Everyone loves a good makeover. Whether it’s found in a classic feel-good movie, the subject of a smash hit reality show or in their friend’s living room. People are drawn to the transformation. And it makes sense, doesn’t it? It’s common knowledge that a key component to feeling good as a whole is taking pride in your appearance. In fact, studies show that your productivity is deeply affected by how put-together you feel. With working at home becoming more common, savvy businesses encourage remote and at-home employees to prepare for the day by investing in personal appearance. For many that routine incorporates a makeup portion. Four out of five women in the U.S. wear makeup daily and an increased focus on skincare and makeup for everyone is on the rise globally.
A component of esthetic and cosmetology education is, of course, makeup application. Many of Academy of Hair Design’s students have truly become artists of the craft. Many students come in to Academy with a strong passion and simply lack the technique. But art without passion is only technique. Learning is a relay race, educators can’t get you all the way to the finish line. You must take the personal accountability to push yourself to the next level.
At Academy of Hair Design, we know we are at our best when we are supporting those students who have the moxie and winning energy to take their career into their own hands. And they do this in many ways. We see students thrive when they focus on perfecting their skills, invest in their community, and cultivate a business mentality by recruiting clients to come be part of their success.
Our educators and staff work hard to make Academy a safe place for you to step outside of your comfort zone so that you can truly shine. Let your passion drive you into your best future through bettering yourself. You won’t be alone, especially while surrounded by other students with like-minded ambitions.
And when in doubt, find comfort in the fact that we know it can be done because we have seen time and time again. Even before graduation, we watch our talented student’s careers blossom. One such example is current cosmetology student, Hailey Boots. At just 18, this Austin resident is wowing the makeup world. Her strong passion for makeup shines throughout her hard work and persistent dedication. So much so that she was hand-picked to take part in the RAW Austin Ovation show.
You can check out her Instagram, @haileybootsbeauty, to see how she seamlessly blends seasonal special effects makeup and her excellent beauty application. This is what it means to be a professional. Taking a passion, adding technique and crafting a career.
