'The Carsten Institute teaching methodology is designed to create the most successful hairdressers in our industry. Carsten's system is a most practical and innovative technique. It teaches the students to incorporate modernistic methods to attract and please clients. In my point of view, it's one of the most important habits for a hairdresser to adopt.'

'It was very exciting to come to Phoenix and do a show for your school. It was great meeting all of your students who were very enthusiastic about their new career. There is a great need for a school like yours in New York City. Many people can use the great European techniques that you teach.'

'Why Carsten Aveda Institute?

'After looking at several beauty schools, Carsten Aveda institute is the only one that inspired me the most. The people at this school seem so friendly, classy, fun and energetic. Everyone seems as if they enjoy this school VERY much. I love how this school offers great opportunities for me to work at many high-end hair salons for such an inexpensive tuition. I love how Carsten Aveda Institute offers the most unique style of hair cutting. I’ve been to many beauty schools and all that they teach is the “basic” hair cutting. I would love to learn the basics of hair cutting, however to learn basics and a unique hair cutting at Carsten Aveda is overwhelming! Especially for the prices Carsten Aveda charges. So why am I choosing Carsten Aveda? I’m choosing Carsten Aveda because I feel like I belong here. The atmosphere felt great. Everything at Carsten seemed organized. From the front desk worker to the company manager, I felt everyone knew what he or she was talking about. I loved how the workers did not force me to join the school ASAP, they were able to give me time to think about joining Carsten Aveda.'

'To Carsten,

Finally, this day is here. The day that I have to leave the school and salon. It has been the wonderful internship for 2 months in the salon. Moveover, it was such a happy and great time that I had the opportunity to study in your school, but I have to leave the USA. I hope your school will be like this forever and if I know someone who really has the passion about being in cosmetology, I will recommend them to you.'

Thank you very much,
Chotika, Thai student at the Carsten Institute from October 2008 - June 2009
