Experience a high-performance environment that trains and pushes you to succeed. Our Cosmetology program will mold you to become salon-ready in just 14 months, while emphasizing a love for life-time learning.

At Aveda Institute Las Vegas, you’ll get to explore all aspects of the beauty industry while using world-class, sustainable products that are plant-infused, cruelty-free and vegan friendly. Not only do we care about your education, but you’ll see how philanthropy is at the heart of who we are.

One of the things you’ll love about our institute is the ability to hone your craft on our busy, clinic floor. With more than a thousand services booked a month with our students, you’ll grow in confidence and skill with our expert educators assisting you each step of the way.

Whether you’re looking to own your own salon, work with the world-renowned Aveda brand, or travel the world doing what you love, we consider it a privilege to take your passion for beauty and transform you into the hair professional you’ve always dreamed of becoming.


Our innovative, 1600-hour Cosmetology course was one of the first in the country to introduce learning on tablets. With the entire curriculum built on iPads, you’ll be able to access your education 24/7 and take clients on our clinic floor where you’ll serve a diverse clientele.

The Masterpiece Program, a copyrighted part of our curriculum, was developed exclusively for the Aveda Institute Las Vegas. We take an artistic approach to learning using five core elements of art, customer service, community connection, technique, and fashion sense. It is designed to help you understand the best ways to address your clients’ overall wellness with techniques that surpass the basics of beauty.

With historically high pass rates from our graduates, we train you for the state board licensure exam, while teaching beyond state board requirements so you can succeed behind the chair.
