Our Philosophy

Lifelong learning and education are the basis for personal, professional and team growth. All of our staff are highly trained and are dedicated to continually updating their skills. Our puretalent Training Program and the weekend Advanced Academy classes are all apart of expanding our technical skills and our minds. We’re changing the world of beauty, one hairdresser at a time.


What We Do

On Sundays and Mondays, the Aveda Academy Denver offers advanced training courses for licensed professionals. Our classes are professional education services that offer network partners an on-going opportunity to enhance their skills in order to provide their clients with the very best possible service. Aveda Academy Denver courses are led by Aveda global artists, educators, editorial artists, the Aveda Academy Denver Style Council and salon owners who set the tone and direction for technical innovation, fashion and service delivery around the world. Our classes are approved and regulated by the Department of Higher Education, Private Occupational School Board.

Every 8 weeks we carefully chose 3-5 licensed hairdressers to participate in our puretalent Training Program. This is an intensive 32-week apprenticeship covering all aspects of hair dressing- cutting, styling, coloring as well as business and communication skills. Our trainers, Aveda Purefessionals and the Academy Directors, supervise all of their work. Our goal is to provide the Aveda Network salons with well-trained, proficient and professional hairdressers. The top of each class is offered a chance to audition for a chair in our Academy Salon at the end of their program.
