Winonah International School of Cosmetology holds a sentimental place in Mondonna Movahed’s heart. Besides her interest in making a difference in the lives of enthusiastic and eager-to-learn students, Winonah’s prior owner was Mondonna’s younger sister Bita who passed away in 2009 at age 34.
Winonah is one of the first locally owned cosmetology schools to be licensed in the state of Alabama. The business was originally founded in 1984, and it has been in Mondonna’s family since 1998.
“We’ve had the opportunity to train hundreds of cosmetologists in the past 30 years, most of whom are now successful business owners, stylists, educators and managers in our state,” Mondonna said. Winonah offers open enrollment for a variety of programs including cosmetology, nail technology, cosmetology instructor, natural hair, and manicurist/waxer, and they will soon offer barbering. Winonah currently offers $1,000 off tuition as well as no registration fee for students who enroll by January 31, 2015.
The school also delivers personalized, positive guest experiences to keep them coming back. All services are performed in a professional salon setting with an extensive list of hair, skin and nail services available. Among the school’s specialties are high fashion birthday parties for children where the school helps create memorable moments for you to share with your little girl.
Over the past few years, Winonah has gone through a lot of changes to stay current with the ever-changing trends in the hair and beauty industry. Winonah recently celebrated the grand opening of its new & modern facility on December 9 in Hoover with dozens of staff, students, associates, family members and Hoover Area Chamber of Commerce ambassadors.
“We are so proud of what we have accomplished so far at Winonah. I am so fortunate to have the support of my family and friends every step of the way,” Mondonna said. “I strongly encourage you to visit Winonah, tour our facility, talk to the students and instructors, and see all that the Winonah International School of Cosmetology School has to offer.”
