Year after year the Inspire Greatness Aveda Institute strives to break records and win awards. If “Inspire Greatness” is a part of the name, then it’s something we have to live up to as a school! This year was no exception for us as we’ve found more ways to continue to excel. Here we’ll highlight some of the awards that we’ve received in the past year.

Salon Today 200 Awards

The Salon Today magazine has an annual awards issue called Salon Today 200. These awards are designed to identify exemplary business practices and standards in beauty schools. This year, Inspire Greatness was privileged to win two awards and are honored to be selected above all of the great schools considered in 2017!

Salon Today 200: Philanthropy

The Salon Today 200: Philanthropy award is given to beauty schools that lead with their hearts. Schools that win this award search their communities for causes where they can make a positive change. These schools help their communities out of the goodness of their hearts. At the same time this service can grow the business as the school becomes a force for good in the community. Inspire Greatness was one of the schools to receive the award this year, and a picture of our Denver students making sandwiches for a good cause was featured on the website!

Salon Today 200: Technology

The Salon Today 200: Technology award is given to schools that use innovative technology to improve the cosmetology industry and keep salons running strong. Inspire Greatness has worked hard to maintain a lead on cutting-edge technology, and this year we received the award for it!

STAMP 2017 Awards

The STAMP 2017 awards are also put on by Salon Today. This award is a national-level recognition and celebration of schools that use the best marketing and promotions in the country. This year Inspire Greatness was given a STAMP 2017 award for our inventive use of Snapchat geofilters!

Modern Salon Excellence in Education

Here is Modern Salon’s description of the excellence in education award:

“MODERN SALON Media has collaborated with the American Association of Cosmetology Schools (AACS) to develop MODERN SALON’s Excellence in Education program. The purpose is to help the professional beauty school community gather, share and celebrate examples of great salon education experiences and beauty career development happening across the country.”

The program is very comprehensive, and this year Inspire Greatness Aceda Institutes were selected as a finalist for three different categories: placement, school culture, and technology. We’re so proud of this accomplishment!

The Importance of Winning Awards

Inspire Greatness strives to be more than just a beauty school. Living up to that name can facilitate a higher quality of cosmetology education. Reach out to us for more information on the things we to do be a stand-out school on a national level!
