Since I talked about a different form of art, dance, earlier today I thought I would keep the streak going. Cosmetologist are stylist who deal with hair, makeup, skin, and nails. They are artist just as much as a painter would be for drawing a painting.
Anna Fatherly, is a twenty-one year old hair stylist at Supreme Caliente in Baltimore Maryland. Hair for her is her way to sho
w her creative mind and for her to bring her visions to life on her stylist.
“The way a persons hair is styled can tell you about their personality. Color for instance can tell you if a person is outgoing and fun or if they are more reserved and calm,” said Fatherly.
She received her license in 2011 from Empire, a cosmetology school located in Owings Mills, MD. At school Fatherly learned how to design nails, do makeup, and do different hair styling techniques. She said going to school helped her broaden her imagination.
” I can take a pack of hair and create a masterpiece on a women’s head,” said Fatherly. I asked what exactly did she mean by a “masterpiece,” so she was
happy to send me a picture of a natural hair style that she did for a friend that wanted a different look that would make her stand out. (right side of blog)
Cosmetologist are artist also because they do nails which is a form of painting just with a smaller space to work with. Nail Cosmetologist also use paint brushes, and color just like a painter, so I think its safe to say they are the same.
Fatherly does not specialize in nails, but she did say she learned how to do nails at school. “Nails may not be my thing, but I do admired the different designs, cuts, and types or nails designs a person can do,” said Fatherly.
Every women I know enjoys a nice pedicure and manicure, so why not get creative with you designs. My favorite nail design right now is the pointy nail with designs. This look is elegant but sassy at the same time.
Hair, nails, and makeup are forms of art because its can be whatever a person envisions. For instance, everyone knows rapper Nicki Minaj and her style may be outrageous, but its different and admirable because of how different her style is. Like I said before art has no limits and neither does fashion which is a another form of art.
Fatherly said that she is always learning new style s and techniques from things she sees everyday. For
instance, she said, ” I was watching and old episode of Shirley temple which inspired me to do my clients hair in spiral curls. I had to make hair style for adult considering that Shirley temple was a little girl, but things like that inspire my creativity.”
Make up is also a different form of art because doing a persons make up is like drawing. When I do my own makeup I feel like I am coloring. I can use any colors and the end result is usually flawless.
Fatherly said, ” The right make up can transform a persons entire look. Also, the beauty of make up is that it does not always have to be colorful to be nice.”
Fatherly suggest for a women to just use a foundation, eye liner, and a simple gloss for a natural look. Make up has the ability to build a persons self esteem. The finish product of make up can be a beautiful painting if you look at it form an artistic stand point.
Many might not understand how hair can be seen as art,but I thought I would share my feelings.
