CIDESCO Educators

Every esthetics educator at Cinta Aveda Institute has an immense knowledge of ingredients, skin care, machines and the overall integumentary system. They truly care about their students and are passionate about training us for success.

We also have many educators that are CIDESCO ambassadors. CIDESCO is like grad school for estheticians. It means that you are certified anywhere in the world. It is the system that they use in Europe. It is a very challenging test and encompasses the body, massage, more machines, skin, many advanced techniques and how everything in the body works together.

The fact that our educators are willing to push themselves and make time to study after being at school from 9am-8pm really says something about how much they care. They make you feel at ease about asking any question and make sure that if you’re struggling grasping a concept that you have one on one help in the area that you are struggling with. They teach you advanced techniques as well as explain some real-life situations that one day you may find yourself in. Hearing about their experiences makes it easier to know the do’s and don’ts in the industry.

You can tell that they are all very passionate about what they do and eager to share their knowledge with the students. They are always willing to help with schoolwork and make you feel comfortable in the classroom and on the spa floor.

Discovering Aveda

It was all an accident, how I found Aveda.  I originally was looking for a specific product with another company to help my severely damaged hair. I was shopping in Santana Row and had walked into 3 salons and Aveda was the last.  I did not know anything about Aveda and was about to walk out, because they did not sell the product I wanted.  A sales associate approached me and asked what it was I wanted to achieve and I am grateful she did!

I explained to her how I bleached/lightened my hair 4 times in 1 week, going from black to platinum blonde.  My hair was fried, frizzy and definitely dry.  She introduced the Smooth Infusion line to me and I purchased the serum, shampoo, conditioner and prep product.  Before I purchased each item I went into the bathroom and quickly read the reviews online to ensure it was going to work. It is a must to research any product I purchase before I add it to my daily beauty regime. There were over a 1,000 ratings for the products rating it close to perfect.

I was more than satisfied with the results. My hair was amazingly soft and shiny. It was then I realized how great Aveda must be. I had tried many other well known brands, but nothing compared to Aveda.

I can say I was no longer embarrassed to walk around because of my hair being severely damaged.

This was the first great experience I had with Aveda before I even knew I wanted to attend the Cinta Aveda Institute.
