    Aveda Beauty School Students Shine at Beacon Awards

    The Beacon program provides cosmetology students with the opportunity to expand their education and network with the industry’s highest profile salon owners, professionals and stylists. Beacon students attend specialized classes with the biggest names in the industry, get up close and personal with NAHA winners and finalists and get a firm understanding of the business of beauty. The event occurs each July during PBA Beauty Week and is held in Las Vegas. There is a Beacon entry process where student’s work is judged on creativity, professionalism and the content of their professional portfolio. Student’s who earn the highest scores are invited to attend the live educational program during Beauty week. The entry process is designed to help develop students into salon professionals.

    Take a look at some of the work from Aveda Arts & Sciences Institute South Beacon Students and Honorable Mentions.
