As a stylist, one of the most important things besides having your own creative imagination, is to stay on top of current trends. Attending hair and fashion shows is one great way. Attending instructional classes and observing how to videos is another.
One thing for certain, trends repeat themselves – so no matter how old a hairstyle may seem, IT WILL eventually resurface. It's only to your advantage to learn all the basics to prepare yourself ahead of time to create your best and most impressive when the time comes.
