Your Student Life

As a student at Aveda Institute New Mexico, your life is divided between the classroom, the floor, and your community, and we work hard to incorporate the Aveda mission into every part of the student experience.

This includes nurturing your inner and outer beauty and making time for daily wellness breaks, nature walks with instructors, yoga, and meditation. As a part of a comprehensive education experience, we work with the Lung Force Association and the Heart Association to develop healthy living habits in our students, from eating well to managing stress and taking care of yourself.

And, of course, we exclusively use Aveda’s products and service rituals in all of our training as well as in our full-service Salon and Spa.

Setting You Up to Soar

Our campus embraces modern technology. Every enrolled student is provided with an iPad that is pre-loaded with course textbooks, on which you are able to complete virtual assignments, view tutorial videos and more.

Our curriculum is comprised of a combination of classroom learning and hands-on model experience, eventually graduating from the teaching floor to providing services in our full-service Aveda Salon and Spa.

We want you to graduate as a competent person, both behind the chair and out in the world.
