- Q WHAT IS AVEDA?
Aveda is a global, environmentally pioneering company founded in 1978. A widely recognized, path-blazing brand of nature-based products for hair, skin, body and well-being. Beyond our reputation for retail excellence, we’re acclaimed for our salon/spa network—made up of like-minded industry trendsetters, award-winners, and educators, supported at every step of their creative and business growth.
In all, we champion best-business practices: “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.”
- Q WHY CHOOSE A CAREER AT AN AVEDA SALON OR SPA?
Aveda is more than an educational opportunity or a job; it’s a way of life. Our philosophy of making the world a better place infuses everything we do, and that spirit has created a network of exceptional strength and energy. Want proof? 89 of America’s top 200 fastest-growing salons and spas are part of the Aveda family.
- Q WHY GET AN AVEDA EDUCATION?
The Aveda difference is our holistic vision of what it means to be successful. More than teaching hair, skin care and body care techniques, our unique, salon-ready environment puts you behind the chair, behind the retail counter, even in the owner’s shoes—in direct contact with clients, for personal, practical experience. We impart real-world retail and business skills, and strategic insights that help you find—and take best advantage of—the tremendous opportunities in beauty and wellness.
- Q DO AVEDA INSTITUTES OFFER FINANCIAL AID?
Yes, financial aid is available to those who qualify. Each Institute has its own Financial Aid Department to assist you.
- Q WHAT IS THE JOB OUTLOOK IN BEAUTY AND COSMETOLOGY? IS IT GROWING?
