If you’ve recently graduated from a cosmetology school and have chosen hairstyling as your career path, the very first thing you need to do is create an impressive portfolio.
You need to build your professional hairstylist portfolio if you’re to find a great job in the beauty industry and make a name for yourself.
Apart from your educational background, training records, styling certificates, and license, one of the most important things to include in your portfolio is photos of the numerous hairstyles and looks that you’ve created during the entire hairstyling program or course. Photos are proof of all the work that you’ve done so far and a great chance for you to show-off your hairstyling skills.
Whether you worked for a magazine shoot where you created a variety of hairstyles or did it for someone’s wedding, the more diverse your portfolio is, the better the chances are of you attracting clients and finding a job!
To help you get started, here are some fun and amazing hairstyles that you can add to your portfolio and add a creative touch to it.
From pompadours to an undercut fade, there’s so much you can do with men’s hair!
Textured Falling Quiff
If David Beckham’s hair has ever inspired you, perhaps, you also love that textured falling quiff that he seems to rock flawlessly. It is undoubtedly one of the most classic and contemporary hairstyles for men and looks like a hybrid, a pompadour, and a Mohawk, along with a unique twist of its own. It takes a lot of space on the head, which makes it highly noticeable. On top of that, it looks super fun and stylish!
Fun, creative, and stylish – three words that best describe a man-bun. As easy as it is to style, one can’t deny the fact that a man-bun comes with a unique power of its own. There are also different types of this hairstyle, so if you ever have your own Men’s Hair Salon, make sure to master all the different types!
It goes without saying; dreadlocks are one of the most enjoyable and versatile types of hairstyles that you can add to your portfolio. Wear it short, long, loose, or tight, tie it up in a bun, braid or ponytail; either way, it’s going to completely enhance your portfolio.
Women’s hair knows no bounds, and the sky is actually the limit here for you can literally do anything you want with them!
Ever since Princess Diana’s pageboy cut became a big deal, the lob for women became the next big thing! A lob on its own might look too simple, and the perfect way to turn it into a fun hairstyle is by adding a messy top knot to it! A top knot won’t just add volume to it, but also revive the entire look.
When done right, vintage curls can look both fun and classy, especially considering how timeless and evergreen this hairstyle is. Pinned to one side of the head, these look spectacular and are great for your portfolio!
We all know pixie cuts can go horribly wrong, but when done right, a layered, textured pixie cut can look all sorts of things, including exciting, unique, powerful, and bold! It is one of the most distinctive hairstyles that you can to your portfolio.
