Educators and Mentors

Chalkboard with the word Mentor written on it.At the Cinta Aveda Institute, I’ve had the privilege to get to know and bond with my educators.

Every single one of them has made my experience here one to remember. They make me laugh constantly and always show me what a community should look like.

Being so comfortable with my educators has made it an experience of ease and warmth. I’m not afraid to ask them questions, or express any type of concern, because they come back to me with honesty and the uttermost care towards my concern. That was one thing I felt deeply when I came to this school; I never felt shame or embarrassment when I asked a question, even if i knew it might be nonsensical.

Educators at the Cinta Aveda Institute are mentors in this industry, constantly displaying different approaches to skin care and technical matters. I’ve learned from them that the skin care industry is neither black nor white—there are many shades of gray and variations on how to do things. Each has their own techniques or opinions about certain products or treatments.

I’m excited to see what they have in store to teach me. Each of them has their own distinct characteristics that make enliven every class. I’m very grateful for these wonderful people who have enriched my journey here. I only hope to carry forward these many attributes to upcoming estheticians.

One thing I have taken from them is to approach skin with different alternatives. Every client has multiple options available to them; and, with the many mentors I’ve had, I can properly advise them.
