Quality Education

All of our Board Members and Staff have been involved in the hairdressing profession for many years and want to share all of our lessons learned with you in the hope that you will receive all the rewards that a challenging yet fulfilling career offers.

Brown Aveda Institute will provide you a quality education in Cosmetology, Esthiology, and Nail Esthetics while teaching the principles of self-mastery, motivational people skills and appreciation for the arts from which hair, make-up and nail art is born. Always that wellness is the purest form of inner beauty.

Each of our programs encompasses three types of learning:

  • Theoretical knowledge, the foundation of your education

  • Professional business-building skills, vital for your success

Each phase of your education will emphasize a different combination of these approaches.

Upon completion, you'll be ready to succeed as a licensed esthetician or makeup artist.
