Aveda is a global brand with a mission. Aveda pros are out there, across the world, making a difference in one way or another. Here are a few places you can find us that you may have not known before!
In the Fashion World
New York Fashion Week
That’s right. Aveda stylists are making waves in the fashion community. New York Fashion Week is a notable event that one of the Aveda stylists, Frank Rizzieri, made a splash at this year with his everyday yet chic style.
Global Aveda Competitions
In 2017 Aveda Artists were crowned country winners at the Aveda Global Fashionista competition. This competition pushes their creative limits and allows them to contribute to trending styles and looks. Aveda pros from all over the world attended, and few were honored with this amazing accomplishment. Every year Aveda celebrates the collaboration of fashion and beauty and the way that Aveda contributes to yearly trends. This is just one of many celebrations held to spotlight their accomplishments.
Aveda is heavily involved in the fashion industry, event internally. It is an exciting way for the brand to be involved with the community!
Making a Difference
The Aveda mission is centered around making a difference, which is why Aveda participates in an effort to improve lives in Nepal. For years they have purchased handcrafted paper for the gift boxes that are available every year. These gift boxes full of product goodies go on sale, wrapped in this unique paper. Not only are the gift boxes making a difference in local economies in Nepal, but they also benefit the environment that they are derived from.
Breast Cancer Research
Each year during Breast Cancer Research month, Aveda releases their signature hand relief™ moisturizing creme. They donate $4 (US) of the purchase price from each sale to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®.
Preserving the Earth
For Earth Month in April, Aveda donates 100% of the purchase price, of their signature light the way candles™ to Global Greengrants Fund for water-related projects in 85 countries. Clean water means a clean planet.
Manufacturing and Packaging Responsibly
Aveda was the first company to use 100% post-consumer recycled PET. Today, more than 85% of skin care and hair styling PET containers that are made up of 100% post-consumer recycled materials. Aveda also utilizes responsible and renewable resources in their manufacturing processes.
Aveda is a cruelty-free brand. They do not test on animals, and products are “people-tested.” Aveda donates funds to cruelty-free research on environmental causes and links to breast cancer. They care about the world we live in and want to make sure we preserve earth as best we can.
In the Salon
It is quite obvious that Aveda products are sold in Aveda salons everywhere, but did you know that they are also available in their educational institutes? That’s right. You can enjoy the benefits of the products at your local Aveda school. Here at Aveda Institute Las Vegas, we not only utilize the products in our spa and salon, but we train our students to give their guests consultation on purchases and at-home care.
Educating the Future
Aveda has become a brand affiliate for schools across the nation. By integrating Aveda into our curriculum, we teach our students about products that are conscious of and passionate about a cause that affects us all. We love our Aveda affiliation because the culture of Aveda Las Vegas is already that of charity and giving back. We love to participate in local events and service projects, and we’re excited to be a part of the Aveda community.
