How I Knew I Made The Right Choice By Coming To Cinta Aveda

Tate behind-the-scenes at the Bay Fashion Magazine CHLS 2013 Fashion Show (Creative Team event)! She also did makeup for the Marc Jacobs models at the show.

I always knew I wanted to attend a brand name school, so it was either Aveda or Paul Mitchell.

After finding out about the schedule, and having a great impression given to me by Jaqueline (a student), I knew it
was the school for me. This choice has only been reinforced since actually attending school. Here are
some reasons why:

1. The educators-

Every educator at CAI has not only been personable, but knowledgeable as

well. This industry is unique in that you can’t really be a part of it if you don’t like people,
so obviously the educators have great personalities. What really impresses me about them
is their level of knowledge and experience. There are makeup artists who have worked for
major brands, estheticians who have won awards for their talents, and massage therapists
that have traveled the world honing their skills. They are all so eager to impart their
knowledge onto us, rather than feeling competitive with a new crop and they have some
seriously invaluable wisdom.

2. The brand-

Is there any brand bigger? The answer is no, and if you don’t know that yet,
come here and you will. Not only are they environmentally aware, they walk that fine line
between environmentally conscious and high fashion. All their products are made with
100% certified organic plant ingredients and they did the most runway shows at New York
Fashion Week and 116 of the top 200 salons in the country are Aveda. You want to be a
part of network that will give you a lifetime of support? Show me where you can find better
numbers than that.

3. The education-

To go to a name brand school sometimes means you have to pay name
brand money, but the education at Aveda is so worth it. I recently became employed in a
spa setting and I am astounded to see how little some of the estheticians are qualified to
do, even after being out working for multiple years. The extra training that I’ve received at
Aveda allows me to offer a competitive edge against estheticians with more experience than
me, and that is worth its weight in gold.

Why I Chose Cinta Aveda Institute

After completing my college education and working in the stressful world of investment banking I decided it was time for a change. In exploring my next career choice I thought about what I really enjoyed in life, what I spent my spare time doing. I have always been the girl who took extra time finding the perfect outfit to coordinate with my newest pair of heels and lipstick. The girl whose friends always asked for advice on hair and makeup and enjoyed making them up for nights out. A life in the beauty industry was the solution to my problem, finding the right school was my next step.

The Cinta Aveda Institute stood out to me for the following reasons and after completing my program I can tell you I hands down made the right decision.

1. The Schedule: 3 days a week for 10 hours a day

I know 10 hours sounds like a long day but its really only 2 hours longer than a normal work day. Only having school 3 days a week gives you the option to work too. Although cosmetology school can be a full-time job, working in a salon, which I’ve done during my entire time at the institute, has really prepared me for life after beauty school.

2. Working with Aveda:

I attended Chico State University and minored in Business Sustainability. I left college with a strong belief in caring about the world, as well as, what cosmetics I put on my body. Aveda’s dedication to natural products, the world in which we live and giving back to the communities, really influenced my decision to attend. Since being a student, I’ve realized how important my decision to be part of the Aveda system truly is. Beyond their dedication to being a sustainable brand, their name is highly regarded in the beauty and salon industry.

3. The Location: Downtown San Francisco

The Cinta Aveda Institute’s location is perfection. Not only is it easily accessible by public transit but the school has a huge clientele base. You see everyone from young college students, to foreigners on vacation, to professionals working in downtown San Francisco. The difference in hair types, textures and services is exponential. The salon floor itself is beautiful. Its clean and open, with hardwood floors, brick walls, and on the 3rd floor of the building.
