Hello all! This thread is for discussions and questions about crafty things to do with your hair--ie cutting, dying and styling it yourself. Please remember this is a crafting forum! I'll continue to move threads from the completed projects if they fit more into discussions and questions.

This topic was started from the Show off your hair! And questions about hair styles! thread.  We split the topic so there would be a Discussion & Questions thread and a Completed Projects thread.



Please post your questions regarding hair styles, dyeing, etc. here.



If you'd like to show of your Completed Project (hairstyle) go to this thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=163395.0

I have a question.
I hate my job. I hate how my job treats me.
I want to go to cosmetology school to be a hairdresser. I'm just scared of all the stories I hear about people hating it and dropping out. my mom was a hairdresser and she taught me alot about everything. I think I'd really love doing it. I guess I'm just scared of failing. so is it a worthwhile career to persue? can I make good money off of it? what are some things I should know about it?

i think it really depends where you are and how good u are; which you never know til you try. If you're in a metropolis and damn good, you can make a killing.
However, if you're in a small town and only mediocre (as my friend discovered) then you can't expect to make much more than minimum wage...

I pretty much agree with what Jezebel said, I went to hair school for eight months or so and ended up putting it on hold so I could work f/t and get married/get the heck outta here, and I honestly don't know that I'll go back when we do move. I'm more into the clothes side of things and figured since I liked doing MY hair I'd like doing it as a living, which was not so much true.

As far as making a living, it depends on how talented you are and where you're at - even in a small town, if there's a "classy" hair place/salon you can still make a killing. But it's not super easy money like everyone makes it out to be. And school, to be blunt, sucks the big one. You're basically working 30-40 hours a week with no pay except whatever tips the clients give you, and I don't know if it was just my school or not but jeeeeeeeeez those girls were CAT-TY. It was like an episode of Days of Our Live every freakin' day, but with crankier people.

However - if that's what you want to do, don't let me discourage you - I'm just saying, don't go into it expecting roses and sunshine and nothing bad, b/c then you'll only be disappointed. Good luck with whatever you do, hon!

I've had black hair for a few months now and I've noticed that people treat me differently.  I wonder what that's all about.....

Anyway, how do you get black out of your hair?

Very, very carefully  Tongue And be forewarned, it will probably come out very orange-toned, so you'll need to get a toner or factor that in when dying over it. And after all of this, you'll probably want to get your hair trimmed!

I was wondering if anyone could answer this question for me!?!? I was given a bar of LUSH Henna hair colour from my mom the other day, with no instructions. I have browsed their website forum and was just wondering if any fellow craftsters have tried it and  if so any tips or suggestions on using it!

Here is the website.... www.lush.com

Thanks for any help or feedback on this!

Since you ask for experience, I can only give you mine.
I'm a year out of cos. school, assisting at a higher end salon working towards my chair (in Chicago thats commonplace), and am comfortable in knowing I have job security. Everyone needs haircuts, even in a recession.
As long as you enjoy it, why not do it? I was the only one in my class of thirty who did not have a relative in the business, had a bachelors, was also six years older then 95% of the aforementioned class, and had no earthly idea if this was something I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Still don't, but I'm enjoying it for the moment and by next year I will have paid off my education.
I believe as long as your heart is in it, you'll make money. I'm not a naturally talented stylist but I've worked hard towards it and have been reaping the benefits. It was difficult holding a part time job & going to school and dealing with classmates that were absolute idiots but beauty school is just the basics. It's not a harbinger of what kind of stylist you'll become. That's under your own control and you're lucky enough to have a mother who will influence your style as well.
Best of luck in your decision.

I believe in their paper catalogue that have detailed instructions on how to use their henna products, available at their stores.
Still I must warn you to do a patch test, as some people suffer reactions to the plant derived dye, mostly painful scalp issues. Also you should not use it on previously dyed hair, and it is permanent which means no using any other sort of dye until it grows out. Plan on keeping hennaed hair until then.
