Haircutting One Oh One

30 August 2010
Soo today at school, we started learning about hair cutting. Wow. Its alot harder than it looks, to me anyway. When I see a stylist cut hair, they make it look so easy and effortless, but there's alot more to it than that. Learning how to hold your tools makes all the difference in the world. Its going to take a lot of practice for me to get the shears feel comfortable/natural in my hands, and I'm going to keep at it. I can't wait until we get our kits and can bring them home, because then I'm going to practice practice practice. Its won't be perfect for a while, though! ;D

I'm pretty psyched. I saw a rave review for Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetic's Lip Tar, so I decided to order some samples. I ordered Hush, Memento, Cha-Cha, and Divine. I can't wait for them to get here so I can test them out and review them!

Hope everyone's week is off to a great start!

Lisa Frank Nails, L.A. Colors Nail Polish

28 August 2010
I'm enjoying my weekend so far! I woke up early this morning, and didn't want to wake Brad, so I decided to browse some beauty Gurus online. I found a link on xsparkage to a tutorial for "Rainbow Leopard / Lisa Frank nails" and just fell so in love with the look that I just had to go out and buy some polish so I could try it out on my nails!

So while we were out and about today, we took a trip to Dollar Tree. Usually they have a very limited selection of nail polish, but today I got lucky. They had several colors of L.A. Colors' Color Craze. They were so pretty that I couldn't pick a few... I ended up getting 9. They are regularly $2 at, but are on sale for $1.49 each right now. I paid $1 for each at DT, so I think I got a great deal on them!

Here are the different colors I got. Sorry, I'm not sure of the shade names. The numbers on bottom don't match any shown on LA Colors website.

I chose three shades to recreate the design on my nails, plus New York Color's 119A Black Lace Creme to do the leopard print.

& Here's my finished recreation, though a little messy!

Phase 1, Week 2 Complete

27 August 2010
I'm having lots of fun! Another week has passed, and I'm loving Cosmo more and more! We learned lightening, and highlighting/lowlighting with foils and caps, and today we got to put what all we learned into practice. I got caramel highlights on top along with some peekaboo blonde highlights underneath, Laura did an awesome job on my hair, if I do so say myself! It came out really pretty!

Here's how my hair turned out :)

I had a super fun week, and it went by really fast, but I'm so glad its the weekend now. I'm SO ready to spend time with my hubby, cause it seems like I haven't seen him at all since he started his new job. He works late most nights, and has been out of town the past couple of days, but he's coming home tonight, thank goodness. I feel incomplete and lost without him!

Might do something exciting later.. like Wal-Mart at Midnite, and Steak n' Shake at 2am. Nothing more fun than that!

Phase 1, Week 1 Complete

23 August 2010
I'm so proud of myself. I'm not sure if I've ever finished anything completely in my life, sad to say, but I am proud of myself for making it through my first week of Cosmetology. I gotta say, it wasn't what I expected. It was SO much better. I love my teacher, and my classmates. Everyone is so nice and wonderful to be around.

I've learned alot already.. we covered hair structure, types of haircolor, and haircoloring techniques, including all over color on pre-colored and virgin hair. This week we're going over Communication skills and moving on to highlighting and lowlighting techniques. I'm looking forward to it. I'm really excited about my new career path!

First Day of Cosmo

17 August 2010
I was hoping to have been able to blog more by now, but my laptop hasn't been fixed yet.

So today was my first day of class at Kenneth Shuler, and it was a lot of fun. We learned about the hair and scalp, and related disorders and disesases. Then we went hands on shampooing our mannican heads. it wasnt as easy as I thought it was going to be, but with practice I know I'll get it.
