Aveda Institute Maryland’s esthetics program is specifically focused on health and wellness principles! We teach our future estheticians holistic approaches to improving skin and promote better overall skin care practices. This program is VA approved and financial aid is available via the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) if qualified.

In addition, we use Aveda branded naturally-derived products to encourage overall wellness during each treatment. Each product that Aveda creates is not only safe for the skin but cruelty-free and environmentally friendly! Future estheticians have the opportunity to create custom experiences for every guest using a skincare line that caters to an individual’s uniqueness and needs.

We prepare future estheticians to advise clients (using Aveda’s Points of Difference) on how to care for their skin at home and maintain a healthy regimen. They can learn what product is the best recommendation for clients and about soft product marketing and branding.

About Esthetics

Our program’s instructional method consists of lectures, demonstrations, role-playing, and many more instructional styles to meet the needs of various learning styles. Moreover, we offer each student hands-on work, live demonstrations, and *practice in the clinic. In order to complete the picture of Aveda’s renowned services and wellness, students receive the full Aveda Experience! Our goal is for students to be 100% knowledgeable on all things including skincare and be well-practiced in the spa.

The Path of an Esthetician

While our training can make a student an ideal candidate to practice under the Aveda brand salons and spas, students can specialize in other areas such as Facial/Skin Care Specialist, Waxing Specialist, Wellness Consultant, Aveda Educator, and Aveda Freelance Artist.

Moreover, esthetics is an interesting field to pursue because it can lead to so many rich career choices. By the time students graduate, they will have a clinical spa experience. Meaning that if they wanted to choose careers (after licensing) in paramedical esthetics or state board inspection they may be qualified to apply.

Furthermore, graduates can branch out into marketing fields such as cosmetics and beauty. Likewise, there are even more opportunities in purchasing, consulting, and management. We teach our students to think outside of the box when it comes to their education and careers. 

In fact, for a quick look at what our esthetics students learn and do, check out our DIY: Facials at Home.  Each student can learn unique Aveda facial processes that can relax and even put clients into a restful nap. As a result, facials are one of our popular services among guests.

Additional Program Information

Aveda’s class sizes are around 15 students per class because we believe smaller class sizes allow each student to receive personalized instruction with close attention to detail.
