Cosmetology: The Beauty Within You
Cosmetology is the professional skill and practice of beautifying the hair, face, skin and body. Cosmetologists bring out the beauty within each person by working on the human body (Allure). The process is not easy, it involves many practice, talent, and patients. Each category has its own steps and techniques. Cosmetology is not only to beautify but also to heal the human body. They are like doctors without the doctor’s degree. It is very important to keep the body feeling beautiful, relaxed and healthy, but hard to do on your own (Allure). This is why cosmetology is important. They ...view middle of the document...
A skin care specialist has to focus on making clients' skin better by facials and massages. Also have to advice clients on how to take care of their skin, and what cosmetic items are suitable for their skin type. A manicurist would be required to carry out duties which include coloring, cleaning, and treating customers' nails, and advising the customers how to take good care of their nails (Cosmetologist). Being a cosmetologist is not an easy job, it’s not just cosmetology there are many different fields or categories.
The main category that makes up cosmetology is the hair. (Allure) How the hair looks is always most important for the woman. It is also the most difficult part of cosmetology. There are many steps to cutting the hair (How To…). The first is to know the tools. Each hair style or technique involves different kind of tools. Hair shears/scissors are mostly used for others maybe a razor or special designed hair shears/scissors. For a guy’s cut cosmetologist would use a basic hair clipper set or shears/scissors (How To…). The second step would be to get to know the client, what they like, what they do, and their everyday life. This helps figure out what kind of hair style will fit them the best (Allure). When starting on the hair you always want to begin with sectioning it. This could be done many different ways. It all depends on how the hair falls or what kind of shape the head is. The reason for starting with sectioning is to keep things neat. When it comes to the cutting there are many things to keep in mind. The desired hair length, thick or thin hair, how much damage the hair has and so on. All of these depend on what kind of
scissors should be used or what techniques to do (How To…). Also coloring the hair is very important. It is not easy to do. There is a lot of math involved and knowing the mixing colors.
One small mistake like adding a little more color then needed, can lead to severe damage. It is highly recommended for hair coloring to be left for professional cosmetologist to do. (Allure) It is not impossible to fix bad hair cuts or color but it does take some time and a lot more thinking. When a girl gets her hair cut or colored she feels like she can be herself, express who she is (Allure). Cosmetologist help for this to happen.
Another way of feeling beautiful is through makeup. Makeup has been around since ancient Egyptians used it. They created the world's first cosmetics to the scientifically advanced products of today that can do everything from hide pores, smooth complexions, and turn the pale green of your eyes a vivid shade of emerald, makeup has been a big part of humankind for thousands of years (History of Makeup). Women did many different home techniques to change their face features for example they used berries to stain their lips or coal to darken their eyes (History of Makeup). When using makeup it covers up the flaws on a person’s face. It can also bring out a good feature on a person...
