Everything You Need to Know about a Future in Beauty

Are you thinking of a future in beauty?

Pursuing a future in beauty or cosmetology is a great aspiration. There are numerous options in the beauty industry for you to choose from, giving you the freedom to do what you love. No matter which beauty direction you decide to take, you are going to want an education that will help you reach your dreams.

At Aveda Institutes Boise and Twin Falls we are committed to helping our students reach those dreams.

Is Beauty School Right for Me?

Cosmetology School vs. Traditional School

It’s common to wonder if traditional school is your next step. It may seem like the obvious choice, but that doesn’t mean it’s right for you. Going to beauty school can allow you to focus on specific techniques you want to learn, and get started on your future much sooner than traditional school.

Why Aveda?

If a future in beauty is what you’ve decided to pursue, it’s time to find the right school for you. Aveda is a great choice! Our students learn the latest trends and techniques from instructors who are at the top of their beauty game. 

At Aveda Institute Boise and Aveda Institute Twin Falls we also offer financial aid* to our cosmetology, barbering and esthetics students who qualify to make chasing your dreams more attainable. FAFSA is one possible option for you to choose from.

How to Succeed

Now that you’ve made your decision, you are ready to go! But there are a few things you should be aware of before you start. If you choose to enroll at Aveda Institute, we would love to help you! Beauty school takes a lot of work and a lot of dedication to build the future you want. But with the right program and supportive teachers behind you, you can do it! There are many ways to succeed when it comes to cosmetology school, so find your own rhythm and enjoy it!

What Programs Do We Offer?

At Aveda Institute Boise and Aveda Institute Twin Falls, we are proud to offer many programs for our students to choose from. We provide cosmetology, esthetics, barbering, and nail technician programs  to our students at both locations, as well as an instructor course for those who want to further their beauty journey. These programs are infused with the Aveda Philosophy and products that are often sought after in today’s earth-conscious society.

You may be wondering about the differences between each program and what they have to  offer. We have many resources and blogs for you to discover what program is perfect for you. 

Cosmetology is a broad field of study that covers more than one aspect of beauty like hair, nails, and skin. Estheticians focus on the science of skincare more in depth than cosmetologists. Nail technicians are able to express themselves through art and showcase their talent through nail care like manicures and pedicures. If you choose to become a barber, know that they can often be sociable people.

What Are Some Specific Idaho Requirements?

Each state has different rules to getting a cosmetology license. If you are located in Idaho and are ready to begin your beauty school adventure or if you have already begun and are considering a change, there are a few things you need to know.
