Graduating High School? Here are Your Next Steps

Congratulations to all the high school seniors who are getting ready to graduate this summer! It’s an exciting time where it seems that all you can think about is receiving your diploma with all of your friends by your side. Be proud of what you’ve accomplished so far but don’t forget to think about what happens after all the parties and celebrations are over. Maybe you’ve already decided you want to pursue cosmetology after high school. You’re just not sure how to start preparing for it. Luckily for you, we’ve got your guide on how to get ready for this next stage of your life. Follow these tips now so you can head into graduation with an idea of how you can start your beauty journey!

Do Some Research

We know that you may be sick of doing research for your regular school projects, so this step might seem like something you want to skip. Senioritis anyone? Trust us though, this is going to be worth it. Moving on from high school and eventually entering the working world is a big deal, which means you should definitely take the time to find out what that could mean for you. Cosmetology is a growing industry, so it’s important that you discover what area of it you’re most passionate about. Looking up the job opportunities that are available for cosmetologists can be the best part of your research.

Look Into Financial Assistance

It’s no secret that investing in your education after high school is no joke. That’s why there are resources available for students to help them on their path to becoming a cosmetologist. If you’re worried about investing in cosmetology school, then find out if you qualify for financial assistance*. It just goes back to making sure that you’ve done enough research so you can feel prepared for what comes after high school. We know that this step may seem intimidating but we’re happy to answer any questions you have.

Look at Your Classes Through a Cosmetology Lens

That’s right, your classes can be helpful with your cosmetology goals. If you’re taking an art subject right now, chances are that you’re stretching your creativity to create something that you can feel proud of. Hey, that’s one of the many admirable qualities that cosmetologists should strive to have. You may even be taking classes that teach skills many don’t think about when considering cosmetology. Just think about all the chemicals that are used to color people’s hair. There’s a lot of science that goes into making a guest’s hair that perfect platinum blonde shade. You may already be learning skills and traits that are needed to be a cosmetologist, so start thinking about how they could help you in beauty school.

Tell People

It’s easy to get excited by an idea. However, sometimes we can start to get bogged down by doubts. Those can be normal, which is why it’s never a bad idea to tell friends and family your plans after graduating high school. You deserve a support system to help you along the process and keep you on track with following through on your goals. Sometimes people may even need to hear their plans out loud to convince themselves it’s something they can go after. That’s what family and friends are there for.

women talking with each other

Schedule a Tour

This is an important step because it’s what all that research you did was leading up to. When you take a tour of the school you can see exactly what you’re getting into. Not only can you get a first-hand look at the school’s atmosphere but you can also ask any question you may have and receive an immediate answer. The atmosphere of the school and what the classes could look like are just some of the things you should be thinking of. As we said, school after high school is different and this could be a great opportunity to get a feel for what it’s like.

Make Us Your Next Step

Now that you know some steps you could be doing now, it’s time to start the process. Get a start on your future beyond high school and contact us to find out more about our cosmetology program. The team at The Salon Professional Academy, (TSPA) Holland, can’t wait to discuss this new and exciting stage in your life!

What to Ask

A tour is the perfect time to ask questions and receive real-time answers. Here are a few suggestions for things to ask:

  • What are the educators like?
  • How would you describe your school’s culture?
  • How is the curriculum formatted?

  • What percent of students graduate?
  • What percent of students pass the state licensing exam?

Getting the Most Out of Your Tour

During a tour, it shouldn’t just be us asking you questions, or vice versa. This is the opportunity for us to get to know each other! We hope that every tour can be a back and forth conversation that’s valuable for both parties. Phone calls and emails are great for basic information, but nothing beats an in-person conversation. It’s the best way to get a feel for our students, educators, campus, and overall culture.

New Year New Hue

New hair, who dis? It’s that time, gurus: a new year, clean slate, fresh start, and fresh hair.
As you hustle to reach those goals, do it with a happy head of hair to match! Here’s our list of hues waiting for you to try in 2019.

Your Time to Shine

We may still be in the thick of those winter months, but you don’t need sun to shine! We love a good head of glossy locks in any season. Take the spotlight with a new hair shade that has dimension, body, and plenty of luster. Catch the light like you catch their eyes!

Diamonds and Rubies

Shine like the gem you are! If you are a platinum blonde, a bold redhead or have always wanted to try it, here’s some ‘gram-worthy inspo! Go bright white, ruby red, or even marry the two in a gorgeous ruby ‘do.

red to blonde ombre

Opal Hair

Love the idea of adding color but can’t pick just one? Try them all in a pastel-hued rainbow that shines exactly like a gorgeous opal! This BRILLIANT style is unique and still maintains subtle stunning tones. “Expensive taste”? You’re worth it!

24 Karat Sunset

Everyone loves a beautiful view and in this case, that’s you! No matter your current hair color, ask your stylist about warming up your look with golds, reds, and strawberry blondes. Represent vampy vacation hair anytime of year with multi-hued, sunny strands.

A Walking Sweet Treat

You are what you eat! Take your favorite treat and turn it into wearable inspo. Sweet!

Butterscotch Babe

Looking for low-maintenance? Think butterscotch: a fluid mix of creamy butter and warm brown sugar. It looks like sun kissed sand: a natural glow!

butterscotch sandy blonde

Honey ‘Do

Oh honey, you know you want to! And if that’s true, then you ‘do you. A reverse ombre or a bronde makeover adds the perfect oomf to lack-luster, dry winter hair. Maintain your current color with some added shine and life with a slightly-lighter glaze of honey.

Marshmallow Mane Dish

Dessert doesn’t have to be as small as a snack! Make it your MANE dish with icy platinum. Too much? Start small to keep it “mallow”. We love spicing up a dark hues with an unexpected splash of bright white. You’ll be looking sweeter than ever, sugar!

PB & Jealous?

We are going nuts for this jam! Contrasting colors are beautifully flattering. Pops of purple or blue compliment warm tones like blonde, red, or orange just like peanut butter compliments jelly! Pull some shades of plum, wine, or deep mahogany to dress up your everyday brunette.

Common Reasons People Don’t Commit to Beauty School

New things can be scary. Especially starting a new school or new job. If you’ve thought about attending The Salon Professional Academy (TSPA), Holland in the past, why did you never make the commitment? Was it worry about not being able to make friends? Were you worried about career opportunities? Whatever the reason was, you’re not alone. Here are a few common reasons that many people do not commit to beauty school.

Reason 1: Worries About Fitting In

When you’re starting something new, it’s normal to worry about fitting in. People might already have their set cliques and groups. Where will you fall into place? TSPA Holland provides a welcoming, safe environment for all students. We want everyone to feel secure and at home at our school. No matter what interests you or what background you come from, we want you to become a part of our TSPA family!

Reason 2: Concerned About Job Opportunities

Have you put off enrolling in beauty school because you don’t want just want to cut and style hair? Don’t worry! Receiving a cosmetology license does not limit you to becoming a hairstylist. In fact, there are various unique careers you can work in as a licensed cosmetologist. A few examples include:

  • Makeup artist
  • Salon owner
  • Colorist
  • Theatrical makeup artist
  • Editorial hair stylist
  • Beauty advisor
  • Beauty blogger

Reason 3: Afraid of Not Being Able to Earn Money

As one of the most lucrative and fastest growing industries, you can absolutely make a living by working in beauty. Beauty professionals have a variety of career options and there are always plenty of growth opportunities. Another great part about cosmetology is that beauty careers are often quite flexible. You don’t have to work a standard 9 to 5. Need to work evenings or weekends? That’s possible. If you want to rent a booth in a salon and build your own clientele, that’s also an option. You can even move into a more entrepreneurial role as a salon owner after you get a few years of experience under your belt. There are plenty of opportunities to make a living in the beauty industry, it all starts with a cosmetology license!

Reason 4: Misconceptions About the Word School

Maybe going to school has never been your favorite thing. University and other forms of postsecondary education are not for everyone. Beauty school can be a great choice for those who don’t want to pursue a traditional post-secondary education. TSPA Holland’s cosmetology program presents the chance to learn beauty application techniques, business strategies, and guest relations in a creative, fun environment. It’ll also put you alongside other people who share your interests and passion for beauty. Unlike four-year or two-year educational programs, our cosmetology program is designed to prepare you for a career in less than a year. This can be a great option for individuals who want to enter the workforce and start making money as soon as possible.

Reason 5: Intimidated By Beauty Culture

To some, the beauty industry can seem a little intimidating. It’s a world full of glamorous models, high-end products, expensive tools, and luxurious salons. But there’s so much more to this industry than glossy magazine spreads. Beauty is about community and growth. It’s about learning and expressing creativity. At the core of our beauty school lies a group of people who are passionate about the industry. We want our students to find future careers that they’ll love. At TSPA Holland, your success is our success.

Welcome to The Golden Globes

Now your look can be as down-to-earth as you are! We love universally flattering earthy shades like green, gray, beige, and ocean-blue. Glam it up with a little gold and you are good to GLOW.

Teal: The Real Deal

A rising popular shade like teal is another earthy tone that looks flattering on any complexion! Kick off the new year with a new ‘do.

Foiled Lips

Sick of the same nude shades? As pretty and promising as it is, why not mix it up with a little something new? Press gold leaf onto moistened lips, invest in a metallic lipstick, or dab on your favorite eyeshadow or glitter for an awesome, one-of-a-kind pucker.

Monochromatic

They say less is more! Picking even just a single color to work with can still turn heads. Those with brown eyes should try blues, purples, and ashy browns. Light-eyed ladies should try peach, gold, and honey-browns. Universal colors like pink, taupe, and champagne are great go-tos.

Makeup Inspired by Our 5 Fav Flowers!

Flowers, flowers, and even more flowers! Summer is in full bloom, and we are thrilled. This season we have been inspired by all of the beautiful floral that has taken over the earth, especially with the Holland Tulip Festival right behind us. We were so inspired by the gorgeous colors seen in the flowers at festival that we thought it was best to incorporate them into our makeup. From eyes to cheeks and down to our lips, here are five of our favorite makeup looks inspired by our favorite flowers!

Pretty Peonies

Pink Peonies in a sinkModel with blue eyes and pink blush looking at the camera
Peonies are known for symbolizing romance, good fortune, and compassion. But what most people don’t know is that Peonies are a symbol of bashfulness due to a Greek myth of Aphrodite’s affection towards Peonies causing her to become bashful.

In honor of all of the bashful Peonies in bloom, we are bringing color to our cheeks! Reds and pinks will bring color to your face and give you a more innocent look. Keep your eyes light with shimmer to complete the look.

Orange You Glad

Blackberry Lilies (orange flower with black freckles)Female model wearing orange eyeshadow
Don’t be scared to add some orange into your makeup routine. Surprisingly, orange works well for all eye colors and can really make them pop! Blackberry Lilies are meant to show innocence. However, with a pop of color like this, it’ll be hard to look innocent. Be bold and don’t be afraid to stand out with some orange. You’ll be glad you did.

Snow in Summer

White GardeniaFemale model looking off camera with white eyeliner on her eyes
White isn’t really seen as a “bold” or “unique” color, but once it is the focus of your makeup, things change. Dark or vibrant colors are usually used to emphasize your features. However, when you incorporate white to be the main color, your features will be striking! Follow the steps of the beautiful Gardenia flowers and its wisdom of love and purity to inspire you.

Lovely Lilac

Lilac on a vineFemale model with purple eyeshadow
A field of Lilacs is heaven on earth. Which is very fitting since Violet Lilacs are known for being spiritual flowers. Embrace the heavenly vibes and turn your makeup into something unearthly. Swap your angel wings for eyeliner wings. Line the bottom of your eyes in violet to bring a gorgeous more edgy vibe. Hey, angels can have a little edge to them!

Sun and Sunflowers

SunflowersFemale model with eyes closes and glossy yellow eyeshadowSunflowers. We couldn’t leave out the most summer flower there is. Sunflowers are sent to show adoration, loyalty, and strength. Sunflowers are known to be resilient because they can survive in difficult climates. Show your strength by incorporating yellow. This will bring warmth to your face and even a boost of confidence. To really add some more drama, seal the color with some gloss! This will really show off your color and your personality!

Show Us Your Skills!

Summer is a time to try new things and to work hard to perfect skills. Use this time to work on new looks, new techniques. Go outside and be inspired by nature and what this beautiful world is giving us! When you stop to smell the roses, keep an eye out. You might find your new go-to look. If makeup is your calling, you might want to consider our cosmetology program! Contact us to find out more information.

Why Choose a Future in the Beauty Industry?

Have you ever considered a future in the beauty industry? Whether you want to style hair, work as a makeup artist, or provide skin care services, the beauty industry is a great place for creative, outgoing people. Here are our top five reasons why you should choose a future in the beauty industry!

1. Help Others Feel Good

Ever had your day brightened up by a trip to the spa? Does visiting the hair salon make you feel like a new person? When you have a client who’s having a rough day, you can help them feel better. A new haircut, fresh blowout, or fun manicure can brighten up someone’s day and boost their confidence. You can create that positive vibe through your personality, skills, and creativity. Knowing that you made someone feel better with your talent can also lift your own self-esteem. This is just one of the possible rewards you can experience when you choose a future in the beauty industry.

2. Use Your Creativity

If you’ve always been creative and interested in things like beauty, art, fashion, and style, a future in the beauty industry could be ideal for you. Whether you choose cosmetology or esthetics, you’ll get a chance to use that creative mind of yours. You can learn intricate, beautiful hairstyles and makeup looks and recreate them on clients. For those interested in the latest skin care techniques and products, you can use that passion to improve clients’ skin. The beauty industry can be a great place for creative individuals to thrive.

3. Practice Customer Service

A job in the beauty industry can be great for people who are social butterflies. As a stylist in a salon, you’ll have different people in the chair every day, giving you plenty of chances to strike up conversations. If you work as a makeup artist or beauty advisor, you can talk to your client about what you’re doing with their makeup and teach them valuable skills. Skin care specialists consult with clients about their skin’s needs and provide recommendations. Whichever path appeals to you, the beauty industry can be a great environment if you’re a people person.

4. Flexible Scheduling

Jobs in the beauty industry often allow for flexible scheduling. If the typical nine to five doesn’t work for you, this could be a great choice for your future. Jobs in salons and spas often allow you to choose between working weekdays, evenings, and weekends. When it comes to your beauty education, The Salon Professional Academy (TSPA), Holland offers full-time and part-time programs to fit your needs.

5. Ever-Changing Work Days

When you have various clients with various needs, your workdays are rarely monotonous. One day you might be doing simple haircuts, while the next you could be creating an elaborate hairstyle for an event. Everyone who visits a stylist, makeup artist, or skin care specialist wants something different. You’ll get to use your creativity and skills each day to offer something unique to your client. Working in the beauty industry can keep you invested and engaged in your work as you continue to learn and grow.
