Aveda Institute Portland, Hair, Beauty School

Instructor Danny often leads his class in a wellness called “Love Notes” He has his class pick someone they appreciate and they each write a little “love note” to let them know how much they mean to them. Danny says "It is best to be as sappy and corny as possible." Activities like these are just little ways to show your appreciation and your gratitude but they can change someone’s entire day- yours too! 

Being thankful has many advantages; check out this article from Forbes...

Joe Ortis is a hair design graduate from 2011 and Allyson Williams, an Esthiology graduate from 2013.

  • Aveda Institute Graduation Class of 2015

Our recent graduation seemed to have a common theme among our student speakers– one thing that truly touched each of them during their time at AIP. Catwalk for Water. Each speaker mentioned how important this event was to them during their time here. It helped them reinforce why they chose Aveda to begin with. Because at Aveda we care for the world we live in. Seriously.

But it wasn't just about catwalk. Student speaker Rena Graham recalled how nervous she was to first start school at the age of 46. Nervous she wouldn't fit with girls half her age….nervous that she might not be “pretty” enough.
