1 Choice That Will Change Your Life Forever

1 Choice That Will Change Your Life Forever

On the week of Christmas, I decided to take the leap before the big day and apply for Cosmetology school.

Aside from having a passion for hair, makeup, and fashion, there are other things I know I will love in the cosmetology world.

Cosmetology is a hot job market right now, and it will take more than a thousand years for it to cool off. People will always have a need to look good & feel good, therefore a cosmetologist will always be needed.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics have projected that overall employment in the field of cosmetology will increase by 10% during 2014-2024, which is faster than the average of all other occupations.

The demand comes from the ever increasing population; so I know I will have job security & stability after graduation!

Nothing is more attractive to me than a profession that allows me to be free, creative and have fun! Cosmetology allows that and so much more! Once you receive your license and whether you be a barber, esthetician, hairstylist or any other, you get to make your own schedule. Full-time or part-time, dayshift or nightshift all depends on your preference.

This also comes into play during cosmetology school! Since I’m a full time mom, I decided to be a part time cosmetology student. Yes, it will take a little longer, but I can still spend time with my kids while also working on myself!

The variety of specializations is endless; you can be in waxing, hair styling, make up, skincare, management and so on. While in cosmetology school, Creative Images makes sure students go through different phases, with the last phase being working in their salon and making real clients beautiful! Real experience on real people! 

I’ve been sort of prospecting Creative Images for a while now and by looking at their social media and reading up on the website, I can see that this is the right place for me. I know that when I start cosmetology school here, I will be joining a family. A group of men and women who genuinely care about my success. I also came across this video:

If you’re a creative person with a passion for style and glamour, want a career that’s stable and flexible, and a working environment that’s enjoyable and lets you socialize with people, LISTEN UP!!

With dedication and commitment, it’s a fast track to finish cosmetology school! It’s even possible to obtain a license within one year! If you’re looking to pursue a profession in cosmetology, check out our courses here at Creative Images!

Are you ready to change your life with a new, exciting career? APPLY TODAY 

Merry Christmas, everyone!

We make sure the students are well-prepared after graduation so they have a large clientele who will follow them to their new salon! It’s so great to be a part of something that nurtures student’s development as a person with goals in mind and that gives true experience rather than classes that don’t have anything to do with your degree!

Want Glowy, Soft Skin? Follow These Winter Skin Care Tips and Tricks

skin care programsWinter is here, and that means dry, flaky skin. The lack of moisture in the air can lead to itchy skin, a blotchy complexion, and a dull appearance. In order to make sure your skin looks glowing and feels soft all winter long, follow these winter skin care tips that will help you put your best face forward.

Wash in lukewarm water
While you may love taking a hot shower to warm up on a cold day, the high temperature can strip your body of its natural oils and dry it out. When you can, wash in lukewarm water; your skin will thank you.

Moisturize when your skin is still damp
Don’t waste any time and moisturize your skin as soon as you get out of the shower. Moisturizing damp skin helps seal that dampness into the skin, so leave a bottle in your bathroom and use liberally every time you wash.

Keep an eye on the ingredients
Many heavier creams contain petroleum, which can actually dry skin out. As a rule of thumb, it is always a good idea to choose a water-based cream instead of one that’s oil-based, as it will retain the moisture already in your skin. Some great hydrating ingredients to look for include jojoba oil, lavender, chamomile, and shea.

Splurge for a facial
You deserve to be pampered once in a while, and so does your skin! Getting a facial in the wintertime will introduce you to deeply hydrating ingredients that will cleanse and replenish the moisture barrier of your skin. Plus, working with a skin care expert will help you customize the perfect routine for soft, glowing skin.

Don’t forget the SPF
Protecting yourself from the elements is incredibly important in the wintertime, and this includes sun protection. The sun can be pretty harsh in the wintertime, so slather on the sunscreen before you head outside on those bright winter days. Also, don’t forget your hat, gloves, and scarves to protect any exposed skin from the elements.

If you enjoy the world of skin care and beauty, then you should consider sharing your knowledge with others! Beauty schools offer many different skin care programs, cosmetology classes, and esthetician programs for those who strive to share their expertise. Considering only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful, attending skin care programs at Creative Images will help you boost the confidence of others.
