Why Should I Choose Avalon Institute?
If you have a passion for beauty, you’ve probably been looking at attending beauty schools in your area! This is a big decision and there are so many options to choose from! We can’t tell you which school to choose, but we can tell you why you should choose Avalon Institute!
Our School Has Been Around for Over 50 Years!
Our school was founded in 1967 in Mesa, Arizona. This means that we’ve been preparing students for a future in beauty for more than 50 years! Through our years of professional training, we’ve built great partnerships with brands like Dermologica and MAC Cosmetics.
The beauty industry changes fast! Working with brands such as these ensures that we get up-to-date high end products. We follow the latest trends and technologies in the beauty world, which can provide a real-world environment for our students.
We Prioritize Safety!
Sanitation is a crucial part of the beauty industry, as it helps to maintain hygiene and prevent the spread of infections. We require our students to clean their stations and wash their hands in between clients. We show our students how to properly clean their tools and use disposable gloves.
Provide Services to Actual Clients
Our students have the unique opportunity to provide beauty services to real clients through our student salon*. Our students first learn skills and techniques in the classroom and practice on mannequins. Once we know our students have received proper training, they get to work in our student salon with the supervision of a licensed professional.
*All services provided by students under the supervision of licensed professionals.
