new graduates of beauty school, please look in the mirror!

Dear Students-

It is a common myth that because one has wild hair that it is good looking wild hair. Crazily colored hair does not make you automatically alternative. I have seen a fair amount of newly licensed students, and it has left me wondering.

When one is in beauty school, experiments on yourself and others will inevitably take place. Go for it! Hair is cut off, shaved off, bleached, bleached and bleached again. You look different than when you entered those doors for the first time. More daring. But that does not mean that salon owners will be impressed. Salon life is nothing like beauty school. Not everything goes. Salon owners do not just look for an alternative hairstyle as the mark of a creative. The assistant/apprentice needs the whole hairstyle and color to look not only cohesive but polished. Like a professional did it. So please take a good long look at yourself before you start applying for positions. What does your hair really say about you? Does it say you are punk rock, or does it say you were attacked by a lawnmower in the dark of night? Would they, and you yourself, accept this level of work on a paying client in their establishment, and send them out the door proud to say such? Grandma may say you look radical, but As The Curl Turns believes that a step back and an honest appraisal will be much more beneficial.

Kind Regards,


p.s- breadcrumbs can be collected and made at home by emptying your toaster catch once a week. Place crumbs in an airtight tupperware and before you know it you will have enough for a dinner.
