FAQ:

Why is the program 1200 hours?

There are no short cuts when you’re learning any craft! At Aveda, we believe in the highest quality of education that has a world renown reputation, we believe in giving you the proper foundation while giving you lots of opportunity to work on real guests throughout your 10 short months with us. Aveda graduates pride themselves on having the best technical training, professionalism, and most placeable in a high-end salon environment. Check out our testimonials!


Do I need my license for hairstlying?

Not in Vancouver! Students can be placed in a salon right after graduation or during their program. It is advantageous to get complete hours comparable to standards across Canada who require a license to practice hair (Calgary 1400 hours, Winnipeg 1400 hours, Toronto 1500 hours). Our close network of salon owners love the quality of our graduates.

TESTIMONIALS

"The educators have been so supportive and motivating! They are a wealth of information and amazing mentors to learn alongside! The program deepened my understanding of the principles of hair cutting, built up my confidence in vision crafting and so much more! My favourite part was learning the Aveda colour line and pairing it with various colouring and highlighting techniques to complement haircuts and skin tones. It's been a stellar experience!" Cherina C.

"I absolutely love everything about the Aveda Institute. Being at Aveda, for me, is about choosing my path and making my dream of becoming a hair stylist a reality. The educators expect a lot out of the students because they want us to be successful. We are taught about more than just cutting hair; we are taught about health, wellness, ecology, ethics, team work, passion and dedication to the craft. The Aveda program challenges me in a way that my traditional university education did not. The program fosters self-confidence through knowledge delivery, study, testing and finally the reward of seeing that my hard work and persistence has paid off. So far, my favourite part of the program is seeing myself grow. The 'Aha!' moments. During my last haircut, I was able to understand the shapes, angles and techniques with little guidance and able to see my technical mistakes and correct them before my educator's review. It's an amazing feeling when you finally just get it." Jessica L.
