5 Characteristic Traits That Lead To Salon Success

A successful career in Cosmetology is only half of the battle when it comes to achieving and maintaining salon success.  TSPA Appleton’s beauty school program is designed to train students for much more than passing the state boards. We develop the entire salon professional with great technical ability, business & marketing training, and the guest handling skills that are in high demand by top salons and spas. However, while all those traits are super important let’s dive into 5 Character Traits that can lead salon professionals to great success.

  1. Determination– Determination is the force or drive one has when they want to achieve their goals and dreams. With long hours, rotating schedule, competitive market, product sales, building and maintaining a steady clientele, cosmetology is not for the faint of heart. It’s extremely important to make sure that focus and determination are key elements in helping you achieve your short term goals and eventually long term goals.
  2. Listening– Being a successful hairstylist means listening to your clients in more ways than one. Active listening is extremely important but so is being aware of your client’s body language. Noticing visual cues can help you know what your clients’ needs and expectations are.
  3. Creativity– Cosmetology is a creative field where clients are able to rely on their stylist’s options to help them make important decisions when it comes to their looks. Being someone who is creative you are able to find beauty in almost everything and in turn, this allows you to create beauty every single day by working with new innovative techniques.
  4. Confidence– A key ingredient in having your own happiness and success depends largely on how confident you are. Self-confidence is all about believing that you have the power within yourself to be and do whatever you set your mind too. As you enter the beauty industry, remember that a successful beauty artist is a journey, not a sprint. All you need is experience and willingness to grow. “The key to your own success and happiness lies within.” – Jon Gonzales
  5. Passion– As a beauty artist, hair and body becomes your canvas. Your love for creating beautiful work comes from the tools that are taught and combined with numerous influences that create a masterpiece. You cannot put a price on the joy that one feels after you create a lasting change that helps them feel beautiful inside and out. Without passion, there is no purpose and no life in the masterpiece that was created.

Halloween Makeup Spooktacular

Your pumpkins have been picked and carved, your house has been decorated with fake spider webs and spiders, but have you chosen what you will be for Halloween? Halloween is the time of year where you can be anything you want to be. If you are looking for some fun Halloween-esque inspiration, look no further TSPA Appleton’s very talented student artist, Alyssa,  will show us some easy to recreate but fun looks to make this years Halloween Costume come to life.

Here are two Halloween makeup looks you can create using your favorite makeup products.

 

1. Spider

Fix your eyes upon this stellar 3D Halloween spider makeup look! This Pinterest inspired look was created by Alyssa who achieved made the spider come to life by creating some detailed shadowing, an expertly applied concealer and eyelid primer to insure that these spider legs popped!

What you’ll need:

  • Light Foundation (or foundation that makes your skin tone)
  • Either Orange or Purple Eye Shadow
  • Black Eyeliner
  • White Face Paint
  • Black Face Paint
  • Black Eye Shadow

Alyssa recommends that you use eyelid primer to insure that your eye shadows will be as pigmented as possible (note: dont set with anything, you want this look to be as tacky as possible.) She used James Charles Morphy palette as the eyelid color and used face paint which could be substantiated for eyeliner. She then used eye shadow to create the shadows to make spider leg illusions.

2. The Stitched Face Doll

Here we’ve got the Stitched Face Doll,  this intricate look is for those of you who are wanting something a little less creepy but something that is easy to throw together last min.

What you’ll need:

  • Light Foundation (or foundation that matches your skin tone)
  • Brown Eyeliner
  • Black Eyeliner
  • White Face Paint
  • Medium Shade Eye Shadow  (brown)
  • Black Eye Shadow

 

To achieve the Stitched Doll Face look Alyssa suggests first applying primer and foundation that matches your particular skin tone. Once your foundation has been evenly applied you can start drawing on the lines of where the splits would be on the face. To draw these most effectively use a eyebrow pencil and fill in using eyeliner or the eyebrow pencil. Use that same eyebrow pencil to draw the stitches over the lines. Shade each side of the line to make it look 3D. Fill in the stitches using white face paint and then once dried go went back over where the holes would go on the and used a black eyes shadow. To finish this look out, go in with dark brown eye shadow and underline the stitches to make the looked raised. Then go back through and added highlight to the stitches to make them stand out.

 

Meet The Artist:

“Art has always been a passion of mine. Ever since I was a little girl I told myself I was going to be an artist. As I got older, I was not sure what I wanted to do with my talents, I had tossed around a few ideas that never really went anywhere. It wasn’t until I came to TSPA that I found my true calling. Attending TSPA has shown me I am at the right school and on the right path to success. Whether its on a canvas, skin, or hair I loving being creative. My goal after I graduate is to move to the west coast and work for movies as a special effects make up artist. I would love to own my own salon and have my artwork displayed throughout  the place to showcase my love for art. Being a cosmetology student has taught me so many things  beyond just hair techniques and has pushed me to strive for the best version of myself. ” -Alyssa B
