Kicking Off the Summer with Beauty

Summer is the perfect time to try new things and pursue our dreams, whatever they may be. Many people choose to enter the beauty industry because of the wide range of possibilities it can provide. Whether you’ve just graduated from high school or have been looking to do something you truly enjoy, going to beauty school is the first step to take if you want to break into the beauty industry.

There’s no better time to start beauty school than now, and here’s why!

Do Something You’re Passionate About

The beauty industry is full of passionate and creative people. The opportunities of what you can pursue are truly endless, which is why it’s so easy to pick something you love. At Avalon Institute, we offer programs in cosmetology, esthetics, massage therapy and more!

In a cosmetology program, you can learn many procedures, including fundamental techniques for haircutting, styling, coloring, and treatments. An esthetician program is more focused on skincare treatments, such as facials, hair removal, makeup design, and skincare therapies. Massage therapy relieves stress and tension from clients by applying pressure to various muscles in the body.

These courses also include health and safety training which covers state laws and regulations for sanitation and health considerations. Cosmetologists and estheticians also learn about anatomy and physiology, along with bacteriology, chemistry, and sanitation training.

That is the amazing thing about cosmetology school! You have the opportunity to pursue whatever program interests you the most, and no matter what you pick you are able to learn more about those topics in a hands-on way.

Learn Valuable Skills for a Successful Future

To receive state accreditation, cosmetology schools must follow approved curriculums so their students learn all of the necessary skills and information needed to earn their state license. At Avalon Institute, all of our programs cover a wide range of topics and skills. 

Our curriculum can prepare you for taking a state board exam in your program of choice, but also provide you with business and economic foundations that can make you successful in almost every aspect of the beauty industry. Depending on your program of choice, you can learn a number of skills. Some of them are: 

  • Hair design
  • Skincare
  • Makeup application
  • Massages
  • Business strategy
  • And more!cutting the end of hair off

These skills can help you build a successful future in the beauty industry, and the more you learn, the more opportunities are open to you. In addition to our standard programs, we offer two week, advanced beauty classes in makeup artistry, eyelash extensions, and hair extensions to further your education.

Gain Hands-On Experience Before Entering Your Field

Unlike other educational institutions, beauty school can give you the chance to practice your skills on real world clients before you enter the industry. The Avalon Institute facilities are designed to help you get a feel for what it’s actually like to work in the beauty industry, and career assistance to help you achieve your dreams of becoming a licensed professional.

Our student salon offers our students the opportunity to practice what they learn, give our clients an affordable service, and provide feedback to our students. All services are performed by students under the constant and careful supervision of licensed instructors.

Enrolling this Summer is Easier than You Think

If attending beauty school is a dream of yours, there is no better time to turn that dream into a reality. Enrolling in beauty school now is easier than ever.

The first step is to find an accredited beauty school that fits you. Research multiple schools, and schedule campus tours to really get a feel for what you want. At Avalon Institute, we have 5 locations so you can find one that works best for you. We recommend contacting your closest school to request more information.

Next, you should get in touch with our financial aid* department to see if you qualify for any tuition assistance programs, such as federal grants or scholarships. Our financial aid team can help you with this process!

Then, you’ll need to submit your application along with some supporting documents. This includes identification paperwork (social security card, ID, etc.), high school or AA transcript, and the application fee.hair students with mannequins

Once your application is processed and approved, you can schedule your first day of classes and get started on your way towards your future!

Start Your Future Sooner

Not only is the application process shorter than traditional educational routes, beauty school is also, typically, much shorter. Beauty school can take anywhere from 5 months to 2 years to complete depending on your area and program. This is much shorter compared to the traditional 4 year university.

Once you finish beauty school, you must pass your state’s required exams, but then you’re ready to enter the industry! Other paths can often require years of schooling and applying for jobs. Your time is now! With classes starting regularly at Avalon Institute, you could be studying beauty sooner than you think.
