Aveda Arts & Sciences Institute New Orleans

Steeped in history, overflowing with culture, legendary for fun, and praised for fine cuisine, there’s no place quite like the Big Easy. The whole town is one tasty serving of red hot jambalaya. But when it comes to one of the best beauty schools in New Orleans, the secret ingredient is the Aveda Arts & Sciences Institute New Orleans, located in the suburb of Metairie. Our cosmetology and esthiology programs produce just the right flavor of fashionable style and professional skill. We know because our guests can’t get enough of the AVEDA Difference delivered by our students during all of our unique services. While the student themselves feed on our trademark AVEDA school curriculum that considers every new enrollee as unique as the city itself by providing an education designed to meet each individual student’s needs. That way they can focus on becoming the next hot stylist or makeup artist to work in the thriving film industry in New Orleans. Or behind the chair in one of the growing number of high end salons popping up in the continued post-Katrina expansion. So when you’re searching for New Orleans beauty schools, feast your eyes on the Aveda Arts & Sciences Institute New Orleans, where every cosmetology program enrollee now receives an iPad.
