We all know that 2020 wasn’t the year we expected it to be. With everything that happened, you may have even decided to put off going after a career you feel passionate about. Not anymore! As we enter 2021, this new year could be the perfect opportunity for a fresh start and we want to help you get there.! Put those New Year’s resolutions to work and focus on your future education. At Avalon School of Cosmetology, we are proud to offer a wide variety of programs and advanced classes. Apply today and see if Avalon might be the right fit for you!
If you’re interested in the beauty industry, there are a lot of options! Consider each program, what your passions are, and how long you’d like to be in school. Every program has a different number of required hours and techniques. Depending on the location, we offer programs in:
- Eyelash Extensions
- Makeup Artistry
- Advanced Beauty
- Beauty School Instructor
Once you’ve figured out which programs you’re interested in, contact your closest Avalon location and schedule a tour! Check out “Top 5 Questions to Ask on a Tour” so you can feel prepared to get the information you need. Make sure to bring something to take notes on, and even bring a friend or family member! We know it can be a lot of information at once, and a friend can help you stay on track.
Worried about starting a new education and career path after all the uncertainty of 2020? Unlike other higher-level education options, our beauty school programs have fewer hours and can all be completed in as little as under one year! How quickly you graduate will depend on your schedule and if you choose from our part-time or full-time classes. In no time, you can be a licensed professional and be making a name for yourself in the industry. Contact us to learn more about our flexible scheduling and we’d love to help you figure out which one is right for you!
Something that makes us unique is our Advanced Beauty classes. Depending on the class, these two-week courses can be taken at the same time as our cosmetology or esthetics program, or independently. Currently available in our Advanced Beauty classes are:
As beauty trends grow and transform, these two-week courses can help you stay up to date on the latest trends! New careers are constantly being created in the beauty industry, and building on a cosmetology or esthetics foundation could help give you a competitive edge in a future career.
Especially in 2020 with everyone practicing social distancing, clients realized how much they rely on beauty professionals and their industry knowledge. That’s why these advanced beauty classes could help you become even more irreplaceable in the industry by going more in-depth with your education and learning other valuable skills!
Let’s be realistic! In any career, knowing how to market yourself and your work is half the job. This is why we offer our students an education by Prosper U. We want our students to be familiar and confident with networking, sales, customer services, and other important business skills. The Prosper U curriculum is designed to help you with marketing both in and outside of the beauty industry, so our students can use these skills in multiple facets of their lives.
Where could business skills take you after school? Brittany Del Toro, an esthetics graduate of our Mesa campus, became a co-founder of the SCIN Seminar. The SCIN Seminar is an organization that helps those in the beauty industry to build their social media presence and gain clientele. Social media is a valuable resource to market yourself, so it’s important to learn how to streamline your feed and build high engagement levels to attract new clientele!
We know that 2020 has been hard on everyone, which is why we want to help our students as much as we can.

Each year, we create a student look book to showcase some of our best student work.
