Why Aveda Institute Las Vegas


Founded in 1978, Aveda is a global leader in the beauty and wellness industry, with salons, spas, and institutions in more than 40 countries. When you choose Aveda, you choose a network of thousands of graduates, brand ambassadors, and successful professionals to tap into. The Aveda brand is synonymous with thorough training, customer service, and a holistic mission.


Aveda launched an entire brand focused on sustainability, using recycled materials, manufacturing products through renewable energy, and using 100% vegan, non-cruelty products. Our mission dates back to the ’70s when our founder visited India and adopted a love for beauty in nature. You can read more about our history and mission here.


We average between a thousand and 1,400 services a month! Located in Las Vegas, our student clinic stays busy—allowing our students the ability to hone their craft, practice exceptional guest service, and grow in confidence working on real people (with our expert educators assisting you).


Depending on the program you choose, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in exciting events and add-on classes.


With excellent passing 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. Part of your curriculum will be focused on: time management, product knowledge (what we call “purescribing”), growing clientele, and other basic business and marketing techniques that will help you become successful once you graduate.


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.


Our innovative courses were some of the first in the nation 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. We’re constantly adding the latest trends and newest techniques to our lesson plans so that you can stay up-to-date on what’s happening in the industry.


We offer lifetime job placement assistance for our graduates! We have multiple career fairs on campus throughout the year to connect you face-to-face with employers, and we’re always here to assist you with mock interviews, resume writing, and portfolio development.
