The following is a start, and when you want to know more, we’re here.

Are my learned skills transferable to other non-Aveda lines?

Yes! Although Aveda has its own special techniques, in addition to basic technical skills, Aveda teaches the basic students need to adjust to different beauty lines. Moreover, Aveda teaches students how to go above and beyond basic requirements and can help students grow their own brand. Above all, once graduated, we strive to provide students with the essential technical skills as well as those “critical to success” soft skills.

What kind of career/job opportunities are available?

At Aveda, you may have many career opportunities regardless of what program you complete. While we cannot guarantee employment, you may choose where your future takes you, whether you want to own your own salon/spa or do commercial work. There’s often a fit for everyone! Importantly, no matter your story, we think you will find the beauty and wellness industry exciting and creative. You owe it to yourself to “Do What You Love, Love What You Do.”

What makes Aveda different from other beauty schools?

You have a lot of choices out there, but the Aveda Institute education can provide a unique perspective. With the Aveda methods behind everything we do, our goal is to prepare our students to enter the industry with the necessary technical and professional skills. While we cannot guarantee employment, we have salons and spas that often want to fill positions with our students. Check out those salons and spa on our future opportunities page.

Due to COVID-19, our classes have moved to a hybrid style where our theory is taught online and our practicals are taught face-to-face. Thus, the majority of our tours will be handled virtually to protect future students, and our current students and staff. To illustrate how those tours work, please take a look at “What’s a Virtual Tour Like at Aveda Institute Maryland.”
