Aveda Arts New York had the opportunity to host 40 high school students with the purpose of treating them to a self-care day and helping them launch into their future careers and college.
“I think young individuals like these students don’t often get the opportunity to take a break and just have a day to themselves,” shared Aveda Arts student London Peebler.
Some of the students have already shown interest in entering the beauty industry – one of the girls has a hair business account on Instagram called Slayedbythebestttt.
“We want to expose our students to many opportunities now to get them career and college ready,” said Jaivelle Reed, the principal at Chelsea Career and Technical Education High School (pix11 news).
Our Aveda Arts students treated the high schoolers to facials and new hairstyles. “It felt really special to be a part of that day and get to make them feel like they could just exist for a few hours, without any stress,” said Peebler.
It is important to host these field trips for younger students to educate them on the many paths they can pursue if they were to earn a Cosmetology license through Aveda Arts.
Our alumni have become celebrity makeup artists, worked with New York Fashion Week, started their own skincare brands and so much more.
In our curriculum, students are trained in skills like hair styling, makeup application, and waxing and even learn real-world skills like business training and career development.
