Choosing the Right Hairstyling School for Your Style
Most beauty salons try to keep up with the latest trends; however, some are better at it than others are. Chain-salons that have locations in many bigger cities are the most up-to-date, as far as cuts and styles go. Small neighborhood salons with older owners, who may also be the lead stylish, generally cater to the needs of their neighborhood population.
Look at the posters in the outside windows, for a clue as to how youthful the salon strives to be. Some clientele shun the trendy styles, preferring instead to stay true to their original styles and products. They know what they like and what looks good on them, so see no reason to change.
Beauty schools try to teach a mixture of both old ways, as well as new methods. Perms, for example, are much the same as ever, wrapping the whole head in perm rods, applying two separate solutions, waiting, and then rinsing. Only the solutions have changed, generally for the better. Chemicals are less harsh, and treatments for manageability are improved.
When enrolled in a beauty school, the student will have a chance to pursue the area they are most interested in, as well as learning the fundamentals to pass the state board exam.
