We are eager to announce the individuals who will be moving through to Phase II of this scholarship contest. The originality showed for the inspirational looks was exciting along with many of the unique stories we read through applicant’s essays.

FIRST – Congratulations to each of our Finalists!


Finalists will attend select model days at Douglas J Aveda Institute where they will bring a model of their choice to do a before and after look on that they will document along the way.

Contestants work alone on their model and must bring all of their own supplies, tools, product and clothing & accessories needed to prepare the look.

Each Finalist will provide a final submission that will be judged by a panel of licensed cosmetology educators.

We will be announcing our scholarship winners on March 15th!

THANK YOU to all the high school seniors who submitted their application for our Natural Talent Scholarship.

As a reminder, all participants who have entered and completed all the application requirements for the Natural Talent Scholarship Contest will receive a $1,000 scholarship! Each scholarship can be used for a 2022 Cosmetology Program at Douglas J Aveda Institute.
