Some things just go together. Milk & cookies, bread & butter, up & down, here & there… and beauty school and Halloween. Hair, makeup and nails taken to extreme levels of creativity and craftsmanship, and at Empire, we start early.
October 1st we kicked off the 31 Days of Halloween Challenge. Each day, one Halloween inspired look created by one of our amazing students or alumni was chosen to showcase across our social media channels.
And our students did not disappoint. In fact, it was hard to choose just one to highlight each day!
Take a look at some of our favorites! And follow #EBSTalent on Instagram for amazing work done by our students and alumni all year round!
Meanwhile, in Louisville, Kentucky our Empire Beauty School campuses were over-run with zombies for the 4th annual Zombie Crawl event at EBS Hurstbourne!
This yearly competition hosts students from all 3 Empire Louisville campuses and pits teams of students against each other to create the most terrifying zombie looks possible!
Requirements included creating an overall zombie concept, then transforming that idea on to a model or models to create a skit on the runway with music.
Local salons come to judge the students work and prizes are handed out for the first and second place teams. Nearly 100 students took part in the annual Halloween inspired event!
In Pennsylvania, our Pottsville campus put Halloween makeup to the test with a Face Off Challenge! A mix of spooky, cute, scary and dazzling looks dominated this competition. First, students chose an inspiration photo, then had to incorporate or re-create the look on half their face and half on their mannequin. It’s not as easy as it looks!
Finally, we couldn’t just let our students have all the fun this Halloween! Plenty of our educators, campus staff, and home office staff joined in on the costume fun!
What makes Halloween so special at Empire is watching our students apply the techniques and skills they learn in school to create these amazing, over the top looks!
It’s not just fun, it’s education. At Empire Beauty School we do our best to teach the fundamentals of beauty in a way that allows our students to adapt the basics and create amazing, inspired looks for their clients. Having fun along the way is a great bonus!
