    3 Tips for Succeeding in Beauty School

    Last updated 6 years ago

    Your journey through beauty school is designed to turn you into the best hairstylist you can be. Make the most of your cosmetology school education by working hard to succeed. Use the following tips to enjoy your education to the fullest:

    1.      Ask for Help

    Teachers and administrators are there to help you. Whether you need a financial aid to pay your tuition or information about job placements, ask when you need help. Trying to power through the program on your own can leave you missing out on valuable knowledge. If there is something that you do not understand, ask for clarification!

    2.      Take Care of Your Equipment

    During a cosmetology program, the beauty school will provide you with equipment that helps you learn the skills you need to succeed in the beauty industry. Once you receive your bag of equipment, which includes scissors, curling irons, rollers, products, manicure kits, and textbooks, it is important to take care of it. The better care you take of your equipment, the more useful it will be toward your education.

    3.      Stay Dedicated to Learning

    Throughout your beauty school education, it is important to continue to build onto your knowledge base. Practice your new skills. Look through hair and style magazines to stay on top of the latest trends and hair tips. Talk to your teachers about their careers, and ask for advice. There are an unlimited amount of resources available to you at beauty school—it is up to you to take advantage of them.

    With the high-quality education you will receive at Midway Paris Beauty School of New York, you can soon begin a career in a field that you love. We teach you the skills you need to succeed. Visit us online or call (718) 418-2790 to learn more today!

    Tips for Recreating Kim Kardashian's Bohemian Braids

    Last updated 6 years ago

    After you graduate from beauty school, you have to know how to give your clients popular hairstyles that they will love. The boho-chic braid is a style that celebrities like Kim Kardashian are currently rocking. With the right tools, you can give this style to a client with any kind of hair.
    Separate some hair and clip it off to the side. Start the braid at the natural part. Once you have completed the braid, use bobby pins in an “x” formation to lock it into place. Replace the hair you separated at the beginning and spray the final look with hairspray. Watch this video to see the process in action.
    Midway Paris Beauty School of New York gives you the education you need to become a successful hairstylist. With our cosmetology school education and your talent, you can become a professional hairdresser. To learn more, call us at (718) 418-2790.

    A Day in the Life of Professional Hairstylist

    Last updated 6 years ago

    If you’re unhappy with your current job and want to take steps to further your employment opportunities, it may be time to consider a career as a hairstylist or cosmetologist. While attending a beauty school or cosmetology school will provide you with the education and tools you need to succeed, it is important to consider what you can expect on a daily basis as a hairstylist:
    • Preparing Your Station 
    Your work day will start by setting up your station with the appropriate tools needed to complete your daily tasks. After you have prepared your station, you will check in with your first client. 
    • Performing Services
    One of the greatest things about working as a professional hairdresser is that each day is different. You will have the opportunity to perform a number of services each day to a number of different clients, so you will never be bored on the job. In addition to providing routine cuts for scheduled clients, you may be asked to perform a number of services for walk-in clients. In a given day, you may be asked to perform a child’s first haircut, a makeup tutorial, or even a sophisticated updo. Working as a hairstylist also gives you the opportunity to continually perfect your skills, as you are providing various services on a daily basis. 
    • Closing 
    After a full day in the salon, it will be time to close for the night. It is important to clean up your work-station after each client to maintain your level of professionalism and make end-of-the-day cleaning an easier task.
    Here at Midway Paris Beauty School in New York City, we provide you with the skills necessary to succeed in a wide variety of beauty and cosmetology services, including hair cooling, permanent waving, chemical hair straightening, and proper sanitation and sterilization techniques. Get on the road to a better career by contacting us online or calling us at (718) 418-2790. 

    3 Men's Hairstyles We Hope Don't Make a Comeback

    Last updated 6 years ago

    A number of individuals think that creating the perfect men’s hairstyle is an easy task, but a lot of mistakes can easily be made—regardless of the length of your client’s locks. In fact, some of the worst hairstyles of all time have been male-specific styles. Make sure that your beauty school clients do not repeat history with this overview on men’s hairstyles that we hope never make a comeback:

    1.      The Mullet

    The “business in the front, party in the back” slogan may have been acceptable during the 1980s, but a mullet in today’s world is considered one of the worst hairstyle faux-pas.  Despite its popularity among celebrities such as John Stamos, David Hasslehoff, Patrick Swayze, and Chuck Norris, the mullet and its associated variations are definitely long past their heyday.

    2.      The Male Perm

    The disco era gave way to a number of embarrassing fads, from bellbottoms and gold pinky rings to the male perm. Unfortunately, the end of disco was not the end of the male perm, which was still popular long into the 80s.

    3.      The Wayne’s World

    The long-haired rocker hairstyle may have been around for years, but it was definitely heightened after the release of the cult-classic movie Wayne’s World. However, unless your client is the lead singer for a metal band, chances are that the long-haired, head-banging grunge look is not for him.

    Whether you’re interested in specializing in hairdressing or cosmetology, Midway Paris Beauty School in New York is the perfect solution. Our hairdressing and cosmetology school kits contain all of the tools you’ll need to get started on your new career.
