What Makes Portland’s Aveda Institute The Right Choice

Do you dream of being a hair stylist that doesn’t just follow the trends, but sets them? Do you want to work in a salon that attracts clients that demand the best? Do you want to work with products that respect the environment and have naturally derived organic ingredients? Then you have to be very careful in how you select the right cosmetology or beauty school for you.

You want a school that is invested in YOU and wants to help you achieve the goals and achieve the standards you’ve set for yourself! If you live in the Portland OR or Vancouver WA area, you’ll want to take a close look at Aveda Institute before you make your decision about where to go to beauty school.

Commitment To The Environment

First, let’s look at the products you’ll use in your profession. Aveda is a pioneer of holistic beauty and a champion of environmental responsibility. Aveda is also a cruelty-free brand and has been since our founding in 1978. Most of our product packaging is made with plastic derived from plants and we use as much post-consumer recycled content as commercially possible. Even our manufacturing plant is certified as a wildlife habitat by the National Wildlife Federation.

Commitment To Students

At Aveda Institute Portland, we believe students learn best with hands-on classwork and a structured curriculum. You’ll learn in an interactive and engaging way. You’ll have access to video demonstrations, digital resources and all the tools you need outside the classroom so you can hone your skills and become the beauty expert you want to be! 

Basics And Business

If you want to be a hair stylist, cosmetologist, manicurist or aesthetician, you’ll also need business knowledge to help you succeed. This includes how to listen to clients so you can surpass their expectations. How to develop time management skills and build your clientele so you maximize your earning potential. How to work with others effectively. And so much more.  Yes, you’ll learn the basics. But you’ll learn the life skills and business skills you need to establish yourself as a success from Day One. 

Make An Informed Decision

Before you sign on the dotted line to attend a beauty school, take the time to tour several different schools. Meet with the administration and ask questions about the curriculum and the instructors. Ask about placement opportunities and hiring statistics after graduation. Check out their online reviews. Do your homework and research, because where you go to school can make all the difference in your future success! You can take a virtual tour online and then schedule a tour at Aveda Institute Portland and at our Vancouver campus!
