also all the great shows that you can help out with. That is the way I got started. You should talk with the different product reps that come into the salon and see what they have to offer many times they will look for artits that what to become educators. What are the products your salon uses?
Thank you so much for the compliment. The truth is I'm a perfectionist that always criticizes my work. I personally dislike the term "Master", you'll always stay at the top of your game if always remember that mastery is an ever moving target. If you feel that you have reached "IT" then its probably time to move on to something else. I learn something new everyday sometimes by someone who just came out of school or with only a few years of education but I have no problem asking them "Hey can you show me that?", or "Where did you see that?" Stay humble, its a beautiful industry your in!
The best advice I evr recieved was to continue to learn for the reat of your life. I attend Sassoons Advaced Acdemy once, or twice a year., and take a lot of classes inbetween, It works very sublity at your passion level.
you will be fine
