Editor's Description

Google reviews for those who received student services at Douglas J Aveda Institute average 4.5 stars, and many share a common theme: Clients are sad their student stylists are graduating and moving on. Marci Messina even refers to her stylist, Alejandra, as a "hairgician," saying, "She graduates soon, so make an appointment NOW!" Is there a higher compliment for a cosmetologist-in-training?

The school's Chicago branch focuses on career preparedness in cosmetology and esthiology, beginning with introductory classes and ending with immersion in salon life and exam preparation. They don't make you wait until the last moment to work with clients-you practice on guests throughout much of your program.

The school was one of the first to recognize technology is becoming increasingly important in the beauty field. So, they give every student an iPad to do coursework on. They also provide ring lights and backdrops to make portfolios pop and help learners navigate social media self-branding.
