Cosmetology student

8/17/2012

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to update about my first week in my new school!

As most of you know, i just started cosmetology studies, they take 3years. And FYI it's nothing like in US , in Finland, cosmetology is just like being a nurse, but taking care of skin. We study a lot different types of skin/foot/hand/face/nail diseases and learn to cure them. Also we do have some spa treatment classes and some light makeup classes (makeup studies are only few week thing so it's really basic stuff)

And well, we also study massages and different types of skin treatments, like facial masks, body masks, handcare,footcare...etc

Anyway, the only thing that's actually challenging for me in this school is that i had to change my style a lot haha.
Well, i'm not sad or mad about it, it's just hard for me to do "neutral" looks and be without my piercings.


Also waking up so early is challenging. And that my schooldays last usually something like 8hours. 



I am soooo sick of my everyday look. I just want to wear a wig, throw some glitter on my face..



I'm so pretty.


Even my clothes are super boring. I have to wear white shirt everyday until i get my cosmetologist uniform. 
Also, i can't wear heels, so i have to wear sneakers all the time...

Need to dye & cut my hair asap. It's hideous. Gonna bleach and kill it when i get time and money.

I also don't have any lashes or lenses on. So weird.

 Luckily i own so many white shirts lol. Still boring tho.


 Some teachers told that we should only wear neutral colored makeup but i did a blue look just because i got so sick of the freaking brown that i wear everyday...

Yesterday we did some hand massaging, it was surprisingly difficult!

 And today we studied some bone structure.

 Nice bodybuilder arms here.


I just wish i could look like this at school, boo!
But haha, if i want to get customers and look like professional, i have to look "neutral" ~




What do you study?

  2. You look great even without the glamorous makeup. I guess it's fine if you use some colour in your makeup at school, just don't make it as dark as you're used to. And I think in the end all these sacrifices will be worth it. :)

  4. Wow, I still think you look very beautiful even withou piercings and only little make-up! But I totally understand how you feel. When I started my studies (Biotechnology) I had a hard time to get used to wearing no make-up at all to the laboratory classes! Especially since I have quite bad skin and felt very uncomfortable not covering it up... I still have the chance to wear make-up during the theory lessons, so it's not that bad, but as soon as I start to work I probably won't wear any make-up during the week anymore, only on week-ends... I have a practical training semester starting in September and from what I heard we're not even allowed to wear contact lenses to work x_x so I'll have to go with glasses and without make-up @_@

    I'm still wearing mascara and draw my eyebrows on anyway... because they're blond and since I dye my hair black I refude to look like a total dork every day :'D but I wouldn't wear anything else... I kinda got used to it, and also, after all it's for the safety of your work because the make-up can cause contamination in the lab etc. so I understand....


    It's really interesting to hear what you learn at school! looking forward to more updates :D

  5. I was the same when I was in college, I live in Ireland and studied Theatrical and media makeup along with fashion and photographic, We had to stick strictly to our navy uniform and very very nuetral makeup which sucks when you are a crazy makeup fan. In saying that though our makeup would be taken off so many times to be used as models for other girls that it was fine to not even wear makeup some days which was something I had to get used to!

  6. You look gorgeous, with or without your wild looks! It's actually good to see the more natural side of you, even though your transformations are gorgeous!

    I study occupational therapy!

  10. I think you look beautiful no matter how much or how little colour you wear, but I totally understand wanting to rock your style and not being able. I hid my tattoos when I was studying because not everybody likes them and they're still frown upon : / Good luck with cosmetology school ^^ xx

  11. Boring as you feel your new look may be, you still look amazing. I wish I could look that good on a "boring" day...haha.

    I'm studying psychology. I feel like the oldest student because I waited so long to start but at least I'm doing it now. :)

  14. Serbian language and literature with general linguistics.
    Getting my master's degree now, module: Serbian as a foreign language.

    You look great even with "neutral" makeup, but I do get that it's about how you feel.

  15. Ohhoh, näytätpä erilaiselta ilman lävistyksiä ja "neutraalilla" meikillä. :D Mutta erittäin positiivisellä tavalla. ;)

  16. I really think that this neutral look suits you too, but I can see that it's not really you :D Hopefully you'll do some more colorful make-ups for the weekends and show those to us too~ :)
    Oh, and I'm starting my studies at the University of Lapland and I'm going to major in fashion design :D

  18. jännä että tolla alalla on jotain väliä kuinka räikeä naama on, kun luulisi että meitä lähihoitajia kiellettäisiin. :d

  19. Tulee ihan omat kouluajat mieleen, mä valmistun vuonna -07 kosmetologiksi. Nyt mulla on oma yritys ja saan olla oma itseni ja tehä mitä lystään. Toki mä näytän töissä suht siistiltä, ja lävistyksiä ei enää muutenkaan oo.. Mut shokkiväriä löytyy päästä ja tatuointejaki löytyy sekä tummat meikit. Koitahan jaksaa sitä neutralointia siellä, onneks ajat muuttuu ja meitä vähän erilaisempia ihmisiä ei enää katota niin pahalla kuin ennen. :)

  21. I went to uni to study science, speciically biology and I wore leather pants/black jeans, leather vest/ black v neck t-shirt and a leather jacket with knee high boots and black smoky winged out eyes and red lips. And a white lab coat for lab classes, of course.

  23. I studied computer game design and I did a short course in makeup. The makeup course I did wasn't very good :/ I skipped a lot of classes but I still passed it because it was so easy :O

    When you are qualified I'm sure you can go back to your style ^_^

  24. You still look lovely! I went to cosmetology school, but I'm in the US, so I was happy I pretty much got to look how I wanted with the exception of wearing a uniform. Good luck with your studies! I hope you love it and are having a blast with it even if you can't wear your awesome style :-).

  25. Hola.
    Te felicito, realmente estudiar es lo que nos abre las puertas a nuevas oportunidades, y la carrera que tú haz escogido es grandiosa, porque no solo reflejas la belleza en tí misma, si no que le das la oportunidad a más personas de tenerla. Sigue adelante, y te vez linda aunque uses colores neutros. Eres muy valiente y deseo que termines pronto tu carrera para que nos sigas enseñando de belleza.
    Saludos.

    Hey.
    Congratulations, really studying is what opens the doors to new opportunities, and career you've chosen is great, because not only reflex beauty in yourself, if you give more people the opportunity to have it. Go ahead, and you look cute even if you use neutral colors. You are very brave and I hope that soon you finish your career for us to follow teaching of beauty.
    Greetings.

    Sorry for my english!!! jejejeje :)

  30. When I was studying, I could do everything I wanted - colorful makeup, goth hairstyles and torn stockings - but now I work in the consulting business and have to wear neutral makeup and suits all day :(

  31. Jotenkin tuntuu hassulta, että sinun neutraali meikki on noin radikaali. Onhan siinä neutraalit värit, mutta itse kun pitää näyttää vaan ujosti edustavalta sekä hajuttomalta ja mauttomalta, niin kunhan vaan laittaa mineraalimeikkiä ja ripsaria... :D Kaunis meikki tosin, itse olen aivan liian laiska!

    Ihmettelen kyllä, että miksi naristaan aina kauneudenhoitopuolella lävistyksistä, tatuoinneista ja täytyy olla tylsän näköinen. Minusta freessi, siisti ja asiallinen voi ihan hyvin olla sellainenkin ihminen, jolla on erikoiset meikit ja lävistyksiä naamassa. Enemmän sitä huomioi sen jutut ja käytöksen kuin ulkomuodon, mutta ehkä teille tulee harjoittelussa joku mummoryntäys tms. :D

    ReplyDelete
  32. tosiaan ihmetyttää että noi tarkkaa ulkonäön kanssa.. ite ku kävin reilun vuoden lähihoitaja alaa,ei sanottu mitään! sait näyttää miltä halusit ja käyttää mitä halusit. tietty harjoittelussa pitää lävistykset ottaa pois (vasta toisena vuonna) ja kynnet ei saa olla lakattu/liian pitkät, mut muuten sai tosiaan olla ihan oma itsensä..
    mut tsemppiä koulunkäyntiin! ps. ihana tuo sinun "neutraali" meikki :3

  33. I'm currently doing my Diploma in Beauty Therapy. I've already graduated with my Certificate in Beauty Services, so I'm a qualified Beautian and nail technition.
    Just keep at it, I had to tone down my style to. But since starting my diploma, I have been the make-up artest for 2 hair dressers in regional hair compitions, I'm being taken on an all expenses paid trip to the supreme hair comps in 2 months and I have been asked to go to fashion week to be a makeup artist there.
    Thought I should let you know that it does all pay off.

    Keep going, and you will do great =)

  34. I studied makeup courses last year so there was no limit to how much makeup you can wear, though most the time you would turn up to class with none since you'll work with a partner in class to learn how to do professional application. The only thing I would said was challenging was waking early and having to wear an ugly black t-shirt and cannot wear short skirts.

    I hope you enjoy your course :)

  35. Toi viimenen lause jäi soimaan päähän. Samalla kun katsoo tuota sun viimeistä kuvaa, mis oot oma itses "ei-neutraalina". Siis jos työntekijällä olisi noin kauniit ja taidokkaat meikit,mitä sä käytät, tietäisi olevansa ammattilaisen käsis. Omalla persoonallisella tyylilläs saisit tosi paljon asiakkaita..ainaki ennakkoluulottomia. Ärsyttää kun ihmisiä tuomitaan ulkonäön perusteella. Sä näyttäisit niin ammattilaiselta, olisi sul millaset meikit tai vaatteet tahansa. Ja vastaus kysymykseen: itse opiskelen metsätaloutta ja erotun vähän joukosta, joten aliarviointiinkin välil törmää. Mut kun itse tietää kuka on ja mitä tekee ja miksi, niin se riittää. Kellekkään ei tarvi selitellä. Näköjään purkauduin sun kommenttikenttään :D Hahah mut sul on ihana blogi <3

  36. Tykkään uudesta vähän tavallisemmasta tyylistä. :) SOpii sulle hyvin ja näytät itseasiassa paljon kauniimmalle vähemmällä meikillä joka on luonnollisempi. Tollasia paksuja piilareita ei kannatakaan käyttää joka päivä(paitsi jos on normi linssit).

  37. That one picture of you reminds me of Olivia Wilde ! :) You're beautiful!

  38. You look awesome even without a lot of make up and in neutral colours and clothes.
    It's great that you are willing to change your style for school/work. It doesn't change who you are.
    I hope you'll do great in school and have great success <3

    I'm studying fahion design and I'm very lucky because it doesn't matter what we look like. I always wear all my piercings and can show my tattoos and blue hair. I also wear coloured contacts when I'm not too tired to put them in in the morning xD

  39. Opiskelen toista vuotta parturi-kampaajaksi, ja itekkin tykkään tummista meikeistä ja lävistyksiä ja tatuointeja löytyy. Meillä ei onneksi ole niiden kanssa mitään säädöksiä, kunhan ei tule kouluun likaisella/sekaisella tukalla yms. Ja meillä asiakkaat on suurimmilta osin 50 ikävuoden yläpuolella, eikä kukaan ole vielä kertaakaan kattonut pahasti tai kommentoinut mitään negatiiviseen sävyyn :)

  42. I love all your looks! Really! But it's pretty sad you can't experiment more with make-up there, wear what you want etc. I'm studying Japanese, and I'm lucky we don't have any dress or look code. So if I'm not too tired in the morning I can always put my lenses and a bunch of make up. But during the hot weather I just stick to the basics, it's too much to put it all on and then watch my make up melt in the heat. Enjoy your studying <3

  43. I have studied hairdressing a while ago and now in September I'm taking a pro makeup class for 2 weeks =) I'm really impatient and I hope it's gonna be good coz it was freaking expensive !!! I'll finally be able to find a job that I love when I'm done and have my diploma !

    Courage for school, I know it's not fun to wear neutrals all the time but you'll end up with an good education that you like and that's worth it =)

  44. Actually studying cosmetology in the US is pretty much exactly what it is in FIN. All the MUA's we have here went to make up artistry classes, and girl with your talent that's what you should do too. I think in FIN it will cost you about 3500 euros and its about 6 months but it'd be so worth it!

  45. I'm studying to become a stylist. It's quite hard to ^^ ve do makeup, hairdo's, nails and massage :P

  46. I'm in my last year os psychology, but i have tatoos and wear a loooot of makeup everyday, my hair is pink and orange and i think i'll be like this the rest of my life (i hope so) I hope people think it will be fun to go to a cool psychologist hihi

  47. Hey, I'm just so happy about that I study "only" graphic design, and can wear what I want :D. In cosmetology you have to study also what a nurse has to, because then you can also do piercings and tattooing as well(..here it's so, don't know if in Finland it's so..) - and I think that's pretty cool :)

  49. maybe you should come work in the US after you graduate or even the UK. instead of looking "neutral professional" doing you're normal makeup would showcase your talent and make you MORE appealing to the clients. it's curious to me that is not the case in finland! goodluck! i'm sure you'll do great things

The course comprises of both written and practical work and usually spans over one or two years(depends upon number of chosen subjects). The course covers subjects such as instrument care, sanitation, hygiene, chemistry, physiology, skin care, nail care and hair styling.
