We all need a little help looking our best now and then, and National Beauticians Day celebrates those cosmetological experts who can help hide our flaws and bring out the absolute best of our beauty. There are multiple disciplines within the realm of cosmetology, including such areas as skin care, manicures, electrology, hair care, and cosmetic application. When it’s a special day for you, it’s always good to remember that without these, we could be locked in a perpetual bad hair day. The world of fashion and style is in constant flux, evolving with the changing of the seasons, and these wonderful navigators of the beauty world will see you through.
Cosmetics is one of the foundations of the beauticians art, with the knowledge of how colors, skin tones, and hair color all come together to create the unique pallete that is your skin. Cosmetics have to be carefully selected to enhance your natural features, with considerations needing to be taken for dry skin, oily skin, and the always tricky combination skin. While most people think merely of the colorants that are standard ‘make-up’, cosmetics actually include those products used for treating the various issues tied into the nature of your skin.
Skin care is done through a variety of methods, and National Beauticians Day is a great time to check in with your cosmetologist to help you adjust for your new look. There are several processes involved in properly caring with your skin, including regular cleansings, masks (such as clay-based, peel masks, sheet masks, and others). Exfoliation helps to get rid of dead skin to help the fresh new skin underneath truly shine, or to even out rough spots on your skin. Combining these habits with Toning, moisturizing, and products to protect your skin from skin and wind damage.
But what is perfect skin without the glowing, healthy hair to back it up? Just like your skin, hair has different characteristics, some is naturally curly, or long and straight, some is fine, and others thick, and just like face, hair can suffer from being oily or dry. There’s so much that can be done with hair, with coloring being one of the most popular options, serving to perfectly compliment your natural coloration. There are hundreds of different hair styles, each one serving to compliment your face in a different way. National Beauticians Day is a great opportunity to consult them on what styles would look best on you.
Another great way to celebrate is to get together with your friends, men and women alike, and head on down to your local nail salon or spa for a relaxing mani-pedi. Men rarely take an opportunity for this level of pampering, and that’s a terrible shame. Convince your friends to come on down with you, and you can guarantee they’ll keep coming back for more. For bonus points, try to convince them to get their nails not just shaped, but to get at least a clear-coat, if not a full colored coat!
National Beauticians Day can also be an opportunity for you to take the plunge and get rid of those unsightly and bothersome areas of body hair. Electrology is another element of the beautician’s art, allowing you to take control of your appearance by permanently removing unwanted hair in troublesome areas. Never worry about shaving your armpits, or having an unsightly bikini lines at the beach or pool. With the application of electrolisis, you’ll be free from these concerns forever! So pop in to see your Beautician, and bring them cards or flowers, or even treat them to a day at the spa with a gift certificate!
