Will I learn the Brazilian Blowout hair trend in beauty school?Blog ▸ Beauty Career, Beauty Student Advice | September 8, 2011
Beauty school gets you ready to take the test for your cosmetology license. We teach you how to cut hair, color hair and style hair. So, when you see all the latest celebrity trends, like the Brazilian Blowout, it’s only natural that you’ll be tempted to want to try them. You’re probably wondering if you’ll learn how to do a Brazilian Blowout in beauty school.
The best answer is ‘no’. You see, there are a lot of other hair techniques that go into cosmetology that have to be mastered first. For example, hair cutting. At Empire, you get to practice hands-on in our student salon after a few classes. Under the close supervision of your teacher, you’ll practice techniques like layering on real people. You will need to be a pro at snipping away at the these basic concepts before it makes sense to move on to advanced techniques.
The Brazilian Blowout is a new trend. It’s basically a keratin treatment that coats frizzy, tangled hair. When dried and straight ironed, the hair becomes straight, silky and smooth. The process lasts about 12 weeks. The Brazilian Blowout also costs a few hundred dollars at most salons. Here’s the kicker: You can become certified to do Brazilian Blowouts, possibly making you even more in demand at certain salons. But, only after you get your cosmetology license, and a school (like Empire Beauty School) can help get you on your way.
At beauty school, we teach you all the basics you need to pass your cosmetology exam. Then, after you have your cosmetology license, you decide what you want your next move to be, make-up artistry, manicurist, celebrity stylist, etc. You can go on to learn advanced techniques like the Brazilian Blowout. Or learn cutting edge styles from Nick Arrojo and Masters of Beauty. Let’s just make sure you’re a pro at the other stuff first.
If you’ve been giving or receiving the Brazillian Blowout, tell us first hand what it’s like. Do you enjoy performing these on clients? Any advice on the formaldehyde issues?
