  • Hair removal for men is becoming more popular. Is hair removal something men should consider?

    Today, hair removal consists of much more than women waxing and plucking away unwanted hairs. Now, we have manscaping, or male grooming, which you'll find is a growing trend if you start esthetics school. From the chest to the back, men are giving hair removal a second thought.

    "Most men don't necessarily want it all removed, but increasingly they do want it thinned out," dermatologist Dr. David Goldberg told WebMD.

    Chances are, as you begin your career, you'll have both male and female clients interested in different hair removal treatments, though some men may still be skeptical of the practice.

    It's unacceptable for men (or anyone, really) to simply roll out of bed and head to work, a date or an outing with friends. Now, women, co-workers and even friends expect and appreciate men who are well groomed. And as friends, girlfriends and pop culture make more convincing arguments for this trend, an increasing number of men are trying out hair removal.

    Here are some compelling reasons for men to jump on the grooming bandwagon and consider hair removal:

    Look clean and put together
    No one would go too long without taking a shower (we hope!). Similarly, men can take advantage of hair removal to improve a polished look. Whether it's getting his eyebrows or unibrow waxed, his facial hair trimmed or his chest hair removed, manscaping can make a man feel and look more put together.

    It's cooler
    When it comes to temperature, it's understandable that being covered in hair from head to toe is bound to make men hot. For guys who are looking to cool off, hair removal will help them stay cool.

    It might boost confidence
    Like anyone, having excessive body hair might make a man feel self-conscious or lower his self-esteem. In this case, hair removal – whether it's taming eyebrows or waxing back and chest hair – can help a man feel more confident and improve his overall mood.


  • It's important to find the right shade of makeup for your skin tone to create a flawless look. Choosing the right makeup tones for your skin color

    Beauty training teaches how makeup can enhance your features, such as making your eyes pop or your lips stand out. However, it can be easy to choose the wrong shades of concealer, eye​ shadow, lipstick or blush. With so many options nowadays, it's easy to see why so many women have a hard time figuring out the right colors for themselves. So, use these tips to help you pick the right tones to match your skin color:

    How to pick a base
    To avoid buying a concealer that doesn't match your skin tone, keep in mind that skin has three undertones: cool, neutral and warm. Foundation and concealer shades are based off of these undertones, so here's how to tell which one you are:

    • Cool: Cosmopolitan magazine said that if the veins of your inner wrist appear blue or purple and your skin flushes and burns easily in the sun then you have cool undertones. Additionally, you're cool if silver jewelry looks better on your skin than gold and your skin looks more pink. If this sounds like you, then you should choose a foundation with a rosier base.
    • Neutral: You have a neutral undertone if your skin is neither pink nor yellow but falls in between with hints of both, the veins in your wrist are blue-green and both silver and gold jewelry look good on you.You can use either a pink- or yellow-based foundation, but be sure to try it on your skin first to make sure it blends naturally. 
    • Warm: Lastly, people with warm undertones have veins that appear green on their inner wrists, look better in gold jewelry and have skin that looks more yellow than pink. This means you should look for foundation with a yellow or olive base.

    Cosmopolitan also suggested a useful test to make sure you've chosen correctly – dip a cotton swab in the foundation and apply it to the center of your jawline on the side of your face. If the foundation appears invisible, then you've chosen the right one. If you can see lines or a distinction between colors, keep looking. Make sure that you are testing clean, moisturized skin and it's useful if there is good lighting.

    Accenting your face
    If you wear blush, you want to choose the right shade. For fair skin, you can opt for a champagne or light pink color. Ladies with medium skin should go for a rosy pink or peach, and for those with darker skin, a blush in a rose or deep orange shade will complement your complexion.

    It's always fun to play up your eyes with different shades of shadows, but make sure you're choosing something that works with your skin to give the right impression. According to The Beauty Bean, women with lighter skin can choose shadows in pinks, soft greens and browns while those with darker skin look great using richer tones like deep purple or metallic gold.


  • It's always important to have good communications skills in both professional and personal relationships. Communication is key: 4 tips to better express yourself

    Being able to express your thoughts and feelings is important in both your personal and professional relationships.

    Those who plan to attend massage therapy school will find that communication with clients is key in order to provide them with the best service. Additionally, you should be able to speak with co-workers, bosses, friends and family members clearly and articulately so they can understand your point of view if you're voicing concerns, providing an explanation or asking for clarification. You can use these 4 tips to help improve your communications skills:

    1. Be straightforward and precise
    You've heard that honesty is the best policy, and it's true. However, telling someone the truth is not always the easiest path. In any communication, it's always best to be upfront with the other person and be forthright in what you wish to discuss.

    "Be straightforward with people when the complaint is one that directly affects your relationship," Dr. Art Markman, professor of psychology at the University of Texas, told TIME magazine. "Beating around the bush runs the risk that they will not understand the message."

    Dr. Carl Alasko, a California-based psychotherapist and author of "Say This Not That: A Foolproof Guide to Effective Intrapersonal Communication," added that the best way to approach a conversation is to determine beforehand what you want to accomplish. From there, you should get right to the point when speaking. It might even be helpful to make some notes on talking points.

    2. Listen closely
    Part of being a good communicator is the ability to not only speak clearly but to listen as well. You might hear what someone says, but you need to actively listen to both their words and tone of voice in order to properly reply to their statement or question. Business Insider suggests that you don't interrupt someone but instead let them get their whole thought across before responding. This ensures that you will be able to contribute something thoughtful and pertinent to the conversation.

    3. Speak up and ask questions
    During conversation, you may not always understand what a person is trying to communicate. In these instances, it's best to ask constructive questions in order to better comprehend. It's perfectly acceptable to ask for clarification, especially if someone is assigning a task or asking you to do something. It's better to speak up if you don't understand than guess.

    4. Take some time to consider a response
    We live in a world where instant gratification is valued, so it may seem best to immediately respond to something someone has said to you. However, it's sometimes a good idea to take some time to think over what was said and formulate a respectful and thoughtful response.

    Dr. Alasko suggested to TIME magazine that you say, "Let me think about this for a few seconds," and learn to be comfortable in silence in order to avoid blurting out something you didn't mean or can't get across clearly.
