Our Institute was founded to create the most successful entrepreneurs in hair, skin, makeup, massage and total body wellness. Our students are educated by accomplished professionals, using innovative curriculums that blend industry standard techniques with business-building and retail skills. The Aveda institute emphasizes personal well-being, as well as, environmental responsibility. Using Aveda pure flower plant essences and plant-based products,  we affirm the relationship between personal beauty, wellness and the environment.

The salon industry is about abundance. If you're interested in fashion, you can work on photo shoots, runway shows, movies and more. If you prefer a salon environment, the industry is exploding. The average full-time salon salary across the US is $50,000 per year. The price of a hair cut in an Aveda salon is twice the industry standard. That means you can earn well over the national average. The career paths are vast and varied and our staff will help you get started.

Class size is limited to enable us to give each student personal attention.
