Bella Beauty College Sees Highlights and Lowlights Gaining Popularity in Austin South Beauty School
Austin South, USA – January 27th, 2014 – The Bella Beauty College, the leading beauty salon and college in the Austin south area currently revealed that their highlights and lowlights services were the most popular at the end of the year 2013.
To Linda Colwell, CEO of the South Austin South Beauty School the results were expected. “We spend a great deal of time, understanding our clients and incorporating trends in the industry. We anticipated our clients would find our highlights and low light services a treatment that would make them stand out.”
She went on to say that of all five Bella Beauty College locations in Central Texas, South Austin just barely edged out the other locations for the market demand for highlights and lowlight services, however other services such as haircuts and manicures were off the charts for demand as well.
Colwell theorized that the reason behind the increase in demand could be attributed to the quality of care provided at the Austin South Beauty School. 
Highlights and lowlights in hair are two different hair color techniques which differ according to the tones that are set in the hair. Highlights are traditionally lighter tones whereas lowlights are darker. This has led to the myth that lowlights can only be put in hair that is naturally lighter in color. 
“We want to dispel the myth that brunettes can’t get lowlights. In fact, there are some colored low lights that look much better on brunettes such as deep reds and rich purples.”
The surge in highlight and lowlights in the Austin South Beauty School has been attributed to the increase in lowlights by brunettes and the positive word-of-mouth that has generated.
“We understand that our best advertising are our clients, which is why we work very hard to provide them with the best service, Colwell said. This led to a huge upswing among our clients sharing our expertise with their friends and colleagues.”
Another factor in the surge in business for Bella could be attributed to the many failed DIY attempts. 
“We have seen many people who completely botched these hair color attempts in an attempt to do it at home. We pick up quite a few clients to correct the damage they or a friend of theirs has done to their hair,” Colwell said.
Colored box kits could end up doing more harm than benefit. Even if the color turns out well, people are ultimately doing unintended damage to their hair, which only appears in time. Box kits consist of chemicals, which need to be used in a controlled environment in the presence of an expert. Box kits for highlights or lowlights costs approximately $12 -$14. Considering the damage and the chemicals that users expose their hair to, they end up paying much more for the box than the printed price.
Considering this, customers could save time and money by going directly to the Austin South Beauty School instead of later after the damage has occurred. This would not only save time but also money for the client.
Colwell sees the trend in professional highlights/lowlights services continuing to be popular for her salons in 2014 and will concentrate more resources to meeting the demand. 
“2014 has started out strong, and we hope that we can not only match our current success but exceed it. We’ve also found that when one technique becomes popular, demand for other services like manicures and facials grow too,” Colwell said. “At the end of the day, customer service is a large part of the salon experience and combined with high quality services, our customers dictate what we do.”

Bella Beauty, an Austin South Beauty School, Provides Post Graduation Advice To Aspiring Cosmetologists
February, 28th, 2014 – Starting a new career in the beauty industry can be a daunting endeavor, even for students who have attended Bella Beauty College, a leading South Austin Beauty school. Students go from providing cuts, color, styling and other beautician services on customers at a discounted price under the observance of licensed instructors, to working in a salon for paying customers who expect good service and skilled stylists. It’s the most daunting transition in a stylist’s career, and some students do not easily make the leap. To help students make this transition, Bella Beauty College gives their graduates advice for after they leave the school and make their way into a cosmetology profession. 
“We have many graduating students who are anxious about starting their career in a salon,” said Linda Colwell, Bella Beauty College CEO. “Providing training is step one for our students, after the training we want aspiring stylists to know they are not alone, and they can make the transition from graduate to successful stylist if they adhere to some basic strategies.”

1 – Anticipate Competition
Students don’t anticipate just how competitive the beauty industry is. Problems in finding a job or advancing in their entry-level jobs are the biggest obstacles for students post-graduation as they struggle to carve a niche for themselves or focus on building their skills. They need to anticipate they will face competition and work to create a portfolio that expands their skill set and shows what they can do. The better they are poised to compete early on, the easier advancing in their career will be. 
2 – Underscore Your Strengths 
 Students are also faced with barriers such as the inability to market themselves appropriately. A beauty school certification is only the first step in a stylist’s career. Students get broad training from the Austin South beauty school, but they should also pick a signature skill and work toward becoming an expert in that skill. Whether it’s stylist, colorist, nail tech, or esthetician, there are always average technicians and then those who become “masters” in one or more of them because they are interested in it and excel in learning everything they can about it. Becoming an expert in a set of skills can mean a better position and more money.
3 – Persistence Creates Success
Colwell sees many students give up after an initial, brief struggle. There are more than 86,000 salons in the US, with an estimated 1.3 million employees in 2013, according to the Bureau of Labor. And the number is expected to increase considerably over the next few years. “We are entering a great period to start a beauty career,” Colwell said. “As the economy becomes stronger, so does our industry, opening up more positions for our graduates. However, students need to focus all of their energy on securing a job quickly.” 
Starting a career in a chain salon like Great Clips or Super Cuts is a great way of working alongside other professionals, and it gives students the platform they need to grow their client list.  Chain salons provide a secure hourly wage which can be a comfort for many graduates just starting out and the opportunity for learn and move up in management.  Most chain salons also offer insurance benefits to their employees.  But for new stylists who may be overwhelmed at the idea of essentially managing their own careers, a chain salon includes the added benefit of built in marketing and clientele to fill the seats right away.
4 – Use Your Austin South beauty school affiliations
Bella Beauty College is committed to helping their graduates make it in the industry. Former students are encouraged to keep in touch with their Bella Beauty College trainers and the institution for guidance, references and continuing education. Bella Beauty College has educated thousands of successful cosmetologists in Texas over the last three decades and they are deeply rooted in the industry. 
“We care about our graduates just as much as our current students,” Colwell said. “Our post graduate students should use their training and our college as a springboard to their new profession. They can come to us any time to use us as references, get feedback on their strengths and guidance on where they should take their careers.”

Bella Beauty College, which is one of the leading beauty schools in the industry, is currently operating from five locations including Austin North, Austin South, Corpus Christi, San Antonio, and Waco. In addition to training, Bella Beauty College also provides a full range of salon services to these communities.
