    Aveda Lafayette’s December Student of the Month

    Shelby was chosen as our student of the month for December!

    Lafayette Cosmetology Student

    Shelby graduated high school from Church Point High. She was valedictorian of her graduating class and also on the cheer squad. Shelby won the 2016 Catwalk for Water full paid scholarship from Aveda Institute! She will be graduating in June 2017 from Cosmetology.

    Shelby is a one of a kind! She has a true passion for this industry and is more than willing to go out of her way to help anyone.  You will never see Shelby without a smile or a glow from within.  She is an example of true love and leadership. She demonstrates excellence in everything she does. Shelby is a genuine person and always has a positive attitude. All of her educators agrees that she is a joy to teach. She is very selfless, talented, and a beautiful young lady inside and out! She is the definition of world class!

    Why Aveda?
    I chose Aveda because the school and company as a whole always impressed me. I always loved coming to the institute and always seeing happy students and staff who were always so welcoming. After I won the Catwalk for water scholarship, I knew it was meant to be for me to attend Aveda institute.

    Why Hair?
    I chose hair because as a little girl I would always watch my grandmother do hair in the salon and it always made me so happy to watch and learn from her. My passion for hair all started in her salon at a very young age.

    Favorite skill?
    My favorite skill would have to be color and highlight services. I love seeing such a change and being able to create something that is my very own. I plan to further my knowledge with color.

    After Aveda?
    After Aveda I plan to work in an Aveda Salon for a few years. One day I want to own my very own Aveda salon. I am so excited to see where the beauty industry takes me and what the future holds for me.

    Advice for peers
    My advice to peers would be to get up each morning and try to be as positive as you can. Once you develop a positive mindset, your day will flow much better and your clients will enjoy your presence and energy that much more.
