End of Semester Reflection Paper

Grade 10 Hairstyling and Aesthetics Experience

Nicole Allam

 

Throughout this semester in cosmetology and aesthetics, I have learned a great amount of new skills that I can take throughout my life. Hairstyling up-dos such as the partial pony up do, special affects like the severed finger, and different ways to do makeup have been a wonderful experience to learn. I really liked how we did so much different things, than just working on hair all the time. It really opened my eyes, that there are many career options open when taking this course than just being a hair dresser, such as a special affects artist, esthetician, or a dermatologist.

 

The things that I really enjoyed about this course includes learning new hair up do’s that I could try out when I go to dances or any special occasions. My favourite up do out of the ones we have tried out would be the partial pony up do. I learned how to backcomb and cover the backcombing, to give the hair shape and volume, as well as creating curls that look full and to their best degree. One of my greatest challenges throughout this course I think was hiding bobby pins, I’ve never really liked them, but after a few up-do’s I found myself with practice, improving much better than when I first started out. I also really enjoyed the evening and daytime make up assignment. I love learning how to blend the eyes shadow colours properly, how to tell if you are “warm” or “cool”, which face shape you have and how to minimize bad features, and bring out good features from your body. Special affects was also a neat experience, I would say my favourite thing we learned would be the severed finger, when I was finished I would believe it was a real finger!

 

I have a new respect for hairdressers and realize that people think the job looks easier than it really is. I found myself struggling with the up dos at some points, and that is just the beginning of hairdressing! There is still the colouring, and cutting, it takes an artistic ability to be able to create such amazing hair dues. For career choices, out of all of the many options, I think I would consider being a dermatologist. The skin is an amazing organism and if people do not take good care of it, they could end up with scaring or skin cancer ete. It would be a great career helping people to better understand how the skin works, and treating patients with certain problems with their skin. I never really thought of going into a career through cosmetology or aesthetics until I took this course, but now I would consider being a dermatologist. In civics and careers, when researching the different options for myself, dermatology was an option suggested to me. As I researched more about this job, I was more interested in this option and thought about some of the skin problems I learned in cosmetology this year.

 

In conclusion, I have learned many new skills and improved old ones with this course and I have a new perspective on careers in this field. Along with a better understanding of how makeup, and hair can be transformed into something completely different but amazing.

French Twist Full Updo

The improvements i think that i could make to this up-do would include making sure all of the hair is smooth not frizzy, playing with the curls to make them look better, making sure the curling iron curls all the way up to the root of the hair pieces to give it the full look, no bald spots showing and hiding all bobby-pins.
