Why Douglas J?

We Set the Bar

You have a lot of choices out there, but the experience you’ll gain from a Douglas J education is like no other. With the Aveda methods behind everything we do, our students enter the industry with superior technical and professional standards. In fact, we often hear from salon owners that our new graduates surpass their more experienced service providers with other training backgrounds.

The Ultimate Classroom

Because we operate award-winning salons and spas, we also teach the business best practices that ensure success. Your time on the clinic floor is not just about performing technically excellent services on our guests, it’s about teaching you about the consultations, retailing skills, language and more that make a successful service provider. We know what salons expect and need in new talent, and we mold our students into the ideal employees we know they’re looking for. We’re shaping the craft through business.

We Care About the Environment

Aveda’s environmental efforts include recycling, using organic ingredients, sourcing ingredients in a sustainable manner that supports the plants and indigenous communities around the world and more. Their products are manufactured with 100% wind power, and every April we help raise money for clean water around the world. (Aveda has raised $69 million since 1999 worldwide – learn more about Aveda’s environmental fundraising here.) We’re proud that we do our part.

We Connect You with a Career

With the Aveda name and network behind you, you graduate with instant name recognition and connections. Hundreds of salons visit our Institutes for our career fairs throughout the year.
