“Aveda has opened my eyes to a whole new perspective on the beauty industry. The way Aveda promotes being healthy and environmentally friendly is something I am extremely proud to be part of” – Amy Sidoryk “Tomorrow marks one month that I have been attending Aveda Institute. In 2 days I will be doing my very first haircut. That’s right. I’ve been in school for a month and am already going to cut hair. This is how hands on everything is. I feel in one month that I have learned more than I ever dreamed of knowing.” - Amy, Born To Style Winner 2013 “Aveda has become my home and my saviour. The educators, staff and institute have all helped me give direction and a purpose in life that I would not have found if I had not stepped into this building. Everyone here is amazing and I will forever be grateful for Aveda giving me a chance.” – Kirby Burke
