Whether you’re into the trendy shopping district in Mid-town, or the up-and-coming hipster scene downtown, beauty abounds across the city. That means the environment is ripe for beauty schools in Houston, and the Aveda Arts & Sciences Institute Houston, located in the nearby suburb of Shenandoah is perfectly positioned to take advantage of this heightened interest in fashion and style. To keep up with all the glamour, we made sure our campus was just as gorgeous as its fabulous students. Whether you’re a guest coming in to receive our trademark AVEDA Difference in services, or a student on their way to becoming the next hot hairstylist, the Aveda Arts & Sciences Institute Houston is where you’ll find the high level of quality you would expect from an AVEDA school.
