How to Rock a Vampy Fall Makeup Look

When we think of fall makeup, the first thing that comes to mind is a bold look with a vampy lip at the center of it. We love this look at The Salon Professional Academy (TSPA), Collegeville because it’s a show-stopping look that anyone can pull off. Here are our tips on how to rock the vampy fall makeup trend!

Find the Perfect Vampy Lip Color for Your Skin Tone

At the heart of any autumnal makeup look is a deep, dark, beautiful lip color. These shades can seem intense, but there’s no reason to be afraid of the vampy lip! The key is to find the perfect shade for your skin tone.

Fair Skin

For those with fair skin, choose a rich berry tone. Make sure you think about your undertones as well. If you’re fair and cool-toned, choose something with a blue undertone. Those who are fair and warm-toned should choose a lip color with yellow undertone.

Light/Medium Skin

Choose reddish brown and plums if this is your skin tone. People with the light to medium-tan skin tones usually have a neutral/warm undertone. That means you can choose from a broad range of shades, whether you want a super bold violet or a more muted deep red color.

Olive Skin

Olive and tan complexions look beautiful with deep maroons and brown-based lipsticks. While maroon will look the best with your undertone, you can also easily pull off mulberry and dark plum colors.

Deep Skin

Those with deep skin should choose dark purples and blue-based reds. Darker skin tones can also pull off purple and dark chocolate brown colors. Warm undertones look great with brown-hued shades, while cooler undertones are better off with a blue-based purple or red.

Prep Those Lips

When wearing an intense lip color, lip balm and lip liner will be your best friends. Moisturizing your lips will give the color a smooth base to work with. If your lips are dry and flaky, make sure you exfoliate with a lip scrub before applying any color. Lip liner isn’t vital for every lip color, but when dark colors bleed outside the natural lip line it will be noticeable. You can use a nude, nearly invisible liner, or find one that matches your lipstick. Using this to trace the border of your lips will keep everything looking neat and in place.

Keep Your Eyes Minimal

Keep in mind that this is just a suggestion, not a rule. When you wear a bold lip it’s going to make a statement. To keep things balanced, try keeping your eye makeup more minimal. This could mean just applying liquid liner and mascara, or even doing an eyeshadow look with neutral colors. However, if you’re feeling like going all out with a statement look, go for it! Pair that vampy lip with a smokey eye and fake eyelashes. It’s all about what makes you feel confident and happy!

Pay Attention to Your Cheeks

A dark lipstick, especially for the fair-skinned out there, has the power to wash out your face. Keep things healthy looking with blush and bronzer. The bronzer will add warmth and definition back to your face, while the blush adds a beautiful flush of color. You can stick to neutral tones or go for a berry blush shade to match your lips!

Don’t Forget the Brows!

To finish balancing out your face, make sure to fill in your brows. The dark lipstick will draw attention to the lower half of your face. If your eyebrows are too light or not filled in, the focus will be unbalanced. For a polished, cohesive vampy look, whip out those brow products and get those babies filled in!

Haven’t read part one yet? Click here to get the insight on step one in your journey!

1. Prepare Your Resume

You worked so hard on your education and perfecting your skills, now is the time to show it! Your resume is more important than you would think. Take the time to organize it and present it in a way that shows just how professional and suitable you are for a career in the beauty industry. Some things you should consider including in your resume are:

  • Your top work qualities.
  • Links to your social media profiles.
  • Contact info of your references.
  • Beauty skills you specialize in.
  • Name of the school you receive your training at.

The list above gives you a few ideas of what we would highly recommend you include in your resume. The final touch every resume should have is something that will help you stand out! That could be a quote from your favorite beauty artist, something about you that is interesting or light-hearted, or why you entered into the beauty industry. Another way to set yourself apart from the crowd is an interesting looking resume. You’re a creative, after all! Check out these unique and artistic design suggestions from Hloom.

Your resume is your personal ad, so make sure it’s unforgettable!

2. Do Your Research and Be Prepared

Many people think that when applying for a new job, the employer is the one that decides if you make the cut. We’re here to tell you that is not entirely true.

You are interviewing them just as much as they are interviewing you! You are the one that decides if you accept the job or not. That’s why it’s important to do your research. Before you go into an interview, it’s crucial that you know what the company does, what their priorities are, and what position you are applying for. While you are researching for the job you want, take the time to prepare yourself for the interview you will be walking into. You will want to be prepared for any questions that you might be asked during the interviews. Some common questions might include:

  • Tell me about yourself.
  • What are your strongest traits?
  • Tell me about a time you felt weak or unprepared in your job.
  • Why do you want to work in this salon/spa?
  • What attracted you to our salon/spa?
  • What were you doing before you decide to enter the beauty industry?
  • What do you know about our salon/spa and the services we offer?

It’s important to be prepared by researching the job that you want. When you are prepared you will come across more confident in yourself.

You might be given the opportunity to ask questions about the job you’re applying for. Here are a few that we suggest you ask!

  • What do you like most about your job?
  • What made you decide to work here?
  • What are the goals of the salon/spa for the next five years?
  • What about me makes you think I’d be a good fit for this job?

3. Build Your Portfolio

Your portfolio is just as important as your resume. A portfolio can be the final nudge for an employer to hire you as well as an excellent place to show examples of why you would benefit their salon or spa. Make sure to put in time and dedication to your portfolio to showcase your skills, talent, and successful projects that you have worked on. Begin your interview on the right foot! If you are feeling lost in what to include in your portfolio, here is what we suggest:

  • Photographs of hairstyles, hair colors, and haircuts that you created.
  • Your resume.
  • Letters of recommendation.
  • Events that you have worked on.

4. Look the Part

Looking your best can really set you apart from other applicants. We all know the saying, “dress for the job you want, not the job you have.” Interviewing in the beauty industry can be more intimidating than an average interview because the way you present yourself in your style will be noticed right away. If you are unsure of what to wear, give yourself time to prepare.Try on different outfits throughout the week to find a look that will wow your interviewer!

Here are some tips on making sure you look the part before you step into your interview.

Make sure your hair is done.
It may seem straightforward, but you’d be surprised how many stylists think that a plain ol’’ bun looks great. However, we suggest if you’re going to wear an updo you try something a bit more adventurous. Show off the skills you have on your own hair.

Do your makeup.
This is basically the same rule as your hair. Don’t go overboard with your makeup, but do your makeup professionally. Pretend you’re doing makeup for a model who is about to go on a business professional editorial shoot.

Wear salon-ready clothing.
All black is a pretty standard uniform at most salons and spas. We suggest showing off your wardrobe at your interview, but still keep it professional. Add a few pieces of personality. Your personality should shine through even though you’re dressed for an interview.

5. Believe In Yourself!

At the end of the day, the most important thing to remember is to believe in yourself! People can tell if you have confidence in yourself. When they see that, they have confidence in you. You have worked hard on perfecting your skills, it’s time to make a potential career out of it. We hope these insights will help you step into your interview with confidence in yourself and what hopes to be a very successful career! If you want to pursue a potential career in beauty, make sure to contact us to learn more about our programs.

6 Movies That Will Inspire You to Become a Cosmetologist

Have you ever been inspired to do something because of a movie? Certain films can be extremely influential, especially when it comes to making choices for your future. We’ve picked six of our favorite movies that could inspire you to choose cosmetology as a career. From dark and quirky to emotional and lighthearted, this list has something for everyone!

1. “Edward Scissorhands”

Tim Burton’s 1993 film about a misunderstood young man with scissors for hands has become a beloved classic. Sure, we all remember Johnny Depp’s leather outfit, Winona Ryder’s giant doe eyes, the bright pastel houses, the scary dark castle, and a cameo by horror legend Vincent Price. But what about those haircuts? In one of the movie’s most famous scenes, Edward wins the heart of the neighborhood when he gives the women (and dogs!) haircuts with his scissorhands. While these wild, ridiculous hairstyles are not something you’d actually want to give clients in a salon, it’s a fun and creative take on haircutting that only someone like Tim Burton could come up with.

2. “Steel Magnolias”

Grab your tissues for this one, because you’re going to laugh and cry. Set in the 1980s in a small Louisiana town, this movie follows the lives of six women who love and support each other through difficult times. It all starts when Shelby Eatenton (Julia Roberts) and her mother M’Lynn (Sally Field) visit Truvy’s (Dolly Parton) hair salon to get ready for Shelby’s wedding. Throughout the film, the hair salon becomes more than a setting, it’s another character. The characters have their most intimate, funny, and heartbreaking conversations within this space. If you want to see some seriously big ‘80s hair and learn how much a trip to the salon can help someone feel better, check this funny tearjerker out.

3. “Hairspray”

As its name would suggest, hair is a big deal in this upbeat musical movie. In 1960s Baltimore, the dance-obsessed teenager Tracy Turnblad auditions to become a dancer on “The Corny Collins Show”. When she wins, she’s exposed to a whole new world of celebrity, which she finds out has its ugly side. As it’s set in the 1960s, “Hairspray” pays important attention to themes of racial inequality and integration. It also does a great job of depicting how people looked during this era, especially when it comes to the hairstyles. The beehives, bouffants, and flipped bobs in this movie are spot-on, and the makeover scene (featuring John Travolta as a woman) will make you wish you could work in a musical salon!

4. “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street”

Set in a dark and dreary Victorian London, ex-convict Benjamin Barker (Johnny Depp) returns to his home after being in prison on a false charge for 15 years. When he discovers what happened to his wife and daughter during his absence, he becomes obsessed with getting revenge on the men who destroyed his life. Under the pseudonym, Sweeney Todd, he takes up his old post as a barber, where he gives straight razor shaves that you won’t soon forget. His bloodthirst does well to help out his neighbor, Mrs. Lovett (Helena Bonham Carter), who owns a pie shop and can’t find good meat to fill the crusts. We won’t spoil any more of this dark and twisted musical thriller, but if you’re interested in learning to cut men’s hair, this is a movie about what NOT to do.

5. “Beauty Shop”

In this comedy, Gina Norris (played by Queen Latifah) is a gifted stylist who has just relocated to Atlanta so her daughter can attend music school. After being repeatedly beaten down by her boss (Kevin Bacon), Gina decides to open her own salon. She buys a run-down salon, as it’s all she can afford, and works hard to build it from the ground up. Though she constantly runs into roadblocks like disrespectful clients, a jealous former boss, and a ruthless health inspector, Gina fights for her dreams and never quits. This movie is a great representation of how important passion and drive are in the beauty industry!

6. “Legally Blonde”

When California sorority girl Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon) heads to Harvard to prove that blondes can do more than have fun, she realizes how unfriendly the Ivy League can be. To comfort herself, Elle heads to the salon for a manicure, where she befriends a lonely manicurist named Paulette (Jennifer Coolidge). Paulette empowers Elle to show the Harvard snobs that you can be smart and beautiful, and Elle uses her new legal expertise to help Paulette deal with a deadbeat ex-husband. This movie is a great example of cosmetologists helping clients and making good friends along the way. Did we mention the salon is where the ultra-important “bend and snap” scene happens?

Take These High School Classes to Prepare for Beauty School!

As a high school student, you might be thinking about your future after graduation. Beauty school at The Salon Professional Academy (TSPA), Collegeville could be a great option for you if you’re a creative person who’s passionate about beauty. To prepare for beauty school, there are a few classes you should include in your high school schedule. These classes will give you a basic knowledge of certain subjects that could be important during your beauty coursework!


Stylists mix colors and other chemicals every single day. It’s important to know how products will react when they’re mixed together because the wrong mixture could result in a bad color or botched bleach job. When you have this knowledge ahead of time, it can prevent you from making a mistake when working on a client.

Taking theater class could have multiple benefits for future cosmetology students. Acting teaches you how to get out of your comfort zone and engage with other people. Theater could also give you the chance to learn about stage makeup, lighting, costuming, and set design. Learning all of these things is a great way to realize how multiple parts can come together to create something that looks amazing!

When you work in a salon or spa environment, you’ll work directly with people’s hair, skin, nails, feet, and faces. A basic knowledge of human anatomy can be beneficial. It can help you know how to approach different parts of the body. When you’re providing skin treatments, it will be useful to know about the anatomy and physiology of the skin. This can help you know what services to offer specific clients and how a product or treatment might react on the skin. You’ll also learn anatomy while attending beauty school, so taking the class in high school is a great way to get a jumpstart on your vocabulary!

Public Speaking

Working in a salon or spa is an extroverted job. You’ll likely speak with different people every day, from clients and coworkers to distributors and salon owners. A public speaking class, scary as it can seem, pushes you out of your shell and helps you learn how to talk in front of others with confidence. You want to be able to answer any client questions with full authority, right? Take this class as an opportunity to put yourself out there and find your voice!

Art is the perfect class for creative expression. Whether you’re painting, drawing, sketching, or sculpting, this is an important class for anyone who wants to work in the beauty industry. When you’re in art class, you’ll learn foundational basics like the color wheel, color mixing, and design principles. All of these are important when it comes to hair styling and makeup artistry. An art class can help you develop your sense of color and texture and teach you about basic aesthetics.
