Makeup News: Roll Me In Fairydust & Call Me A Unicorn!






When Unicorn Lashes originally came out with unicorn-inspired makeup brushes earlier this year, beauty junkies everywhere collectively shed glittery tears of joy. And now, the magical tools will soon come in your favorite metallic finish — rose gold.

It comes as no surprise that two huge beauty trends are joining forces in the most magical way. Unicorns have been at the forefront of beauty trends this year inspiring everything from tattoos torainbow highlighters, while women have been flocking to their salons to try the rose gold hair color trend.

Unicorn Lashes’ original set of vegan Unicorn Brushes sold out twice this September in just 12 hours, so expect the rose gold set (available in 2017) to be hard to get your hands on.

The photos released of the new set feature bristles with deep red tips to match the rosy shade of the handles. It’s important to note that this might not be the final design of the rose gold collection. Mel Blue, the founder of Unicorn Lashes, revealed in an interview with Allure that she’s considering other designs including a combination of gray and pink bristles. If you can’t wait until 2017 to get some unicorn brushes, Unicorn Lashes will restock the original rainbow-bristled set in December.

In 2011, she started her own paper decor company, Studio Mucci, thus earning her the nickname “The Tassel Fairy.” When she’s not spreading magic through her crafts, she uses her YouTube channel to inspire other women to be confident and, of course, “to live colorfully.”

Barbering has become such a huge phenomenon in the hair industry. The extensive hype that this hair art form is getting on social media is just amazing. The barbershop has been known for a place where men come in once a week to get a fade, talk sports and chill with the boys. Yet the amazing artistry and culture of the “Barber” has spread like wild fire and people in the hair industry and Cosmetology/Beauty Schools are taking notice.

The Salon Professional Academy is the first leading edge Cosmetology/Beauty school in the Silicon Valley to offer Barbering.

Ms. V, Director of Education says, “This is such an exciting industry, and our students are on trend telling us what they want next. So it was only fitting Barbering would be the next step. I’ll never forget in our first year we had a student named Louis, and he had the most amazing Barbering skills, he would have a line in the back of the school for clients. I knew then Barbering was going to be big. Now Louis works at Aveda Atelier and is heading up to their newest Barbering salon, so even salons are taking notice of this trend in the hair industry. We are just so excited to get to launch this new and exciting program at TSPA!”

Barbering is a 1500 hour program and if you already have your Cosmetology license you can do a Cross Over Program for 200 hours. Both programs launch in the Fall 2016 and enrollments are filling up. For more information text or call 408-784-4463.
