“I chose Aveda because it’s the best out there. Not only the products, but the service and the education.”
- Xaria

“The reason I chose Aveda was due to the stylist I have known that pushed me to be the best. They informed me Aveda opens doors other schools couldn’t offer. The reviews I had read before applying gave me the assurance I wanted to become an Aveda graduate.”
- Ricky

“When I decided to change careers and follow my dreams, it was important to me that I received as much “hands on” training as possible.  Aveda’s reputation for preparing their students to be exceptional, in my opinion, is unmatched in this industry.
