5 Questions To Ask on Your Beauty School Tour

The beauty industry is full of new and existing opportunities. You can be creative, hard working, and do a job that you love all while getting paid! One of the first steps for your beauty school education is deciding where you want to attend school. Have a few options but can’t decide? Try booking a tour and get a feel for the atmosphere and set up. Here are 7 questions you may want to ask while on your tour.

1. What Sets This Beauty School and Program Apart from Others?

Each school may have something different about them. But what really sets them apart? Asking an open-ended question like this could help you learn something you might not have realized during your initial research. Some schools work with special guest teachers, others give back to their community.

Here at Aveda Institute Idaho, our owner, Nate is heavily involved in our programs in order to ensure that quality teaching is taking place. Keeping up with the latest hair trends and styles as well as teaching the basics for needed techniques is what we love to do.

We are also proud to represent our product with ingredients that are just as good for the environment as they are for your hair.

2. How Long Are the Programs?

Each program may vary depending on which aspect of beauty school you want to pursue. Knowing the length of your potential program can help you plan out what you may need to do during school and how much time and energy you need to invest. This can also help you learn about the full-time and part-time scheduling that may be offered.

3. What Type of Learning Can I Expect?

Different schools can offer different programs. Asking about the curriculum can help you understand what kind of cool activities you can participate in and what skills you may learn and grow.

Aveda Idaho offers practical training so you can gain the necessary skills and experience to go out into the real world and find a potential career. After learning about a variety of beauty skills, students at our school have the opportunity to practice what they’ve learned on real guests! All of these services are provided under the direct supervision of licensed instructors so students can receive real-time advice on their technique.

4. Are There Any Financial Aid Options?

Don’t let financial roadblocks stand in the way of you pursuing your dream career! As you learn more about tuition costs during your tour, make sure that you also ask about any financial aid options available to students who qualify. This is a great chance to learn about your specific payments plans by figuring out which options could be available to you!

At Aveda Institute Idaho, we want to help our students with our education in any way we can and that includes offering financial support. Whether you want to research more about federal financial aid or our scholarship options, our admissions team is ready to help you learn more!

5. Do You Help Students Find Jobs After School?

It’s important that the school you apply to is committed to not only help you through your education but also after graduation!

One of the best parts about attending an Aveda school is the incredible closeness of our community. This extends beyond just our school’s family to the large Aveda network. These aveda salons and spas throughout the world are looking for students who know Aveda’s techniques and values. That means that our graduates can have a world of possibilities waiting for them and we’re dedicated to helping them get there!
