Received such a great facial from Jessica Howard. The products she used are lovely and Jessica's technique was very professional. She was lovely to talk to and made the experience very enjoyable. I hope to book with her again before she graduates.

Editor's Description

Much like Avenue Five's North Austin location, the school's South Austin campus offers hybrid courses in both cosmetology and esthetics. The school's location helps it appeal to aspiring beauty professionals living in South Austin or commuting from San Marcos, Dripping Springs, Buda, Bee Cave, Kyle, Driftwood, Wimberley, Lockhart, Bastrop, and New Braunfels.

Both programs are designed to fit the needs of busy adult learners, with day (full-time) and evening (part-time) classes available to all students alongside distance learning options.

Avenue Five became Modern Salon's most awarded school in 2017 when it was honored in four different categories, including technology, facilities, and community involvement.
