How to get Pinterest Hair

Does anyone remember when salons used to have those books with all the different hairstyles?

My school salon has them and for the most part they are incredibly out of date, even though a lot of them are classic styles, the photography, styling, and makeup is from the 80's at least!

Today when I have a client who wants something different than her normal style, she shows me an image straight from Pinterest!  Amazing!

Here's the deal though...
What you see may not be what you get so I've put together some tips on how to be prepared for your salon consultation using Pinterest.

A Cosmetology Students Word

It doesn't mean much to you as a blog reader, unless you are a licensed cosmetologist.  But the truth is this, I am not a professional hairstylist until I am licensed.  And that's the goal.  To get licensed.  There's a lot of training involved in my state and it's not easy or mindless.  It's valid and required.  And I honor this profession more from behind the chair than I ever did sitting in it.

MAY 2015 Skin Cancer Awareness Month

MAY is Skin Cancer Awareness Month

Did you know that I was a licensed esthetician (aka skin care professional) in Florida and when I graduate from beauty school I'll be licensed in North Carolina as well. Did you also know that May is skin cancer awareness month? 

There is a lot of scary information out there on the inter-web about the cases serious skin cancer and related deaths. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer and every year the numbers go up and up.

The problem however, isn't that we don't know that we should be protecting our skin it's the fact that skin cancer typically happens when we are much older. And because skin cancer can arise from skin that has been damaged years and years prior, it becomes a out of sight - out of mind situation.
