Each of our Institutes engage an Advisory Board of successful salon and spa owners to guide and assess the effectiveness of our curriculum. Each institute has a curriculum that provides hands-on training in our clinic salon or spa environment. You’ll have licensed educators to advise and consult you as you become comfortable with your new skills, and a customer base who understands that you’re here to learn — which is what it’s all about!
An AVEDA Institute education is rigorous and thorough. Students are proud of the extensive details of their curriculum, which covers anatomy (the bones of the face, important for makeup application) to color theory (essential to understanding complementary colors in hair and makeup). When you immerse yourself in any of our programs, you’ll cover topics in varying levels of depth and detail, giving you an exceptional foundation for your professional career.
AVEDA Institute graduates receive preferential placement in AVEDA’s respected network of 7,000 thriving salons and spas worldwide. Student placement in successful salons and spas is a priority, and AVEDA brings you incredible opportunities for growth — both personal and professional. We also offer lifetime job placement assistance, however we do not guarantee employment.
Our curriculums are designed to prepare students for the state licensing examinations in their field, as well as allow them to successfully acquire a salon or spa position upon graduation. Students will learn the technical, personal and business skills to prepare them for work in a professional salon or spa catering to state laws, safety and sanitation requirements.
Since we are also salon & spa owners, we have first-hand knowledge of what owners want in an employee. Our curriculum reflects the insights of successful salon and spa professionals; when you graduate, you will know the qualities an owner looks for and will be equipped with a standard of excellence to meet their expectations.
We believe in treating ourselves, each other, and the planet with care and respect. We believe social responsibility is our responsibility. We believe ecological and profit goals are mutually achievable. We believe our authenticity and experience are our points of difference. We believe in inspiring and educating people to integrate wellness and beauty in their lives. We believe in the power of oneness: from our global image to a focused network. We believe learning never ends. We believe in encouraging innovation and empowered decision-making. We believe our actions, products and services should always embody excellence. We believe personal and organizational balance is the key to sustainable success. We believe true leadership is delivered with passion and by example.
At Aveda, The Art and Science of Pure Flower and Plant Essences, we believe that Nature is the best beauty artist of all. This is why we continually strive to increase our use of naturally derived ingredients whenever possible.
Naturally Derived: We define naturally derived ingredients to be those for which more than 50% of the molecule comes from a plant, non-petroleum mineral, water, or some other natural source.
We believe there is no responsible alternative to doing business other than through the pursuit of environmental sustainability and this belief guides every decision we make. We find inspiration for doing so in nature and believe that nature is not merely something to be cherished and protected, but also should be emulated as a model of sustainability. We also believe that profit and environmental responsility will increasingly work together as more industries find out that “nature works” for both sustainability and the bottom-line.
5,000 years of results. Our earliest roots lie in ayurveda, the Indian healing tradition based on the knowledge of life and the interconnectedness of all things. It has proven, over 5,000 years, that treating the whole person leads to greater balance and well-being, so we consider the effects of our products not only on hair or skin, but on body, mind and emotion.
Connecting beauty, environment and well-being.
Our mission at Aveda is to care for the world we live in, from the products we make to the ways in which we give back to society. At Aveda, we strive to set an example for environmental leadership and responsibility, not just in the world of beauty, but around the world.
We look forward to meeting you.
