Working on a guest at the Student Salon!

My experience at Cinta Aveda Institute has been an amazing journey. I chose Cinta Aveda because it had been recommended by friends and other stylists in the city as one of the best beauty schools in the city. I am thrilled because indeed I received an excellent education. I do not have a single complaint. The people working at Cinta Aveda are very friendly and helpful which creates a great learning environment.

Learning about makeup with Stephanie

As students, we are lucky to have such talented educators. One of my favorite educators is my beta instructor Stephanie. She is a wonderful mentor and a very inspiring talented stylist. Stephanie shared her experience and accomplishments in the beauty industry with her students which was very inspiring to me and my fellow students at the school.

I also love the products that we work with. I had never used Aveda products before I attended the institute, but they are amazing. I fell in love with the products and now I only use Aveda hair and skin products myself.

In class

I really love the environment, where everyone treats each other with respect and in a professional manner. I am grateful that I chose Cinta Aveda not only because we have amazing educators but also because of the structure of the school. I think it’s really important to have a great educational structure.

When I first started beauty school I thought it would be like the movie Mean Girls but my experience here is totally different. I met great people who I see myself being friends with for a very long time and who I look forward to work with in the business. My classmates are wonderful and have grown to me like family.

A Fashion Show for Creative Team

Cinta Aveda really prepared their students to be the best of the best. Coming from Cinta Aveda we learned great cutting and coloring techniques. I am sure that everyone who graduates Cinta Aveda is going to be ready and prepared for the real world because of the high standards of the school. Another thing that I enjoyed about Cinta Aveda is being able to participate in Creative Team. I think it’s a great experience for all students to experience working in photo shoots and fashion shows and other creative aspects of the industry.

I am very pleased that I chose Cinta Aveda and thankful that I met these great people this past year. I can’t wait to see everyone grow professionally and become successful.

Antoinette Beenders is Aveda’s creative director. She has been for years and continues to grow the Aveda name with her strong belief in education and perfection. She was premiered in the latest issue of Behind The Chair on paper. For those of you who aren’t aware of this magazine, it’s a must-have if you are in the beauty industry.

There is an intimate article about her start in life as a hair dresser, emphasizing that her journey was not easy and it took determination and hard work to get where she is today. She never accepted ‘no,’ and never accepted anything less than perfect. As a young Dutch woman she moved to London without knowing how to speak English. Not really having a plan other than to surround herself with successful people, she achieved her goal and worked with industry leaders. Later, becoming a platform artist and accepting a position from the owner of Aveda.

Her decision to accept this job from Aveda didn’t come easy, but she was ready to make a name for herself and be a part of world that she was less familiar with. This article was inspirational for me as a student at Cinta Aveda institute. I take pride in knowing that Ms. Beenders worked so hard to get where she is now, she’s a perfectionist, and created an Aveda curriculum that ensures haircuts to be articulate and mindful.

I connected with her, because there was a point in her career where she didn’t get to spend any time with her husband. She decided that life’s too short to not spend it with the people you love, so her husband goes everywhere she does so they can spend as much time as possible together even on business trips. I admire this thoughtfulness, because it is difficult to spend time with the people I love, and I haven’t even graduated school yet. Her success is inspiring and I’m proud to be a part of the Aveda family.
