G-Dragon vs. Lee Hong Ki – Who Looks Better with the ‘Croissant Hair’? –

G-Dragon’s Sensational Hair. Right before Big Bang’s comeback, photos of G-Dragon’s hairstyle was released to the public. The hairstyle itself was sensational. One side of his head was shaved all the way up and the long hair on the opposite side of his head went all the way down to his chin. G-Dragon was always known as the first one to try something new and unique since he first debuted. Even though his sense of style has been praised upon by his fans, this hair style shocked the fans rather than impress them. G-Dragon can pull of anything though. He could pull off wearing female clothing, play around with outrageous clothing and can even pull off ridiculous hairstyles

Los estudiantes que desean completar su educación rápidamente eligen el programa a tiempo completo mientras los estudiantes que ya están trabajando pueden asistir a tiempo parcial completando sus clases en el horario nocturno. Para asegurar su graduación, todos los estudiantes necesitan completar un mínimo de horas de entrenamiento. Ellos pasan algunas horas en el aula, aprendiendo teoría y técnicas de estilo y color en la clínica. Las escuelas ofrecen flexibilidad total en términos de horario para que los estudiantes puedan completar el curso y seguir con sus trabajos particulares.

Las escuelas de belleza usan métodos y técnicas de educación diferentes como demostraciones en vivo por profesores capacitados, videos, ejemplos del texto educacional e ilustraciones. Algunas escuelas adoptan un planteamiento de 3 fases: entrenamiento básico, adaptivo y creativo. El entrenamiento básico incluye una introducción al estilismo de pelo, maquillaje y cuidado de uñas.

Además, los cosmetólogos también ganan una buena cantidad de dinero basado en las propinas. Otros ingresos vienen cuando trabajan free-lance en familiares y amigos.

A diferencia de la educación tradicional, el entrenamiento y la educación que los estudiantes reciben en las escuelas de belleza son mucho más prácticos. Esta es una de las razones mayores por cual hay tantas personas estudiando en escuelas de belleza.

Las escuelas de belleza y escuelas de cosmetología son definitivamente la mejor fuente de educación para emprender una carrera prometedora.

Kim Kardashian Inspired Nude Lips Are In This Fashion Season

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

ts-80402116As the calendar prepares to turn to spring and the fruit begins to ripen on the vines, women all over the globe have been awaiting the next hot lip color that was to be revealed as the temperatures start to heat up. To the surprise of many, designers threw the fashion world a giant curveball in recent weeks as starlets and runway queens like Kim Kardashian have been spotted entirely devoid of lipstick altogether. Indeed, nude lips are going to be seen by the masses in the coming months.

The “nude lips” trend has exploded onto the International fashion scene and has been openly embraced by many of the most important figures in the industry. The look certainly conjures up mental associations of nakedness and purity that drive men absolutely wild, but there is a bit more to the experimentation with de-emphasizing the face’s most striking natural feature.

Companies have began to realize that keeping lips pure and often coated in nothing more than a thin layer of gloss is an excellent way to establish a sense of purity, innocence and even an angelic status in their models. While this can obviously garner attention and create visceral reactions in some, it also creates an immediate opportunity for a striking and visually memorable contrast with the wardrobe or with makeup applied to other areas of the face.

In recent years, the obsession with enhancing the look of the eyes through eyeliners and other tricks has taken on a life all its own, and it now reaches so far as to dominate the typical designer and makeup artist’s approach to creating a look. Many artists are choosing to keep the lips a natural color so that they can absolutely go wild with colors and designs surrounding the eyes without making a smooth and beautiful face look like an overly cluttered painting.

As is the case in the fashion world, trends move quicker than chartered jets from Milan to New York City.

Labels from Derick Lam to Tommy Hilfiger have already hopped on the nude-lipped train and are ready to ride it for as long as the public embraces the refreshing trend. The Hilfiger team recently trotted out a model to display their Spring 2012 collections that was adorned in only a clear gloss and light blush coupled with a swinging ponytail, and their minimalist approach was met with acclaim for hitting its mark in displaying the raw power of natural beauty unleashed.

Thousands of women that exist on the very cutting edge of style have already holstered their tiny red cylinders for the time being, anxious to embrace their natural roots and show the world their unaltered smiles within the context of being fashionable and trendy.

The next event in the fashion chain of evolution will be for manufactures to release a slew of products that are designed to enhance the look, shine and perhaps shape of your lips without using anything more than clear gloss.

If you are looking for a start into the fashion trending industry, finding a beauty school or hair school might be the best idea.

Can you attend beauty school online?

Unfortunately, there’s not much of an avenue for online beauty schools right now.

  • Once you’re in beauty school or you’ve already graduated, there are tons of online cosmetology study resources available to help you review and further prepare to take your cosmetology license exam.
  • If your dream is to advance your beauty career and possibly one day open your own salon or spa, it would benefit you to get a business degree, and there are loads of online business degrees that are available. You could further your education without losing time in the salon.

The Greatest Beauty School Commercial Ever

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

This hilarious beauty school commercial is part of a series called “I Love Local Commercials”. The series is being created by Rhett&Link (Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal), a North Carolina-based comedy duo and life-long best friends.

To be part of the series, local businesses are nominated or nominate themselves for a free commercial. All costs are provided for by Rhett&Link’s sponsor, Microbelt. So, yes, this is a real school and a semi-real commercial.

According to Rhett&Link’s behind the scenes video, the duo visited Salt Lake City Community College’s campus but weren’t feeling inspired to create the commercial until they spotted the Barbering and Cosmetology school sign advertising $2 men’s haircuts. Upon investigation, they “quickly became entranced by the strange collection of fake heads and the students meticulously styling them.” And a commercial was born!
