In my experience, the Aveda Institute graduates are far better prepared for the salon environment. They come to the salon with a high level of confidence, outstanding customer service skills and extensive product knowledge already in place.
Marjorie Livingstone
Owner, Aveda Bethesda Salon and Spa
Hiring students from the Aveda Institute makes it easier on me as an owner because I don’t have to spend as much time, energy and money retraining them on the Aveda methodology. They come prepared already knowing product knowledge and the Aveda signature spa services.
