Aveda Institute Orlando

It’s a college town. It’s a big city. It’s a short jaunt to the beach. It’s visited more than any other destination in the world. It’s got shopping, nightlife, and a million things to do. It’s the epicenter of fun, and the AVEDA Institute Orlando, located in the hip suburb of Winter Park, is smack dab in the middle of it all. Of our five beauty schools in Florida, Aveda Institute Orlando consistently shines as a top performer. With a history of producing exciting events and award-winning hair, its student body doesn’t just want to prove itself as the best beauty school in Orlando, it wants to be known as hands down the best beauty school in Florida. It’s their mission to deliver the AVEDA Difference to every one of our guests, so all of our services create a unique experience that is both memorable and rejuvenating. The magic happens in our fast-paced and fashionable cosmetology and dual-license spa therapy programs, where every cosmetology program enrollee now receives an iPad, and the brightest young minds in beauty push each other to become the industry’s next best hair stylists and spa therapists. Each student at the AVEDA Institute Orlando enjoys an individual curriculum designed just for them. This custom-tailored approach is a benchmark of every AVEDA school, and this campus is a stunning example of how it works. So if you’re deciding between Florida beauty schools and you want to see this passion in action for yourself— swing by the campus, send a text, pick up the phone, or begin the enrollment process with the full online application form — and one of our admissions team members will walk you through the process of finding the best beauty school to suit your future. To schedule an appointment for services, stop by, give us a call or book online here.

Barbering is one of the fastest-growing segments of the salon industry. At AVEDA, we encounter guests who want a barbershop experience but with services that feature our unique AVEDA brand of difference. That’s why we designed our Barbering Program to provide students with all the traditional techniques of machine cutting, scissor cutting for more structured shapes, grooming and color, with the extra care, wellness, and styling that our guests expect from an AVEDA-certified stylist.
