Aveda Institute Tampa Bay

Natural light pours through the vaulted glass windows. Amazing beauty imagery adorns the 30-foot walls. Raw wood, polished concrete, and metal create a feeling of industrial chic. A steady stream of guests enjoy our complimentary rituals and unique services that define the AVEDA Difference. This crown jewel of a campus generates energy and exudes high end style. Combine that with its close proximity to lush, white sandy beaches and the rich culture of the tri-city area — including Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Clearwater — and you can easily see why many students consider the AVEDA Institute Tampa Bay, located in the suburb of Clearwater, as one of the best beauty school decisions they ever made. But beyond the fashionable and relaxing atmosphere of the facility, and the endless amenities of the surrounding area, our students enjoy a fast-paced, real word curriculum designed to uphold the AVEDA Institute mission as a cosmetology school leader and promoter of personal health and wellness. Each program is individually tailored to meet your career goal of becoming a hair stylist, esthetician or beauty industry professional, and now every cosmetology program enrollee receives an iPad. So if you’re looking for a beauty school in the Tampa Bay area — drop by, send a text, call, or complete the full online application form — to arrange a tour with someone from our admissions team who is dedicated and passionate about finding the best beauty school to fit your future.
