Aveda teaches future cosmetologists state of the art methods in many skillsets because we are ranked in the Top 10 of Cosmetology and Beauty Schools in the state of Maryland. For that reason, we teach cosmetology students cutting techniques, cosmetic chemistry, and coloring. As a result, Aveda’s future cosmetologists are career and salon ready by their graduation from our Cosmetology school.

Additionally, cosmetology students will have the opportunity use top of the line Aveda products with naturally derived ingredients. Subsequently, generating a rich knowledge in Aveda products and superb customer service techniques.

As a result, this program prepares future cosmetologists to advise clients on how to care for their hair at home. This means that not only will you know what product is the best recommendation for clients but also how to market/sell.

More importantly, we are globally aware and our products are kinder to the planet than traditional products. This means that Aveda’s products are better for the Earth as well as hair.

About our Program

Aveda’s class sizes are around 15 students per class because we believe smaller class sizes allow each future cosmetologist to receive personalized instruction with close attention to detail. Usually, an aspiring cosmetologist may find that most freshmen courses often contain upwards of 20-25 of their peers.
