Cosmetology Interview

Racheal Richardson

Cosmetology

 

Interviewee: Denise Nenni

 

Interview Questions

 

1. What do you think were the biggest changes in Cosmetology since the 1950’s?

Since the 1950's, teasing, the beehive and permanent waves are all out of style. I also believe that now people try to get the more softer, straighter look.

 

2. What was the first culture to use Cosmetology?

The Egyptians were the first culture to use cosmetology. They created essential oils from the melange of leaves, barks, and flowers, for the first time. These were then used in the preparation of perfumes and other refining processes. The early Egyptians also used eyeliners made from a mixture of lead, mercury, and ash. For the treatment of baldness and graying hair, a mixture of resin and beeswax was used.

 

3. Why is Cosmetology used and what importance does it have to the client and to society?

Cosmetology is used to beautify the hair skin and nails. It is also used to enhance facial features and boost their self esteem. From a professional prospective, cosmetology is used to ensure a proper professional image within society and the work force.

 

4. What advancements in technology have changed the way cosmetology is used today?

Electricity created advancements within cosmetology by changing the way tools were made and used. Also new technologies allow for people to put their face onto an imaging system on the computer. This enables the client to view what styles they would be thinking of on. This allows them to decide what to do with their hair and makeup. Computers also making the receptionists job and communication easier.

 

5. Who are the main hair designers of today, nationally and locally?

Nationally, Vidal Sassoon was one of the major hair designers. Locally, Phillip Pulisi is the major designers in Pittsburgh.

 

6. What main product lines are used today?

Paul Mitchell, So Color, Matrix and Fremisi are the main hair color products used in professional salons today. ISO, Tigi, OPI and Paul Mitchell products are the main service and retail products within the salons. Hot tools is also a major equipment brand that many salons use today.

 

7. What do you think are the most popular hair color trends used today?

Foiling the hair has replaced cap frosting. This also depends on what results the client wants. Also many people add peek-a-boo highlights / low lights, a few other hair color trends include vibrant colors, the underneath and top of the hair different colors, coloring the tips of the hair, and also the ombre technique.

8. What types of businesses are there within the beauty industry?

There is individual ownership, sole proprietorship, partnerships, corporations, and franchises.

 

9. Why is it important for the cosmetologist to have good communication skills?

It is important because the cosmetologist must be able to consult with the client and understand what service the client wants done and how they want to results to look like.

 

10. What skill sets are needed for cosmetology?

Sanitation, sterilization, disinfection, and safety are all very important aspects of cosmetology. We must also study personal development, communication, and salon business related skills. We must learn hair, nail, and skin and body care and the services that go along with each category. These include physical and chemical services.

 

11. What type of careers could your pursue in cosmetology?

There are many career choices in cosmetology. These career options include being a hair stylist, nail technician, make up artist, cosmetic sales person, or a salon owner.

The Best Jobs In The World by Tourism Australia

Tourism Australia’s “Best Jobs in the World” global campaign was launched on March 4th to look for young travelers aged 18 to 30 to fill six ambassador-style tourism roles in Australia later in 2013. The aim with the campaign is to attract young travelers to come to Australia on a working holiday and by doing that, help fill as many of the country’s 36,000 job vacancies in the tourism and hospitality sector as possible. Through its campaign Tourism Australia is looking for

 

-       a lifestyle photographer (Melbourne)

-       a chief funster (New South Wales)

-       a park ranger (Queensland)

-       a wildlife caretaker (South Australia)

-       an outback adventurer (Northern Territory)

-       a taste master (Western Australia)

 

The lucky winners of the competition will be invited to a six-month job offering them a $100,000 salary package including living costs. Who would not want a job like that?

 

Although the campaign aims at attracting young, backpacker-like travelers by appealing to their sense of fun and adventure, it allows anyone, at any age, to daydream. By offering a temporary mental getaway in a society characterized by stress and hurry, the campaign has an extremely strong emotional appeal that makes it attractive to almost anyone. It is innovative and inspiring, and makes a good story for people to share with friends and family. It is simple, yet unique, and is highly likely to provide Australia with widespread media coverage and result in an increase in not only working travel, but leisure travel as well.

Compared to its predecessor “The Best Job in the World” that was launched in 2009 by Tourism Queensland, and that received more than 35,000 applications from over 200 countries, Tourism Australia has had a massive response to its campaign with more than 75,000 applications during the first day only. I would call that PR at its best.

Is space tourism beginning to take off?

Is space tourism beginning to take off? | mpcluster2 | Scoop.it

WASHINGTON -- Sending people into space is a tough way to make a buck. Not only is it risky, but it's tough to turn a profit given the sky-high cost of rocketing into the upper atmosphere or beyond.

 

But recently, a handful of entrepreneurs, marketers and yes, even rocket scientists, have announced plans to build private space stations, blast astronauts back to the moon and even mount the first crewed expedition to Mars. As important, they're looking at new ways to pay for it, including an Axe body spray promotion that would send 22 contest winners into space.

 

Led by SpaceX of California, which recently delivered another round of supplies to the International Space Station, the combined efforts have given rise to hopes that the long-awaited era of private space exploration is -- finally -- about to begin.

Tourism statistics - summer season occupancy - Statistics Explained

Tourism statistics - summer season occupancy - Statistics Explained | mpcluster2 | Scoop.it

Summer season tourism trends in 2012 

In 15 out of 21 Member States where data is available and comparable[1], nights spent at hotels and similar accommodation establishments recorded positive growth rates during the summer season 2012 compared with the same period of the previous year.  The highest increases were observed in Hungary (+12.1 %) and Lithuania (+10.8 %) (Figure 1).

 

 

Nevertheless, this positive growth is not reflected in the EU-27 figures where a drop of -1.1 % was observed. This is due to the decline in the number of nights spent at hotels and similar accommodation establishments reported by six Member States (Italy, Belgium, Estonia, Slovenia, France and Spain) representing almost half of the total nights spent at hotels and similar accommodation establishments of the European Union.

The most popular destinations for non-residents (tourists travelling outside their country of residence) were Spain, Italy and France, together accounting for almost half of all nights spent by non-residents in the EU-27 (Table 1).

5 Reasons Why Cycling Tourism Matters

5 Reasons Why Cycling Tourism Matters | mpcluster2 | Scoop.it

Three full days of countless conversations with fellow advocates at the National Bike Summit has made us realize the importance of bicycle tourism to the larger bike movement. One of the most interesting presentations we saw was by Douglas Meyer of Bernuth & Williamson Consulting, called “Perceptions and Possibilities.” It dealt largely with how bicycling issues, and advocacy itself, are perceived by both bike advocates and politicians. There was sometimes a fascinating disparity about what would make an effective argument for cycling. Some of the themes that surfaced were having good success stories, broadening the coalition of people that support cycling, and demonstrating how cycling can help more than just cyclists. Of course, for us, it seemed obvious that promoting Bicycle Tourism addressed many of these issues. Here are five reasons we feel that bike advocates and tourism professionals have to pay attention to bicycle tourism in the coming years.

 

#1 Bicycle Tourism is Good for Business

#2 Bicycle Tourism Bridges the Urban-Rural Divide

#3 Bicycle Tourism Revitalizes Communities

#4 Bicycle Tourism Makes Bicycling Relevant to More Than Just Bicyclists

#5 Bicycle Tourism Makes Bicycle Advocacy Easier
