Summer is the time of year that most people get really excited about. The weather is warm, the sky is clear, and the water is so refreshing for a swim. If summer is a vacation from school for you, then you know that routine is a thing of the past. Going to bed at 2 am and waking up at noon becomes the norm, and you get out of habits that can make you a rock star student. Having fun in the summer sun is totally okay (and absolutely recommended!), but before you know it fall will roll around again and it’ll be time for school! Every beauty school schedule is different, whether full-time or part-time, so here are some general things you can do …

Beauty isn’t just a job or a career at Inspire Greatness Aveda Institutes, it’s a way of life!

Anne Skubis is one of Inspire Greatness Aveda’s greatest success stories! Her journey has been an inspiring one, and we’re honored that she is a permanent part of our staff and family. We hope you enjoy getting to know her in this blog as much as we did!
About Anne Skubis

She tried a few different jobs in retail and management, but didn’t find anything especially fulfilling.

If you have driven anywhere near the Inspire Greatness Aveda Institute in Provo recently, you probably noticed that much of the road is under construction! While we may not love the eyesore that construction brings, we’re very excited for the completed project. This construction project will be bringing the new Utah Valley Express (UVX) transportation system right past our school!
What is the UVX?
The UVX is a new style of bus transportation that is scheduled to open the first routes in August of 2018. What makes this system unique is that it uses large accordion busses that have dedicated lanes to speed up transit times. The buses are hybrids, using both electricity and gasoline, which can help cut down on emissions and …
