Getting the right shape has always remained a target and objective for many people in the society. Even after undergoing complicated procedures, many are those who indicate that their objectives were only partially met. You do not need to undergo the painful and costly procedures, just follow these fitness hints and you will achieve your dream shape in record time.
Cross train: This involves using different types of training exercises in a single workout. This is important because you are able to exercise the entire body muscles and further reduces the risk of injuring the body. You will also not get bored easily and can therefore burn the extra fat on your underbelly, neck and even in the hands.
Adjusting the fitness plan to seasons: When seasons change, many people keep away from training or take a lot of time before they adapt. When you adjust the fitness plan for example, to practice indoors during the rainy season as opposed to outdoors, you are able to maintain the process of burning the extra fat that was making you have a bad shape.
Avoid skipping while stretching: When many people fall short of time, they tend to rush to complete the fitness exercises. However, when you skip while stretching, you could tear down your muscles. This could further compromise your later fitness plans and even cost you in hospital bills.
Use the music you love when exercising: When you set out on fitness exercises, boredom could kill your morale. By putting the music you love, you feel part of the exercise and definitely want to go on. Work out tips given by professional gym instructors indicate that identity developed by listening to songs you love makes you to always want to continue. This will help you to get that special shape you have always desired faster.
Maintain a progress record: The best fitness motivation for any person undergoing fitness exercises is the sense that some positive progress is being achieved. It is therefore critical that you take the weight, sizes of the burst, hands, legs, neck and other areas you intend to get improvements. Then, tabulate the results and check whether there is any positive progress on your fitness efforts. If you do not get any change, you could change the type of exercises and how you do them. You could also seek assistance of a professional fitness instructor.

A beauty college is an institution that educates and trains students in the art and science of assisting people to look beautiful. There are various types of beauty colleges that offer many options to their students. What makes them different from each other is the fact that they fulfill different objectives. Broadly speaking there are colleges that are oriented towards attaining a state license to practice, colleges that are job oriented and degree granting beauty colleges.
Beauty colleges that aim at assisting students to get their state license essentially concentrate only on providing basic knowledge and information of the subject and usually offer a general program on cosmetology. Flexible timings and options are available to students and they can select a program schedule that suits them the best. Students who are working or unable to provide adequate time to their beauty program should consider these colleges as a good option. Also once a student has a license he or she can begin working soon after.
Job oriented beauty colleges are more focused and offer programs that are in-depth and detailed. They expect their students to keep to strict time and study schedules and attempt to provide a realistic experience of the profession. These colleges usually also offer advanced courses for their students to specialize in. Whether it is techniques, the science and art involved in making people look beautiful or contemporary courses on bacteriology, spa treatments and skin analysis, the programs on offer are complete and include all aspects of the profession.
Degree granting colleges: Some beauty colleges are recognized and associated with the state board of education and provide a degree to their students. These colleges also offer students financial aid.
With the many changes in our lives with the internet beauty colleges have also come up online. However these are not highly recommended as beauty programs require practical demonstration of the skill and talent involved and require personal interaction with the faculty for the student to truly gain from the experience.
With so many different types of beauty colleges to choose from it may be confusing for the aspirant to make a decision. The best way to decide is to first consider one’s own priorities. Do you want to get a job at the earliest? Do you have less time to dedicate to your beauty program? Then a state license oriented beauty college may be a good option. For students looking for more in-depth knowledge and want to specialize in a certain section of the profession a job oriented beauty college is more favorable. A beauty college that provides a degree also recognizes the fact that you have successfully completed a course that is approved and recognized by the state. Thus the choice of beauty college and which is the best is a very subjective one and would vary from individual to individual. What is important to realize and acknowledge that a beauty college is a must if you want to working the beauty industry and become a success.

There are many beauty secrets to follow that have transcended former techniques, but many remain timeless and we will outline these simple beauty secrets in this article.
Each year, there is a new batch of beauty secrets, as well as a few timeless classic tips that are still religiously recognized. In today’s society, many turn to celebrities to find out what is the new style, latest trend or most recent batch of beauty secrets.
The Myth of the Stars
Throughout Hollywood, there are plenty of beauty secrets that you are not aware of when you see your favorite actor or actress on the silver screen.
If you think that they have the clearest, smoothest and healthiest skin, you are sadly mistaken.
Celebrities are most certainly plagued with the same problems that everyone else suffers from, including scarring, acne, skin irritations, as well as the effects of aging.
The beauty secrets that they possess are extra measures that they take to ensure the public does not encounter these flaws.
Spa treatments are a popular beauty secret of the stars, where they not only receive pampered treatments, but can indulge in the repairing effects of some of the available products.
Celebrities come to these spas in order to receive skin resurfacing, laser treatments, as well as state-of-the-art skin peels and massages.
Products to ease skin irritations and dry skin can also be purchased from a spa, when going to one is not an option.
These items can cost up to $150 for a face cream or as low as $35 for a skin repair product.
Although celebrities turn to procedures, such as eye lifts, face lifts and removal of bags under the eyes, there is a beauty secret that is quite easy-to-follow.
Beauty Secrets For All
It simply involves the use of an eye cream.
Secret 1 – Eye Cream
A small amount of cream underneath and around the eyes can ease the signs of wrinkling and aging. Another beauty secret regarding the skin, involves the use of a good cleanser on the skin.
Secret 2 How to Prevent Fine Lines
Learning what works best with your type of skin and you will be well on your way to protecting your face from future damage.
Retinoid creams have been said to prevent fine lines from turning into wrinkles.
Another beauty secret that will not only save your face from damage, but also could save your life is staying out of the sun.
Wearing a hat on a sunny day, as well as laying on the sunscreen, can protect the skin from some of the most avoidable skin damage.
You may not have considered this a beauty secret because it is something your mother probably has told you a million of times, but standing up straight not only presents a confident aura about yourself, but can actually make you appear ten pounds thinner, as well as take five years off of your appearance.
Another beauty secret that is a no-brainer is to get a good night’s sleep.
When a person isn’t getting enough sleep, their eyes become puffy and red; skin appears dull and lifeless; and their face sports a sagging appearance.
More Beauty Secrets
Other beauty secrets include: shaving in a steamy shower for an easier, closer shave; exfoliating the skin to promote circulation and softness; as well as wearing sunglasses to prevent the wrinkles that develop from squinting.
Being beautiful does not cost a fortune and the simple beauty secrets above can be done by anyone and will help keep you looking your best.

Beauty as a Sexual Object
To fall in love — considered by some as the ultimate quest in
life, and prepared by others with a constant and unending flow
of fantasies, dreams, and enchanting ideas. And what we find
sometimes to be so uniquely freakish of a fetish of our own, so
personally vaulted and denied at every conscious inquiry — we
find, in fact, that it is a secrecy of our own sexuality and our
own fantasies, that disallows us from discovering that, what we
find to be deviant is actually commonplace in the minds of all
individuals. There is no person whose sexual ideas are unique,
no fantasy of anyone that is not based on the same roots of the
fantasies of others. This is sexuality, a social and emotional
facet of every human. So, it must be granted as truth, that it
is the repression of sexuality in our society, that convinces us
that our own sexuality is a freak, a deviancy, an intolerably
disgusting and improper attitude. Despite the fact that
sexuality has been an intrinsic part of the lives of the
hundreds and hundreds of millions of people, or the hundreds of
billions of animals, there are still some puritanical ideas of
people to oppose it. And, even if sexuality weren’t commonplace,
one would think that the argument of “so long as none are
harmed, let it be,” would be enough to justify it. I think that
it was not a matter of argument, but one of shame and
repression, that granted the puritan-minded people to believe
and preach as they do.
If, in fact, those of the puritanical ideas had no conception
of sexuality, I do not believe they could have the will to rally
against sex. If it is just a fact of life, nothing that
personally effected them, then it would not be something they
could muster so much unforgiving hate for. Alas, I do not think
these puritanical ideas have done much of anything to uplift the
personality of goodness or the character of charity. The idea
that sex is an evil is not a friend of the ideals of kindness,
intelligence, or truth. These puritanical soldiers have done
nothing but bog down the structure of civilization, waging a war
against our own animal nature. By seeing their own feelings of
sexuality, experiencing the desires and urges, the thoughts and
inhibitions, puritans find themselves villified with their own
character, ashamed and mortified. I think that people manage to
put anger, passion, and strong, powerful emotions into
vengeance, when it is their own personal nature that they are
attacking. The puritans have allowed themselves to be cruel,
brutal, and absolutely cold blooded in their war against sex. As
the blood running through civilization warmed, the extent to
which they were allowed to fight has been limited and limited.
Tortures and murders were an intrinsic part of the original
Puritan culture, when it came to their attitude about punishing
It is a rather popular statement, that beaty is in the eye of
the beholder. Yet everyone seems to interpret this statement
differently. The fact that someone or something is beuatiful is
only true because there is a critic to call it that. No artwork
exemplified beauty without an onlooker, no song brought forward
melody without a listener, no poem created peacefulness or rage
without a reader. There can be no argument to this. We find,
also, that just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so is
ugliness in the eye of the beholder. The same artwork that was
called beautiful by one may be called ugly, disgusting, or
otherwise unappealing by another. It is here that the true
meaning of the phrase may be captured. The only reason why
something is appealing or unappealing, attractive or
unattractive, is because there is a mind in the sensory organs
there to judge. The ideas of what is or is not gorgeous,
enchanting, homely, or wretched are all dependent upon the
viewer. Then we apply these ideas to a person. One’s voice is
seen as glorious in tone or rancid in quality. The face and body
become a considerable work of art or a defaced panting, or
something in between or to a more extreme. Judging a body and a
face, though, as beautiful or ugly, is a much different action
than judging a painting as either beautiful or ugly.
A person, unlike a painting or a poem, is conscious, capable of
emotion and happiness. All of a sudden, their physical
attributes become subject to criticism and judgment. What is the
purpose, though, of finding someone attractive or unattractive?
The simple and obvious answer is for thepurpose of mating and
procreation. Now that the reason for appeal or unappeal, in a
person’s beauty anyway, has been uncovered, another question
remains open. If a person’s outter shell can be judged as ugly
or beautiful, by one person or another, and since this judgment
does not help us to determine their character, should we
disregard beauty and ugliness as a deterent to a person’s true
Of those individuals who call themselves Freethinkers, artists,
independent minds, lovers of intelligence and friends of
liberty, it is the typical attitude that a person’s emotions and
way of thinking is in fact a part of their intrinsic self. There
can be no greater proof of this than experience: beautiful
people may be cruel and heartless, as the ugly people can be
intelligent and meaningful, and vice versa. A person’s beauty
does not determine the way they think. It does not make them
more kind or charitable, nor does it instill in them attributes
of vice or cruelty. This fact, I imagine will meet with no
argument from those whom have experienced the world. The
Freethinkers, though, have further advanced this position, by
incorporating this philosophy int their personal lives. They do
not judge people on their image, and accept friendship and
affection from someone regardless of theri looks, and they are
not less scornful of a brutal person no matter their beauty.
They have taken a rational position and they must be commended
for that. In another way, some of them have incorporated their
philosophy into their sexuality, either consciously or
unconsciously. For example, they find someone attractive based
on their ideas, their character, their way of thinking and
personality. One’s physical body becomes esxually arrousing once
they are identified with ideas of justice and goodness. They
have not warded off human sexuality, so they have much more
mindfulness and personal awareness than the puritans. In some
cases, a Freethinker who fell in love with someone for their
ideas, after the berakup, individuals they see resembling their
initial love, even if socially considered unattractive, are
considered attractive by the Freethinker.
So it happens, that the phrase comes to us, “Beauty is in the
eye of the beholder,” and we find that beautiful and ugly are
relative terms, subjective in that they are exsiting only in the
mind. Our natural response to this is that a person cannot
wholly be judged by their physical, since they are conscious.
they are capable of thoughts, ideas, emotions. Thus we find
every Freethinker and independent individual falling in love
with a personality of a person, irregardless of physical appeal.
There is one fact that must be treated, though. An individual
cannot have sex with a personality. As much as the idea is
desired, physical affection cannot be given to a thought, an
idea, or a character. It is necessary that a body is there.
Admiration of an individual and their thoughts is never so pure
or heart-warming as when there is a face for that individual, by
which emotions and even ideas can be expressed. The look of
ease, of a person laying down at the end of a long day, or a
look of interest and intrigue, fascinated by the current
occurrences, or a look of boldness and strength, defending what
we believe in and what we fight for. The analytical expression,
unsatisfied with what we know, delving through thoughts, facts,
memories, to develope a more just theory — the expression of
deep thought, it allows us a a greater admiration of the deep
thought itself. Nothing can greater express sadness than a story
one wished to levie by retelling, accompanied by tears.
This is just the face alone: eyes compliment diw th brows, a
mouth given a tongue, and a nose, the rest covered with skin
enveloping ten thousand muscle strands, all of which can combine
to tell us thoughts and emotions. Anger and aggression, sadness
and solemnness, pleasure and euphoria, exhaustion and rest –
all feelings by which we can purely communicate to another by
the contraction or relaxation of our face muscles. The blessing
of the voice adds to whatever feeling we are comunicating, even
if we are not speaking actual words. In fact, the emotion or
facial expression delivers is dramatically heightened and
empathically understood those vocal sounds which transcend all
human language, particularly when we express a sudden pain, joy,
Then, we are to consider the rest of the body. There are few
words so reassuring, as a gentle, affectionate, and
understanding touch. The idea of love can be written in a
million poems and a thousand essays, which help us understand it
in a reflective manner, but few things are so realistically
understood as love when through the physical act of it; it is so
logical to believe that experience is necessary to knowledge in
this situation, just as it is impossible to know the true nature
of terror without going through war, or other experiences. Lips,
eyelashes, and other facial features, gently caressing,
touching, or nuzzling the intimate or even common parts of the
body: love-making, never so real or pure as can be demonstrated
through experience. Those gentle parts, the neck, the stomach,
the inner arms, find themselves also to be the most intimately
felt. Perhaps it is the nature of evolution: ourselves becoming
most protective of our most vulnerable parts, that they can also
be the most intimate parts, because we feel that we want our
lovers to feel those parts which we are most aware of. The other
parts, the spinal column, the inner fore arms, the hands, though
we are not only protective of them, we regard them during sex as
gentle and intimate.
Understand, though, that up to this point, of the necessity of
a body for physical expression and physcial love, I have said
nothing of beauty, spoken no words on one’s complection as it is
concerned to sex. I have only demonstrated the purity of
expression when physical, when either in body and through the
face. Yet there may be something rather unsettling, or otherwise
seemingly contradictory about these thoughts. Those who have
based their opinion on Freethought and independence, have argued
that the physical complection, of beautiful or ugly, is not
accurately indicative of a person’s inner character. But, on the
other hand, the body allows us the most pure and affectionate
method of expressing our desires.
I suppose that it must be admitted that one’s body and face is
an important part of love and sexuality. Whether we find one’s
body to be beautiful or not, the existence of such a body is
important. But, beauty can even play a positive role in this. A
body may in fact be considered indefferent, perhaps somewhat
ugly or holmely. But, once that body has a personality, an
opinion, an ideal, a character, these things alone may be enough
for us to find them attractive physically. The same can be said
of a body we initially find attractive, but then we hear a
rather unintelligent, thoughtless mind speak, a rather cocky
personality, and an otherwise unattractive character, and we
find them ugly physically. It is not always the case, but it
happens to be true often. Thus, beauty, no matter what it comes
from, a physical complection, is necessary to a meaningful
Before ending this dissertation, there are still some thoughts
on beauty that will not rest in my heart until I have fully
explained them. As I stated before, there are many people who
would find it immature or thoughtless to love or deeply care
about someone just by their physical complection. But, it is
almost a thing of serenity, when a young boy’s passions are
enveloped around just the image of a girl. Granted, he may not
be thoughtful in his quest, but he is listening to his desires.
The thoughts and ideas that are spurning in his mind may be
misguided, but they are gorgeous, wonderful, and even
comforting. Fantasies may be pplayed out where just a kindly
personality is placed in the boy’s fictionaly apparition of her.
He will feel joy when he imagines her impressed with every
aspect of him, and very loving and caring of him. The same can
be said of a girl and her affection for any handsome man.
With this, I end. I can only hope that I have enlightened some

Being a woman is more than having feminine organs, is learning to understand your body at different stages of life and anticipate the small ailments before they become real problems. Your body’s needs when you were a 17-year-old girl cannot be the same as when you are a 57 year old. However, no matter your age, at one time or another, being women, your health and beauty will be affected by one of the following conditions: facial wrinkles, vaginal infection, abnormal menstruation, breast drooping, women infertility, cellulite, stretch marks, spider vein, varicose vein, menopause, Constipation, depression, vitamin deficiency, and the list goes on. In this article, I try to cover many health and beauty tips that can help you become and remain an ideal woman. If you Care About your Health and beauty, this article is Specifically Designed for you.
How to Have Healthy, Beautiful Skin?
Every woman wants to have a radiant skin; unfortunately, most of them don’t figure out the causes of their skin problems. Each day, our body is attacked by pollution, the sun, sweat, stress, abuse of all kinds such as tobacco, alcohol and unhealthy fast foods. To have a healthy, beautiful skin, it is important to reverse the effects of those aggressors by adopting a healthy lifestyle including eating a healthy diet regular exercise, and good sleep.
However, sometimes, all these efforts on a daily basis are not enough. The more we advance in age, the more the body requires small attentions that require a little cosmetic. My advice to you is using safe and natural skin products. Safe and natural products, applied regularly, can help greatly to protect your look from the ravages of time and pollution. I am talking about feminine beauty to please men and make you feel good about yourself. Finding yourself beautiful is essential to live in harmony with yourself and others.
Keep your skin clean and clear. Taking care of yourself is taking care of your skin on a daily basis. Cleaning the skin must be made daily using products that do not alter its natural balance or damage it. The skin is exposed to external aggression. By its peripheral position, the skin is unavoidably attacked by dust, pollution, which mingling to the sebum and sweat disrupt the balance of its surface. You need natural antioxidant cream to repair those damages. Today, unconsciously, people tend to excessive use of gels or anti-aging products that are, most of times, do more harm to the skin. Be aware that those products can increase your skin’s risk of UV damage.
Taking care of your face
Your face is your passport; do not ever neglect it. The skin of your face is constantly assaulted by the environment: temperature too high or too low, wind, pollution, temperature changes. It needs to be protected by the use of an anti-oxidant cream. Protective cream or restorative cream, the choice of your cream depends on your skin type and your needs. Living in cities, cold, working outdoors or in a confined place, your cream facial must also provide a degree of protection that suits your lifestyle. It must also be adapted to the nature of your skin (dry skin, oily skin, mixed skin), the choice of your moisturizer is essential to better protect the skin of your face and allow it to find the right balance.
Femininity of a beautiful neckline
The arms and chest areas are very sensitive and are also a sign of femininity that each of us likes to discover. But often, the years pass, with a few kilos too many, and not enough physical activity, mean that our arms, our breasts are no longer as energetic as before and become a real complex. These areas are very fragile because they do not have true muscle support and are therefore subject to rapid aging, wrinkles, skin falling and flaccid. For, too often, the neck and chest are forgotten in the care of daily hydration. However, they must be washed, hydrated and treated the same way as the face.
To preserve the elasticity of the skin of those areas, it is important to apply every morning a nourishing and moisturizing cream, taking care to apply a light massage that will activate the superficial microcirculation. Apply a special cream by massaging lightly and gently from the center of the breast to cover the entire breast and up to the neck.
Often taboo, the subject of personal hygiene is often not discussed despite the great importance it takes. What are the gestures to comply, products to use, learn all relevant information. Because staying fresh is a daily concern for both well-being and health, intimate hygiene should not be overlooked. Be simple and natural in your vaginal care; any negligence or overuse of chemical can lead to vaginal issues. In a relationship, vaginal odor is a tough problem for both partners. It is embarrassing for the female, and frustrating for the male.
What products to use for personal hygiene?
All products, shower gels, soaps and bubble baths variety are not necessarily suited for intimate hygiene. Often too aggressive, their pH (acidity level) is different from that of our skin and does not respect the natural balance. The acidity of genital mucous makes it possible to ensure the maintenance of vulvo-vaginal flora necessary to preserve the female genitals of fungal infections and diverse.
Hygiene and menstruation
Whether you use tampons or pads, change them regularly, about every 4 hours (except at night where you can keep them until morning). If you use tampons, be sure to choose the model adapted to the flow of your menstruation, which also varies between the beginning and the end of your period. A tampon too big and absorbing, at the end of the cycle, can irritate the vagina and lead the development of a fungus. In the same way, a tampon changed too frequently can be a source of irritation.
Healthy and beautiful legs
Take care of your legs. The legs are one of the female assets, but can also be a source of much inconvenience. Those who have heavy legs, varicose veins or Restless legs syndrome know what I am talking about. If you want to attract men, pay attention to your legs, they say. Most men get turned on by a hot woman’s legs. Men love looking at women’s hot, sexy legs; maybe there is a secret in that.
What could affect the beauty and health of your legs? – High heels, consumption of alcohol and cigarettes and an unbalanced diet are all aggravating factors of poor blood circulation and therefore pain in the legs with obviously appearance of cellulite, stretch marks and small vessels that burst.
Advice to have beautiful and healthy legs – The fundamental solution is regular exercises with more precisely jogging and jumping. The legs acquire, through regular exercises, greater finesse and elasticity. Their muscles develop harmoniously and the entire body usually takes profits with improved blood circulation.
Numerous researchers confirm that a healthy nutrition makes a positive difference in skin rejuvenation. Your beauty has a close relationship with what you eat. You are what you eat, they say. However, even if you eat a healthy diet, you also need to avoid eating late at night. Do your best to eat at least 3 hours before going to bed. Eating late can cause chronic indigestion, which can lead to acne, bad breath, belly fat, eczema, and psoriasis. Adjust your diet to your life (sedentary lifestyle, active, sportive), your condition (pregnant, obese), your age (children, youth, adult, elderly) in order not to create imbalance in your diet. Energy needs vary depending on sex and a multitude of other factors.

Candidates seeking Beauty Industry careers find that Bay Vista Beauty Academy in National City, California offers quality education, diversity, and serenity. Encompassing nearly 6,000 square foot campus, Bay Vista Beauty Academy combines all the working amenities of a high-class Salon and school: a facial room, clinic area, student lunchroom, equipped freshman room, and reception area. According to Patricia Mayhue, Placement Director of Bay Vista Beauty Academy, the school’s facilities are top-notch. “The Academy has three classes — the newest is the Makeup artistry classroom — and students have marble and stone vanities that fold down as desk workstations.” In fact, she believes potential students will be so impressed by the offerings, they should make a visit to the school to help in their decision. “Anytime anyone wants to tour the facility, we are very proud of the way it looks and happy to show it off,” she says.
The cosmetology program at Bay Vista Beauty Academy consists of 1,600 clock hours, which includes the “Pivot Point” curriculum. “By being a Pivot Point member school, we use the very best educational materials, programs, and systems for every facet of the beauty industry,” says Mayhue. Students in this course of study learn hands-on, scientific approaches to hair sculpturing in men and women, Hair Design, long hair design, perm design, and color design. In addition, Bay Vista Beauty Academy was recently approved for Cosmetology 102 course, which combines the cosmetology program with 150 hours in makeup design and makeup artistry.
Bay Vista Beauty Academy’s manicuring program consists of 400 classroom/clinical hours and includes in-depth instruction in artificial nails (acrylic, tips, wraps), manicuring, pedicuring, health, safety, sanitation, and applicable laws. “We’ve recently expanded the nail tech program, which meets all needs of traditional spas,” Mayhue continue. Programming even includes makeup artistry from the Mudd Institute curriculum, she says.
Specialized programs include the Bay Vista Beauty Academy’s Alumni association, which is free to students. “We encourage everyone to sign up as it offers service and retail discounts to graduates, as well as advanced education.” Additionally, the Academy’s artistic director is building a “MAT Team” which is a master artistic team that will work on designing a new fall collection. “Our goal is to display our student’s work on campus.” Also noteworthy is that Bay Vista Beauty Academy’s community ambassadors participate in local programs, where they perform extracurricular functions in shelters, womens’ groups, high schools, and other events. (Community ambassadors are student design teams that have a 90% GPA and attendance record.)
Successful graduates of Bay Vista Beauty Academy are awarded a diploma in their respective studies. And, if career services are needed, Maynue explains that the school is ready to help. “We work diligently to make sure students are pre-applied for [necessary certification] exams and work to help them with resumes, job leads, and salon interaction to make strong relationships so students can expect some great employment options.”
Bay Vista Beauty Academy participates in a variety of financial aid programs and loans, including the Pell grant for those who qualify. Furthermore, Bay Vista Beauty Academy is accredited by the NACASS (National Accrediting Commission of Cosmetology Arts and Sciences) and CAPS (California Accredited Private Postsecondary Schools. “This means that we are very proactive in the industry,” explains Mayhue. “To have affiliation with these [organizations] means you are striving for excellence and want to stand out beyond the norm. It’s definitely something we like to have in cosmetology — to align with individuals that share the same goal; these memberships support that vision of raising the bar in schools.”
Overall, Mayhue emphasizes Bay Vista Beauty Academy’s reputation: “The staff is very dedicated and that adds to the facility. We’re very progressive and we all have the students’ education at heart. It’s the quality of education that makes us different: the design team, community involvement, and soundness of our education. The reputation of this school sells itself.”
