    Austin August Student Spotlight

    Congratulations to Diana Leon for being Aveda Institute Austin’s August Student of the Month!

    Get to know Diana better by reading below.

    August Student of the Month


    “Being a hairstylist was always a dream of mine. When I graduated in 2005 from Round Lake Senior High School in Illinois, I enrolled into the college of lake county for their cosmetology program. My experience was great and I learned a few things but was unable to finish because of financial issues.

    11 years later, I got married and became a stay at home mom of 3 kids with a busy dance schedule. However, I felt I was still missing something in my life. Going back to school was a challenge for me because I loved being home with my family. After a long talk with my biggest supporters (my husband, parents, and siblings), I decided to begin my hunt. I started to Google cosmetology schools in Austin and came across Aveda.

    During my admissions tour, not only did the conversation with the admissions counselor make me feel comfortable, but I also felt completely at home. Everyone was super nice and cheerful and the schedule that was offered was perfect for my busy dance mom schedule.

    That night, I told my husband I was ready and he supported me 100%. My parents and siblings were a tremendous help as well. They helped with my baby, school, and dance classes.

    Six months into my program, I have no regrets with my decision. I love Aveda and how they are so understanding with my mommy needs plus, I am able to get hands on training with guests. Aveda has been an amazing journey for me.”
