Color Bleed Movement

One of the more popular hair trends this year is the Color Bleed. You can see this look on various celebrities like Kylie Jenner, Miranda Lambert and Katy Perry. The colored hair trend has transitioned! It is no longer just for the rebel teen. You can now spot it on basically every “IT” girl we know.

This trend is perfect for anyone looking for a fun change but not wanting to go as far as Rainbow hair (a trend we will also blog about soon).

Using a balayage like technique, the color is painted on to look as if the top and bottom colors transition into each other. The ends of hair look like you literally dipped them in paint with fashion-forward colors. The hair painting technique is also perfect for those who can’t always make it to the salon.

Our students are always looking for ways to stay on top of what is in and this trend proves to be one of the more creative looks. In these photos you can see how our cosmetology students and alumni have created jaw dropping color, inspired by the color bleed trend.

Once it fades from the everyday elements, it becomes a pastel version of the original color which is equally stunning! In the past, dark roots were an absolute fashion no-no, but this 2016 hair trend has turned that around. Color care shampoo can help keep your bright color from fading which you can always find in our Federico Beauty Boutique.

It looks like the color bleed movement has no end in sight.

Our AM esthetics class recently went through their fantasy makeup course. The completed looks blew us away! The girls did sugar skulls, fawns, mermaids and many other fantasy themes. Student Megan N., who also has a photography company called Dapper, Dainty & Posh Studios, shared some awesome photos that she captured from the class.

Our esthetics instructor (and Federico alumni) Miss Jasmine, taught the students how to make their visions come to life. The morning consisted of color theory and after lunch the students welcomed their models and got busy transforming them!

The fantasy make up course is one of the more creative “no rules” classes and we are always amazed to see what our students come up with when they are free to create!

April was a month full of events and career fairs! Our Federico Outreach manager, Tammy L., was in the greater Sacramento area with our students doing everything from cuts and styling to fashion shows.

Crocker Art Museum had a party themed “Studio 54” and invited Federico students to host a 70’s themed eye shadow bar. Esthetic student Chelsea G. was an amazing greeter and definitely the most spirited of the bunch! If there was an award for the most shadow applications, esthetic student Gabby H., would have won!

For the Yolo Community Children’s Alliance Fashion Show our students were styling hair and make up for this annual fundraiser for child abuse awareness. Cosmetology student Marissa P., was the hero of the night, she stayed late and helped cover other designer teams.

Cutting and styling hair was on the menu at Capitol Heights Academy’s “Student Day”. Cosmetology student Tatiana C. had to get out of her comfort zone and once she did, she killed it! Our barbering students improvised by sitting down while cutting since they didn’t have salon chairs.

At the Japanese Cultural Fashion Show our cosmetology and esthetic students styled hair and make-up in accordance with Japanese fashion. Esthetic student Jacey D., had the most makeup applications of the day.

Our students even got a chance to compete in the 4th annual Hair Wars! The competition was between local schools and salons. Federico Beauty Institute rocked the show with our Rat Pack Team ensemble. Although we didn’t win, we are so proud of our students who participated!

10th Annual Family Fun Day & Health Fair at the Valley High Community Center was such a challenge! Cutting, styling and chalking hair proved to be quite a task in the 40+ mph winds! The wind blew away our canopy but that didn’t stop barbering student Fausto C! He kept his cool and his chair was never empty.

Our Ambassadors represented us at multiple career fairs this month. We attended the Elk Grove and Roseville Career Fair, American Legion and Barbara Comstock Morse Elementary School.

Mustard Seed Kids get pampered

Recently our Federico Outreach Manager, Tammy L., and a handful of our cosmetology and barbering students took a trip to visit the Mustard Seed School. They gave the children haircuts and new hairstyles for their upcoming school portraits.

Mustard Seed is a part of the Sacramento Loaves and Fishes program. The school provides a safe, nurturing environment for children whos families are currently homeless. They also supply clothing, medical and dental screenings, counseling for children and their parents, and so much more.

This isn’t our first time working with the Mustard Seed kids. They are frequent visitors at our campus, usually coming every few months to receive cuts and new hairstyles. We were very lucky to have been welcomed to their school to see the children in their school environment and how the program works.

Our barbering students gave the students trims and fades. Some of the kids even got some cool design work. Our cosmetology students straightened, curled and braided the students hair. Being able to provide these services for the Mustard Seed kids was such an amazing feeling. Our students had the best time and are excited to go back!

Advanced Education Overload!

This weekend our students had the opportunity to attend Cosmoprof’s annual Spring Style show in San Jose, CA. The two day show had over 80 exhibitors in attendance. Our students had the chance to attend over 70 advanced education classes and live demos. A few of our students even had the chance to be live models.

The show kicked off Sunday morning at 9am. Industry professionals & students waited in line to get first pick of the class seats. Classes ranged from waxing techniques to balayage application demos. Barbers were out in full force as well. This year, there was a stage dedicated specifically to barbering techniques and trends. We caught up with one of our favorite industry professionals, Dave Diggs, at the Andis booth and even got to watch him demo an undercut on one of our students, Nancy D.

Another new addition to the trade show this year was the “Connect Lounge” where they held platform artist meet and greets, along with photo ops. During the two day event, attendees were able to write on the wall about what inspires them. It reminded us of our inspire hallway at Federico Beauty Institute. By the end of the day on Monday, the wall was filled with quotes, hashtags and attendee names.

With maps and class schedules in hand, our students could be spotted in classes, at vendor booths, in line for the value center and everywhere in between! We even ran into a few Federico Alumni who were doing demos on live models.

From advanced education to product knowledge to meeting industry professionals, the Spring Style Show was filled with memorable moments and advice that our students will never forget. After a fun filled weekend, they showed up bright and early Tuesday morning, ready to take all that they had learned and apply it in their school life. We look forward to next years show and we are excited to see what they will come up with next.

AJF and Federico Advanced put on another successful tHairapy event at Federico Beauty Institute on Monday the 4th. The event was open to current students as well as beauty professionals and was held in our beautiful foyer area.

We had guest artist Jason P. Hunt presenting with our Creative Director, Adam Federico, and AJF academy stylists Thu V., Andy B., and Caitlin S. Jason, who works with the POP Academy out of Romania and is Sassoon trained, was more than eager to make the trip out to Sacramento and be a part of this event.

Although the event didn’t start until 6pm, the day started bright and early for the stylists and their models. Jason cut and styled two models, while each AJF academy stylist and Adam worked on their own models before the show.

Siouxsie, also from AJF academy, did an amazing editorial look with embroidery and braids. Our Federico student ambassadors, Joel M., and Ebony R., even got the chance to join in on the fun. They did color application on one of the models and even assisted Siouxsie with the editorial look.

Once the event kicked off, the stylists got the chance to showcase their hard work to almost sixty people that were in attendance. Adam and Jason both cut live on stage. Once the show was over, salon professionals and students were able to see the models finished looks up close and ask questions. Our first tHairapy event of 2016 was amazing and we cant wait to see what else AJF and Federico Advanced have in store for us.
