Our Team

The educators at Aveda Institute New Mexico are some of the most highly skilled, highly educated and experienced professionals in the business. However, they don’t rest on their laurels. All of our educators go through multifaceted yearly training to keep up with the latest techniques in cut, color, and leadership.

Our educators are masterful, but also personable. They have been known to volunteer time to help students with projects like fashion shows, field trips, donations, photo shoots, and community outreach. They are some of your first and most important relationships in the Aveda professional world, and they strive to develop those relationships to make learning impactful.
