The days are steadily growing warmer. The flowers are blooming and you are quickly becoming unable to control the daydreams. Days at the beach, lounging in the sun with a book, trying out the newest beauty trends, starting cosmetology school.

No, that last one was not a mistake, although we know what you are thinking, “Summer is not the time to start school!” but this is beauty school we’re talking about! This summer you can be studying something that you’re actually passionate about and this season is an amazing time to start an education in cosmetology!

Don’t believe us? Here are the three ways you can rock school this summer.

1. Get a Head Start⏩

If you are graduating high school this summer, chances are that many of your friends are taking the summer off for one last hurrah. But what if you dove right in and started school? What if you got a head start and launched yourself into a future before your friends? By starting your cosmetology school experience in the summer, you are doing just that! When all your friends are just starting to think about their educational future, you can already be learning advanced beauty techniques. Worried you will miss out on that final summer experience? Well, we have news for you…

2. Work Hard, Play Hard🏖️

The splendors of summer won’t disappear just because you are enrolled in cosmetology school. Because many Douglas J Aveda Institutes have full and part time schedules, you can tailor your experience to fit your summer schedule. With one of our available part time schedules you could still graduate before many of your friends have picked a major! Plus, you would have the time to hit the beach, take a mini-vacay and even hold down a part-time job if you so desire. You will still have plenty of time to enjoy the summer with friends and family.

3. Ease Your Financial Burden💵

Money is probably the number one reason that many people wait to begin school or even contemplate beginning school at all. While the financials can be frightening, there is an added bonus to starting in summer that you may not have considered. By starting before July 1, your aid award could sneak into last year’s Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) schedule, meaning that the money you borrow* will be stretched out, possibly easing the financial burden and limiting any out of pocket expenses.

BONUS: A Jumpstart on a New Future🔄

If you’re looking for a career change, summer is the perfect time to get ahead with your plans and make the most of your future. While all your friends are waiting for fall to start their education, you can already be learning advanced beauty techniques to help you in your career. Since class sizes are usually smaller in the summer, you could gain even more by the instructors having more time to help you personally. In a career where creativity is so important, it can be a great help to find your unique beauty style with an experienced instructor helping you with best practices and techniques.

What Are You Doing This Summer?☀️

Whether you are a fresh high school graduate or have been out of school for a few years, it’s never too late to begin a fresh start and make a move toward a new career! At Douglas J Aveda Institute, we believe that anyone with a passion for beauty should go after an education in cosmetology. Make your summer the best it can be.
