Cosmetology & Esthiology School in Knoxville
We’ve taken up shop in a beautiful historic diner right in the Gateway to the Smokey Mountains and preserved the original architecture of the building starting with the recycled green glass on the outside. The ceilings, staircase, flooring and restaurant bar are all preserved as well and seamlessly integrated with our institute and luxury upscale spa. Located in the heart of downtown Knoxville, we’re surrounded by shops and restaurants, just steps from Market Square, which holds weekly events from art fairs to concerts.
In any of our programs you’ll receive a well-rounded education that will expand your creativity and sharpen and hone your talents. You’ll never stop learning. Our instructors are well-versed in modern techniques and classic styles, and the hands-on experience you get as a student at Douglas J Aveda Institute Knoxville will prepare you for a fulfilling career in the world of beauty. Our programs include Cosmetology, Esthiology and Master Barbering. Contact us today – we would love to meet you!
