  • The 2015 Golden Globes featured many well-dressed stars. 5 best-dressed celebs at the 2015 Golden Globes

    If you didn't catch the 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards, there are a few things you should know: Amy Poehler and Tina Fey were hilarious in their third and final year of hosting, unapologetically joking about everything and everyone. The film "Boyhood" took home the biggest win of the night for best drama, and George Clooney was charming and thought-provoking during his acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award; And there were an inordinate amount of beautifully dressed celebrities. Though everyone brought their fashion A-game, take a look at the five best-dressed stars who really nailed it:

    1. Lupita Nyong'o
    Nyong'o's bright red caped Ralph Lauren gown completely stole the show at last year's Golden Globes, making her a much-anticipated star on this year's red carpet. And Nyong'o's 2015 Golden Globes dress didn't disappoint. Her custom Giambattista Valli gown featured a purple floral applique on the bodice and a multicolored skirt that faded to white as it reached the floor, and her rosy lipstick, dewy cheeks and bright eye makeup brought the look together beautifully.

    2. Quvenzhané Wallis
    The 11-year-old "Annie" star showed up in an Armani Junior dress that was at once beautiful, adorable and age-appropriate. Her floor-length gown featured a white bodice beaded with pearls and a flowing lilac skirt with a cute bow at the waist. But it wasn't the dress that turned heads – Wallis' sideswept curls and pretty jewelry complemented the dress perfectly, and her huge grin really stole the show.

    3. Matt Bomer
    ​The winner of best supporting actor for his role in "A Normal Heart" looked amazing on the red carpet and on stage during his poignant acceptance speech. Bomer wore a Ralph Lauren Black Label tux and slicked-back hair, looking dapper in the blue ensemble that made him stand out from the crowd. 

    4. Kate Hudson
    Plunging necklines have trended on red carpets all last year, and this year's Golden Globes had a few deep necklines of note as well. Stars wearing the trend included Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Chastain and Kate Hudson, whose white Versace dress also featured bejeweled skin-showing cutouts and a glamorous train. The actress' natural makeup and swept-back hair were understated and beautiful, leaving the gown front and center.

    5. Emma Stone
    Metallic was a big hit on the red carpet this year, with stars like Reese Witherspoon, Dakota Johnson and Julianne Moore all wearing gowns with a lot of sparkle. Stone's sparkling bodice was just one amazing part of the stylish Lanvin jumpsuit she wore, which also featured a large bow on the back trailing a floor-length sash. Her trademark red waves were styled casually, and her matte pink lipstick and cat-eye liner amped up the glamorous look. 

    If you love seeing the top style and beauty trends on the red carpet, you may want to consider enrolling in cosmetology training, where you'll learn professional hair and makeup techniques, along with everything else you need to know to be a licensed cosmetologist.

  • Take a look at these iconic hairstyles men love to emulate. Pop culture hairstyles for men

    If you're interested in a career as a barber, barbering school will teach you all you need to know about the profession. You'll learn everything from hairstyling to shaving to professional health and safety practices. You'll also need to know, though, about some of the most popular hairstyles in pop culture that your clients will request during their appointments. From short to long and everything in between, check out these most iconic pop culture hairstyles men repeatedly want to emulate:

    George Clooney
    George Clooney is known for being dapper and suave, and his most popular hairstyle complements that personality perfectly. Men often ask for Clooney's side-part style with a little bit of spiked boyish volume in the front. Side parts in general are very popular, and they can be worn neat and slicked back or a little untidy with some loose strands around the forehead (think Ryan Gosling).

    The Mad Men
    Since the AMC show first aired in 2007, men have been caught up in Don Draper's retro style, from his debonair suits to his charming personality. But it's his hair that many men really want to imitate. Unlike Clooney's more youthful-looking side-parted style, Draper's deep side part is worn short and perfectly coifed with product slicking it back away from the face. The put-together look makes for an almost intimidating style that many modern businessmen love.

    James Dean
    James Dean's hairstyle is perhaps one of the most iconic on the list and has been popular with men everywhere for several decades. The "Rebel Without a Cause" popularized the quiff, where the hair at the front of the head is full, voluminous and styled into a mini-pompadour, while the rest of the hair is trimmed and shorter. Dean wore the style slightly mussy and edgy, and his look is still popular with men today. Look to Bruno Mars and Adam Levine to see how modern men are wearing the style.

    David Beckham
    Somewhat reminiscent of James Dean's quiff is David Beckham's modern mohawk style. The edgy look is long and spiky on top with shorter sides and just enough messiness to keep it up to date. Men are wearing the style in several different ways, but whether paired with super-trimmed sides or a longer head of hair, it still looks great.

    High and Tight
    The militaristic high and tight, or crew cut is another that's been around for decades. The style is characterized by trimmed hair on the top of the head which tapers to a shorter buzz cut along the sides and near the neck. This tapered hairstyle is one of the most requested at barber shops and has been for years. Celebrities like Channing Tatum, Zac Efron and Matt Damon have been known to put their own spin on this iconic style.

    Brad Pitt
    It's not Brad Pitt's short and tidy golden-boy style that lands him on the list of iconic cuts. It's the shaggy shoulder-length cut he's been wearing on and off for years, which is almost reminiscent of Kurt Cobain's medium-length locks. Shaggy, grown-out hairstyles have always been popular and are becoming even moreso lately. Modern men with grown-out cuts have even been wearing their hair in what's been termed a man bun for the last couple of years.

    If you’re passionate about hair, makeup, skin care and anything else in the realm of beauty, a cosmetology career may be perfect for you. Practicing cosmetologists perform beauty services for a living, but they’re also huge trendsetters in the world of hair and makeup, and they work hard daily to make their clients look and feel great. If you aren’t sure exactly how to become a cosmetologist, take a look at this guide that can help you get started:


    How do I become a cosmetologist?
    The first step to becoming a beauty professional is to begin researching cosmetology schools. Depending on where you live and the school you choose, you will likely need a high school diploma or GED, and there is generally an age minimum for attending. Some cosmetology schools offer guidance to help you earn your high school diploma or GED, so if you need to do that, be sure to ask about those programs as you’re researching your options. The cosmetology training will prepare you to take and pass a state board exam. Once you’ve graduated and passed the licensing exam, you’ll be ready to start practicing as a cosmetologist!


    What do I learn in a cosmetology program?
    Cosmetology programs cover a lot of ground, and you’ll take part in both conceptual learning and practical hands-on training. You’ll be taught about hair, skin and nail care, but the right program will also prepare you for the business and professional aspects of interviewing for and having a cosmetology job, and even managing a salon.


    Hair care covers learning how to cut and style all different types of hair, permanent waving and chemical straightening processes and professional coloring and bleaching techniques. You’ll also master various manicuring and pedicuring techniques, performing different types of facials, and eyebrow and makeup practices. The education will also cover the anatomical and physiological reasons behind the techniques you’re learning, best safety and sanitation practices, and the state’s laws and regulations you’ll need to follow as a cosmetologist.


    Choosing a career path
    Licensed beauticians find careers in various fields of the beauty industry. Graduates of cosmetology training programs have found careers as salon and spa owners, stylists and makeup artists for film, TV and magazines, product sales representatives and practicing hair stylists and coloring specialists. Many cosmetologists are able to work for themselves and create their own schedules.


    Job outlook 
    There are expected to be 13 percent more jobs in cosmetology, barbering and hairdressing in 2022 than there were in 2012, which means the field is growing – and fast!


    If this sounds like the right career path for you, don’t hesitate to find a great cosmetology program that will get you started!
