Aveda Institute Jacksonville

Just consider the landscape — from the historic St. John’s River to its vast coastline, gorgeous beaches, and nearby art scene in St. Augustine — it makes perfect sense to have a cosmetology school in Jacksonville that encourages all natural beauty. With a campus located next to Whole Foods in the up and coming enclave of Mandarin Landing, the AVEDA Institute Jacksonville represents a stunning example of what a beauty school should look and feel like. And thanks to the city’s growing arts scene, picturesque skyline, and excellent entertainment community, the AVEDA Institute is quickly becoming a hot destination for cosmetology students looking for one of the best beauty schools in Jacksonville using only naturally-derived products with certified organic ingredients. Supervised students learn their craft in a real world salon environment, while guests receive the unique difference characterized by a state-of-the-art AVEDA school. It’s an experience you have to see for yourself.

So whether you’re looking for a cosmetology school in Jacksonville, or want the luxury for less service you’ve come to expect from an AVEDA school, look no further than the AVEDA Institute Jacksonville, where every cosmetology program enrollee now receives an iPad.
