From our students—

“I did it!!! I logged in 1500 hours in cosmetology school and am that much closer to being a licensed cosmetologist once i pass my practical. It took me longer to finish than usual but I did it and pushed through no matter how frustrated and insecure I felt in my abilities some days. I’ve met so many amazing and talented people during my journey with Aveda that have inspired me to do better and work hard and consistently like they do. Lastly, huge thank you to everyone who has helped me by being in my chair especially my parents I owe everything to for being loving and supportive of my choice. Ready to start this new chapter in my life.”
