Now you can embrace your natural hair color while also trying out new hair colors for this time of year. The best part about this look is that it works with whatever hair tone you want. Whether you want your roots to flow subtly into a caramel color or you want to make a dramatic shift into blonde, this style will look amazing!

Pastel Pink

From clothes to nails, pastel colors have taken over the beauty industry. Hair color is no exception and we love seeing the different colors people use to dye their hair. Pastel pink is one popular example of this and with celebrities recently showing off this hair color, it’s sure to be a popular shade this summer! This light hair color will look amazing against the flowers that this time of year brings.

If you’re a brunette and not looking to dramatically lighten your hair for summer, then caramel ribbons could be a great option. This balayage style allows you to keep your beautiful dark hair color, while also giving your hair something extra for the warmer season. With the lighter tones in your hair, this will be a great way for the sun to show off your new shade!

Replace Your “Instaglam” Makeup With These Minimal Trends

As a beauty school, we’re all about keeping up with the hottest trends here at The Salon Professional Academy (TSPA), Cedar Falls. When it comes to makeup, we’re 100% on board with the idea of “less is more”. While we love the super glamorous Instagram makeup trend, we also love a more natural look. Sometimes going back to basics is the best way to refresh your look. If you want to try out the minimal beauty trend this year, here are a few tips!

Start With Skin Care

It all starts with the skin. Before a stitch of makeup touches your face, make sure your skin is in check. This doesn’t mean you need a 12-step routine. It can be as simple as eating healthy, drinking water, and using a cleanser, exfoliant, toner, serum, and moisturizer. When your skin is healthy, it looks better, feels better, and will respond better to makeup. It’s also easier than ever to find skin care products that work for specific skin types. So if you’ve got oily skin, dry skin, or combination skin, there’s a skin care system out there for you!

Create a Focal Point

If you want a natural look that still has a little something special, focus on one specific area of your face. That could be a statement red lip, strong brows, fluttery lashes, or a smoky eye. If you’re used to wearing bold makeup but want to try toning it down, this is a great option. It packs a punch without looking overdone!

Add a Touch of Pink

Pink is one of those subtle colors that always looks beautiful. It looks great as a blush, lipstick, and eye color. Best of all, you can buy multi-use cream products that work in all three areas! A glowy, pink look gives you the fresh-faced look of someone who just came in from a walk in the cold. It’s natural, beautiful, and always in fashion!

Do Lighthanded Eyeliner

Love yourself some winged liner? Try doing it with a lighter hand to create a more minimalistic look. This could mean switching out your liquid liner for a kohl pencil or trading your dark black liner for a more subtle brown shade. Create a thin line and smudge it out for a more natural look that still makes your eyes pop.

Naturalize Your Brows

Intense brows have been popular for the last few years. While these look amazing in photos, try something a little lighter for your day to day life. Brow pencils and tinted brow gels are your best friend. These products distribute color and look super natural when applied with a light hand. The idea is to add color so it looks like your natural eyebrows, rather than creating those overdone Instagram brows.

What Makes TSPA Cedar Falls Stand Out?

Beauty school culture is an important part of your overall educational experience. The vibe of a school, events, and day to day life are all key factors in choosing where to attend. Our team at The Salon Professional Academy (TSPA), Cedar Falls has worked hard to create and maintain a welcoming educational environment where individuality and creativity are celebrated!

Culture That’s Unique and Upbeat

At TSPA Cedar Falls, we believe in the power of a positive attitude. From our educators to our students, staying upbeat is what makes our culture so great! To celebrate the incredible, unique students in our barber styling program, we have monthly student appreciation days. Beauty school students work hard every single day. The least we can do is give back a little each month! In addition to giving back to our students, we also do our best to give back to the community around us. For example, sometimes we allow students to wear jeans in lieu of their required black uniform as long as they bring in three cans for the local food bank. We believe in positivity and inclusiveness in all things. That’s why giving back is such an intrinsic part of our culture.

Life as a Student

As a TSPA Cedar Falls student, your daily routine is different based on where you are in your studies. Let us break it down for you!

Students at a Foundational Level

Students will start by clocking in and being greeted by their educator. After this, the class will have some bonding time to chat and recap the day before. After this, it’s time to get into class! This could include starting a new unit, testing out a product/technique from the day before, and then moving on to practical skills. We always play music during this time to get the energy flowing and increase creativity!

Students on the Floor

For senior students, the day also starts with being greeted by your educator and clocking in. Then the student will look at what’s on their book (or agenda) for the day. Many of our senior students are booked with clients for the whole day. When it is a slower day, students get the chance to research and network on social media, take walk-in guests, attend a pop-up class, or work on a mannequin to practice techniques.

Learn and Grow With Friends

We want TSPA Cedar Falls to be a safe place for students to learn, grow, and experiment. Our school is also a great place to make friends and form lasting connections. Spending your days with like-minded individuals who share your passions is a great way to make lifelong friends! The people you meet during school (friends, staff, educators) could also help you find a job after graduation.

Become a Part of Our Culture!

If a future in beauty is your dream, let our barber styling program help you make it a reality! Our welcoming, unique culture could be the perfect place to prepare you for a future in the beauty industry. Contact TSPA Cedar Falls today to apply!

Add Some Sparkle and Shine to Your Look this Holiday Season!

Happy holiday season from everyone at The Salon Professional Academy (TSPA), Cedar Falls! It’s a beautiful time of year for twinkling lights, sparkling snow, and glowing firelight. Do you know what else can glow this season? Your makeup! Follow these tips to get your best glow ever.

Try Out Glitter Eyeliner

Glitter eyeliner might seem like costume makeup, but it can be a great way to add some serious sparkle to your holiday look! If you want a classic glitter, choose a silver or gold glitter. For something extra special, try a green, blue, pink, or purple glitter liner. Glitter eyeliner looks beautiful layered on top of black winged liner, paired with a smokey eye, or just completely on its own. It’s a great way to mix things up from the same old black eyeliner you’ve been wearing all year long. Be a little bold this season and try it out!

Make Your Face Glow

Ever heard the term “lit from within”? That’s how you want to look during the holiday season! Looking glowy and radiant obviously starts with your skin care routine. Skin tends to get dry during the winter, so make sure you’re using a good combination of moisturizer, toner, and serum to keep things hydrated. Once you’ve got the skin care down, it’s time to go at it with the highlighter! Depending on your highlighting technique, you can create a subtle glow or an extreme shimmer. To avoid looking like a disco ball, stick to areas you literally want to highlight, like the cheekbones, brow bone, and the bridge of your nose.

Get a Palette that Sparkles

Make your holiday glow easy with a palette that does it all. Shimmery eyeshadow/highlight palettes are all over the place, especially during this time of year. With so many options, there’s a palette for anyone’s taste! Like glowy pink and red tones? How about sparkly neutrals or bold metallics? There’s a perfect palette out there for all of these and much, much more! Sparkly palettes also happen to make great holiday gifts. If you’ve been nice this year, consider putting one on your wishlist!

Create Lustrous Lips

Even though matte lips are a reigning trend year after year, we think there’s still a place for the high shine lip. Lip gloss and lipsticks with shimmer are perfect for the holiday season. Glow looks beautiful on the eyes and face, so why not include the lips? When applying a glossy lip, keep in mind that the product will move around more than matte formulas. Exfoliate and moisturize your lips ahead of time, just as you would with a matte lip, to keep things from slipping around too much. Applying a lip pencil beforehand can also help the product stay put throughout the day. To add an extra touch of festivity, use a lip gloss with glitter in it!

Go for the Gold

In the realm of holiday makeup colors, you really can’t get more festive than gold. Luckily, gold makeup is all over the place! Highlighter, eyeshadow, bronzer, nail polish, and even lip gloss can be found in golden tones. It not only adds a festive touch to your makeup, but it’s a great way to create a glowing warmth that’s perfect for combatting the cold weather. This year don’t keep gold reserved for your jewelry. Put it on your face and nails!

How to Maintain Your Beard During No-Shave November

Thinking of participating in “No-Shave November”? Ready to put on a beanie, flannel shirt, and let your beard go crazy? Before you let things get too wild, remember that a good beard is a well-groomed beard. The team at The Salon Professional Academy (TSPA), Cedar Falls wants you to know that just because it’s November does not mean you need to let your facial hair get scraggly and out of hand! Keep things clean and dapper this November and follow these grooming tips!

Wash Your Beard Regularly

Just like the hair on top of your head, your beard needs to be washed regularly. Our bodies produce natural oils which can cause greasy feeling hair. Washing your beard prevents this natural oil from building up and making the hair feel dirty. However, make sure you’re not overwashing your beard. Frequent washing will strip away those natural oils and leave you with a dry beard. You might assume you can use hair shampoo on a beard, but that’s not the case. Facial hair is different than the hair on your head because it comes into contact with food, drink, and others elements. Using a high-quality beard wash will keep the hair feeling and looking great.

Invest in Beard Oil

Once you’ve washed your beard, restore some of that moisture with beard oil. A good beard oil serves as a leave-in conditioner and balances the natural oils in your beard and on your skin. Your bard oil should be applied once a day after you get out of the shower, since the hair best absorbs oil when it is wet. Beard oils are usually made of natural, essential oils like tea tree, grape seed, argan, and jojoba. Using beard oil not only conditions and moisturizes, it can also prevent viral, bacterial, and fungal infections.

Get a Trim

You get your hair trimmed to keep things looking neat and clean, right? You should do the same for your beard. Regular trims can remove split ends and help your beard grow fuller and thicker. Without trimming, a beard will start to look like a scraggly mess. Getting a trim doesn’t mean taking length off your beard, it’s simply a way to keep things groomed and tidy. At TSPA Cedar Falls, we’re offering a special on beard trimming throughout November so you can keep things looking sleek and tamed.

Buy a Beard Brush and Comb

Another important part of beard grooming is using a beard brush and comb. Beard combs work great for detangling and smoothing hair when it is wet, while beard brushes are best for dry hair. A beard brush is usually made of animal hair like boar or horse, since these materials are known for reducing frizz and tangles and evenly distributing oils throughout hair. Combs are often made of smooth, natural materials like sandalwood, a durable material that helps prevent static.

Keep Your Face Moisturized

If the skin on your face is too dry or too oily, it’s going to affect your beard. When extra oil is produced it can make your beard feel greasy. If your skin is too dry underneath a beard it can start to feel irritable and itchy. Using a daily facial moisturizer keeps your skin hydrated, balanced, and smooth. This makes it easier to grow and take care of a beard. Moisturizer is also extremely important after shaving in order to prevent razor burn, irritation, and dry skin.

Make a Beard Grooming Appointment With Us

At TSPA Cedar Falls the only thing we love more than a good beard is keeping that beard well-groomed and beautiful. Come see us and give your beard a little extra love! We’re offering a free beard trim with every haircut throughout the entire month of November. Schedule your appointment today.

Ready for Autumn? Here Are Some Top Trends to Try This Fall!

Fall is upon us. That means it’s time for cooler temperatures, changing leaves, and of course, fall beauty trends! With all the beautiful styles and colors to choose from, autumn trends are always some of the year’s most beautiful looks. To give you a hand in the decision-making process, we’ve chosen five of our favorite trends for you to try out this fall!

Bold Cheeks and Lips

No matter what year it is, fall is always the season for bold red and purple tones. While a dark, autumnal lip looks great with understated makeup, pairing it with a strong cheek is a fun way to play with color. It’s all about matching your lipstick with a blush in the same color family. The trick is to not go so heavy on the blush that your lips need to compete with your cheeks. If you’re wearing a dark wine-colored lipstick, choose a blush that looks like a watered down version of that color. Going for a classic red? Choose a rosy-toned blush to create the perfect balance!

Strong Brows

With so many eyebrow trends and brow products on the market, bold brows have been a staple trend of the last few years. For strong brows that are still natural, try out an at-home brow staining or tinting product. These products come with a delicate spoolie brush that is designed to fit between each brow hair and create darker, fuller eyebrows without over-shaping them. The strokes you create with these products look like natural hair, rather than filled in or tattooed on eyebrows.

Smudged Eyeliner

For a sultry, night-out look, try the smudged eyeliner trend. Using a pencil or crayon eyeliner, apply it as you normally would on the top and bottom lashline. After this, use a cotton swab or small sponge to soften and smudge the harsh lines. If the smudging is too messy, take another cotton swab, dip it in makeup remover of your choice, and clean up any excess product. The result of this is an edgy, undone look that is perfect for a crisp autumn night on the town.

Sleek Ponytail

This is an easy and oh-so-stylish hairstyle that you can easy create in about two minutes. So if you like to hit the snooze button, or you’re just into a no-fuss routine, a sleek ponytail is a great choice. It looks stunning on straight, smooth hair, but it also works for voluminous curls. Keep the top part smooth by using a comb and smoothing product and gather it all into a ponytail. Whether you like your ponytails low or want to pull it up high, this sleek look is a winner!

Remember the stretchy headbands of your youth? It’s time to bring them back in a modern way! Embellished headbands, velvet headbands, and turban-style headbands are just a few of the options you can choose from. There are also various ways to actually wear a headband. You can use them to keep a hairstyle in place, wear one near the front of your head as an intentional accessory, or use a skinny ribbon headband to accent a ponytail or bun. A headband is a chic way to style your hair if you haven’t washed it for a few days, or you just want to add some extra pizazz.

Back-to-School Beauty Essentials

It’s hard to believe that we’re already in August! We love this time of year because it kicks off back-to-school season. It doesn’t matter if you’re in high school or college, there are a few products you need to have on-hand to stay cool, calm, and collected throughout the day. Here’s our list of back-to-school beauty essentials you should pack along with your pens, pencils, and notebooks!

Facial Mist

For an easy cool-down during the day, nothing quite hits the spot like a facial mist. Pack it in your purse or your backpack for an afternoon pick-me-up. Facial mists come in a variety of uplifting and invigorating scents, like citrus, peppermint, cucumber, aloe, and coconut. Do you find yourself suffering from the post-lunchtime slump? A facial mist is a perfect way to rehydrate your skin and wake yourself up with something that is both cooling and smells great.

Lip Balm

If you’re prone to dry lips, few things are more uncomfortable than being stuck at school without a lip balm. Luckily there are literally hundreds of lip balms to choose from so you’ll never be without one. Want something with shimmer? That’s out there. Looking for a medicated balm with SPF? That’s available too. Just want something that smells like strawberries? You can buy that. There’s truly a lip balm for everyone, so head down to the drugstore and buy a few!

Hand Sanitizer

It doesn’t matter if you’re in elementary school or college, other people are germy. Keeping hand sanitizer with you at all times is a great way to keep bacteria at bay. Use it after the bathroom, before a meal, and throughout the day to keep your hands clean. Hand sanitizers come in all sorts of scents and you can even buy keychains to attach them to your bag. Staying hygienic has never been easier!

Moisturizer With SPF

Even in the wintertime, sun protection is important if you want to keep your skin healthy. Buying a moisturizer or tinted moisturizer with added SPF is an easy way to make sure you get that coverage on your face. Dozens of brands make lightweight, non-sticky formulations that are comfortable to wear underneath makeup or on their own. If you choose a tinted moisturizer with SPF, you can use that for coverage and just skip foundation altogether.

Face and Body Wipes

Sometimes during the day things get sweaty. If you’re wearing makeup all day, sweat can lead to oil buildup, which can eventually lead to clogged pores and breakouts. Keep face wipes on hand so you can wipe foundation, powder, and other makeup off your face and let your skin breathe. Body wipes are a great way to keep the rest of body clean and refreshed when you don’t have the opportunity to jump in the shower.

Dry Shampoo

When it comes to keeping your hair looking fresh and volumized, there’s no better fail-safe product than good old dry shampoo. It comes it all different sizes and scents, with options for dark hair, blonde hair, curly hair, colored hair, and just about any other type of hair you can think of. Dry shampoo is the perfect way to deal with oily hair while also giving it a quick boost of volume and texture. Stash a bottle in your purse, locker, backpack, car, or wherever is most handy so you can slay all day long.
