Top 7 Interesting Facts About Hair Which Every Hairdresser Should Know

Every hair type is unique in its own way. A lot of times women stick to one hair-care regimen, although it may be completely wrong for their cuticles, hair length, and their hair type. If you are wondering what are some of the most common misconceptions regarding hair, you’ve come to the right place! Here are the top 7 facts that every hairdresser should know, and here are the top 7 facts that every hairdresser wishes their clients knew beforehand!

  1. Everyone Has A Lot Of Hair

What we mean by this is that both men & women have the same amount of hair follicles on their scalp. Everyone’s head shape is pretty much the same in size, which means that men, women & kids will have the same number of hair strands. This number is around 100,000 – 150,000 hairs!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. But Your Hair Sheds

A lot of clients come to the salon panicking that their hair is thinning, shedding, and falling out. However, always remember to take a breather, and observe the situation! According to many scientists, we tend to lose around 50-100 hairs per day! This is a natural process that shouldn’t worry you. Only if you lose more strands than this, consider visiting your dermatologist.

  1. Black Is Super Common, While Red Is Rare

The most common hair color worldwide is, shockingly enough, black! This is the most common natural color for men & women, and brown follows it right after. The rarest color in the world is red, where you can find only 1.5% of gingers on the entire globe.

 

  1. It Technically Grows Super Fast

As you probably know it by now, your hair is made out of keratin. This is a protein that is found in the outer layer of our skin, as well as in our fingernails. The better you eat and incorporate biotin and protein-enriched foods to your diet – the healthier, stronger & longer your hair will grow! Also, hair is the second-fastest-growing tissue in our body, right after the bone marrow!

  1. Hair Has A Life Span

You can’t really do wonders for your hair with vitamins and hair-boosting products. You only have a certain number of follicles that contain hair. Once your hair is plucked from the follicle (or once it sheds on its own) new hair will begin to grow. Time-wise & usually, a single hair has a lifespan of approximately 5 years.

  1. Hair Grows Quicker In The Summer

You probably noticed that your hair sheds and dries out more in the winter than it does in the summer, right? This is because temperatures can have an impact on the way your hair looks. During the summer, high heat will stimulate the circulation in your body, and will encourage faster growth! This is also why your hair may appear a bit shinier, and it may look highlighted in the summer.

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Cutting It Won’t Speed Up Its Growing Process

The most common misconception that you hear often at the salon is this one. However, it is a false claim that does not make any sense. We’ve been told that our hairs will grow faster if we shave them (which is true) but cutting the ends and split ends won’t speed up the growing process. Your ends are already dead & dried out. The root of your problem is in your actual root! Make sure you eat right, be gentle to your scalp, and massage it to boost its blood flow, this is the only way that your hair can get long.

Why is Beauty Industry Booming? Top Four Reasons to Get into Beauty

Years before, all of these fields were manageable and operated by one person only. Nowadays men & women can improve their expertise, and can make a decent living just by focusing on one specific skill!

  1. Never Ending (Fun) Process Of Learning

Usually, people who are good with drawing, coloring, or even cooking are ideal candidates for exploring in the beauty field! Are you someone who is drawn to fashion? Usually, all of these creative tasks and fields can help you become a hairdresser, makeup artist, or a nail specialist. If you are skilled in something similar to these activities, make sure you keep on learning and always push through! Nowadays almost anyone can become a beauty guru or a beauty specialist/influencer, you just have to be willing to learn every day, and try to be better than the day before!

  1. A Huge Variety

A huge variety, as previously said, allows you to experiment in many different beauty fields till you find the one which suits you completely! When working on other people, you get to play with so many different face shapes, skin types, as well as textures. This is why it is important to find your fortee! If one field fails and you dislike doing, let’s say, baby highlights on your clients, you can still go back to doing cuts, as well as blowouts! Nowadays beauty creators can choose their headed path, and can perform their magic without doing the ”full thing”. This rule usually applies to bigger salons where you can find 2-3 hairdressers that are all in charge of different things. The same rule applies to let’s say a therapist: where one can only do massages, while the other one works on paraffin waxes etc.

  1. You’re Always With People

If you are a people person, you will definitely enjoy working in beauty sectors! No matter the position that you play, you will meet new people daily. Constantly meeting people and working with different age groups, skin types, genders, as well as on different tasks will allow you to learn new skills, and to develop a better skillset! Also, this will help you keep things fresh, exciting, but at the same time – challenging. Nothing is worse than being stuck at your job office with the same group of people that you already know, as well as going to business meetings and losing your temper while discussing tricky subjects. This also applies to typing on your computer, replying to emails etc.

 

 

 

  1. Freedom

Lastly, if you are a freelancer, you will have all the freedom in the world! You can choose your preferred work location, and you can control your day! You are in charge of your holidays and vacation, as well as your overtime work! You will also choose your working hours. Are you someone who wants to work from 9-5? Or maybe you want to work on the weekends? The choice is entirely up to you!

PS: Those who end up working at a beauty salon may work the typical shift, but they will have their weekends off! Unfortunately, you might not have your Christmas or other holidays off, but you will get a bonus due to heavy traffic during these special days and special events!

Blowdryers are not what they used to be, and we can expect them to get fancy as time goes on. There is a blowdryer by RevAir ($399) which acts like a vacuum that pulls your strands and sucks all the excess moisture. Once the process is done, the hair is left looking a lot more smooth and frizz-free.

 

  1. Magic Mirrors

Beauty Industry Employs More Than the Law and Social Work Sectors

Choosing your career path is one of the hardest decisions that you will ever have to make. A lot of young teens can have difficulties sticking to only one school or college. The sad part is, we can’t really make a firm decision while in our teens. This is why you should always explore your options, and even go to some additional courses even when you are in your 30s! It is okay to change your mind, and always be open to learning new skills.

Top 5 Facts That Even Those Who Hate Numbers Will Find Interesting 

  1. The Selfie Culture

The UK economy can thank the selfie culture for helping it reach some astonishing numbers. After tagging some beauty products on IG and sharing their tips & tricks with the world, a lot of famous actresses & singers have helped the UK beauty industry reach the net worth of £30 billion. In fact, the British beauty industry employs nearly 370,000 while still supporting around 220,000 more people than those that work in the law and social work sectors do.

  1. Massive Online Shopping

Online shopping became a huge trend in the last 5-8 years. Sharing images on social media allows everyone to get their wanted product while being only one click away! In fact, the beauty industry ten years ago has had the worth of £18 billion, compared to the £27.2 billion in 2018! Social media can contribute and change the minds of many while pushing them in shopping or at least browsing through many different beauty channels and web-pages.

  1. Influencers Have Changed The Game

Social media influencers play a great part in spreading a good word as well as a story about a specific beauty product. Nowadays companies can pay for a short AD, an Instagram story, or even a post of some moms, teens, or beauty lovers. Once others notice it, the influencer can even get some percentage from the manufacturer since they’ve helped with the promotion, exploitation, as well as with selling of the product.

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Jobs For Anyone In 2018

One report shows that the beauty industry has helped and supported 590,500 jobs in 2018. This is equal to one in every 60 jobs in the UK. There is also the tax revenue, where the beauty industry contributed £7 billion in the UK! Once you combine this with the salaries of nurses or midwives, it is equivalent to 250,000 salaries! You can expect even higher numbers in the upcoming 2020.

  1. Beauty Salons & Beauty Employees Growth

Beauty 100 Years Ago VS Beauty Today

Beauty & makeup has evolved throughout the years. Nowadays you can find over 1,000 makeup brands, vegan & cruelty-free options, foundation colours catered towards every skin type, and products that work on both men and women!

However, it wasn’t that easy years ago. Here are some of the most unusual beauty trends, which were huge 100 years back.

 Top 6 Items That Women Loved For Beauty Purposes

  1. Henna Was Overused

https://www.freepik.com/free-photo/girl-hairdresser-parlor-having-coloring-procedure_1915616.htm#page=1&query=hair%20coloring&position=13

Applying henna to your hair is pretty common among women who want a natural and organic solution. If you dislike bleach and box-dye, you can always reach for henna! However, years back, henna was used to outline the eyes! It was some form of a shadow, which probably was impossible to remove and wash out. Women ended up with stained eyes, while now you can use any form of eyeshadow – from liquid to powder, as well as glitter – all which are safer to use than henna.

  1. Belladonna

Belladonna is a plant which is also known as the deadly nightshade. Nowadays it is used for pain and is an active ingredient in some medication, while years back women used it to add softness to their eyes. Prolonged use of this ingredient had an impact on some women, where they would end up with hallucinations, and a rapid heartbeat.

  1. Lemons

Since concealer wasn’t a thing back in the day, people had to use some other, weird, ways to brighten up their skin. There was no loose powder either, and you couldn’t purchase a foundation that was lighter than your skin tone. In order to achieve that brighter appearance, a lot of women used lemon juice on their faces. However, nowadays, this move is not suggested nor recommended by dermatologists.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Wax

Wax was used in many different ways. Some women used it to give their skin some shine, and others have coated their lashes in it to separate them, and to give them volume! Only years later women started to experience with charcoal which would give them matte black lashes.

  1. Rose Water

Rose water is used in some creams nowadays. However, before it was used to treat inflammation as well as dehydration of the skin. Women would apply raw rose fragrance to their skin in hopes that it wouldn’t break them out, and that it would do the opposite!

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Beet Juice

We are well aware that beet stains are impossible to remove, but this didn’t bother women 100 years ago. The beet juice was used to achieve any form of color – around your cheeks, lips, or even as an eyeshadow! It would take them days to remove the stain from their skin, and all they had to use was soap & water! Luckily nowadays, you can easily remove your makeup with 5-6 different kinds of makeup removers.

Being a makeup artist means having patience, as well as a mind of steel. Persistence is what creates an amazing makeup artist, and a beauty expert. Some days you will be doing only bridal looks, but at one point (and if the opportunity presents itself) you will work on a movie set! These sets can take 10-12 hours of your time, but your overtime is paid, and the opportunity itself is great for developing a new skill set!

https://www.freepik.com/free-photo/woman-applying-eye-shadow-model_5823356.htm#page=1&query=makeup%20artist&position=17

So many makeup artists are worried about their pricing, as well as how to present it to their clients. At first, know that it is okay to work for a low fee or even for free! You are gaining experience, getting exposure, and getting to know the world itself. Months later, you will be able to bill some gigs in one way, and others in another. Always ask yourself, how much is this job worth to you? It’s okay to switch up your prices per client, just be clever about it.

  1. Up-Close & Personal Is The Way

Being up-close and personal is the way to get to know a person, but to also build a specific bond. Some makeup artists can even expend their expertise and can do makeup on sets & films while doing prosthetics and Sci-fi looks. In these moments, you get to paint someone’s body, and you get to know them a lot deeper. Some artists can even end up gaining a friend, especially if you two hit it off.

  1. Working At A Shop Can Be An Advantage

Those who dislike what their city or country can offer can find a solution by looking into some online courses. Every makeup course can vary in length from 1-2 months to 1-2 years! Shorter courses are usually a bit more intense, and longer courses are for those who are not in a rush.

 

 

 

 

  1. You Are Always Investing In Your Kit

Buying the cheapest makeup is a solution at first, but not as you develop your skills. Clients will always seek and ask for something new & modern in your makeup kit. This is why it is crucial to build it up as time goes by. However, the more money you invest in your kit, the higher the pricing for your services should be!

Top 6 Misconceptions About Nails Which Your Client Will Definitely Ask About

Women love to talk to their nail artists and nail techs during the 60-90 minute session. Getting gels, manicures, acrylics or pedicures can be time-consuming, which is why girls love to talk during their appointment. Some talk about their personal problems, while others have interesting comments or questions regarding nails. There are many different myths and misconceptions about manicures and nail treatments. We are here to debunk all of them, and give you answers! Keep on reading!

 

Top 6 Common Misconecaptions About Nails 

 

  1. A Set Of Fake Nails Will Ruin Natural Nails

No fake nails can ruin your natural nails. However, some habits that people do can make an impact. Nail enhancements are applied to your natural nail, as you probably know by now. However, the product does not penetrate the lunula (the moon of the nail). You are always growing new nails, and you can’t damage your new grown-in part so quickly. What can ruin your nails is a fungi infection, improper care, biting habits, as well as lifting and taking off the product on your own.

 

  1. Acrylics Are Hazardous

A lot of people believe that acrylic nails are hazardous because they have a strong odor that can leech into your bloodstream. However, this is far from the truth. The chemicals can have a scent, this depends on the type that your nail artist is using. However, the person who is more in trouble is the nail tech, since they are constantly inhaling nail particles. This is why you see them wearing masks, filters, and using ventilation when at the salon.

 

  1. You Should Get Gel Nails Since They Are Better For You

Some believe that gels are way better than powder or acrylic nails. You can experiment with different kinds of gel polishes, nowadays there are many different kinds on the market. However, all of these are pretty similar to acrylics since they come from the same family. On the other hand, some nail artists believe that gels are way trickier to remove than the acrylics. The removal process can be a bit more complicated as well as painful than with the acrylics.

 

  1. Your Nail Plate Will Grow Thinner

You’ve probably heard your mom say this a thousand times before, right? This is just something that older generations can’t seem to shake off. However, your nail matrix (moon) will determine the nail thickness. As you know it by now, the nail bed is made with keratin cells, which need protein-based foods to grow thicker, larger & stronger. This means that proper nutrition can determine the length as well as the thickness of your nails. Nothing else.

 

  1. Your Nails Can’t Breathe

By adding artificial layers on top of your natural ones, your nails will be a lot softer, weaker, and they won’t be able to breathe? Here’s some news for you: nails can’t breathe in the first place! Every nail plate you have is made with 100 layers of dead keratin cells! It can take up to 3-6 months for your nails to fully grow out, which means that allowing your nail to rest or breathe won’t do much since this is a slow process.

 

  1. You Can Get Fungal Infections

Fungal infections are linked to bacteria that you pick up underneath your nails. If you work with messy products, you forget to clean your tools, and you bite your nails – you are in trouble of getting a fungal infection. The actual nail application has nothing to do with the irritation of your nails. As long as your nail artist has used clean and sterile tools (and both of you have washed your hands) you will avoid infections and bacteria.

How The ‘Diamond Gap’ Fingernail Test Can Help You Determine Early Signs Of Cancer

Push your nails together and press your index fingers against each other. Once you do that, tell us – can you see a small tiny diamond-shaped window of light?

This unusual test will tell you if you have lung cancer, according to Cancer Research. The so-called ”finger clubbing” happens in 35% of people with non-small cell lung cancer and with 4% of people who have small cell lung cancer.

https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.womenshealth.com.au%2Fmedia%2F18403%2Ffinger-head.jpg&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.womenshealth.com.au%2Fdiamond-gap-finger-nail-test-lung-cancer&docid=E85DI5jxnJ9VgM&tbnid=aZ8PtijTA-ZMHM%3A&vet=10ahUKEwi1i8Wnw8vmAhXBZVAKHaqsCjoQMwhKKAMwAw..i&w=1500&h=1000&bih=657&biw=1366&q=diamond%20gap%20fingernail%20test&ved=0ahUKEwi1i8Wnw8vmAhXBZVAKHaqsCjoQMwhKKAMwAw&iact=mrc&uact=8

So, how can this show you anything? Well, the finger clubbing means that the base of your nail bed is a lot softer and the skin will become super shiny around the nail. The ends of the fingers can also change and become larger as well as longer. All of these factors can contribute to your diamond gap test, and can cause your nails to lose their shape.

If you can easily press your nails against each other, you have the Schamroth’s window and your nails are not clubbed.

Of course, having curved nails does not necessarily mean that you have lung cancer. If you have been coughing for up to 2-3 weeks, or even worse – coughing blood, been experiencing a lack of energy, as well as the loss of appetite, you could and should visit your doctor.

Also, always talk about your nail shape with your manicurist. If they are experienced enough, they will give you some insight.

London Bombing Survivor Opens A Hairdresser Salon – Here Is Her Inspirational Story

This incredible story takes us back on July 7, 2005. During a terrorist attack, a woman called Shelly Line survived a bombing attack while being only 3 meters away from the actual explosion! The explosion happened at the popular King’s Cross, and the 49-year-old was incredibly lucky to get out alive.

During the attack, 52 people have died, which has made an impact on Shelly. That was heartbreaking since no one really got the opportunity to see another day or share their potential, and she ended up wondering ”How & why did I survive?”

About three weeks ago, Shelly has opened up the first-ever community salon on Magdalen Street in Norwich. Her primary goal was to make others happy and to use her potential to the fullest. She wanted to make others happy, while investing time, thought, effort & care into every single detail.

The salon works in an unusual way where their clients pay a non-profit fee for services. The name of the salon is The Hair Care Share, where the services start at £30, and everyone is encouraged to contribute any additional amount. This extra money funds different hair services for those in need. By doing so, Shelly is able to give anyone the hairstyle of their dreams, the cut, or a set of highlights! And having clean & healthy hair should be everyone’s basic right.

Shelly was also diagnosed with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) in 2005, but this never stopped her from working as a hairdresser and following her dreams. Before this incident, she worked as a hairdresser in Norwich and London and has been one of the top 10 hairdressers at L’Oreal.

How To Do NYE Party Makeup Looks

If you need inspiration for this NYE glam, we will present the top three most-popular looks. In December, a lot of women will be wearing red lipsticks, as well as golden shadows. However, how about you put these two looks aside and do them only for Christmas? NYE demands a different approach, as well as bolder and different looks, like the following ones:

  1. Glitter Cut Crease

A glitter cut-crease is perfect for women who love dramatic looks. If you are planning on wearing a sequin dress – pair it along with a bright glittery eye! This makeup can be worn by anyone, and it will take you around 60 minutes to achieve this glam.

Glitter Smokey Eyes With Nude Lipgloss #glitterpromlook #nudelips Are you searching for the trendiest prom makeup ideas to be the real Prom Queen? We have collected simple natural, dramatic, Hollywood glamour and many other makeup ideas for your inspiration. #prommakeup #makeupideas #glamourmakeup #naturalmakeup Smokey Eye With Glitter, Silver Glitter Eye Makeup, Silver Eyeshadow, Green Smokey Eye, Simple Smokey Eye, Smoky Eye For Blue Eyes, Smokey Eyeshadow, Blue Eyeshadow For Brown Eyes, Brown Matte Lipstick

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/AWba-ZLDa8uby5oKhJIx6SY6_5LZRbRDiHuags2f-fzTRl4mYfFZJOI/

Always start with your eyes when you are playing around with glitter. Make sure you prep your eyelids with either a concealer or with a shadow base.

Apply a brown matte shadow into the crease. Work it upwards with a round fluffy brush. Once the color is blended, cut the crease with a flat brush. Use, yet again, concealer, and carve out the lid to achieve the perfect black canvas – this is where you’ll be placing glitter.

Pack on glitter with a flat brush. Your glitter can be any color (try and match it with the color of your dress). Finish off the look with your mascara or even with your false lashes.

Keep your skin bronzed, as well as glowy. Lip-wise, a nude is always a good choice.

 

  1. A Pop Of Color

A pop of color is usually a bold statement look, worn and loved by younger women as well as teens. This trend was brought back to the scene this year when Kylie Jenner started to post and enjoy a brighter (yet unusual) pop of color in her inner corner. If you are a fan of quick looks, know that it will take you around 45 minutes to achieve this glam.

https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fpbs.twimg.com%2Fmedia%2FDwqeNsRU0AA6SIf.jpg&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitter.com%2Flustrelux%2Fstatus%2F1083852621809516544&docid=gvc4x9mZSnko0M&tbnid=_If1TcWEpRtoVM%3A&vet=10ahUKEwiX37am27zmAhXB26QKHdQdBOoQMwhhKAYwBg..i&w=634&h=793&bih=608&biw=1366&q=pink%20inner%20corner&ved=0ahUKEwiX37am27zmAhXB26QKHdQdBOoQMwhhKAYwBg&iact=mrc&uact=8

You can do your primer & foundation first because the eye portion is simple, and it won’t cause any unwanted mess. Apply your favorite base products with your trusted tools (can be a sponge or a brush).

Since the emphasis is on the pop of color, go for a bright pink or coral blush! This color will suit anyone who is trying to achieve a radiant, youthful, as well as glowy outcome.

Once your base is done, begin doing your eyes. We recommend that you stick with a light beige color on the lid (or any color which suits your skin tone the best). Blend it in with a fluffy brush.

Now, pop a hint of color into your inner corner. This should be a bright shimmery shade (blue, pink, yellow, orange). Make sure you pair up the color with the color of your dress.

Also, go for a statement lip color. Something crazy & vibrant that matches your eyes will be a full strike!

  1. Juicy Red Lips

Lastly, if you like playing around with lipsticks instead of shadows, this makeup look will suit you. If you have bigger lips or you are a fan of red lipstick, make sure you go for this solution out of three. Mature women, as well as those who like quick & easy looks, will easily do this glam, in less than 30 minutes!

Make sure you prime your skin and give it moisture. Those who are planning on spending 5+ hours outside the house during the NYE will need high-quality products.

Spritz your skin with a setting spray after your base is done. A bit of bronzer will suit your look, as well as simple brushed out brows. Women who prefer highlight can stick with this as their go-to instead of a bronzer, or instead of a blush.

Keep your eyeshadow neutral and simple. In fact, you can even apply a matte powder just to set your oils in place! Don’t forget 2 layers of your favorite mascara, and add only a bit of shimmer underneath your brows, as well as in your inner corner.

Lastly, it is time for your lips! Are you a fan of dark red lipsticks, mauves, purples, or burgundy colors? Well, either way, we recommend lining your lips with your favorite lip pencil. After that apply your matte lipstick by sweeping the color on your upper and lower lip. Once this dries down, reach for a mesmerizing gloss! Two layers will give so much life to your lips, as well as shine!
