So I have to admit, I have exciting news to tell you all. I just got a part-time job at Sally Beauty Supply! Since I started working at Tanning Etc. as an independent hairstylist, it has been rough from time to time. I have a decent clientele, and most of my clients followed me, but I am not completely booked every single hour that I am there. The ultimate goal is to get to the point where I am super busy all the time, but for now, times can be rough. I have been looking for another job with an hourly wage for a while now, to supplement my income and give me security (knowing I will get a paycheck every few weeks), and Sally’s was the job I wanted the most.
I stopped in one day to buy some parts for my clippers, when I decided to check if they were hiring. The girl who was working said they were in between managers and were really short-staffed, so I talked to her about applying. She told me that the next day would be good to bring in my application since the district manager would be in. I talked to the district manager and gave her my application and resume, but was sad to hear her say that she would not be hiring until she got a store manager in. I wasn’t sure that I’d ever hear from them again, but the other day I got a call for an interview. After the interview, they told me that I got the job. I start Monday and couldn’t be more excited.
Anyways, in honor of this great event, I decided to write a post about Sally Beauty Supply and some history of the company.
Sally Beauty Supply started as one store in New Orleans, in 1964. In 1969, Alberto-Culver acquired Sally Beauty. In 1972, former pharmacist, Mike Renzuli, ran the store, and by ’78 there were 25 stores open. By 1982, the headquarters was moved to Dallas, TX, and there were 119 stores open. In 1985, they bought out all of the Victory Beauty Systems stores. This later became known as Beauty Systems Group. In ’87, they bought out the 30 Ogee stores from the U.K. and opened their 500th store. In 1993, Sally Beauty acquired a total of $500 million in sales. In 1995, they expanded to Japan and had over 1,200 stores total. By the next year, they had 1,500 stores, expanded to Germany, and bought out R.M. Barnum Beauty Supply. By 1998, they had reach 1 billion dollars in sales, owned 1,800 stores, and bought out Beauticians Supply Limited stores in Canada. In 1999, Renzuli raised over $240,000 to promote careers in cosmetology. That same year, they bought out Heil Beauty Supply stores. In the year 2000, Sally Beauty Magazine was launched, and they bought out Davidson Beauty Supply stores.
In 2001, http://www.sallybeauty.com launched, they expanded to Mexico, and bought out Armstrong McCall stores. The total number of stores was now 2,300. In 2003, they bought out the West Coast Beauty Supply stores, and 93 Cosmoprof stores in 2004. In 2006, Gary Winterhalter is named President and CEO of Sally Beauty Holdings, Inc. This became a freestanding company traded on the NYSE under the symbol SBH. Winterhalter rings the Opening Bell at the New York Stock Exchange.
In 2008, Pro-Duo stores were acquired in Europe. In 2009, leading beauty supply wholesaler, Sinelco Group, was acquired in Europe. That same year, the company expanded to South America. In 2010, the 4,000th store was opened.
Today, it is the world’s largest retailer or professional beauty supplies. There are over 4,000 stores open, with stores in every state in the U.S., and Puerto Rico, Canada, Mexico, Germany, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Belgium, France, and Spain. The annual revenue is 2.6 billion dollars.
I hope you learned something amazing about the company. I know, I did. I am really excited to work for such an amazing company. I really can’t wait to start! Wish me luck on Monday, for my first day!

I want to discuss a common misconception of hair coloring. I see people ask questions like “I put a blonde color over my brown and it’s still brown” and “How come every time I use the same color, my hair gets darker?” all the time. Well I will tell you exactly why in 4 words: color won’t lift color. Like, ever.
Let me explain to you why.
This is Clarice. She has naturally blonde hair and it has never been colored. She also has no lower body or arms.
Clarice decided one day that she wanted to color her hair dark brown.
She really liked her new look, as you can tell by her huge smile, and assuming she could walk, I’m sure she would have got a ton of compliments. However, she decided a week later that it was not her thing, and wanted her blonde hair back. She had one of her friends pick up some golden blonde hair color to match her natural color from Wal-Mart. Her friend, then, applied the color to Clarice’s hair and let it sit for 45 minutes, exactly like the directions told her to do.
So after washing out the color, this is what her hair looks like:
What went wrong?
Obviously, for this analogy I used markers, because most people understand how markers work. You can’t color something with a dark color and then put a lighter color on top of it, and expect it to be the lighter color. Basically all you are doing is packing more color molecules in the hair shaft with the already dark color molecules. The result is darker hair.
Okay, let me explain a little deeper how color works.
Your hair is made of three parts: the medulla and cortex which are the inner parts of the hair shaft, and the cuticle, which is the scale-like protective covering of hair. Melanin molecules or aka color pigments are located inside the cortex. The ammonia in hair color helps lift the cuticle, allowing for the color pigments to get inside the cortex. The color molecules are packed as much as possible into the cortex. In permanent colors, which are most commonly used, the color molecules are meant to stay in there basically forever, so they are really super packed in there.
So back to the example I used, with Clarice. When she first colored her hair brown, the hair color packed a ton of brown color molecules into her hair shaft. Then, during the week that she had her brown hair, when she washed her hair she probably lost a few molecules along the way. When they applied the blonde hair color to her hair, a few blonde color molecules packed into the spaces where the few brown molecules washed out. It didn’t really do anything to her hair. Color is not meant to lift color out of hair; it is meant to deposit pigment.
But I’m sure you are wondering to yourself right now, “Yeah, but how do people go from dark hair to blonde hair?” The answer is that they either had virgin hair or it was lightened first.
Virgin hair means hair that has never been colored. It could be that the person has never used color in their life, or that all of the previous color has grown out. In either case, the hair that you see has no color on it. Outgrowth is virgin hair. Color can lift virgin hair, but it will not be that dramatic. The reason for this is that you would mix a higher volume peroxide with the color and it will lift the hair slightly, but usually not more than a few levels. You could possibly use a higher developer when coloring previously colored hair but it probably won’t lift that much and it will not work predictably. That means, anything could happen.
Now the other option is to bleach your hair. I know that freaks a lot of people out, but bleaching your hair shouldn’t ruin it too bad if it is done correctly. If Clarice had bleached her hair to the level of blonde she wanted, and then applied the color she wanted to her hair, it would have worked a lot better. Using the marker analogy, pretend that I used nail polish remover (which, according to the interwebs, removes marker from paper) first, and then colored the blonde over that spot, it probably would have been more blonde.
The other option that Clarice could have used, would have been to strip the color out of her hair. The only thing that would do would remove the color molecules that have been packed in there, revealing her natural color. Depending on how dark it is, how many times it has been colored, etc., it could take multiple processes to remove all of the color.

You already know this, but skin is by far the largest organ in the human body. Everybody can see your skin and everyone has a different color and tone. The color of your skin comes mostly from your ethnic background, although sun exposure or dye can alter it. Everyone has either a warm or cool undertone. You’re probably thinking “that’s cool, but why does this matter on a hair blog?” Well, it matters because your hair color, make-up, or clothes can either accentuate it or degrade it.
Obviously, we want to accentuate it, which will make us look more flattering. But before we can play it up, we need to figure out what our skin tone is.
I made a chart of roughly some skin colors and tones that you can try to match up to your skin.
Naturally I am fair-skinned, since I am Irish/German descent (which is as white as they come). However, I tan pretty regularly in the sun or tanning beds (which is bad because my good friend just got stage 2 melanoma removed) but I can’t help it. I hate not being tan. It feels so nice to lay out in the sun during the summer. Just be careful not to burn. I also use self-tanning lotions and get spray tans done which can make me really dark. As of now, I fall into the tan category.
A good way to tell if your skin tone is warm or cool is to look at the veins in your forearm. If they are blueish, then you have cool tones. If they are greenish, your skin is a warm tone.
I have always thought that my skin tone is warm, because I naturally turn reddish colors when I am tan. However, I do believe, after writing this article, that my skin tone is cooler. My veins in my arm are blue. I also look better with cooler colors. Green, blue, purple, magenta and silver eye shadows are the most flattering to me. I can do okay with yellow, gold and orange but they are not as good. Red is a really hard color for me to wear. Red eye shadow works okay for me sometimes, but I look absolutely horrible with red lipstick. I don’t really ever wear lipstick. I usually just use chapstick or sometimes nude-colored lip gloss.
Anyways, the other thing you can try is to hold aluminum foil up to your face in regular light. Make sure your face is clean, with no make-up, lotions, etc on. If the silver foil accentuates your face, you are cool toned. If it looks bad, then you can try gold foil. If the gold foil looks better than the silver, you are warm toned. You can do the same thing with a plain white piece of paper.Did you learn something new about skin tones? Leave your feedback in the comments!

Everyone wants nice, perfect hair. You could go to a salon and have deep conditioning treatments done or you can use some of these cool tricks at home. There are a lot of crazy things I have heard about that help your hair and I want to share them with you.
1. Mayonnaise as a Deep Conditioner
My mom told me that when she was a teenager, she used to put mayonnaise in her hair because it made it soft. ”How does it work?” you ask. Mayo contains a ton of oils and proteins that can be really great for your hair. It’s especially good for people with very dry and damaged hair, like me. They say if you make your own mayo (you can find the recipe here, at effortlesseating.com) that it is better for you than store-bought mayo, since you won’t have to deal with all the extra nasty ingredients.
To do this, apply a layer of mayo to your hair (roots to ends) and comb in through with a wide-tooth comb. Let it sit for about 20 minutes and then rinse it out.
The downfall? If your hair is fine or not very damaged, it can weigh your hair down. I’d only recommend it if you have very dry or damaged hair. The other bad thing about this is that you will smell like egg salad.
2. Beer as a Shine Enhancer
My mom also said that she used to put beer in her hair as a teenager to make it shiny. It’s true though. Beer will help add a ton of shine to your hair as well as help with dryness and damage. Some people even say it helps thicken your hair. The hops and malt in the beer are made up of protein. These proteins can bond with the individual hairs, strengthening them.
To do a plain beer rinse, use flat warm beer that has been opened for a while. Apply to your whole head after shampooing. Let it sit for a few minutes and then rinse.
3. Avocado as a Hair Masque
Avocados are packed with vitamins, minerals and essential fats that are great for your hair. On a side note, they are good for your skin too. Peel an avocado, mash it up, and add a sprinkle of lemon juice or apple cider vinegar, and mix. Add a raw egg to the mix for added protein. Apply the whole thing to your hair, and let sit for 15 minutes. Rinse it completely out. Now you have amazing soft hair. Repeat once a week for best results.
4. Gelatin as a Thickener
Add 2 tsp of unflavored gelatin (the kind to make jelly preserves) to your shampoo to thicken your hair. This doesn’t work as a permanent fix but it will make your hair appear to be thicker. It typically does the same thing that thickening shampoo does.
5. Flax Seed as a Frizz-Fighting Gel
When you boil a pot of flax seeds, they produce their own gel. After boiling the seeds, strain it and use the gel in your hair for curl-defining, frizz-fighting hold, with none of the crunchiness. Add some coconut oil for shine.
6. Oatmeal as a Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo has recently made a comeback and I hear people asking for it in the salon all the time. I personally like dry shampoo for occasions like camping, where it may be hard to shower. The downfall of dry shampoo is that it leaves a talc finish in your hair, which makes your hair appear to be grey or white.
An easy, natural alternative to dry shampoo is oatmeal. It absorbs oil as well as dry shampoo and is easy to brush out. Just apply the dry oatmeal to your entire head and try to massage it around so it gets every little crevice. When you feel it is done, simply brush it out.
7. Dryer Sheets to Reduce Static
We’ve all had those days where there is nothing you can do to rid your hair of static and fly-aways. A quick fix for this is to grab a dryer sheet and rub it on your head. They work by reducing static in laundry, so they also reduce static in your hair.
8. Ice Water as a Quick Shine Fix
My least favorite part of taking a shower is at the very end, right before I get out. I always turn the water on the coldest it will go and rinse my hair and face with it. The cold water seals your cuticle shut, which makes your hair shinier and also appear to be healthier. Believe me, it sucks, especially in the winter (it snows where I live), but it does work. It also closes the pores in your face, which makes them appear smaller. It’s only uncomfortable for a minute and then you are fine. I usually just tilt my head back into the cold water, so the rest of my body won’t get hit with it.
9. Castor Oil for Hair Growth
I remember reading a long time ago that castor oil will help your eyebrows and eyelashes grow faster. It is also said to help the hair on your hair grow faster. It works by strengthening the hair follicle. To try this, apply castor oil to your entire scalp and massage in. Cover your hair with a plastic cap and allow to sit for at least 20 minutes (sleep with it in for best results). Shampoo your hair really good to get all of the oil out. Repeat this once a week for best results.
10. Apple Cider Vinegar as a Conditioner
The pH level of Apple Cider Vinegar is close to the natural pH of hair. So many people SWEAR by using this as a conditioner. It balances the pH of hair, closes the cuticle and adds shine. Sure, you have to deal with the smell, but it goes away after you rinse your hair and dry it. To use, just splash your hair with Apple Cider Vinegar before you get out of the shower. You can’t knock it ’till you try it.

I recently came across a question on a forum about hairlines. The person asked “How do you know if you have a low, medium or high hairline?” She said she had searched everywhere on the internet and could not find the answer. So I decided to make a post about the answer.
This seems like a pretty basic topic, but I do want to clarify what the different hairlines are to those who don’t know.
People with a low hairline typically have their hairline close to their eyebrows. There is really no set measurement of a low hairline, since all hairlines are different. I would estimate that if your hairline is a few inches above your eyebrows, it is considered low. If you have this problem, I would suggest asking your hairstylist to use the edgers to trim your hairline a little higher.
Most people have a medium hairline. I have always heard that a good forehead should fit 4 fingers between your eyebrows and your hairline. If you have this hairline, you can wear pretty much any style.
People with high hairlines typically have huge foreheads. To cover it up, I suggest you ALWAYS wear bangs.
Some other terms you should know with hairlines:
A widow’s peak is when your hairline comes down to a point in the middle. It is usually not considered a bad thing to have a widow’s peak, so there’s no reason to hide it. If you do want to hide it, you can cut it off or wax it off. Marilyn Monroe’s widow’s peak was famous.
Cowlicks are formed when the direction of hair is formed in a spiral shape.
I suggest never trying to fight with a cowlick, especially in your hairline. For guys, or girls with short hair, I usually just cut it really short where the cowlick is. For girls, I suggest side-swept bangs that go the direction the cowlick wants them to go. The more you try to fight it, the more disappointed you will end up?

Do you ever wonder what your face shape is? It is important to know, because different hairstyles and make-up techniques will flaunt your best features and hide the less desirable ones. In this article, I’m going to teach you how to tell what shape your face is.
If your face is a little longer than it is wide, and your cheekbones are wider than the rest of your face, you have an oval shaped face.
If the width of your jaw line, forehead and cheeks is about equal, you have a square shaped face.
If your face is thin and roughly 1 1/2 times longer than the width, you have a rectangle or long face.
If the width of your cheekbones is about the same length of your face, and you have soft angles, you have a round face.
If your forehead is about the same width as your cheekbones, and your chin is tapered, you have a heart shaped face.
If your forehead is much wider than the rest of your face, you have a triangle shaped face.

Cybergoth is said to be the “Goth of the future.” UV, progressive fashions, huge shoes and boots, wild hair extensions, goggles, cybernetics and body modifications are all typical fashion statements in the Cybergoth world. There are really no set criteria to being Cybergoth. The sky’s the limit.
Cyberlox are a popular hair style for this trend. They are mostly made of tubular crin (stretchy tubes that work like finger traps). They come in all styles and colors. Ribbons are also added to the cyberlox a lot of times for extra style. Most people make them themselves.
The criteria for steampunk are: you have to look like you are from the 1800′s and you have to look like a robot. This style combines Victorian era styles with a punk flare.
Steampunk hairstyles are typically made to look like an old-fashioned updo. Back in those days, ladies were proper and always looked their best. This needs to be incorporated into the steampunk look.
Gyaru translates to the world “Gal” in Japanese. This trend was called Ganguro originally, which means “black face”. It is a popular style that originates from Japan. Girls usually have blonde, white or silver hair, with different neon colors mixed in it. They also paint themselves orange/tan and pack on a lot of crazy white make up.
It has become popular in other places besides Japan, and has been incorporated into other styles.
Cosplay is short for “costume play”. The focus is to try to dress like a specific character or idea. Most of the time, this is associated with Anime, Manga, comic books and video games.
Women typically wear long hair wigs.
Men typically have short spiky, crazy hair. Like Ash Ketchum (if you know who that is).
But once again, they are trying to be dressed like a certain character, so I guess there is really no set style.
Bronies and Pegasisters.
This trend is really disturbing, in my opinion. People (mostly males in their 20′s) have built an obsession with “My Little Pony” and try to dress like that. I guess to recreate their hairstyle, buy a wig?
Lolita is also a trend from Japan, and it almost combines Gyaru with Steampunk. The girls dress like they are from the Victorian era and look very prim and proper. Their hair is usually made of wigs, although sometimes their natural hair is used.
My little brother is a furry, and I always thought it was kinda weird. Furries are people who dress like animals with human characteristics. Furry conventions are held, where you can attend and mingle with other people dressed like animals.
Typically, if you want furry hair, you either have to wear a costume, or a hat or headband with ears attached. A lot of people have animal face masks that they wear also.

I guess the PC term for bangs is “fringe” so I am sorry if I offended anyone! I am just used to calling them bangs! (:
Anyways, here is a quick breakdown of different types of bangs!
1. Side-swept bangs.
These types of bangs generally should look soft and flattering to the face. They are very popular right now!
2. Scene bangs.
These are pretty similar to side-swept bangs, but they are typically a lot thicker, start higher up on the head, and a lot choppier.
3. Blunt Bangs.
I always call these “Lady Gaga bangs” (hence the picture).
They remind me of when I was 6 and my mom cut my bangs at home with kitchen scissors. However, they are very, very popular right now! These types of bangs can be very unflattering to the face, as you are using a hard line. Some people can pull them off, and others can’t. I would recommend point-cutting the bottom, to soften up the line a little bit.
4. Zooey Deschanel Bangs.
These are similar to the Lady Gaga bangs but a lot more textured and fringy. They are a lot softer on the face and more flattering on most people.
5. Wispy Bangs.
I think these types of bangs will ALWAYS be popular! They are very thin, very texturized bangs that soften up anyone’s face!
6. Pixie Bangs.
I’m not a HUGE fan of these types of bangs, although they look pretty good on people with short hair. Particularly pixie haircuts. However, I don’t think Ms. Watson pulls off this haircut. BUT! she’s rich beyond rich, so who cares?!?
7. Asymmetrical Bangs.
These bangs only look good, if they are done right. I think the girl in the picture looks awesome! They blend down to the rest of her hair and they look very flattering. This is actually pretty common right now. But like with other types of bangs, they could be unflattering on certain faces.
8. Curved Bangs.
I see a lot of people ask for these types of bangs. They frame the face on the sides and look really flattering on almost everyone. They soften the face up and look wonderful. A trick I learned for these is to pull all of the hair to the middle of the face, pinch it, and cut. When you pull it back to where they will lay, they will be curved.
9. Pin-up Girl Bangs.
I guess in the simplest terms, they are just bangs that are curled with a roller and hair-sprayed to stay no matter what. The pin-up girl look is hot right now, so I’d say go for it!
10. Bangs of the Past.
Please don’t ever do this to yourself. Ever. Unless you’re Gwen Stefani.

A typical “emo haircut” has long side-swept bangs that cover one eye. It hides the deep emotional turmoil you feel from the world. According to Andrew Hogan, a national executive member of Australia’s Optometrists’ Association, “If a young emo chap has a fringe covering one eye all the time, that eye won’t see a lot of detail … And if it happens from a young age, that eye can become amblyotic… …If you walk around with an eye patch on all day, then that eye will end up seeing more poorly than the other eye.”
Other professionals have also suggested that flipping your hair back all day could cause problems with posture.
As if emo kids don’t have enough problems as it is…..
Do you know anyone who experienced any of these problems? I’d love to hear about it in the comments.To read more about HAIR in the news, check out the archive here!
