Colorful Cheetah

Recently, International Institute of Cosmetology, cosmetology students had fun creating a colorful cheetah print design. How’s this for color inspo!

Here are some questions we asked and we thought we’d pass them on…

🌿How did you design the pattern?

I looked up many wallpaper cheetah prints then created my own by drawing in my notes.

🌿How did you create the design in hair?

I used paint brushes from the dollar store dipping and painting like I would a canvas. Using a figure 8 motion to get into the hair fully saturating in each spot. 

🌿Any tips for taking pictures?

I always use portrait mode when taking pictures. Pictures usually come out better taken in shaded areas. Spots with direct sun usually don’t do the picture any justice.
