Guest Post: Aveda Institute Scholarship Contest!
Were you Born to Style? Many top stylists recall childhood years spent paying close attention to what does (and doesn’t) look stylish. If you’ve grown up with a preternatural sense of awareness as to what hair styles and colours look best with certain face shapes and skin tones, then it is possible that you have been Born to Style.
Stylists are happy in their work. No other profession allows you to make good money in such a people-based environment with flexible hours and glamorous perks. Read about Taylor Smits, a top hair stylist in Vancouver and graduate of Aveda Institute Canada’s Vancouver hair school. Since graduating, Smits not only brings in a six-figure income, he travels to world-class fashion events to style and loves every minute of his profession, particularly being involved in the personal transformations of his customers.
Aveda Institute Canada is running a hair school scholarship video contest for five Institutes: Calgary, Toronto, Vancouver, Victoria and Winnipeg!
If you feel you were Born to Style, you could win your education (that’s enrollment in Aveda’s 1-year hair program, to be exact) worth upwards of $10,000.
