06 Apr Why We Wear Black
Yes, we wear black. Here at the Institute of Beauty and Wellness, we are focused on creating timeless beauty looks for our students, guests, and instructors. We do this by incorporating a unison dress code with the ability for individuality to shine through. After all, beauty is all about expressing one’s originality.
WHY DO WE WEAR BLACK IN THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY?
The short explanation: it’s simple. We go beyond basics, though. Not only is it a seamless look for everyone; it is also buildable, expressive, and stylish. The beauty industry is all about trends, and we are the trendsetters. An all-black wardrobe allows us to stay fashion-forward while paving the way for what’s next.
BLACK IS ALWAYS IN
In the beauty industry, black never goes out of style. Whether you’re going to school or working in a salon, all year round black is an easy transition when the dress code is routine. With most clothing brands incorporating black into their collections year-round; it is easy to shop cute and trendy options at any time. Get your basics down, and let your personality shine through your makeup, accessories, and hair!
Black looks good with any color. It will go well with any piece of accessory, shade of makeup, hair color, nail polish – everything looks good with black.
Creative professionals love being able to spice up their everyday looks. With a neutral color like black, every individual can bring their own sense of style using hair clips, beautiful bangles, and even a chic belt. Your creativity is up to you.
IT’S ALL ABOUT THE CLIENT
As a stylist, an all-black wardrobe allows you to take a step back from the spotlight and allow the guests to really see their transformation. As you are doing their hair or makeup our black attire allows them to focus on their new look. It is always good for the guest to see themselves in the best light, and by wearing a simple black color tone, you allow them to be the center of attention.

STAINS ARE AFRAID OF BLACK
Black is also the best option for beauty industry attire in case you happen to get anything on your clothing. We’ve been there, hair color rubs on your top or a dollop of the exfoliating mask drops on your pants. Thankfully black tends to hide stains very well, so it’s great for students who are learning.
Should anything happen, we have tips and tricks to save your clothing. When in a pinch, we always have permanent markers on hand. Yes, a permanent marker! It works wonders to mask any stain. You might be used to having a Tide Pen on hand to remove stains, but with black as your staple wardrobe color, markers will become just as valuable!
WHY THE INSTITUTE OF BEAUTY & WELLNESS WEARS BLACK
It looks professional. A black attire is sleek and professional in any industry. Our team always get compliments on how professional our students look, so it sets our students up for that expectation while they are in school. Most salons do have some sort of a dress code, so it is also a best practice to start with a dress code as a regular routine.
