Aveda North America Artistic Team

We are a proud part of the Aveda North America Artistic Team, and our students are lucky enough to benefit from instructors who are experts in their fields. As part of the artistic team, we are responsible for advancing Aveda beauty education by developing specific programs for North America.

Our five beauty professionals on the team have specialties varying from makeup, skin care, and spa treatments. They are given the resources to confidently educate students, consumers, and other schools about Aveda’s treatments, products, and programs.

To our instructors, Aveda isn’t just a brand, it’s a lifestyle. We are so excited to have such passionate individuals on our team and hope they can inspire current and future students to be just as passionate about beauty during their time with us and beyond.


At Inspire Greatness Aveda Institute, we have a wide variety of programs designed to cover an array of opportunities within the beauty industry. Depending on location, we offer:

We have four locations, based in Denver, Provo, Phoenix, and Tucson. Check out our locations to see which specific programs are offered there, and see if it might be a good fit for you! You can also contact us to book a tour and get a feel for the school culture.

We know how important it is to not only be passionate about beauty, but to find the school that feels right for you. Our students can expect to have access to a lot of fun opportunities during their time with us. We value our education but want our students to enjoy themselves as well!

Inspire Greatness Aveda Institute has four locations found in Provo, Denver, Phoenix, and Tucson. Each location is unique, with different regional and cultural influences. We are proud to have such diverse campuses and encourage our students to express themselves and their cultural backgrounds. Whether it’s a college town like Provo or a bustling metropolitan area like Denver, our students have access to numerous local events and activities.

Fashion Week

Have you ever dreamed of attending fashion week? For New York Fashion Week, future professionals or graduates are able to learn at the Advanced Academy in New York by attending workshops for Aveda Runway Essential Styling or Makeup workshop.

These students then have the opportunity to work alongside the Aveda hair and makeup teams at New York or London Fashion Week runways. There is a competitive application process and outside fees to attend, but we encourage our students to apply themselves for this once in a lifetime opportunity!

North American Hairstyling Awards

Our students also have the opportunity to compete in the North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA). Much like fashion week, there is a competitive application process and outside fees, but this is another once in a lifetime opportunity we see a lot of value in.

Students who participate shoot their work with an industry photographer and work with the Inspire Greatness Artistic Team. This work will then be submitted to NAHA in the Student Hairstylist of the Year category. To date, we have had 18 NAHA nominees across our locations, and four winners! We are proud to educate such dedicated students and can’t wait to see where their futures take them.

Study Abroad

Grab your bags, because we have a study abroad experience! Current students and graduates are chosen through a rigorous application process to participate. You could have the chance to learn from Aveda masters in other countries and to experience a brand new culture. So far, our students have had the chance to travel to Madrid, India, London, Berlin, and Japan. Where could your study abroad travels take you?

Sustainable Learning

Our mission at aveda is to care for the world we live in, from the products we make to the ways in which we give back to society. At Aveda, we strive to set an example for environmental leadership and responsibility, not just in the world of beauty, but around the world.

– Horst Rechelbacher, Founder

Since Aveda’s founding in 1978, they have strived for environmental sustainability in their practices and products. Aveda has also partnered with different charities, such as charity:water. So far, Aveda has helped to raise over $1 million for charity:water, and over $60 million since 1999, through various events and products.
