"You Know You're A Hair Stylist When ________" Fill in the Blank!

By Alison Shipley

Staff and stylists pose for a shot at Metro for Men salon in Irvine, California: You know you're a hairstylist when its all about the image!
MODERN SALON's Facebook community of nearly 50,000 fans continues to grow by the minute. Not only because of the work, inspiration and education WE share, but largely because of the work, inspiration and education YOU share! MODERN editors are so impressed at the creativity displayed on our page every single day, and we can't thank you enough for showing off your talents.
Take MODERN fan Marci Wolcott, for example. MODERN posted a pic of a braid making its way around Pinterest, and after it got thousands of "likes," we challenged our fans to recreate the look. Marci not only recreated it, but shared her how-to video on our wall. Her work was so impressive, she became spotlighted as a MODERN SALON TV Featured Artist in our latest episode.
Not only do we LOVE all the work, photoshoots, and color formulas you're sharing—but we want even MORE! We're SO close to 50,000 fans, but MODERN needs your help! Go to, and on the right side of the page, click "invite friends." Make sure to invite your industry colleagues/peers/friends to connect with MODERN. AND, to show off their talents. Not only will they get the opportunity to catch the eye of a MODERN editor (and maybe become a MODERN SALON TV Featured Artist!), but they'll also get to have a little fun, too  : )
Recently, we posed the question: "You know you're a hair stylist when _________" and the comments came flooding in—nearly 600 replies, and they were so hilarious everyone was laughing and "liking" about how true they are. Check out some of our favorite responses below.

We are lucky!

Valerie Prieto When you can satisfy 10 women a day, a few men in between—without peeing or eating, and still keep smiling.... Men can barely handle one. ;-)
Andra Day You go to pay for something at the grocery store and hair is stuck to the bills you are paying with or my fav, lol, you never skip the ritual of dumping the hair out of your bra when you get home.
Shelly Beatty When you see everyone's hair as an open canvas and your feet hurt more after you sit down than they did when you were standing!
Beth Ciola When even at christmas your family has the nerve to ask, "Hey did you bring your scissors I could really use a hair cut."
Mara Daly Your hands look 40 years older than your face.

Porcelain Doll: Makeup Tutorial

Doll: makeup tutorial

Did you know you can bring attention to the natural beauty of your eyes by taking the focus off of them? Follow this tutorial for a ‘nude’ look with a strategic kick of color that will transform you into a perfect little doll of porcelain!


Keep it simple – a wash of nude eyeshadow and some black mascara will do (top lashes only). Use white eyeliner pencil on the waterline, concentrating on the outer corners. Using Nymph eyeshadow, outline the inner corners with a thin brush. Curl your lashes and apply two coats of mascara.
Tip: To really open up your eyes, curl your lashes again, after mascara’s dried. You’ll be amazed at the difference it makes!
If you have dark eyebrows, simply brush them and style with a drop of gel. If you have lighter eyebrows, fill in with a light pencil, but don’t overdo it – the browless look is in!
There are few secrets to a ‘porcelain’ complexion. One is liquid foundation, which gives you the smoothest coverage you can get. My liquid foundation of choice is L’Oreal’s True Match – with 24 shades to choose from, you are guaranteed to find one that matches your skin perfectly. And, it’s only $10.50! Pour a little puddle onto the sponge and apply evenly all over the face. Secret #2 to flawless skin is to literally eliminate all visible flaws – so cover up any blemishes, dark spots and under eye circles with concealer and don’t let any of them slip by! I use Paula Dorf’s Magic Stick concealer. Set the face with translucent powder – be generous, it makes a difference!
Apply Siren as blush onto the cheeks. (Detailed tutorial on blush application can be found here.) Blend well and wipe off excess blush with a large cotton ball. If the color is still too bright, go over it with the powder again.
Last but very important touch – if you have a skin highlighter (I’m working on some for my line), put some on the middle of your chin, bridge of your nose, and top of the cheekbones. It’s a little trick that will give you an instant glow!


When wearing bright lipstick such as reds, using a lip liner is a good idea. I’m a big fan of Revlon’s Timeliner for Lips in Real Red. Because this is still a fashion look, I opted out of the traditional ‘doll’ mouth, and I went for more modern, bow-shaped lips. Draw a desired outline (feel free to go outside your natural lip line) with a pencil, fill in with Retrofuturist directly from the tube, press your lips together. Dab on some clear gloss on top. Voila!

Study From Total Beauty Media Group Shows Strength of Luxury

Study From Total Beauty Media Group Shows Strength of Luxury

Posted: February 24, 2012
In a new study from Total Beauty Media Group, data from the company’s respondents showed that women, regardless of age or income, have spent money on luxury beauty products within the past 12 months. While 43% of consumers made their luxury beauty purchases through discount websites in the past year, the majority of respondents choose to buy these products from specialty retailers—furthering the overall luxury purchase experience, even during a time when increasing numbers of consumers are closely watching their spending.
Additional key insights from the study include:
  • More than 50% of respondents purchased makeup or skin care as their last luxury brand beauty purchase.
  • All respondents regardless of age or income have spent money on luxury beauty products within the past 12 months.
  • More than 43% of respondents purchased beauty or personal care products through a discount website within the past 12 months. This makes beauty and personal care products the most popular category among respondents for online luxury discount shopping, ahead of designer clothing, designer shoes, spa services, vacations, fine dining, concerts, sporting events and “other” luxury goods.
  • Across all ages and income, the top two channels for purchasing luxury beauty products were specialty stores.
  • Quality came out ahead of price as the most important factor cited by respondents when selecting a luxury beauty product.
  • More than 60% of respondents spent less than one hour or no time at all researching their last luxury brand beauty purchase.
  • Sampling was the number one factor cited for influencing a purchase, followed in second by reading product reviews from other women.
