Style it how you like, the simple truth is a quality education in hairstyling has never been more crucial than it is today. The anticipated retirement of a high percentage of baby boomers in the next 15 years forecasts a marked deficit in skilled trades workers in the province. This, paired with the recent advent and rise of the boutique salon in Manitoba, and society’s ever-increasing emphasis on health, happiness and personal wellbeing, means an enhanced demand for skilled and qualified stylists. Winnipeg Technical College (WTC)’s hairstyling program gives students everything they need to succeed in the field, enabling them to step straight out of the classroom and onto the salon floor.

Nearly every woman owns at least one impulse beauty buy that she has no idea how to use, or is too intimidated to try on her own at home. MAKE UP FOR EVER’s team of professional artists will take a look inside consumers’ make up bags and teach them how to properly use what they already own, regardless of the brand, as well as overhaul products that are the wrong shade or texture or may be past their prime. MAKE UP FOR EVER is bringing the same techniques used by wardrobe styles in the closet to style your makeup bag at their innovative Make Up School. The idea is to make your makeup bag work harder for you.
Consumers are invited to book appointments for 30 minute one-on-one makeup bag evaluations inside the Make Up School, where a professional artists will go through their bag, provide an interactive, hands-on lesson explaining how to apply their products, and show them how to supplement what they already own to create their most flattering look. Each client will walk away with a new makeup bag, a custom face chart detailing how to use the products their brought, and a list of any additional products recommended by the artist to round out their look. A professional photographer will also be on site to capture each client’s “after” look, which will be uploaded on an album on the MAKE UP FOR EVER USA and Canada Facebook pages. Continue Reading

When it comes to colour, the outcome may always be the same, but there are different ways to do it. Depending on where you learn the technique, applying highlights to clients can vary. We stopped by the Aveda Institute Winnipeg last week and got some beauty school 101 tips on their method of highlighting hair.

The colour line is customizable to the client, so no one will get the same colour. Instead of providing a traditional binder of colour swatches, students at the Aveda Institute are required to create a look book which showcases photos of models’ and celebrities’ hair, as well as photos of different objects, such as foods that represent commonly asked-for colours.
