From gorgeous hues to glitters galore, there’s something for everyone this spring. In fact, just check out these 10 stunning trends below.   1.) Be Bold with Cobalt Blue Leave the baby blues in the drawer this season and instead, make a bold statement with cobalt blue. A rich color with a striking hue, cobalt blue is the perfect way to make your nails pop. Best of all? This color makes the ultimate combo and is incredibly easy to pair!   2.) Shimmer with Silver Sparkles Have a thing for glitz and glamor? If so, you will definitely want to try out this spring 2016 nail trend! Simply dot the tips of your nails with a silver glitter polish or go for a full glaze to really add some shine. Also, be sure to use a polish with finely sized glitter for the most sophisticated look.   3.) Dazzle in a Rose Gold Glaze Soft and feminine rose gold is one color you don’t want to skip out on this spring. Ideal for nearly every combo, rose gold is an eye-catching color that is sure to dazzle. How to sport this look? Coat every nail with a rose gold glaze or coat a single nail on each hand for a bolder take.   4.) Keep it Natural with Beige This spring, it’s time to forget about sheer nudes and pale pinks and say hello to beige. After all, what’s not to love about this classic color? Complementary for nearly every skin tone and a throwback to the creamy ‘70s hues, beige is one shade you may never want to take off. Dress it up or dress it down, this nail color is about as versatile as it gets.   5.) Cool it with Charcoal Want to keep things neutral this spring? If so, you’ll want to say hello to the moody and modern charcoal gray. Sleek and sophisticated, charcoal is the perfect way to mix things up. However, be sure to stick to matte tones to pull off this trend.   6.) Stand Out with Seafoam Calling all ocean lovers or really anyone who has a thing for blues and greens – it’s time to start incorporating seafoam. A unique yet stunning color, seafoam is sure to leave heads turning. Reminiscent of warmer days, seafoam is the perfect way to celebrate the start of spring!   7.) Rock a Bottom Line Tired of the same old trends, colors, and hues? If so, this new look is for you! Edgy yet stylish, it’s time to add a bold new flair with polished bottom lines. Expected to be one of this seasons’ most popular nail trends, this is one look that is sure to stand out. How to get the look? Simply line the bottoms of your nails and voila! Stick to black for a classic look or add a burst of color for a fresh take.   8.) Find Simplicity in Stripes While bold undertones may be striking for some, if you’re looking for something a bit more classic, consider adding thin diagonal stripes to your nails this season. A fun way to add some flair, it’s hard to go wrong with stripes. However, be sure to stick with white if you want to rock a simple yet striking look.     Earn Your Beauty Degree From Florida Technical College   RELATED ARTICLES : 10 New Beauty Trends To try This Spring

Posted on April 7th, 2016 by Florida Technical College

The Hottest Hair Trends for Summer 2016 If you’ve been thinking about signing up for FTC’s Cosmetology Diploma Program, you are someone who knows hair, makeup, and style. You probably keep up with all the trends and latest fads, right? If you’re getting into this great career, keeping up is a must. These things change quickly. To help you out, here are some of the hottest hair trends for Summer 2016: Super straight and sleek. Straight isn’t usually easy to achieve, which is good for future stylists. A big trend for the upcoming summer is to go perfectly straight and sleek. All the ladies who want to achieve this look will need a good hair stylist to get it right. Think long, flat, with a severe part down the middle or tied back into a sleek pony. Dip-dye ends. Wild colors have been all the rage in hair for a few years now. We have even seen multi-hued hair and dye jobs that mimic an ombre effect. Now, the newest trend is to just die the ends of your hair, any color you want. Go for a few inches of bright pink or just a quick dip in baby blue for blondes.   Pigtails and braids. Maybe it’s the carefree attitude of summer, but the classic kids’ style of pigtails is back for adults. Any woman can work it if you do it right. That means pairing this childlike hairstyle with more mature accessories. Braided pigtails are especially fun and easy to do for summer.   Simple buns. Talk about the ultimate in easy styling. The messy bun is back and all it takes to achieve is a quick twist of the hair and a few pins to hold it in place. A lot of women will be embracing this go-to trend this summer. Any age, any color. While we have mostly seen young fashion trendsetters take on this daring look with blue, lilac, and even silver locks, the trend is now extending to more mature women. You’re never too old to have fun with your hair. Pink, blue, purple, bright orange, nothing is off limits. FTC has a thriving cosmetology department where you can learn all the latest beauty secrets. If you love beauty and cosmetics, why not work in what you love? Maybe YOU can set the trend for next season!   RELATED ARTICLES: Hair Coloring Technique- Balayage Cosmetology Schools in Florida: Hair Care and More

5 Hot Makeup Trends for Spring 2016

Posted on April 2nd, 2016 by Florida Technical College

5 Hot Makeup Trends for Spring 2016 The arrival of spring means more than just warmer weather; it also means new trends in beauty. If you’re a makeup fanatic, you are going to love the fun new ideas for spring 2016, straight from the runways. As someone who loves makeup and style, why not use your talents in a new career? With a diploma from Florida Technical College’s esthetics program, you could become a professional makeup artist. Here are five of the coolest trends for this spring, which you can learn how to apply with the right training:   1. Glitter, glitter everywhere. Nothing about this spring’s makeup trends are subtle, and glitter is not just for little girls anymore. The runways for this season were covered in glittery makeup and glitter as makeup. For a toned down version, try a glitter eyeshadow or a shimmery, all-over face powder to give just a hint of glitter and sparkle.   2. Fun French manicures. A manicure is like makeup for your fingertips. A French manicure is a classic, but can also be a little boring and conservative. Think fun and festive for this spring. French manicures have gotten a makeover with tips done in bright colors, metallic, and even glitter. You can even add nail art to the neutral base of a French manicure to make it more fun and trendy.   3. Bright blue for eyes. For anyone who missed this favorite eye shadow shade of the 1980s, it’s back. For spring this year, bright blue hues, applied thickly, are becoming all the rage. From rich cobalt blue and teal eye shadows to shimmering royal blue liner, blues that catch attention are big right now. To go bold, try a bright blue shadow, but for a more subtle take try navy eyeliner.   4. Outlandish eyelashes. Models on the runway this spring were sporting some wild eyelashes. Some were super think, while others were extra-long. Some faux lashes were even trimmed into unique shapes or came in bright colors, especially blue. You can try this trend without looking too outrageous by trying slightly longer lashes or go bold with colored lashes with toned down shadow and liner. 5. Bronze skin. With warmer weather and sunny skies, tanned skin is always popular. This spring, look for a light touch. A light bronzer on the places the sun naturally touches is just perfect. Another technique seen on the runways this season has been a mix of shimmery bronzer with face cream for an all over, subtle glow. Makeup this spring is all about having fun and taking risks. Why not do the same for your career? If you love makeup and have an eye for trends, you could be a makeup artist or esthetician. At FTC, you can earn a diploma in esthetics that will train you for any career in beauty, from working in a salon or spa to being a freelance makeup artist. Choose from two convenient Florida campuses, take courses that work with your schedule, and take advantage of financial aid assistance and you could soon be working in the career of your dreams!   RELATED ARTICLES : New Fall Runway Makeup Trends 2015

Choosing Cosmetology Schools in Florida: What to look for

Posted on August 14th, 2015 by Florida Technical College

Choosing Cosmetology Schools in Florida: What to look for Good morning, class! We’re going to start the day with a one-question pop quiz! Don’t you just LOVE pop quizzes? What is the one obstacle that stands in the way of anyone who wants to become a cosmetologist in Florida? a) An education b) Money c) Time d) None of the above The correct answer is d), “None of the above.”   The one thing that stands in the way of anyone who wants to become a cosmetologist in Florida is passing the licensing exam. Understanding this fact will help in the selection of the right cosmetology school. Will the School Prepare Me to Pass the Licensing Exam? Don’t ever think of education as an obstacle. It is preparation. In this case, it is preparation not only for a specialized career in cosmetology, but to pass the licensing exam. Therefore, your initial consideration when choosing a cosmetology school in Florida is being certain that the school you choose will prepare you to pass the exam. For Florida Technical College, the answer is “Yes.” Course COS2006 is entitled Occupational Seminar/Board Exam Review. The exam is easy when you are prepared. Is Financial Aid Available? Here is an amazing statistic. “100% of program graduates used loans to help finance their costs” for the FTC Cosmetology program. Money is available in the form of grants, scholarships and loans – and FTC will help you get it. Give FTC another “Yes.” Financial aid is available. We’ll help you find it. How Will I Find the Time? Finding a school that offers both day and evening classes, as well as flexible scheduling, is important for anyone who may have significant responsibilities outside of school. Does FTC qualify? Yes, it does. Is There Hands-On Training? Training in practical, hands-on skills is not really training if it does not include actual hands-on training. Nearly 25% of the Cosmetology program at FTC is hands-on lab or on-site experience. That’s the equivalent of seven 40-hour work weeks. Again, that’s a “Yes” for FTC. Real training on real people. Will I Get Personalized Attention? One of the biggest fears of students in any area of study is the fear of failure. It’s important to find a school that offers small classes that allow for the kind of personalized attention that transforms fear into confidence. That transformation is one of the most critical components of preparation. Rack up another “Yes” for FTC. Do the Instructors Have Expertise and Experience? The best teachers are the ones who have “been there/done that” experience. Only they are equipped to go beyond theory and technique and add the lessons that can only be taught from real-world experiences. FTC instructors are “industry experts with real-world experience.” Will I Be Able to Gain Practical Business Skills? This is especially important for those who hope to own and operate their own business. That’s why the best cosmetology schools in Florida offer courses in ethics, legal compliance and salon design and management, just like FTC does. There is nothing like being a cosmetologist and owning my own business. What Are My Chances for Finding a Job After Graduation? No one can answer that question, and ultimately, the level of success you achieve in school or after graduation is largely up to you. Nonetheless, the best cosmetology schools offer job placement services and their students have a high statistical rate of success. In the 2013-2014 school year, the job placement rate for students at our Deland campus was 100%. FTC qualifies again. May I Visit the Campus? Yes! Most definitely, “Yes!” In fact, we urge you to visit our Deland and Kissimmee campuses to see our modern facilities and meet our staff. You’ll have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. Not to mention that you will be impressed. Click here to contact us. We would love to show you more about how we can prepare you for a successful career in Cosmetology. You will be amazed at the opportunities that await you at Florida Technical College.   RELATED ARTICLES : Cosmetology Schools in Florida: Hair Care and More Learn about Face Shapes at Florida Technical College

Learn about Face Shapes at Florida Technical College

Posted on August 11th, 2015 by Florida Technical College

Attention Cosmetology Students: They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But what if a customer walks into a salon, presents the stylist with a picture of a celebrity or model and asks for a cut and style just like the picture? Does she really know what she is asking? And is it the right thing to do? Beauty happens when the style matches the face shape. Anyone thinking about a career in cosmetology, especially as a hairstylist, should expect that this is actually going to happen a lot more than just once or twice. What Looks Good Doesn’t Always Look Good Just because a particular hairstyle looks good on Angelina Jolie, does not mean that the same style on any other woman is going to make her look like Angelina Jolie. In fact, it doesn’t even mean that the style will look good on that woman at all. You’re going to love how this style fits your face. While, on the one hand, the style that the customer wants may suit her just fine, it is also just as possible that it may not. An accomplished hairstylist will know immediately that although she can provide what the customer has requested, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the desired style will produce the desired effect. What Looks Good on One Face Doesn’t Always Look Good on Another Face One of the most critical fundamentals of hairstyle is understanding face shapes, because stylists need to understand which hairstyles are flattering for each face shape – and which are not. I like how my new style makes me look. Just how important is understanding face shapes relative to hairstyling? At Florida Technical College, we think it is extremely important. Check these phrases taken directly from styling course descriptions in our catalog: “haircut development according to individual’s characteristics” – COS1030 Haircutting I “according to individual conditions” – COS1100 Hair Care Principles “according to individual’s facial characteristics” – COS1130 Haircutting II   The emphasis at Florida Technical College is on understanding how to beautify based on each individual’s characteristics, especially the shapes of their faces. It’s Not What You Know or What You Can Do. It’s What You Do with What You Know. Sure, you can give her the Angelina Jolie cut, but ultimately she is going to be “the beholder.” Ultimately, what she wants to behold in the mirror is not Angelina Jolie. She wants to see a more beautiful version of herself. Can you make me look like Angelina Jolie? Stylists who understand what works and what does not work with various face shapes also understand how to deliver what is most flattering to their customers. It may not be possible, due to face shape, to deliver what the customer asks for, but knowing what to do and how to do it will be the learned skills that deliver what your customer really wants – to look beautiful. You can learn more about our cosmetology courses at www.ftccollege.edu. While you are visiting our website, you will be able to contact us. Someone is always available to answer your questions or even arrange for a visit to our Deland and Kissimmee campuses where you can meet faculty and administration and tour our modern facilities. From face shapes to hairstyles, FTC is ready to prepare you for a career in cosmetology.
