Why You Should Stop Watching YouTube Hair Tutorials

hair tutorialsMany people first start to explore their love of fashion and style online with hair tutorials. Online search engines often answer questions immediately. Seeing someone put together a hair style is often a layered experience. There are often several steps, products, or styling tools that must be used in a specific order to achieve the look being discussed in the hair tutorials.

DIY and Self Learning

The internet has created a haven for people who love to try new style techniques. Self learning is a available for free to anyone with an internet connection. There are rarely any disclaimers that tell what training or experience the creator of the video has.

The host of the video may have learned their techniques incorrectly.

Firm Foundation

Knowing why things are necessary is important for maintaining the health of the hair and scalp. Going to beauty school is one way to be able to easily identify what techniques are safe. Learning when someone has a scalp condition and how not to contaminate combs and brushes is important.

Avoid Trauma

Trauma to the hair and scalp often comes from over stressing hair that is already damaged. Using chemical straightening, curly perms, or other chemical processes should not be done without proper guidance. It is easy to over process the hair which could result in permanent damage to the skin or hair follicles. Braids or hair extensions that are not installed properly can lead to losing hair permanently. Hair glue that is applied improperly or left on too long can result in skin infections.

Hair coloring at home rarely turns out the right shade, due to lack of experience. It takes professional colorists several months of training to confidently approach a specific color. Doing hair with hair tutorials without proper training can lead to personal hair damage or that of a close friend or relative. Going to beauty school is one way to move into a new career.

Becoming Beauty Professional

You may be looking for a way to supplement personal income or find a new full time job in the beauty industry. Obtaining a strong foundation is the only way to move into high-end salons, and to attract clients who expect the best service.

You can become properly trained to perform a wide range of beauty services. Offering this skill is one way to stay marketable, even if the local job market has changed. Everyone is still trying to look as attractive and youthful as possible. Hair that is the right color, style, and thickness can help the wearer look years younger. Having a current hairstyle is important for clients that interact with the public for their livelihood.

The beauty industry is expected to grow to support the public’s needs. If you enjoyed this post and want to take your skills to a professional level, visit us here.
