In 1924, Franco Cipriotti opened Masion de Paris, the first cosmetology school in New Jersey. Originally located in Camden, the school offered students the opportunity to learn the creative art of cosmetology. Continuing Franco Cipriotti's dream, his family has continued in the forefront of health and beauty education.
Franco's daughter, Anna and her husband, Sal Rizzieri, assumed ownership of the school in 1975. The husband and wife team, along with their son, Frank - a nationally recognized editorial stylist, and Dino - an operational executive, relocated the School to Haddonfield, New Jersey.
In 2009, the family once again moved the School. Now located in the suburban Voorhees, New Jersey, the School incorporates beauty, wellness, and education into a state-of-the-art facility. The Rizzieri family envisioned a second story of a building that would house the School and Aveda Lifestyle Store. In the Voorhees location, their vision became reality with the renovation of a 14,500 square foot facility. The top floor of the facility is where the School is located.
The 14,500 square foot Rizzieri Aveda School provides superior Cosmetology, Skin Care, Manicuring, and Teacher's Training programs. The School has both classroom and clinical environments that are enhanced with all the technical equipment necessary to learn the trade. Teaching is enhanced with the use of electronic equipment such as PowerPoint presentations, DVDs, and videos. Free parking is provided in a nearby lot.
