What Makes an Aveda Education Different?

The Aveda brand has been around since the late 1970s, and while many people know who we are, they may not know what we do, or what makes us different.

At Aveda, we are more than quality hair and skin products, although we do that quite well too. We have built ourselves upon a foundation that is more than just external, it’s an internal beauty that we share throughout the world.

The Aveda Difference Begins in Our Humble Beginnings

Here are five things that do more than help us stand out, they make us who we are.

A Holistic History

Founded in 1978, the Aveda brand began as an idea when our founder, Horst Rechelbacher, visited India and Nepal and began to see the many benefits of many of the natural and holistic traditions they have in that region.

The use of nature to expand our internal calm and health was relatively unknown back then, but Horst knew the benefits and he wanted to share them.

It all started with a single shampoo, Shampure™, and that’s all it took to show the world the benefits of nature.

It’s those benefits that still make up our identity, and our passions, today.

An Aromatic Experience

Did you know that Aveda was one of the first brands to utilize aromatherapy? In fact, many people credit our founder, Horst Rechelbacher, with bringing this ancient practice into the mainstream.

At Aveda, we have been using aromatherapy methods for decades and include their healing and relaxing properties not only in our products, but in the rituals that you can experience both at home and in our salon.

A Commitment to the Planet

One of the things that truly sets the Aveda brand apart is our commitment to the planet. For us, it’s more than a passion, it’s a dedication toward the world and the resources we are leaving for future generations.

We show this dedication in our products, by only sourcing renewable resources and keeping our products safe for everyone. One of the biggest ways we show this is in our cruelty-free promise.

We extend our dedication to production by utilizing recycled materials and solar energy in our manufacturing processing.

We are dedicating more than our time to the world, we are dedicated to its future.

We Believe in Community

In addition to our commitment to the planet, we also strive to give back to the people and communities that make up this amazing place. At Aveda Institute Las Vegas, we do more than build future cosmetologists, we build future heroes of hair and community.

We strive to give back to the neighborhoods we call home with annual food and clothing drives and other events that help to foster a culture of volunteering and philanthropy.

More than that, as an Aveda school, we participate in several yearly events and fundraising opportunities that help support communities in need, and help us leave this planet a little better than we found it.

From sponsoring the digging of water wells in Africa to creating jobs for women and families in Nepal, we are passionate about helping others find a joy in stability in their lives. As a beauty professional, or wherever your life may lead.

You Are Important to Us.

At Aveda Institute Las Vegas we know that the biggest part of the Aveda brand is the difference we make in the lives of our students and the futures they make for themselves. Our commitment extends to you, and to your future.
