“I always suggest that a client rebook in advance, otherwise we do have a wait-list available for cancellations”. 

“My Instagram is my portfolio. It is a great tool to use for advertising the type of work you do and also attract the type of work you want to do. It also shows my progression over the years. I also use Instagram to connect with other hair enthusiast and get inspired as well”.

 KATHY WENT TO BEAUTY SCHOOL

This beauty Influencer started her career at Delmar College. Kathy was enrolled in a 3-day 1400hr Hairstyling program in which she embraced her talent and was hired directly from school. Kathy has 1,828 followers on her IG account and growing! Like many cosmetologists Kathy embraced her talent and first love and specialized in it! Color is Kathy’s forte however she still keeps fresh with cuts too!

 

Here is what Kathy has to say about Delmar College: 

“My experience at Delmar College was GREAT! I was taught everything I needed to know to enter into the hair industry with full confidence. Getting my license was a piece of cake because Delmar’s training was so intense (in a good way). I love how the classes were smaller and our instructors were very caring with our education. A lot of people will say ‘ you will forget everything you learned in hair school and develop your own ways’ but even today I am using a lot of the skills that Delmar had taught me!”

Student of the Month: Kylie Lebedeff

My name is Kylie Lebedeff, I am 22 years old. Hair school was not my first post-secondary institution I attended. Straight out of high school I attended university pursuing a degree in education. After 3 years I decided that education wasn’t for me. After talking to different schools and universities I decided Delmar College is where I wanted to be.

unnamed
Working on styling in class

I started my education at Delmar in August 2016, and have loved each day. There is never a dull moment at school; each day is filled with new theory and practical. Even when we are practicing finger waves and perms all day long, I never feel that I am not enjoying my day at Delmar.

unnamed
I really love this style I created

Getting better at the things I struggle with is all part of growing as a stylist. Cutting has so far been my favourite part of school. Andrew is a great instructor and has always pushed me to do my best and beat my goals.

Accepting my Student of the Month prize

Now that I have found the career path I feel most confident in I am thriving. My grades are the best they have been, my passion is growing every day and I love coming to school. I am confident this is where I should be and I cannot wait to grow further.

Hair + Creativity by Morgan McLaren

morgan

My outlook on hair is that it is another form of creative expression. Being someone who went to art school before hair school I can’t help but see the similarities. To me the transition has been just as fulfilling because I still get to use my creative skills every day.

morgan-1

When you look at hair, art, and design there are a lot of parallels. In hair we have to use our imagination and creative problem-solving  in order to create the desired look for clients. In art, a blank canvas is an opportunity and every client comes to us with their canvas (their hair). This is when creative problem-solving truly comes into play because you were working on a canvas that other artists before you have worked on.

morgan-2

Initially, we study the shape of our clients hair and work with that shape to create the most desirable form for their facial features. Then comes colour, where we have to work with their natural colouring as well as their artificial colouring to create our vision. To me colour is a lot like painting, our formulations are a mix of the primary colours just like when you paint. All this while figuring out the most flattering tones and which colours truly work best together. Popular today is the balayage technique, this free hand painting on your clients hair makes you truly feel like an artist. Each technique we learn can be expressed uniquely creating our own touch!

morgan-3

When it comes to styling, it really reminds me of sculpture work.  You are creating a desired texture with product to best showcase your form and colour. Also popular today is hair tattooing, which is like drawing into your clients’ hair. It’s so much fun doing that kind of work because you are challenged drawing on an uneven surface!

In regards to inspiration, like art and design, it is better to pull it from unlikely places. In hair, if you’re always looking at hair photos you are not pulling from abstract inspiration. I believe true creativity in hair comes from other places. You may be inspired by colour in nature, art, your daily life, food, and an infinite amount of other places. I think the combination of creativity and technical skill in hair makes it so fulfilling.

morgan-6

Like art, sometimes you get an artist’s block in hair. You may go through times where you feel uninspired. I think that is why education is so important. It challenges you to keep learning and expand your abilities. I am always left full of inspiration and fully motivated after a class.

morgan-7

Hairstylists use their creativity to create a look for their clients that suits their personality and lifestyle. Like design, you have certain parameters you have to work within and I think the hardest thing is controlling your creativity.

Our April and June Esthetics classes came together and took part in a fun team challenge. This team challenge had the theme of Diva on a Dollar. They were broken into a few different teams, were then given a sealed box full of clothing and jewelry, and had to create a full look that included make up, nails, and some basic hair styling based on the items they received. It was so much fun! Congrats to our winners, Brenda, Nicole, Taya, and Cheyanne!
