Our 1,600-hour cosmetology course can help you unleash your inner potential as you explore and master the practical skills required for a career in cosmetology, such as hair styling and cutting, chemical restructuring, the care of skin and nails, makeup, and related sciences. You may enter The Institute of Beauty and Wellness with a passion, but you’ll leave with a deeper potential of success.



To help you prepare for your future upon graduation, we utilize an educational methodology that is unique to The Institute of Beauty and Wellness. We feature a module program that assists you in mastering the practical skill in our Aveda Clinic Lab as you are learning the theory and lecture element of each milestone. When incorporated with our smaller class sizes, this type of module program can allow you to hone your skills faster than you would have believed possible.



Our online curriculum system, called LearnAveda, is filled with training options and updates that can see you through graduation. When you enroll at The Institute of Beauty and Wellness you will receive your very own iPad to access this amazing platform as well as access to help your skill stay fine-tuned and in demand.


At The Institute of Beauty and Wellness, we bring in guest speakers to help you master and fine-tune your future. These speakers are available not only to our current students, but also to our alumni throughout their career, meaning you receive an education that lasts a lifetime.

We strive to build successful stylists both inside and out. That goes beyond the skills you learn today. It’s the skills you master tomorrow and the personal journey of wellness and self-discovery that defines your success, your goals, and your passions.
