MSC Student Gives Michele Bachmann a New Style and New Look!

Michele Bachmann, former politician and member of the U.S. House of Representatives, visited Minnesota School of Cosmetology this week and left with a whole new look and a very big smile!

Ms. Bachmann, who represented Minnesota’s 6th congressional district from 2007-2015, has been visiting Minnesota School of Cosmetology in Woodbury for five years.  She is one of our regular clients who continues to give back to higher education and student learning.

At Minnesota School of Cosmetology our students study the art of hair, skin and nails for 10-12 months to gain the requirements necessary to become a licensed cosmetologist.  One of the requirements is to perform salon services on clients. In order to advance in their technical skills and become savvy cosmetologists, they need to have people in the community who are willing to come to the school for hair colors, perms, relaxers, haircuts, manicures, pedicures, makeup applications and facials.

Ms. Bachmann has been providing that one-on-one ability for our students to hone their skills by supporting them with regular visits.  This week, Ms. Bachmann took a big leap.  She came in for her typical 1-2 inch trim but changed her mind and decided to spice things up a bit.  Instead she took off nearly 12 inches! Ms. Bachmann shared with her stylist/MSC student, Kim Castro that she has had long hair for 19 years and she was ready for a change.

Castro also shared, “Ms. Bachmann was very pleasant, she was interacting with me the whole time and we had a very enjoyable conversations.  She shared with me that she’s been coming here for five years and the reason she continues to keep returning is because she likes it here and enjoys meeting all the different students”.

What Hair Color Is in for 2015?

Spring is here! The sun is shining and a fresh new batch of beauty trends is in bloom. Are you ready to switch up your style? Here are six of the hottest hair color ideas this season.
 

1.  TORTOISESHELL

The tortoiseshell is predicted to become a popular spring hair color technique, much like the ombré was in 2014.

James Corbetter, celebrity colorist, describes the tortoiseshell as: “…warm browns, honeys and ambers just like a tortoiseshell comb. Blondes are more golden, with a few babylights worked into these tones to create the subtle dimension. Think Jessica Alba and brand new mom Blake Lively. I have a lot of clients asking for this!”
 

2.  MONOTONAL BRUNETTE

Are you still rocking your dark winter hue? Keep it! An all-over dark brown shade with no highlights is a great hair color for brunettes this spring.

Anne Hathaway, Katie Holmes and Olivia Munn are just a few celebrities sporting the one-dimensional color this season. As a bonus, the upkeep is minimal and doesn’t require frequent trips to the salon for touch-ups.
 

3.  RED

Red can be gorgeous when it complements the skin tone, but many women are afraid of making a more drastic color change from their natural hues. This season, it might be time to take the risk!

“Red hair is major right now and will be for spring, too,” says colorist Aura Friedman.

There is a red for everybody, whether it’s copper red, chestnut red, strawberry red or a more vibrant, statement-red. Be sure to ask a trusted stylist which shade would work best for you.
 

4.  CARAMEL BLONDE

One hair color for blondes this season incorporates caramel highlights. Ask your stylist for warm, buttery highlights that blend naturally with your hair color. Keep it fresh and on-trend by not going too light at the ends.

Look to celebrities Diane Kruger, Bar Refaeli and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for inspiration.
 

5.  BABYLIGHTS

Say goodbye to the dip-dyes and ombrés. This season, a much more popular highlight technique will be babylights that start about a quarter down from the roots.

Regardless of the hair color you’re starting out with, babylights can add dimension and shine to your tresses that looks sun-kissed and natural.
 

6.  PASTELS

If you’re feeling more adventurous with your locks, a pastel hair color — whether in the form of highlights or as an all-over color — is all the rage this season.

Seen on celebrities Hillary Duff, Nicole Richie and Katy Perry, colors like lavender, baby pink and teal are part of the colorful trend.
