Smaller Class Size Attracts Rising Number of Students At Avalon School of Cosmetology

The employment outlook for barbers, hairdressers, and cosmetologists is expected to grow 14% between 2010 and 2020. The growth in this industry will see the need for more classes and training at certified schools, like Avalon School of Cosmetology.

Mesa, AZ (I-Newswire) January 18, 2013 - According to information released in the Occupational Outlook Handbook, the employment outlook for barbers, hairdressers, and cosmetologists is expected to grow 14 percent between 2010 and 2020. This growth in the industry, according to Brandon Pobiak of the Avalon School of Cosmetology (, a beauty school in Mesa, will see the need for more classes and training at certified schools of Cosmetology.

Says Pobiak, "Small classrooms provide the best learning opportunities for students, but that means there needs to be more classes established to meet the growing needs of the industry. Here at Avalon, the student and his or her career are our first priority. As such, our classrooms are small so that we can provide each of our students with the individual attention required to become the best stylists and practitioners in the industry."

The rise in student numbers in cosmetology schools, according to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, comes as others leave the field, some going out on their own to become self employed, and others looking for different opportunities. Pobiak, however, feels the cosmetology industry is attracting more students because so many are tired of corporate America. "For many, the idea of a mundane office job makes them want to cringe. Students tell us they crave flexible schedules and want the opportunity to design their own career path. You simply don't get that in typical business positions."

Another draw to the cosmetology industry, says Pobiak, is the wide variety of workplace locations to choose from. "While some of our students will go on to work in a traditional beauty salon or spa on Main Street, America, still others may accept work on cruise ships, up-scale hotels, or even take teaching positions in other beauty schools across the country. It's the type of employment needed in every city and town in the country."

Entrepreneur opportunities are another reason why many men and women are leaving the mainstream business arena for a more creative career like cosmetology, says Pobiak. "We see our students starting their own salons, creating salon birthday party companies, and filling niches in the industry that make us proud. We find the most successful students are the ones who can see outside the corporate box and aren't afraid of a little hard work. Maybe they'll start selling their own line of hair care products or perhaps they'll be happy consulting about a bad hairstyle. The great thing for them is that every day will be different and they will be in control of their futures."
