Why Aveda?

The Aveda Difference

Aveda was founded on the belief that all things are connected. It was founded on the idea that beauty is about more than simply looking good, but it’s about feeling better about yourself too. The Aveda culture is less about the bottom line and more about making a difference in the world.

As an Aveda Institute, we strive to set an example for environmental leadership and responsibility through partnerships to reduce waste, student leadership opportunities to promote green living and wellness, utilizing cruelty-free vegan products, and organizing humanitarian efforts for our communities and beyond.
