When planning our education - whether it be digital, online or show/classes - and when creating mood boards for editorial shoots, it’s always an inspiration to look at what happens on the runways.
In the beginning of the year, I shared my mission to speak and work differently to demonstrate how stylists can deliver more value to clients in today’s world. Changing language to start conversations that open the door to discovering new creative approaches in cutting and finishing globally influenced shapes. Using condensed and precision cutting to create modern details, beginning cuts in unfamiliar sections of the head and working with sectioning patterns to cut and finish hair effortlessly and quickly.
I admit it: I have a tendency to get stuck in a beauty rut. My morning routine consists of lightly misting my hair with spray to stave off the effects of humidity. That’s it. I haven’t even colored my hair beyond a demipermanent gloss. Yet for quite some time now, I’ve wanted to do something different…

Confession: I've never had my lashes done! Or I hadn't ever, up until a couple of weeks ago.
I always thought my lashes were pretty decent, especially with the help of mascara. But being in the beauty industry, or at least writing about the beauty industry, imbues one with the desire to push the envelope. My lashes were OK—fairly dark, medium length and I had a lot of 'em—but it always bothered me that they didn't have a curl, or even hold a curl.
At the beauty parlour, we wanted to design looks from the Spring / Summer 2014 Runways and produce beautiful and importantly, wearable, styles for the everyday girl. For the styles below, we used clients at Jennie Kay Beauty to reinforce just how easily these looks and trends can be created.
