Where is Emily now?

Emily is 7 months into her professional career as a Apprentice working under Accentric Salon & Spa in Sage Hill Calgary, Alberta. Emily has successfully completed 2/4 government exams so far, and cannot wait to complete the next 2. Emily separates her skills from others by “stepping out of a comfort zone”. She builds a diverse clientele by servicing clients from many different ethnicity’s. Where some may not be comfortable with Extremely curly hair – she excels! She loves to challenge herself with all hair types and to continue her growth in the industry!

What Emily does?

Emily provides all services, however her specialty is Balayage, up styles, braiding, and cutting curly hair. We asked Emily how important re-booking is to her. This is her response: ” asking a client to re-book is very important. Depending on what the service is, keeping a client consistent with their appointments and home care will keep their hair maintained and they will be grateful”. This is her way of keeping her clients coming back for more & happy with their results.

After Graduation: a Survival Guide by Ria Parsbey 

My name is Ria and I’m the owner of Talon Nail Bar. I graduated from the Nail Technician Program at Delmar College in 2015. I was, and still am, completely obsessed with all things beauty and fashion. It was no surprise to anyone that I got into the beauty biz. When I was 16 I became a makeup artist, when I was 18 I entered the fashion industry, at 19 I ran a makeup school, and became a Nail Tech when I was 30. Here’s my guide to surviving the beauty biz and nail industry after graduation.

img_6657

I always knew that I wanted to be a business owner. But I’ve seen many salon owners and beauty professionals open businesses thinking they can provide great beauty services. But it ain’t that easy and they often end up with really poor businesses– this is why I am choosing to do things a little bit differently.

talon nails blue background

I opened Talon Nail Bar in November of 2015 and worked as a sub-contractor. Unfortunately, I made my first big business mistake. I worked for a young woman that had no idea how to run a business. She had no business plan, no marketing plan, absolutely nothing. I wasn’t given the opportunity to build any clientele and I quickly wasted 8 months. It was time to move on.

Let me tell ya, there is a huge learning curve when it comes to running a business and providing services at the same time. I learnt that you need to do your research, trust no one, be bold, ask questions and always have your own back.

I was given an amazing opportunity to move Talon Nail Bar to a cooperative beauty boutique in Inglewood. I did my research, asked a lot of questions, and before I knew it my luck had changed. Now that I had found a great location for my business it was time to grow my clientele. This is by far the most exhausting and challenging part of the beauty business. With an industry that is full of competition it’s so important to stay on top of the game. So, how am I doing this? Social media, social media, social media.

img_6658

Learning and educating yourself about hashtags, posts that keep your audience’s attention, taking amazing pictures of your work and keeping things original. Reposting other people’s work and tagging others is also a fantastic way to draw attention to your posts. Advertising on social media is another great way to gain followers and clientele, it’s also an affordable way to get the word out about your business. But social media fatigue is a real thing and it can become overwhelming, so limit yourself and don’t obsess over it too much!

img_6656

Okay, so you’ve got an amazing location, you’re getting the word out about your business, clients are walking through the door and now it’s all about staying on top, keeping up with trends, and staying skilled. In the nail industry, this is huge. There are new nail trends almost monthly and while only some of these trends stay around, a lot don’t. But you need to be offering the latest and greatest! This can get expensive so my best advice is to spend money on education instead of always following trends. Take as many courses as you can and learn as much as you can. Knowledge is power. I would also recommend focusing on basic skills and becoming confident with that, as the nail industry can become really overwhelming. I’ve also learnt that beauty professionals love being asked questions and educating others, so ask as many questions as possible and learn from others in your industry. This can also give you an edge on your competition and ultimately give you more confidence.

If I could offer any piece of advice for people fresh out of beauty school it would be to be yourself, stay true to who you are and never let anyone tell you that being you isn’t good enough. Trust me, this will happen. Stay authentic and do things differently. In the end it all comes down to originality.

Makeup Artistry at Delmar College

Are you interested in becoming a makeup artist? If you are, then you clicked on the right post, because today we are talking about how our makeup programs work here at the college.

Yes, programs. Not just one, but four different programs, leading to a diploma in Makeup Artistry if you choose to complete them all.

15995383_10157994387795542_1286242033_n
Makeup by instructor Erin Halisky

By breaking it down into different classes this gives you options and the opportunity to take it in full, or just focus on where your interests are.

14693806_1667879070189212_391816878432976896_n
Fantasy makeup by Makeup 102 grad Taylor

So let’s break these classes down for you.

Everyone starts in Makeup 101. Why? Because we aim to set you up for success. This class gives you the core knowledge you need and also gives you a certificate in Infection Prevention Control, allowing you to safely and professionally offer makeup services.

14624729_1809462419330994_6555979333498830848_n
Makeup 101 students hard at work

The focus in 101 is on natural to dramatic makeup applications and allows you to have a good basis of knowledge and hands on experience for bridal and grad makeup applications.

15978690_10157994387875542_341584775_n
Glam look by instructor Erin Halisky

Once you successfully complete Makeup 101 you have the freedom to take the other classes in any order you choose. That said, we do recommend that you take our 102 program prior to taking Makeup 104.

16789825_1887597064813602_6811496635974025216_n
Bridal makeup by Makeup 101 grad Christine

Makeup 102 is what we call our Advanced Makeup class. It is very much a hands on program that covers more advanced techniques for eye makeup, camouflaging techniques, ethnic bridal makeup, theatrical and fantasy applications, and also covers updo’s and heat styling for hair. This gives you the advantage of being able to style hair on photo shoots and for bridal or grad purposes, as well as doing the makeup.

Hair styling for photo shoots and bridal is covered in Makeup 102

Makeup 103 is our Airbrushing Workshop. This covers basic airbrushing principles to body work and stenciling. We are proud to partner with pro brand TEMPTU for this module, and include a professional grade kit with compressor and hand piece.

Makeup 104 is our Special Effects Makeup class. Learn how to work with latex and gelatin to create amazing fantasy pieces, including prosthetics.

We partner with the best in the business. Our kits are truly pro kits and prepare you to enter the industry as a freelance artist. Where do we source them from?

Don’t Quit Your Day Job

Have you ever thought about going back to school to learn a new skill or start a new career, only to find that the program hours and the weekly commitment would be too much? Maybe you looked into some evening classes through a continuing education department, only to find that funding was never an option.

We hear stories like this all of the time. In response we have developed a variety of programs that can be taken in the evenings and weekends.

Delmar College has been creating successful grads since 1950. We have seen a lot change over the past 67 years, and we have changed along with it. The advent of full time programs offered in a non-traditional format is just one example.

Makeup Trends by Erin Halisky

BLUSH!

Blush is back! Think 80’s and the electric blush colours they had back then. Matching it to your nail polish, your lip colour, even blending it up to as far as your temples is going to make a statement this year. Sounds a little crazy but when done properly can be such a cool look. One of my faves during these cold Albertan winters is cream blush! Apply it like you would with regular blush using a blush brush, circular motions, applying to apple of the cheek first and blending all the way back to the hairline. Gives you a beautiful winter glow!

BOLD AND PASTEL LIPS!

Having a really well defined dark or pastel lip – Both can be really hard to achieve and sometimes hard to find!  My favorite pastel and really dark colours of lipsticks I have are from MAC and MAKE UP FOR EVER.  Tip: Always apply on dry lips so no bleeding occurs.

Pastel: Sometimes when using pastel colours it’s better to conceal the natural lip pigment with your concealer before going in with the lipstick.

Dark: An easy way to enhance those really dark colours that can get messy is taking concealer to define and clean up your lip line.

EASY SMOKY EYES!

Most of us can be a little scared to try anything smoky when it comes to our eye shadows but the key is a good primer and blending. My absolute favourite to use is Painterly by MAC. Having a good amount of this layered onto the lid, apply a bold shimmery colour all over your lid using a blending brush in circular motions. For the crease colour choose an even darker matte colour. Add highlight just under the brow bone and in the corner of the eyes. This look doesn’t necessarily require eyeliner and that’s what makes it so easy. I always like loading on the mascara and adding a little gel liner in my waterline to make my eyes look more pronounced.

Saved my favorite for last….

GLITTER!

If it was up to me, glitter would be in all year long! But its sooo pretty in these winter months. You can get them in pigment form which is a little tricky to use or you can get them in the form of liquid eyeliners. These eyeliners you can easily build and get an elegant look in no time. My favorite that I recently discovered are by Revlon. You get a coloured liner on one side and a gel glitter on the other. Viola!

I am so excited for all the upcoming trends in makeup. I am also REALLY excited to announce that we are now offering a Diploma in Makeup Artistry at Delmar College. It is a modulated diploma, so you can earn it at your own pace. I’m teaching the first module in a couple weeks, and the second in March. If you love makeup like I do (a lot), come take my class!
