At The Studio Academy of Beauty, we’ve always loved the color purple. It’s even our owner Cathy‘s favorite color! We have known purple is a powerful, vibrant color all along. This year Pantone (the world-renowned authority on color), has declared ultra violet – a vibrant purple hue, as the “color of the year” and we are all for it.
Ultra violet symbolises the mysteries of the universe, the beauty of the unknown, and believing in our creativity. Now more than ever, we need new ideas, the courage to speak up, the passion to follow dreams, and the endurance to never give up. Sounds a lot like The Studio Academy of Beauty

Why Ultra Violet

This color has been a major influence on brilliant artists for decades. Musical icons Prince, David Bowie, and Jimi Hendrix incorporated shades of violet into the music industry to showcase their individuality and creative side. However, violet made it’s impact long before western pop culture took over. Throughout centuries, royalty wore violet to symbolize extravagance, creativity, wisdom, dignity, grandeur, devotion, peace, pride, mystery, independence, and magic! It’s the type of color we would like to wear everyday.

How We Live Ultra Violet

Here at The Studio Academy of Beauty we strive to push our creative limits and to chase our passions. Each person that enters our studio (be it a student or a client) is there to express their individuality. How amazing is it that we can help them show their creative side?

Believe it or not, the way you feel about yourself and how your look will spark your passion, motivations, and creativity.

Students Work

At our “Vibrant Color Day”, students incorporated the color ultra violet in their looks. We had so much fun working with such a strong and vibrant color. It was awesome to see our students show their creative side.

Wear Ultra Violet

We understand that wearing a color as bold as this one can be intimidating. It’s all about moderation. We have picked some of our favorite looks that are centered around ultra violet. Take a look and be inspired!

Discover The Secret to Not Losing Your Day Job While You Study for a Cosmetology Career at Night

Study Cosmetology at Night

Great news! There’s absolutely no reason that a hectic schedule should prevent you from having a cosmetology career. There are several things you can do, in regard to managing your time, so you can study at night. Here are a few to consider.

Schedule Your Time

Scheduling your time is a great way to be more productive. Try to do it at least a week in advance. If possible, schedule a dedicated time to study and stick with it is much as you can. During that time, turn off your phone and any other distractions. Don’t check your email or social media accounts. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by how much you can get accomplished.

Get Up Early

Getting up early typically means that you have time to get more things done. When this happens, it also means you have more time to study at night. If you’re not a morning person, you might find the transformation into an early riser slightly difficult. However, as each day goes by it will be easier to get into the groove.

Learn How to Say No

While it may be challenging, one of the most important skills you’ll need to master is the ability to say “no”. As long as it doesn’t directly involve the health and well-being of your immediate family, gently remind friends that you need time to study. Most of them will be accommodating to the situation and totally willing to spend time with you when you truly can.

Change Your Mindset

Bestselling author, Stephanie O’Dea, suggests that changing your mindset is crucial to time management. She goes on to say, “It’s the largest obstacle to overcome. If you’ve already decided you don’t have enough time in the day, you’ve already defeated yourself.”

Find Your Most Productive Time

Many people prefer studying at night, especially when it seems to be their most productive time of the day. Remember, you’re always most efficient when you’re feeling your best.

Get a Good Night’s Sleep

Getting a good night’s sleep, every night, is extremely important. Your brain needs rest to perform well. Remember, the things you don’t get done one day will still be waiting for you the next. Don’t sweat the small stuff!
