An Industry That is Always Changing

There’s one constant in the cosmetology industry: the trends are always changing. At Lu Ross Academy we pride ourselves on keeping our students on the “cutting edge”. Read on to learn what’s hot right now in the world of beauty.

1.) Skin Is In

The quest for the fountain of youth is nothing new, but scientific progress is making it easier than ever to get that youthful glow. From collagen building to firming, advancements in skin rejuvenation techniques are pushing the boundaries of skincare. Because of this, skincare specialists are increasingly in demand, and the trend is expected to continue: in fact, the field is predicted to grow by a whopping 40 percent between 2012 and 2022!

2.) More Than Makeup

Beauty products are also getting in on the anti-aging action. New concealers and foundations offer coverage that perfects skin as it conceals. Whether you’re looking for the wet-finish dewy look or a creamy matte finish, today’s BB and CC creams are less about covering up and more about revealing the beauty of “minimalist” skin. Many companies are also focusing on using gentle, non-toxic ingredients which are good for people and the environment. Recent improvements have enhanced the texture, efficiency and affordability of green products.

3.) Talking Texture

There’s no reason to stick with the same old familiar finishes.The latest trends show off a variety of unexpected textures which add visual interest and dynamic appeal. From mega-matte liquid lip colors to crackle nail polish finishes, the options are almost endless. Geometric designs, color-blocking and the Ruffian manicure are all poised for big moments.

An Exciting Career Awaits You

But it doesn’t stop with lips and nails. Even sparkly arches are making a comeback in the form of mineral-encrusted brows. Cosmetology schools like Lu Ross Academy offer beauty aficionados knowledge about the latest techniques, as well as an inside track on the up and coming trends soon to hit a runway or red carpet near you.
