So, you’re thinking about attending beauty school this fall? We (obviously) think this is a great decision. But let’s be real, the application/enrollment process is a little bit daunting. It can be hard to know where to start. Take a deep breath and don’t worry. We’re here to help you out!

Find Your Passion

Before you do anything else, you need to decide what you want to pursue. Think about your passions and goals. Are you more interested in hair, nails and makeup or would you like to specialize in massage or skin care treatments? Do you want a job that allows you to work evenings and weekends? Would you like to be able to work from home? These are all things to consider before beginning the application process.

Explore Our Programs

At Douglas J Aveda Institute, we offer Aveda-infused programs in cosmetology, esthiology and massage therapy. Before you make a decision, keep in mind that we don’t offer all three programs at every location. That way you can choose a school based on the program you’re most interested in. Our curriculum is designed to teach you in-demand beauty techniques and valuable business, social media and networking skills. We want you to be successful in the classroom, but more importantly, we want you to be ready to enter the working world.

Learn About Our School

When you choose us, you’re not just choosing an Aveda education, you’re becoming part of the Aveda family! We care about creating an inclusive space that welcomes (and encourages) creativity, individuality and growth. On top of that, we also place a huge emphasis on sustainability and protecting the environment. Since its inception, Aveda has been dedicated to eco-friendly practices. Between recycling efforts, organic ingredients and sustainable sourcing, we take our responsibility to the planet very seriously. In addition to our focus on the environment, we’re also active in the communities around us. From local charities to national foundations, we want to lend a helping hand wherever we can. Take some time to learn about our school before you apply. We think it’s an awesome place to be!

Schedule Your Tour

Once you have a good idea of what you’d like to study, it’s time to book your tour! This is a great way to get a feel of our campus, meet staff/instructors and learn more about the beauty industry as a whole. While you can always call and ask us questions, coming to visit in person is the best way for us to get to know each other. It’s also the perfect opportunity to ask questions and get all the information you need prior to the application process!

Apply to the Program

After you’ve chosen your program and learned more about us, you can apply to Douglas J Aveda Institute! Contact an admissions representative to find out how to get started on the process. We know there are a lot of beauty schools out there, but we’re so happy that you’ve chosen us for your future in beauty!
