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!

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.

Red hot careers in beauty industry

The beauty industry is constantly changing, developing, and is coming out with new & innovative treatments. In 2019 you can pursue your career in some of the most unusual beauty fields. Here are our 4 different and unique suggestions.

 

  1. Mortuary makeup artist

 

If someone is off to an open-casket funeral, most of the times you will notice that the deceased is wearing makeup. This application is done by the mortuary makeup artist who knows how to bring back life & color to the body & face. They usually stick with something natural, with a hint of blush, as well as a subtle lip color.

 

  1. Airbrush tanner

 

Spray tanners usually work at the salons, but they can also do private home visitations. This way of fake-tanning is safer than actual tanning, or even sun-bed tanning. This is because you are not exposing yourself to getting skin cancer. The tan is applied with a spritz, and when done the right way it looks very natural & shimmery. You won’t look uneven or patchy, as if you would if you were spray tanning on your own.

 

  1. The follicle tattoo artist

 

Permanent makeup sounds scary, but it is ideal for men & women who have thin hair, or any hair loss issues. By getting Scalp micropigmentation you can get a tattoo of your hairline in less than 3 sessions. These are done and achieved by doing dots on the scalp and are a better solution than hair transplants.

 

  1. Face feeler

 

This profession is exactly what it sounds like! There are some people who evaluate how some products smell, feel, taste, and sound. This job requires you to have strong senses, as well as sensory evaluation. This person feels someone’s legs, face, skin, lips, or any other body part just after they’ve applied the product on top of the skin. After that they give their opinions and contribute to the development of the product.
