Hair and Makeup Ideas for this Valentine

Article by Nikki Brown Stylecaster

January felt like an entire year and February has finally arrived– a major feat if you ask us. There’s much to be considered during the shortest month of the year, but more often than not, Valentine’s Day hair and makeup ideas are something that have probably crossed your mind. If not, social media has already reminded you and now, you either could care less or are making plans to woo or be wooed by a bae.

If you’re part of the latter, that may include stepping out of the house and doing anything from a fancy dinner with your special someone to a night out with your other single friends. Regardless of where you’re headed, a face beat to the gawds or hair snatched into a camera-ready ‘do never hurt. To be honest, we’re all for getting dolled up any day of the week, including holidays.

This one is practically synonymous with red lipstick and well, not much else. So instead of sticking to the status quo, we’ve got some seriously stunning inspo that go beyond the basic. From micro-braids tied into a glittery bow to blended-out red eyeshadow, here are some hair and makeup combos we’re this close to trying ourselves.

Tie It With a Bow

If you’re leaving your makeup neutral like Zoe Kravitz and would rather put more effort–but not too much effort–into your hair, a blinged-out hair bow gets the job done in seconds.

Michael Kovac/Getty Images for Moet & Chandon.

Tall, Long and Sleek

When you want to keep hair out of your face, but still have something to run your fingers through, may we suggest a high ponytail with serious inches, a la Ciara?

Kevin Mazur/Getty Images for Fenty Beauty.

All Pink Everything

Leave it to Rihanna to remind us of the ever-elusive power of a pink lipstick (probably from Fenty Beauty) and tousled hair waves.

Desiree Navarro/Getty Images.

Stunning Shimmer

We can’t think of a better combo than foiled, silver eyeshadow surrounding a set of brilliant brown eyes. Combined with a glossy lip and few coats of mascara and you’re as good as gold.

Emma McIntyre/Getty Images for GLSEN.

Tuck ‘Em Away

We didn’t think Bettie Page bangs could get any cuter, until we saw this textured variation modeled by Yara Shahidi.

Michael Kovac/Getty Images for LACMA.

Blush Lids & Lips

Once you can get over this perfect blunt bob, get into the rosy eyeshadow and matching lipstick against Kiki Layne’s gorgeous brown skin.

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for Glamour.

Understated Under-Liner

Effortless may just be a pipe dream, but you’ll get pretty close if you throw your hair into some pigtails like Janelle Monae and opt for under-liner, which can be as attention-grabbing as a face full of makeup.

David M. Benett/Dave Benett/WireImage.

Ramp Up With Red

Red lipstick is classic, but why not take it to new heights with matching red eyeshadow and a bit of shimmer just because? Margot Robbie totally gets it.

Daniel Zuchnik/FilmMagic.

Pretty in Peach

Vanessa Hudgens knows the power of Pantone’s color of the year. So much so, that she delivered top-notch beauty goals in head-to-toe coral.

Frazer Harrison/Getty Images.

Classic Updo

A sophisticated updo like Danai Gurira’s will never not look beautiful.

Steve Granitz/WireImage.

Blend It Out

If you’re not into building color on top of color, blend it out instead and pair with a glossy lip like Lili Reinhart.

Kevin Mazur/Getty Images for The Critics’ Choice Awards.

Bejeweled Tresses

How could you not be inspired to dress up like a bonafide queen after seeing Indya Moore in a bordeaux lip and updo accessorized with gold rings?

Steve Granitz/WireImage.

“Effortless” Ponytail

There’s a wide spectrum of effortless, I-woke-up-like-this ponytails out there, but one of our faves is the one that houses lived-in beach waves, like this one on Olivia Munn.

Presley Ann/Getty Images.

Floral Bun

Though we’re always enamored with Lady Gaga’s makeup, there’s no denying the can’t-look-away appeal of this low bun, which resembles the type of flowers you’d get in a Valentine’s Day bouquet.

George Pimentel/WireImage.

Match Your Fashion

When all else fails and your creative muscles need rest, match your outfit to your makeup like Emmy Rossum.

Daniele Venturelli/WireImage.

Messy Curls

The more curls, the better…at least according to us and Amber Heard.

Morgan Lieberman/FilmMagic.

Old Hollywood Glamour

Kristen Cavallari’s shoulder-length, uniform waves are taking us back in time.

Jerritt Clark/Getty Images.

The Classic Half-Up, Half-Down

Kelly Rowland’s light pink lip and half-up, half-down do is a look we’d wear every single day of the year.

10 Ways to Boost your Hair Extensions Business by Diane Shawe

Article by Diane Shawe Author: Extracts from Getting Started in the Hair Extensions Business

Sometimes you find things are going great and then the big slump takes a hold. How can you evaluate what you have done right and where you are going wrong?

Doing a SWOT analysis will give you a true picture of how your hair extension business could or should be running. It is essential to work out why some things are working in your business and why some are

SWOT stands for ‘strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats’. It is a well-known term in business and marketing. Performing a SWOT analysis is a very important part of running the business. It must be taken seriously

It is your own audit of your business no matter the size of it and should be done on a regular basis, at least annually. It’s not very complicated but could help keep you ahead of your competitors.

You may discover problems that you had no idea even existed. These can be addressed before they get out of hand. It will also highlight many assets, which could be utilised better, even opportunities, which could be taken advantage of.

The results of your SWOT analysis will be the basis for your marketing plans and decisions.

‘What they don’t tell you about getting started in the hair extension business’ summary from page 20 – 35 author Shawe D 2007

1) Form business alliances

Join up with other businesses to help each other build a bigger clientele.

Form an alliance with another business that has the same type of clientele as yours, for instance a business which involves beauty, nails, tanning, or fashion.

You can take this alliance as far as you like. You could set up shop together, or just refer clients to each other. You could do some advertising together and share the cost. Another idea is to hand out gift vouchers for each other. Each gift voucher could be for a free service.

It’s best if you both cater to clients who are at the same end of the market.

There’s not much point in marketing to people who simply can’t afford to come to your hair extension studio or pay for your services.
2. Choosing a Business

Choose a business where the people have the same business ethics as yours and a good database of clients.

3) Network

Throw the occasional cocktail party and invite the surrounding business owners, managers and employees of your choice. If you can build relationships with these people you may gain them as clients. Remember most men have girlfriends or wives and most women have other lady friends also.

They might also refer some of their customers and friends to you. Do this especially with the staff of beauty and fashion shops in your area. They are ideal people to get referrals from.
4) Get Quality Training

There are over 36 different hair extension techniques in the market place. If you really want to plan to be a success in this market, then you have to choose to become totally proficient in several techniques. There are many types of clients out there with varying hair problems, plan to be of service to you target market. Restricting yourself is restricting your potential income.

5) Be Classy (even if your working from home)

It’s best to set your hair extension studio up so that the right impact is made right from the moment the clients make an entrance or you make an entrance. Remember that the more professional the hair extension studio looks, the more you will be able to charge, as you will attract a more up market clientele. I always advise that the overall look must not out way the warmth and welcome of the studio. Clients like to feel relaxed with the staff and environment, not as if they are on show.
6) Flowers at reception or at your home always add a touch of class.

So does a smiling face, which helps to make each client’s, visit a welcoming visit right from the start. You can make the waiting area more impressive by including a great retail area, some hair extension brochures, and a book containing before and after photos. Provide some new, interesting magazines and hair books. Toss the old or torn ones out.
7) Always protect the clients clothing.

There should be a cupboard or rack for coats, or like some hair dressers have, a small dressing room for clients, who are given a gown to wear. This is a great idea as it removes the problem of high collars being in the way and clothes being ruined.

8) Get rid of shabby items.

Make sure there is a place for everything and enough storage space, so that the hair extension studio can be kept tidy. Get rid of the old wraps, used or shabby towels, and worn brushes. Never have dirty combs or tongs lying around. All of these things make a bad impression on clients.
9) No Carrier bags or damaged cases.

If you are mobile don’t turn up with carrier bags or a damaged beauty case. Make sure you are presentable and that your hair looks emaculate.
10) Don’t be afraid to change with the times.

If your hair extension studio starts to look outdated give it a facelift. Invest in the latest equipment. Make sure that the chairs not only look good, but also feel comfortable. If you are mobile make sure your equipment is up to date in line with your techniques.

Undercutting your Hair Extensions Competition


Extracted from Getting Started in the Hair Extension Business by Diane Shawe

If your hair extension studio is a real under-cutter, care will have to be taken to keep costs as low as realistic as possible.

Don’t be shy when it comes to taking money for your services. Charge for the value of the benefits that you offer.

You must put a value on your services; look at your type of clientele, hair extension location, experience of employees, your clients’ needs and, the prices of the competition.

Price is sometimes seen as a sign of quality and value. Price can attract like-minded customers. They think that because your prices are high, the technician in your hair extension studio must be good. If your prices are high, it is important to promote to the high paying customers, the value of your service.

There are a lot of competitors, so low prices alone, might not be enough to keep the low paying customers coming back. Clients who look for bargains are not only looking for low prices, but they want to get great results too.

You must determine how much value you can offer. To be of value to clients, you must know what the clients’ needs are. Understand what benefits they wish to receive, what pain they want to relieve.

Order you copy today from Amazon or Google Play

The benefits they want might be a quick service with no waiting, or it could be that they want an expert doing their hair. They might prefer certain products used on their hair, or to know that they can be squeezed in at short notice occasionally.

Their pain might be that they begrudge spending time on their hair, or that they loathe technicians who don’t listen to them. It might be that they just haven’t found the right retail products to use at home.

Profit margins will be low, so a lot of clients will have to go through the hair extension studio, just for you to be able to pay the overheads. It will most likely mean offering fewer services and probably, rushing clients through. Even the employees will have to be paid a low salary.

In some cases, this could mean that the employees are much less experienced than you may like. You really need to decide on what sort of employees you want in your hair extension studio. You will find that the best technicians won’t want to work in a cheap hair extensions studio. Not only would it hurt their reputations, but they wouldn’t work for a low salary.

Your clientele will most likely be bargain hunters who probably won’t spend on retail products either.

Charge by experience
If your employees have exceptional skills or experience, you can charge more. If you promote these benefits well, you’ll find that clients don’t mind paying extra. A lot of clients don’t mind paying for the name, or the prestige.

Some hair extension studios charge by the experience of the hair technician performing the service. As employees reach certain levels of experience, they charge more. This seems to work very well for them.

The Effects of Grade Inflation on Education

So what is Grade Inflation and what are the effects?

Article by Diane Shawe Author extracts from ‘Is Adult Education Broken’

Grade inflation is the tendency to award progressively higher academic grades for work that would have received lower grades in the past.

  • Grade inflation makes it more difficult to identify the best students, as more students are awarded the highest available grade.
  • Grade inflation is not uniform between schools. This places students in more stringently graded schools and departments at an unfair disadvantage.
  • Grade inflation is not uniform among disciplines.
  • Grade inflation makes it more difficult to compare students who took their exams at different times.

The effects of Compliance Professionals

The rise of the campus compliance professional as expert utilising the perfects means of
gaining media influence with their established position. Though the means of gaining influence
are common, their aims vary from political, economic, to personal. Thus the label of
compliance professional applies to diverse groups of people, including propagandists,
marketers, pollsters, salespeople and political advocates. It’s interesting to note that education is not really targeted

The effects of Grade Point Averages (GPA)

According to a study published in 2014, a one-point increase in high school GPA translated to
an 11.85-percent increase in annual earnings for men and a 13.77 percent annual earnings
increase for women. However, the higher percentage increase was not found to be enough
for women to catch up to men: women with a 4.0 high school GPA still made less, on average,
than men with a 2.5 GPA. We are now seeing evidence of this in unequal gender pay for the same job

College and post-college students often wonder how much weight their GPA carries in future
employment. The employer, company and industry play the largest factor in answering this question.

According to Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., senior vice president of human resources for IAC/Interactive Corp, a company with over 33,000 employees, an applicant’s GPA is the single best indicator of future success in job employment. According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers, since 2001 there has been an increase in employers looking at and making hiring decisions based on, a candidate’s GPA.

In addition, Job Outlook 2005 survey reported that 70 percent of employers looked at an applicant’s GPA, increasing to 75 percent in 2010. Those looking at and weighing in college GPA reported that their cut off was a GPA of 3.0 or lower (Morsch 2 CL 2007-2010)

GPA is not the only factor that determines future employment. Many employers look for other
pertinent characters such as leadership, teamwork, flexibility and attitude. They may also look at the reputation of the college attended and other work related experiences such as
internships. In a 2010 student survey for recruiters, 45 percent of the students who had
completed an internship had already received a job offer. Many of these jobs were within the
company that they interned for.

Buy a copy today

Although GPA seems to be important in the hiring process, other variables may contribute to
the likelihood of getting hired. If a student’s GPA is below a 3.0 or what the employer is looking for, it is suggested to calculate your GPA for only the classes within your major for your resume.

The effects of Consumer Confusion

Confusion occurs when a consumer fails to correctly understand or interpret products and
services. (Turnbell 2002 -2003). This, in turn, leads to them making imperfect purchasing
decisions. This concept is important to marketeers because consumer confusion may result in reduced sales, reduced satisfaction with products and difficulty communicating effectively with the consumer. It is a widely studied and broad subject which is a part of Consumer behaviour and Decision making.

The effects of Choice overload, financial pressures

Choice overload (sometimes called over choice in the context of confusion) occurs when the
set of purchasing options becomes overwhelmingly large for a consumer. A good example is a wine in the UK where supermarkets may present over 1000 different products leaving the consumer with a difficult choice process. Whilst large assortments do have some positive
aspects (principally novelty and stimulation and optimal solutions) any assortment greater
than around 12-14 products leads to confusion and specifically transferring the ownership of
quality assurance to the consumer.

What this means in practice is reduced levels of satisfaction with purchases from large assortments as a consumer may be left with doubt that they have succeeded in finding the “best” product. Choice overload is growing with every large database of online free courses such as Moodle, University offering large choices of taster courses which can often be misinterpreted as real courses.

Taking it all in

By no stretch of the imagination have I scratched the surface of all the different methods of
reviewing standards, methodologies, global rankings and other factors that suggest the
system(s) is failing to adequately prepare students and adults who are still in our system and will be for another 30 years to adjust to rapidly changing technology.

How can educators,prepare individuals for entrance into the global marketplace?

This is done by reviewing potential hindrances and shortcomings, of which I am going to list in my opinion the most relevant ones so that educators around the world can better explore and devote their best and brightest to finding solutions to shape educational strategies with a proactive approach designed to improve overall outcomes for success.

Before I begin I quote a reference from Charles Darwin

“It is not the strongest or the most intelligent who will survive but those who can best
manage change.”

Throughout the ages, every human society has experienced challenges adjusting to population
growth, maintaining structural order and creating channels for future generations. How well a society prepares the next generation for survival is imperative for the society as a whole but we have stalled in this process because we seem to be accumulating a pool of adults (who were once the next generation) who appear to be helpless in this new found world of information and technology -The intangible and more important how to work with the tangible.

One critical element of preparation in the 21st century is the ability to engage all ages and
cultures beyond communal borders. At the centre of this struggle for growth and prosperity is education.

I will now explore some of the current educational strategies which are failing to prepare the current adult generation sufficiently enough to enter the global workforce and sustain their family, community and contribute to their countries economic prosperity.

How to avoid being Ripped of by Mobile Hair Extension Technicians.

Tina is classed as a vunerable person. After suffering many health issues including cancer, Tina wanted to attend a forthcoming wedding looking lovely and having hair like she use too.

She made contact with a mobile person who had been advertising for over 4 years on gumtree. (Now there is nothing wrong with gumtree it offer an effective service) She explained her problem and what she wanted. The technician said she could provide the service, quoted her several hundreds of pounds and said she would personally deliver and fit the bespoke wig the following week after requesting a £200 deposit.

The following week she turned up on the doorstep of her now client, put the wig on her head, added some glue collected several hundreds of pounds by bank transfer and requested she receive another £10 cash for a taxi to the train station.

The following week this clients head was on fire, she had an allergy reaction to the glue and nylon base and the wig kept falling off her head.

The technician failed to do a pre consultation, measure her head, find out about any allergies or even do a pre fitting.

So here are the things you should look out for prior to doing business with a mobile hair and beauty self employed person

A) Do they have insurance

Whether you are working from home or a commercial site you can get businesses insurance. Normally insurance companies want evidence of your qualifications and experience.

B) Do they have a certificate of Business registration

All businesses should register with their local authority who will do a site visit to see if you comply with health and safety. They seems thou a certificate of registration once thou comply.

C) Do they have a website or facebook page

Often they will display previous clients photos or reviews. Contact details and trading address.

D) Do they have references or reviews

Facebook, google or blogs will give you a window into what clients think of their services.

E) Do they have a letterhead or invoice
