Cosmopolitan and close to the coast, Houston has grown into a thriving metropolis, with a vibrant mix of Southern, Latin, and Urban culture. Whether you’re into the trendy shopping district in Mid-town, or the up-and-coming hipster scene downtown, beauty abounds across the city. That means the environment is ripe for beauty schools in Houston, and the AVEDA Institute Houston, located in the nearby suburb of Shenandoah is perfectly positioned to take advantage of this heightened interest in fashion and style. To keep up with all the glamour, we made sure our campus was just as gorgeous as its fabulous students. Whether you’re a guest coming in to receive our trademark AVEDA Difference in services, or a student on their way to becoming the next hot hairstylist, the AVEDA Institute Houston is where you’ll find the high level of quality you would expect from an AVEDA school. There are other beauty schools in Houston, but only one AVEDA Institute, where every cosmetology program enrollee now receives an iPad. Come experience the difference by visiting the campus in person, call or text us, or access our full online application form here — and someone from our friendly admissions team will schedule a tour to discuss the best beauty school choice for you and your career goals. To schedule an appointment for services, stop by, give us a call or book online here.
Our cosmetology course and master student phase incorporate theory with extensive hands on experience to provide you with a complete understanding of beauty and wellness. The program includes hair cutting, color, texture services, nail care, makeup application, business development, retail knowledge and the concept of gaining and retaining clients. Upon completion, students move on to the master student phase for intensive real-world training to hone their skills.
Our Esthiology program prepares you for a future as a skin care specialist. The training utilizes our trademark AVEDA pure flower and plant essences and wellness rituals. Every graduate will be trained in facials, waxing, makeup application, business development, wellness and retail knowledge.
