ROLFS Salon has built a relationship with Avalon School of Cosmetology by getting involved with the job fairs and forming relationships with the staff and students. ROLFS looks for employees with great people skills, that are professional and can anticipate a clients needs, but also has business skills.
We recently visited ROLFS to talk with graduates and learn how Avalon helped them prepare for their careers.

There are four locations in the USA, two in the Phoenix area. To learn more about our school or schedule a tour contact us today at 877-297-2118 or visit us online

I really liked Avalon because it is where I got my foundation for everything. Right now I work at Rolfs Salon as a color specialist. Avalon helped me to learn my passion for color and everything that I know now, it all started at Avalon.
We had great instructors that really cared. I loved what they taught me. There’s not one teacher that wouldn’t try to help me learn if I had a question.
Serena: I really liked going to Avalon. I feel like they really helped me prepare for a State Board. The day I went to take my test, I felt pretty confident about it. They also helped by getting a job. I work at Rolfs as well. They always had a lot of career fairs going on. Joyce helped do my resumé, which was really awesome, because I’d never done a resumé before.
