Barbizon of Akron Shares Skincare Tips for Getting That Models Glow!


Throughout these colder months we ALL experience changes in our skin. Make sure you are stocking up on moisturizer (for your skin type), ALWAYS use sunscreen (yes, even in the fall/winter), and GIRLS make sure you are aware of the changes in your skin tone. Your undertone changes as the seasons change and you need to apply the colors that compliment your features and skin tone the best! So as the seasons change be sure to select your cosmetic products according to what is recommended for your skin type AND tone. Before you buy, make sure you take time to read the labels, most products are labeled with the information on what skin type they are best suited for.

And remember… When caring for your face always use gentle motions smoothing upward and outward, drink plenty of water to rid your skin of toxins, and know your skin type before purchasing any products/cosmetics:

Normal: Has no shine and clear tone. Soft and supple, but not greasy.
Oily: Very shiny with visibly enlarged pores.
Dry: No shine. Has flaky or dry patches. Thin skin tone.
Combination: Oily in the T-zone area. Normal to dry in other areas.
Sensitive: Has acne flare-ups when using cosmetic products.

Take care of your skin,
and get that healthy GLOW for months to come!

Barbizon of Akron's tips for Thrift store shopping

We hear the same story from our Barbizon Of Akron graduates all the ultimate thrift store fail… have you ever purchased an amazing outfit from the “$1.00 a pound pile”, and less than 5 minutes later you discover a little hole at the bottom of it…YIKES!

Follow these five simple steps and you, along with all of our Barbizon Of Akron alumi, can rest assured your next thrift store find isn’t damaged goods in disguise.

1. Examine ALL goods - look at each piece, up & down and front to back.
2. Turn inside out - check the lining and inside of the pockets too.
3. Check the hardware - play with a couple pieces to see if they easily fall off.
4. Get up close & personal - scratch and sniff…If the piece is a bit dirty or smelly, chances are that old grime is there to stay and won’t wash out.
5. Looking for something vintage? Look for a union tag that is usually attached to the inside seam. A union tag is proof that the piece was produced and supported by a clothing union, which existed in the US before the boom of clothing production beginning in the 1980’s.

Now if you skip a step here or there and wind-up purchasing a piece that you didn’t look over closely, don’t jump the gun and throw that garment in the trash – there may be hope for a great outfit yet! Log onto and check out how one girl took on the challenge of turning a $1.00 assortment into treasures with a little creativity.

One woman’s unwanted garment becomes another one’s wardrobe.... Happy Shopping!

Barbizon of Akron Graduate Receives More Money For Work Done In 2009

Lutheran Hospital, in Cleveland, got such a great response from a commercial that Barbizon of Akron graduate, Madeline Clenedin, who is now listed with Pro-Model & Talent Management did back in August of 2009, that they are going to be re-using the spot again this year!

Models and Talent love when a client calls to re-use a commercial that has been previously shot, as that means the model/talent gets paid again for work already done; they just sit back and collect the check!!
