Noelle Sanborn - Director of Education

Noelle Sanborn is the Director of Education at Aveda Institute Portland

Noelle has been in the industry for 30 years and has been teaching for almost 2 years. She attended beauty school in Washington State and is most passionate about education and growth. For Noelle, the beauty industry chose her before she chose it! From the time she was 14 years old, she knew she wanted to color hair. This industry has allowed her to express her individuality and creativity while always moving forward! Her favorite part about working with students is watching them develop their knowledge, skills and confidence. She finds inspiration in education and regularily seeks opportunities to advance her skill set. She does this by attending hair and makeup shows, and continuing education courses every chance she gets. She also learns from her peers, which motivates her to inspire her own students! Her proudest moments in her career so far was opening her own salon and watching her first student graduate!
