Esthetician School Curriculum

Our training in skin care is as well-known as the Aveda brand, reflecting the shared values of environmental stewardship and responsibility. Inspire Greatness Aveda Institutes is proud of its place in the health and wellness sector. Our team of experienced and knowledgeable instructors teaches students the latest skin care techniques during our 600-hour program. Our combination of classroom teaching and hands-on experiences helps to create confident estheticians who understand the principles and ingredients that go into high-quality skin care. Some of the skills students will learn include:

  • Facials
  • Facial massage
  • Skin treatments and masks
  • Detoxification massage for lymphatic drainage
  • Waxing and hair removal
  • Aveda brand product knowledge
  • Makeup application
  • Client relations

The instructors at Inspire Greatness Aveda Institutes cultivate a supportive atmosphere where students can learn individually and collaboratively. People who are attracted to helping others and providing personal care can find a fulfilling career in skin care. Estheticians understand the importance of maintaining healthy skin, as well as the rigors of proper hygiene. Many of our students were previously trained for jobs in the healthcare sector.

We like to expose our students to experts and high-impact professionals with master series demonstrations at our Denver campus. This allows students to experience the art and science of esthiology and to understand how research, innovation, and practice can develop signature styles and techniques. These demonstrations make for excellent networking opportunities for students. We also offer skill-building workshops and career fairs for students to meet and chat with skin care professionals, salon owners, corporate recruiters, and others in the fashion and beauty industry.

In addition to these opportunities, some of our students enroll in our study abroad program. Others get a real taste of the pressure and excitement of the beauty industry by working backstage at runways for New York and London Fashion Weeks or assisting Aveda brand professionals at the North American Hairstyling Awards.

We prepare our students for success by requiring them to get hands-on experience performing services in our campus clinic. The best way to build confidence and skills is to take advantage of the opportunity to work with real clients. Our clientele comes from all over the Denver metropolitan area and seeks our high-level salon experiences in skin care, hair styling, and massage. In this setting, our students experience a variety of skin types and clients. With the guidance of our instructors, students learn a great deal about the business of skin care and client relations. Students also learn a lot about themselves, including how they like to work, which techniques they prefer, and where their talents are most engaged.

For students who wish to pursue additional educational opportunities after the initial 600-hour esthiology program, Inspire Greatness Aveda Institutes offers a master esthiology program at our campus in Provo, Utah. This is a great way to add to an initial skillset with specialty classes, including:
