Are you ready to do something big with your life? At Avalon Institute, we want to help you elevate your education, elevate your life, and ultimately elevate your career. Our goal is to support students every step of the way, and we know there are many factors that can hold you back.
If you want to go to beauty school but aren’t sure if it’s possible for you, here are ways you can start doing what you love!
Elevate Your Passion
If you are passionate about beauty, there may be something for you at Avalon Institute! The first step is to think about which program is right for you. Each program can provide a very different experience and may suit your needs better based on your interests and career goals.
Do you love working with people and consider yourself to have a bubbly personality? Our cosmetology program could be a good fit for you. If you’re more down-to-earth and passionate about skincare, creating a relaxing experience for your guests in a spa as an esthetician may be the right choice.
But, if you’re still on the fence, there are a few more programs to choose from, including our newest program, massage therapy, offered at our Phoenix and Las Vegas locations. It’s possible to find a career in something you’re passionate about at Avalon Institute!
Elevate Your Career
Is being a beauty professional as a licensed cosmetologist or licensed esthetician worth it? If you’re looking to find your dream career or make the change to a new career, you should add “beauty professional” to your list of options.
The value of an amazing hairstylist or skincare professional is not to be underestimated. Think about the last time you went to the salon and the feeling of having a hairstyle you loved. It’s empowering to be confident with your new look, and if you want to provide that feeling to others, it may be time to make that change and enroll in beauty school.
In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook for skincare specialists (estheticians) is expected to grow 17%, which is much faster than average. You can be confident there can be a perfect career fit for you, if you decide to try and make that change!
While we cannot guarantee employment after graduation at Avalon Institute, we strive to prepare each of our students to be able to find a career, as we include mock interviews, resume prep, and how to build a portfolio in our curriculum. And, we always have the latest job listings at our school to show students where they can start applying their skills.
Elevate Your Education
We know there are a lot of questions that come with finding the right beauty school and how you learn best. No matter where you are in life, it’s possible to pursue an education in beauty or wellness! But, when looking for the right beauty school, you have to find one that’s going to provide you the support you need to succeed.
Some potential factors you may want to consider in the right school are:
- Where is the school located?
- Are the programs accredited?
- What is the culture of the school like?
- What class schedules are available?
- How does the school help students find careers?
As a first step, make sure to schedule a tour of the school and see for yourself what an education at Avalon Institute is like. During the tour, you can learn more about what a day in the life of a beauty school student looks like, meet the instructors, and get a feel for the culture of the school to make sure you feel like you’ll fit in.
But, before you come in for your tour, you should also consider doing your research to see if the school offers what you need before seeing the school.
Here are a few things that Avalon Institute offers to help you elevate your education in beauty:
Choose From a Variety of Payment Options
Don’t let anything hold you back from beauty school, especially the cost. There are a variety of ways to pay for beauty school, ranging from federal financial aid to scholarships. At Avalon Institute, financial aid is available to those who qualify.
Consider filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) to see what you may qualify for, and some options, like the Pell Grant, don’t have to be paid back. You may also look into loans or payment plans to make it easier to add beauty school payments to your budget.
Plus, there are many scholarships available to only beauty school students you can apply for, too! There are definitely options that make beauty school affordable.
Get Real Experience While in School
One of the biggest factors of choosing a beauty school should be whether or not you can start applying what you’ve learned while you’re in school. After all, you need to be able to gain the experience you need to build your portfolio and showcase to potential employers that you have the skills they are looking for.
Students at Avalon Institute do get the opportunity to provide services to guests in the student salon and spa. And, they can get the support they need, as all services provided by students are performed under the supervision of licensed professionals.

Choose Class-Time That Fits Your Schedule
We know beauty school is a big time commitment, but we make it possible to balance beauty school and life. You can choose between full-time and part-time schedules for most of our programs.
Choosing our full-time schedules means it’s possible to complete your education sooner, while part-time programs may take longer but make it a little bit easier to balance your education and life. If you plan to work part-time during school or need to take care of your family, you may need to find a school that offers multiple schedules so you can find something that you can commit to.
