Hair and Makeup: Making Your Passion Your Career

They say to make your passion your profession. Ella Fitzgerald, an American jazz icon, shared this inspirational quote of the same idea. She once said: “Just don't give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there's love and love inspiration, I don't think you can go wrong.”

In any profession, your passion is a special key that could unlock unforeseen and irresistible opportunities. Success is almost always inevitable if you put your 100 percent in everything you do – this is how of a game-changer and powerful passion is. When you do the things you love, you are not only earning a good career but satisfaction that you will not get if you are doing another profession.

Hairdressing and makeup styling – these two disciplines are often overlooked and laughed upon by people – those people who don’t have any idea on how difficult it is to even make a decent makeup or hairstyle. The sad reality is that many people don’t know how to appreciate the science and art involved in these beauty improvement disciplines. Some can differentiate a good makeup and hairstyle from a bad one; while others, have no idea at all. Despite this stigma, the beauty and fashion industry, with emphasis on hairdressing and makeup, is quickly emerging and becoming more prominent. The common idea about these disciplines is that they only apply on Hollywood celebrities, television personalities, TV and print ad models, and ramp models. Since the industry continues evolve, makeup and hairdressing have both crossed borders, finding their way to common day-to-day people.

By having the fuming passion for hairdressing and makeup you open yourself to endless possibilities. Career-wise, you have many choices to choose from. You can be an effective representative for makeup and hairstyling products companies, successful makeup artist or hairdresser for celebrities and influential personalities, or even become an innovator as a business person. Landing on a career in the beauty industry is just the icing on the cake – your top prize is that you are able to do what drives you and what motivates you.

Your passion for makeup and hairstyling will your springboard towards a successful run in the beauty and fashion industry, but it is never enough. You may have unrivaled passion but you never do anything to realize your potentials, your dreams – it is most certain that you will end up doing a mediocre job. If you are serious about becoming a household name in the beauty industry, you have to work for it, work hard for it. Dreaming is not enough, and doing something is just one step. You have to work tirelessly, you have to earn it.

Are you dreaming of becoming the next Sam Fine (one of the highest paid makeup artists in the world today)? Or fantasizing on becoming the next Oribe (one of the most famous Hollywood hairdressers). If a resounding yes is the response of your heart and mind, then it is never too late to start working. First, you would want to enroll for hairdressing or makeup courses at a reputable school. Do good while school, take it seriously because not all people with passion for such disciplines will have the opportunity to learn the theories and to have formal training. It is also strongly recommended to become an apprentice to experienced makeup artists or hairdressers in order to further hone your untapped skills. You would also want to try what you have learned to your friends, colleagues, and even family members. Remember that in doing the craft you will be able to improve dramatically. Lastly, do not be discouraged if you get criticized while taking makeup courses – simply put, never give up – let your passion take the driver’s seat and take it from there.
