Are you Born to Style?
Everyone has friends who work in fashion and beauty related jobs, and by and large these folks are happier than the people who work at the bank, or have their own stores, or have IT jobs in office towers downtown. Men and women that become personal stylists are usually pretty happy with themselves – they turn into honest reliable friends who are quite fulfilled because they feel satisfied with what they do everyday, which is to help other people look and feel their best. And they can get wealthy too, just like the rest of them – there is a lot of money to be made in this line of work. The truly gifted stylists do indeed feel like they were called to the job from a higher power – they feel like they were born to style.
Born to Style is a video contest that you can enter and perhaps win your entire tuition (about $10K of high quality education) at one of four different Aveda Institutes across Canada.

The 2013 Born to Style Hair School Scholarship Contest is on again, brought to you by Aveda Institute. The competition is the exact same structure as last year and I should have written more about it here sooner because the open submission window closes March 1st 2012.
This social media contest was created to help talented art students who have just learned hair styling, or perhaps do not even know yet the basics of cutting hair, start bold new careers as hair stylists. The competition is designed to help these ‘undiscovered’ artists find themselves by becoming hair and beauty stylists, and of course there is a very good chance in each and every city in the world that they will also find a satisfying career at the top of the food chain. There are four full scholarships available – one for each of the AVEDA Institutes in Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary and Vancouver.
AVEDA Institute Canada challenges young people to step up and prove they are Born to Style again in 2013; applicants need to show contest administrators they deserve to be included in each city’s top five finalists group. They need to display on video what they will do when asked to perform in a live hair styling competition in front of important guests, and be judged by celebrity hair stylists in four cities across Canada.
There will be four hair showdowns, one in each city Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary, and Vancouver. Stay tuned to the social media channels in each of the cities for the dates.
