Entering the workplace with an advanced education certificate has the potential to increase your earnings as a stylist. Additionally, more specialized learning can make you eligible for more senior roles at an earlier stage in your hair styling career both within the industry, and in salon settings.
Lead stylists and industry innovators understand the importance of constantly pushing themselves to be at their personal and professional best and you should too. The ever-evolving world of hair styling can be highly demanding of new and experienced stylists alike so giving yourself plenty of opportunities to build confidence in your technical abilities can lend you an edge over the competition.
Yes, these words may seem a bit harsh at first glance, but they’re also true. And what holds true is that even if you are a certified stylist, maybe you aren’t the stylist you’ve always aspired to be. Advanced learning can help fast track you to developing your skill set, build network connections and augment your client base before you’ve even entered the workplace.
With smaller class sizes that are specialized to your area of interest, the Aveda Academy allows you to have more one-on-one time with your educators who will help you to refine your craft. Honing your skills in this nurturing environment allows Academy students to flourish under the guidance of their industry-leading mentors.
While a diploma from the Institute sets you up with a firm foundation upon which to grow your skills, students at this level are more concerned with the “how” of providing exceptional guest services. Advanced learning from the Academy challenges students to consider “why”- why use one technique over another, suggest a cut or colour alternative, or recommend a certain product. Asking why we do anything is essential to feeling confident in the choices we make every day and the Academy encourages your development as an independent thinker and self-assured stylist.
