  • It's important for men to get manicures to complete their  overall appearance. Why should men get manicures?

    As a man, you understand the importance of grooming and wellness. Part of your barber training includes the necessity of keeping facial hair tidy, and as a professional chances are that you always aim to dress well and present yourself in an appealing manner.

    When you look in the mirror, you might see a good-looking man from head to toe, but when is the last time you stopped to consider your hands? As a barber, you use your hands everyday as a part of your work, but have you ever taken a moment to think about their appearance? Maybe you bite your nails, have dry skin or damaged cuticles – whatever the case may be, it could be time for a manicure.

    You might be thinking to yourself, "But wait, aren't manicures for women" The answer is no, and while this practice is typically more female-dominated, men absolutely can, and should, get manicures as well.

    Barbers need to make a good hand impression
    Since you're working with your hands all day long, they are part of your professional appearance. You might be dressed well and have good hair, but a client may be turned off at unsightly fingers.

    As Details magazine pointed out, neat and clean nails and hands add to an overall sophisticated and put-together look, so it's important to keep up appearances because rough cuticles and nails can make for a poor first impression.

    Getting a male manicure
    The source noted that there are certain things to ask a manicurist when it comes to the male manicure. Men should have their cuticles trimmed and their nails cut and buffed, but they should opt out of having clear nail polish applied because it looks artificial.

    Following the manicure, you should keep up a healthy nail routine by filing and buffing nails at home between appointments, especially if you have a hangnail. It's much better to file that down than bite it off, which could lead to an infection. It's also a good idea to soak your hands in warm soapy water and apply hand lotion at night to keep the skin soft and supple.

    Not only will your hands and fingers look much cleaner and more polished, but your clients are sure to take notice of your upkeep and appreciate the total package during their barber appointment.


  • A man cave should feel like you and reflect your personality. 3 suggestions for the perfect man cave

    Time spent at home unwinding after a long day of barber training should be done somewhere you can enjoy. So, maybe it's time to get to work on the perfect man cave.

    Regardless of if you live alone or with others, having a a place you can make your own is important. This provides you with the space to display your prized model car or baseball card collections, set up that impressively large big-screen TV, opt for ruggedly male decor. A man cave is the perfect spot for relaxing with chilled beverage after a long day or on the weekends while watching the big game.

    If you're planning a man cave, here are some suggestions for creating the ultimate spot that's sure to be the envy of all your friends:

    1. Decide on the space: Depending on what sort of residence you live in, a spare bedroom, basement, garage or even a corner of the living room can be transformed into your man cave. The Man Cave Blog said that some of the top trends for 2014 include making a bathroom, outdoor kitchen or home office a male-centric space, so don't be afraid to think outside of the box.

    2. Consider a theme: What are your hobbies? Interests? These could make awesome themes or focal points in your man cave. Have you started brewing your own beer or are you a fan of vintage sports memorabilia? Man caves are an ideal place to put these on display or perfect your finest ale. This is your dedicated space so make it as personal as you wish. After all, this is the spot where you should be totally comfortable and at ease!

    3. Decorate: It won't be a very exciting man cave if you don't decorate the space. Take some time to pick out quality furniture - haven't you been drooling over a leather recliner lately? You should also consider wall color and lighting. Darker, richer colors are often associated with a more masculine feel, but as this is your own personal space, feel free to go as dark or as bright as you'd like. Keep in mind that you want the space to be cohesive and have a positive flow. You can also add extras such as bar, fridge, dart board, pool table or vintage video game consoles. The man cave should be a reflection of your personality.


  • There are many perks for networking via social media. What are the benefits of networking on social media?

    Like most people, there's a good chance that you're a member of at least one (if not several) social media sites. It seems like we're always hearing phrases such as, "Did you see my Facebook post?" or "I got the recipe from Pinterest."

    The benefits of using social media are endless - from connecting with old friends to staying on top of the latest news. Another great perk of the Web is that it's becoming an increasingly useful tool for networking. As you prepare for your cosmetology career, you'll want to reach out to others in your field, from novices like yourself to seasoned experts, for advice, possible job opportunities and general tips on improving your skills.

    Networking benefits

    There are a number of benefits to networking online, including:

    Getting your name out there
    The more you connect and develop relationships via social networking, the more likely someone is to think of you should a job opening come up. It's also a great way to bounce ideas off of others in the industry who may have more experience in cosmetology than you do.

    Staying in the loop
    No matter what field you work in, it's always important to stay on top of the latest tips and trends. As you work toward becoming a cosmetology professional, social media can help you keep up to date.

    Starting conversations
    Social media allows you to start or join in on conversations. Not only should you post on these sites, but try to start a dialogue by responding to others. This will help you develop solid contacts, which can potentially open doors for you in the future.

    Tips for social media networking

    LinkedIn is a professional social media site, so this is a great place to reach out to fellow cosmetology students, research possible places of employment and connect to experts in your field. Facebook and Twitter are both great for following big industry names to stay in the know when it comes to what's trending and what's out for the season.

    Princeton University's career services shared some suggestions for online networking:

    • Build a network: Follow people who can be valuable resources including students, teachers, business owners and friends.
    • Recognize thought leaders: Spend time reading and analyzing topics and trends. Follow the authors of these ideas and connect with them.
    • Share your own ideas: Whether it's something you create yourself or something you've found online, develop a presence on social media.
