How Do I Become an Aveda Institute Instructor?

At the Aveda Institute Portland, it’s a question we hear a lot.  Because cosmetology professionals know that Aveda stands for high quality, from our classroom environments and commitment to our students, to compensation packages and respect in the industry. So what does it take to become an Aveda beauty instructor?

Actually, it takes a very qualified, very special individual. 

Do you have a commitment to excellence in everything you do? Do you like to inspire others to become the best they can be? Do you like to nurture creative capabilities in others? Do you have a firm grasp of the skills and practical techniques that hair stylists, cosmetologist, estheticians or makeup artists use every day? Great!

Of course, there are some basic requirements, as well. You need a high school diploma and a full cosmetology license in the state of Oregon or Washington, depending on the campus you are interested in working at. You also need to be able to obtain an instructor’s license within two weeks of being hired by Aveda Institute Portland.
