Back to school season is upon us which means it’s a great time to start thinking about your goals and potential future. Many people choose beauty school because of the endless opportunities it can provide them with. Others simply want to try something new. Whether you’re fresh out of high school or are in need of a career change, the next step to starting your beauty journey is to enroll in a beauty school. Between flexible career opportunities and creative environments, there are multiple reasons to start beauty school this back-to-school season.

Let’s dive into some of the reasons why you should start beauty school this upcoming year!

Pursue Your Passions

Typically, beauty schools offer a variety of programs for you to choose from, depending on your goals, talents, and interests. Here at Aveda Institutes in Idaho, we offer programs in cosmetology, esthetics, barbering, and nail technology. 

In our cosmetology program, you can learn skills like haircutting, styling, and coloring techniques. And in our nail technology program, you can learn all about nail care. Our programs are designed to help students:

  • Receive an education at an affordable price
  • Graduate and sit for a licensing exam
  • Pursue a future you are passionate about

We are passionate about helping our students do what they love and work hard to provide the tools they need to help them succeed. Many beauty professionals chose this industry because of the passion they had for all things beauty. Why not pursue something you’re passionate about?

Endless Opportunities

Pursuing a future in the beauty industry may allow you the freedom to work when you want and as much as you want depending on the type of salon, spa, or other facilities you work in. There are many types of careers you can pursue– including becoming a freelancer or entrepreneur. The beauty industry has so many fields to choose from, the opportunities are wide open. 

Because of this freedom, beauty professionals can start to build their own businesses. Even if you are working in a salon or spa that you don’t own, there may still be flexibility in terms of scheduling. You can set your own availability around client appointments or even create your own schedule!

There’s Always Something New Around the Corner

Odds are you already have a thirst for knowledge and want to learn more. Lucky for you, the beauty industry is ever-changing. Meaning that even after you receive your license, the learning doesn’t end!

Beauty is always changing and styles are constantly being updated. As a beauty professional, you’ll start to see trends come and go. When this happens you’ll have to improve your skills and always be looking out for new opportunities. 

If you choose a future in the beauty industry, rarely will you find yourself doing the exact same thing day in and day out. Different hairstyles and trends will be required of you and you will most likely be meeting new people frequently!

Gain Hands-On Experience

Unlike many other types of educational programs, you’ll have the chance to practice what you’ve learned in real life at a beauty school. Here at Aveda Institutes in Idaho, we want to help our students to feel confident in the latest trends and techniques. You’ll have the chance to practice what you’ve learned on real clients in our student salon*. This is to help you feel prepared to take on the industry after graduation!

Express Yourself

One of the main reasons many people pursue the beauty industry is the chance for them to express themselves creatively. From trendy hairstyles to colorful nails, the creativity seems to never stop!

Not only will you get to show off your creative side, but you’ll also get to work around other creative people. You’ll get to work with instructors who are excited to see your growth and fellow students who have the same inspirations and interests as you

Why Aveda?
