What They Say About Us

"I really enjoy coming to school every day. I've never missed a day because I love it! I love the spirit inside, I love the educators that we have and also how we are more hands-on rather than just sitting in a classroom and studying. I toured this school and loved how professional everyone was. I knew right there the AVEDA Institute was the school to go with. When I learned about the products and mission of caring for the world, that was a good find for me. I understood right there it was the perfect match for me."
- Iryna, student

Editor's Description

Aveda Arts and Sciences Institutes focuses on a holistic approach to beauty. The fast-paced cosmetology program combines classroom theory with hands-on practice in salon and spa environments. The program covers everything from cutting and coloring to nail care and makeup application. Cosmetology students also get a free iPad. 

The esthiology program focuses on using skin care rituals and Aveda-trademarked flower and plant essences. In addition, students train in facials, waxing, makeup application, business development, and wellness knowledge for retail purposes.

Alumnus Hans says, "When I chose AVEDA it was because of the mission, the dedication to the environment and beauty through technique and natural products. Everything I've put into this program was given back to me tenfold. When I started, I had no idea how to even blow dry hair. Now I'm an accomplished student with a set of skills for a bright career."

Aveda helps with job placement after graduation through their wide-ranging network of high-end salons and spas nationwide, and they even spotlight rockstars on their website.
